Totally in my own opinion, Beatles songs in general have not aged as well as songs from The Who and The Rolling Stones.


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.

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


It seems I see this in every Beatles thread on any forum. The notion that "Revolver" is where they started to get away from the bubblegum. I couldn't disagree more. Revolver is one of my favorite Beatles albums, but IMO they lost their outdated "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" bubblegum sound with Rubber Soul. Sure, there's the "Beep Beep and Beep Beep Yeah" in drive my car, but short of that, that album is as awesome today as then. I remember hearing the song "Girl" about 5 years ago and thinking it must be Peppers or something. Some of that album sounds closer to the 70's beatles then revolver. To me "Girl" sounds like a "Peppers" tune, "think for yourself" sounds like it could've been on the White album, And "In my life,  "Norwegian Wood" and "Nowhere Man" is as good as anything on Revolver. The Bubblegum burning started with Rubber Soul.

I'll give you Revolution, thrown in Norwegian Wood, and maybe Hey Jude. What else is memorable?

Eleanor Rigby is just amazing as a story
Come Together (Aerosmith did a great cover)
Strawberry Fields Forever (I buried Paul)]
A Day in the Life (another great story)
I Wanna Hold Your Hand (young love)

De gustibus non est disputandum. Or YMMV. I find these songs eminently forgettable.


You're really not adding anything intelligent to this thread. Just so you know. . . .

I'd rather see the Beatles reunite to do a Eurythmics tribute.
