 "Don't Let Me Down" remains one of the great love songs in pop history. It's desperate, honest, and sincere.

Blaming Yoko for the breakup of the Beatles is like blaming the donut for you being overweight.

Paul McCartney said it very clearly. So stop spreading the sexist crap blaming a woman for bad decisions made by men.

Anyone who knows anything about The Beatles knows that Paul broke them up. Did they all want to kill each other? Yes. But Paul actually dissolved their relationship. So that Yoko hate gets on my nerves.

To be fair, Yoko really gets on my nerves, but she did not break up The Beatles.

What everyone knows is that blaming Yoko for the breakup of the Beatles is misogyny at its worst. You continuing to defend your sexist position only shows your own misogyny. But at least you fully own your outdated Neanderthal level of thinking.

Paul filed the legal papers. That doesn't make him any more of a jerk than the rest of the Beatles who wanted to kill each other as they grew into men needing their own lives, but it's a fact. Paul technically broke up the Beatles. The other three would have done so in short order. Those guys were going to be in a major streetfight with or without Yoko being around.

Yoko was the sliver. Whether John meant her to be or not. Paul threw the hiss fit because of Yoko.

Subby's headline is an example of why I say that the Beatles are the most overrated band in history.

Were they a great band? Yes.

Were they the best band of all time? Nope.

They certainly weren't a true Rock band either. They were the original "boy band" that performed soft rock/pop music.

What is true rock?
They did change the world of rock and had some pretty catchy tunes.
They also influenced every band in the 60's 70's 80's and well... until today.
Is true rock blues? Because that is blues.

I feel that I have to make this reply in every Beatles thread: Plenty of bands are just as great or even better than The Beatles, but there is no mistaking that they took music by storm, given their era. Do you know how many of those other bands you deem superior would not exist without The Beatles?

As for your "boy band" remark, hmmm. At the outset, with the moptops and all, sure. But have you ever bothered to listened to the later stuff? About as far from boy band as it gets, unless you want to lecture me about how awesome the Sex Pistols were. And they were an actual boy band, completely manufactured.

I totally agree with what you just said undeniably. I like when people ask the question Rolling Stones or Beatles?
I love the Beatles but the Stones are still here and still keep going. It's a quandary at best.

I wouldn't even call it a bad decision. It was over. Harrison had come into his own as a writer and he deserved more than one song an album. They all had different lives, different interests, different views about how to make money than just a few years before.

If you look at their collective post Beatles body of work there are a lot of great songs.  Fans were not deprived of anything. Yes, some are not so great, but that's what happens when you are not limited to three songs or less per album.

They  formed organically, not as a result of a producer holding auditions.
Does this sound like a "boy band" to you? :

"The Beatles' Star-Club shows were the culmination of endless hours of practice in the Hamburg scene. Between August 1960 and December 1962, the Beatles played over 250 nights in the seedy seaport city, and venues often demanded they play four or five hours a night."
From here.

I know, don't feed the trolls.

Individually, each Beatle's work was not as good as when they were all together (at least for the last 2 or 3 albums...some of that stuff was really inventive).  Maybe if Lennon hadn't taken a decade off--but I can't say I blame him for doing so.  And Paul McCartney...yeesh.  Sure, he was probably the most prolific/successful of the lot, but most of his stuff was pop pablum and not really worth anyone's time.  But, ooh!  He did get to do that song for a 007 movie!!  *wanking motion*

Once he played guitar with Rihanna and that other guy I pretty much lost all respect I had for him.  Jesus, that song was literally painful to listen to.  Probably because of how hard my teeth started to grind.
