    Quick question about the Beatles

    Okay, the reason for this thread is that I've never found two people who can agree on what the Beatles' best work was.

    So--and don't mull this over; just answer with the first thing to come to mind!--what do you think was the one greatest album and one greatest song by the Beatles?

    Album: Abbey Road

    Song: Eleanor Rigby
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Awesome thread idea, Chux. Especially since I've been listening to them damn near non-stop lately.


    Album: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

    Song: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds



    The song was the toughest part. I wanted to put Strawberry Fields, I am the Walrus, or a Day in the Life.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    No kidding. If I'd posted it just a few minutes later, the answer could've been Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Rocky Raccoon, I Saw Her Standing There, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, I Am the Walrus, heck, any of about thirty other songs.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Though every album of theirs is good to me, my band currently does six of their tunes: "Something", "Run for your life", "Ballad of John and Yoko", "Norwegian Wood", "Michelle", "Things we said today". There's alot of Rubber Soul in there, but my personal favorite is Abbey Road. Favorite Song is "I want you" This album is their peak musically. The later stuff the songs are alot harder to play also because well, they were better musicians as they got older. This is just my (a guitarist's) point of view.

    Ugh. I started watching some of this crap the other day just to see how bad it was, and I barely got ten minutes in. They had to freakin' take every single reference in that album (and others, too) and put it in the movie. Mr. Kite, Strawberry Fields (a person???), Billy Shears, and everything else. I had to just turn it right off when the Bee Gees appeared, I mean, come on now.

    Everything from that movie isn't bad. Aerosmith's "Come Together" was quite good. However, I will grant you that it's my least favorite Aerosmith cover of a Beatles tune.

    Who aside from Caesar can be the first to name the others without cheating?
    Tommy, close your eyes.
