Early stuff maybe. Once you get up to around Revolver or so it sounds just as good today. A song like Revolution sounds good no matter when it was done.

Taxman, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Yellow Submarine, Here Comes The Sun, Yesterday

Actually, there entire catalogue is awesome.

OK,I'll give you all of the above, except for Yellow Submarine. But put them up against Won't Get Fooled Again, Magic Bus, Behind Blue Eyes, and Who Are You. IMHO, no competition.

Of course there is no competition. The Beatles knew when to walk away. They are already legendary.

In fact, with the death of John Lennon, they never became jokes of their former glory like The Stones or The Who. The worse you can say of them, is they did reunite and covered two of Johns songs as an anniversary bit. But no embarrassing reunion tours Like the Who, no sad attempts reclaim the past like The Eagles. and no attempt to to stay relevant like the Stones.

Ringo was smart enough to just stick drumming after a certain point, and just being a celebrity. John and George died at tragically, when they still had something to say, but probably not much more. And poor Paul, would have just disappeared on his farm, but he's got divorce bills.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Who, but their musical range was limited. All they could do was rock songs. Beatles covered a whole bunch of genres. From Beach music "Back in the U.S.S.R", Show tunes, "Maxwell Silvers Hammer" to Indian "Within, Without You"

Hell, I can throw in Helter Skelter as the grandfather of thrash metal. Yellow Submarine not only is a memorable song, it's one that was written for children and is actually a part of many kids musical education.

They were studio innovators and transformed albums.

TFA: The Night That Changed America will tape at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 27th, the day after the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, and will be broadcast on CBS on February 9th - exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their historic Ed Sullivan appearance.

I remember watching that show. God damn am I that old?

True, The Stones and The Who have been touring too long. How many final tours can a group have?
But the Stones added an edge to rock that the Beatles never could. And the Who? They added an anger that the Beatles never had, No doubt The Beatles were pioneers. And great in their own right. I just think their music doesn't holds up well. Post Beatles Lennon (minus Yoko) was pure genius. Post Beatles McCartney? The less said, the better.

The only Beatles song I really can't stand is "Got to Get You Into My Life".  I think it's the horns.  "Hey Jude" can get a little annoying, too, especially if it's one of Paul McCartney's live versions that go on for half an hour.

simplicimus, you are completely, totally wrong. The Who was good, but nowhere near the Beatles. The Stones just outright suck, and always have.

Darth_Lukecash: Actually, there entire catalogue is awesome.


No, it's not.  Much of their early work is bubble gum crap.  No different nor better than NKOTB of the Backstreet Boys.  Much of their later stuff is indeed incredible, but not their entire catalog, not by a long shot.

This; anything pre-"Revolver" is has aged badly (with a couple of exceptions).  From "Revolver" on, it's pretty good.
