I think it's somewhere around 150.

Worst song?  Your opinion, but if I had to choose, it would either be one of Macca's pieces of schmaltz or the flip side to "Let it Be", which was John's final fark-up to Paul, "You Know My Name (Look up the Number)"

I think my second worst would be The Long and Winding Road. I guess I just hate the schmaltzy ballads. Just so you know I'm not a complete Paul hater on principle, Martha My Dear is awesome.

I love the Beatles, but I also hate "The Long and Boring Song".

For some reason, I *hate* "Got to Get You Into My Life".  I don't know if it's the horns or what, but I just can't stand it.

The "Stripped" version without the stings isn't that bad.  Personally, I can't stand "Good Night" at the end of the White Album.  Even the demo version of it sucks.

My parents gave me the middle name Jude after the song. It's kinda my theme song.

I've always liked their 1967-and-earlier stuff and have never been a huge fan of the White Album, but "Martha, My Dear" is such a sweet, lovely song that I've been reluctant to listen to it since I acquired a dog of my own a few years ago.

Am now heading home and will take him fir an unexpected walk.

He's a great little dude.

I'm a huge Macca fan, but their worst songs were his schmaltzy ones:

Your Mother Should Know
Honey Pie
Maxwell's Silver Hammer

That said, he absolves himself with songs like Helter Skelter, Penny Lane, and numerous others.  Most of hs writing was from an emotional, senimental perspective.

"You Know My Name" was not a slap directed at Paul - it was a song they were screwing around with in 1967 that never got finished enough for a record.

"The Long and Winding Road" was greatly schmaltzed up by Phil Spector, much to Paul's chagrin and argument.  He's always played the intended version on his tours.  No orchestra, no choruses, no harp....

"Savoy Truffle", now that's some useless pap.

Oh, wait.  Never mind.  In 45 years no musicians or songs from the present day will even be remembered at all.

Hey Jude is the Beatles' most overrated song.
Hey Bulldog is their most underrated song.

Hey Jude is where John says "Fark it" at the 2 minute mark.

Totally agree with you on this one.  Love that song!

Hey Jude I a decent song. I can tolerate it most of the time. A lot of people have mentioned Martha My Dear.... One of my fav songs off the white album. One of other favs has to be Your Mother Should Know. I know it's a tads me but it's catchy... That and he played it when I saw him in DC earlier this month so it was stoked about that.

Don't get the hate for The Long and Winding Road. Specters version is garbage and why he chose that version is beyond me. The version that's on Let It Be Naked (also the final take of that song of I remember correctly) is a million times better

I like "It's All Too Much" with the opening feedback.

wiseolddude: I like "It's All Too Much" with the opening feedback.


"I Feel Fine" is probably my favorite Beatle song, if I had to pick one. But honestly there are about a dozen tied for first.
 
2013-07-29 07:52:45 PM
I like the way it was used in the Royal Tenenbaums.   Just as good as an instrumental.

Don't blame Paul for that, blame Phil Spector. He farking ruined that song.

2:38. and it's probably John; it might be Paul, as he was also given to leaving stuff like that buried on records.

I'm as big a Beatles fan as anyone, but Hey Jude is just a dull song with one exception.

The Love version is freaking incredible, it shortens the song to a realistic 4 minutes and adds a killer bass line that ties everything together.  And also for the record, I don't hate the original because it's long, most of the tunes I listen to (Umphrey's Mcgee, Dave Matthews Band, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Toumani Diabate, Boredoms, Battles, etc.) have really long ass-tunes, but Hey Jude doesn't need to continue for 7+ minutes.

/Let it Be is also incredibly boring.  I'm a big fan of the rest of the Beatles output.

get some serious headphones and listen to the remastered albums.  there is crazy-sounding shiat all over the place.

It's because Paul hit the wrong chord on the piano right as he sings "let her under your SKIN" John shouts out "WRONG CHORD!" ...and then follows up with "farking hell..."

They didn't have any digital editing tools or multi-track recording back then. The songs were often performed as is in the studio, and either they got them right or they did it all over again. Sometimes they couldn't be bothered and they just kept the best take.

Beatles songs are rife with these imperfections.

8-track recording existed in the mid- to late 50s.  Hey Jude was recorded in 1968, multi-tracked on a 4-track. 1968 also happened to be the year that the 16-track recorder was introduced, Tommy James recorded Crimson & Clover just a couple of months after Hey Jude on a 16-track.  The technology was definitely available, just not at Abbey Road, which was still stuck with 4.

If you don't know it, check out Peter Frampton's cover of 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'. Which is a great song in it's own right.

Swiss Colony: If you don't know it, check out Peter Frampton's cover of 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'. Which is a great song in it's own right.


Frampton came through on tour a bit ago (great show) and one of the local articles had a story he told about where he came across the talk-box thing he uses with his guitar. Pete Drake introduced him to it during the recording of All Things Must Pass. I had no idea Frampton played guitar on that until then.

How could the headline not have been "it was 45 years ago today, when McCartney taught the band to play Hey Jude"? You dropped the ball, subby.
