Frickin' Bugs

I know it's going to get me flack, and I have said it before, but I can't stand the Beatles. I think they are a bit overrated, and I just don't see how they've suckered such a large following...

Anyway, I can't say that I don't like any of their tunes, but they are definitely at a minimum. "A Day In The Life," is probably my favorite, and that's pretty much because I like how it ends... the second to last verse is my favorite part. Other than that, right now I can't think of any other good songs. Sorry.

So I'm over at Bou's, my blogsis, and she's got a post about a video her brother sent her. It was pretty damn cool. I suggest you go and watch it if you've got better than dial up, or a couple years to sit while waiting for it to buffer...

Anyway, I'm watching this guy, and I'm impressed, when the horror hits me in waves... GAH! THE BEATLES! GOLDEN SLUMBERS/CARRY THAT WEIGHT...

And worse than that, I realized, "I like this tune..."

I think my world is falling apart.

You're killing me. I love the Beatles, especially the early stuff. I think their later stuff was kinda pretentious. It sounds good if you're stoned which I'm sure they were when they recorded it. Funny thing is, I had the Beatles in my CD changer when you visited. If I had known I would have put them on just to torture a weary traveller.

Now me, I can't abide the Fab Four either, for the most part. Almost anything by Lennon annoys me as much as you'd think any barking moonbattery should. On the tother hand, there are a few songs by Harrison that I find quite enjoyable. And there's a Richard Starkey song or two that's easy on the ears.

Additionally, other than "beast of burden", I find most of the Stones stuff is plainly irritating. Yeah, I know, it's a horrible apostacy.

Oh yeah, I can go for the early stuff, too. It's no "The Who," but I can handle it.

I liked the song because it had accompaniment! I was more fascinated by the juggler... he made the song.
