Love You To
Along with Rubber Soul and Abbey Road, this has alway been my favorite Beatles album.

Within You Without You
George never got enough credit for his contributions to the band. Now his songs tend to be my favorites.

As you could have guessed, I love all of Lennon's work, though I'm not that fond of The Beatles themselves. You do have some great stuff here.
December 30, 2010
Then you should dig around more in The Beatles stuff because a lot of it wasn't really written as collaboration.

Paul annoys me frankly. I really can't imagine how he and John stood each other since their ideologies and personalities are so different.

Everyone says the wrong two Beatles died. They started out with more in common and grew apart like people do. Who knows, as John became more of a romantic they may have grown a bit closer again.
January 05, 2011
I don't know. Paul grew more commercial and more conservative over time as John went the opposite direction.
January 05, 2011
"Double Fantasy" was a very commercial album full of "silly love songs".
January 05, 2011
I'm not a big fan of that album either. I prefer "John Lennon & Plastic Ono Band", "Imagine", and "Some Time in New York City". You know, the earlier more political stuff.
January 05, 2011
Yeah, but that last album is what I meant about how he was changing and how they might have possibly been able to grow back together--John was mellowing out.
January 05, 2011
Maybe mellowing out musically, but not philosophically or politically. Remember, that album came out after Nixon was gone and Vietnam was over. Had he lived to see the Reagan era, I think we would have seen that fiery activist spirit come out again. Damn, I wish he had.
January 05, 2011
Even if it hadn't come out, I wish he had.
January 05, 2011
Yep. : (
January 05, 2011
Indeed. ;(

wow!! great compilation you have here, Karen. You know I can't remember # 35.... :(
December 23, 2010
It's really the same song as #34--"So this is Christmas/ and what have you done/Another year over/A new one begun/ And so this is Christmas/I hope you have fun/The near and the dear ones/The old and the young/A very merry Christmas/And a happy New Year/Let's hope it's a good one/Without any fear.

woo-hoo!! we going karaoke, Queenie?
December 24, 2010
Come on over to my daughter's house. Last year the boys got Beatles Rock Band for Cristmas.

#35 was a John Lennon song. Not Beatles.
December 30, 2010
So were 31 and 32. #33 was a George Harrison song. I included some solo stuff just for the hell of it.

I am the poster child for inertia. Where ever I am is where I plan to stay FOREVER.   So much so in fact that it took me decades to understand the punchline about why   the chicken … more
