I don't really like the Beatles long hippy hair. I prefer the mop tops.

I don't care much for Paul's solo songs.

I'm not crazy about the film Yellow Submarine.

I prefer the Moptop Coiffure as well. If you can mop your top, then you lucked out on the hair!

"Yellow Submarine" is my least favorite Beatle movie. It's weird, but I still enjoy it. I think it was created under the influence of some strong drugs.

I am not overly fond of Ringo's solo works and I never liked 1981's "Wrack My Brain." I don't care for the melody/tune of "The Other Side of Liverpool," but I love the lyrics, especially the part about Shea Stadium in 1965!

I like and respect Yoko.

I bear no malice and no ill will toward Heather and wish her all the best.

I never liked "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" or "Mr. Moonlight." I am not overly fond of "I'm Down" either and feel it does not reflect the scope of Paul's talents.

I didn't like the scrofulous beard George sported in 1971 and on "Anthology."

I think George's sister Louise is funny.

I LOVE "The Word" and the entire "Help!" album. When I was little, "Help!" was my favorite album.

I was never overly fond of "Matchbox."

I like "Boys" and "Anna."

I just HATED Paul's comment about how the Beatles could have been called "The Shoes." We all know a Beatle is a Beatle is a Beatle and a Beatle by any other name would still sound as good and a Paul by any other name would sing love songs so sweet, but I didn't like that 1964 "shoe" comment at all!

It's a shame, because deep down they had such a respect for each other's work, and such an amazing collaboration.
I think the problem is, as Ian MacDonald said the Beatles is the only 60s group with two great song writers (Im not discounting George here, just making a point). Had there been no John Lennon and this was Paul's group there would be no anti-McCartney feeling.

After all Brian Wilson was the Beach Boys, and if Paul's music could be said to appeal to Grandmothers, then what about Brian's sunny surfing tunes? He is regarded as a genius, but if another BBoy had been in the group writing darker songs, then Brian would be considered second rate, as many John fans consider Paul.
Ray Davis of the Kinks is considered a 'great', but his songs that capture iscolated moments of British life are not as great as Eleanor Rigby or Penny Lane.

As for unpopular Beatles opinions.....I'm not much of a fan of some of John's mid 60s songs like Girl, In My Life and Norweigan Wood

I hope it's OK if I sit on this bench with you. "Help!" is one of my favorite Beatles albums (granted, I have nearly a dozen favorites). I love almost every track on it ("It's Only Love" and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" are the only ones I routinely skip).

OK, I have to fess up that if offered a choice among the boys, I would choose Paul (I'm pretty sure I could deal with his brand of crazy; John's, not so much). But, and here is the unpopular sentiment, he is the Beatle responsible for most of my unfavorite Beatles songs, to wit: "Here, There and Everywhere," "Got to Get You Into My Life," "Michelle," "And I Love Her."

Whew, that was liberating.

Because that's how the records sounded at the time- some of them sound terrible in stereo- we all know the ones.

Welcome to my bench! It's getting crowded... seems like a lot of BeatleLinkers appreciate the Help! album. (Although I know a lot don't. Seems like females like it more than males. Hmmmm... )

I was surprised to learn that many Beatles fans don't like Michelle... which I guess makes mine the unpopular opinion, because I love it. (Probably because it was my mom's fave.) But I'm definitely on your bench with Got to Get You Into My Life. And I'm not crazy about We Can Work It Out, either. An ex-boyfriend spoiled that song so much for me that I can't even listen to a note of it...

I'm with you, Mick. I want Beatles in STEREO, thank you very much. The "that's how they're supposed to sound" argument cuts no mustard with me.

I agree. I'm both John and Paul fan. I think Turner did a fair job.

Paul agrees with you too and you can't be in much better company, I'd say. In a review of the remasters, Paul's take is that the STEREO remasters are what sitting in the band sounded like, in other words, what it's supposed to sound like. What's good for the man is good enough for me.

Another unpopular statement: I'm tired of John's Imagine - I prefer Mind Games!
