    Default The Beatles!

    U know I'm not a fan of the Beatles. I love Hey Jude and Let It Be but that's it. But for several days lately I've been watching their videos on Youtube and seen that their music's so diverse. LIke Helter Skelter, it's pure metal LOL, songs like Lady Madonna, A Hard Day's Night, DOnt Let Me Down,... are great too. I think it's time to reeducate myself about The Beatles LOL.
    One of my friends suggest me buying Sergent Pepper Lonely Heart Club Band (?) (weird name ^). But I've come across a lot bunch of ppl who say Sergent Pepper is far from their best album and one of the most overrated album ever, they say Revolver (?) should take its place. I think I should get some advice from you ^^. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

    I'd go with Revolver or The Beatles (better known as The White Album). My personal fave is Meet The Beatles though. But that is more their early sound. The idea about Sargent Pepper was that "The Beatles" were so famous that the group wanted to make an album as someone else. At the time there were a lot of psychedelic bands with names like Strawberry Alarm Clock, ? and the Mysterians, Jefferson Airplane, etc. So they decided to have a weird name also and came up with "Sargeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". The original album was credited to them and not The Beatles. This is why they're wearing these marching band outfits on the cover. They were all supposed to have names, but Ringo was the only one whose "name" is mentioned. He's "Billy Shears". After recording a few songs, the "Sgt. Pepper" songs idea was scrapped, so most of the songs on the album have nothing to do with the original concept. The "Sgt. Pepper" album was considered groundbreaking at the time, because back then there were only 4 track consoles and not the 36 or 48 track consoles of today. It was a long slow process. In the 60s the average act released 3 or 4 albums a year and they were recorded very quickly. The Beatles 1st album took only 12 hours to record. This album took about 7 months to make, because all of the effects and the way it had to be recorded with only four track machines. During the late 60s, there was this rumor that Paul died in a car wreck and the group was using a lookalike (who also happened to sound like Paul, lol), and "Sgt. Pepper" was one of the albums that was used as "proof", because of clues contained in the songs and cover artwork.

    Hmm.. Well of course I like the classics like Hey Jude, She loves you, Help etc. etc.
    They have so many good songs! I don't actually have any specific favourite.. though Drive my car is pretty good one! One of my ultimate favourites

    The Beatles are the greatest band of all time, their my favorite band (I link Jackson 5/Jacksons to Michael as a solo artist to they are the greatest in that sense).

    My favorite Beatles album is Revolver,followed by Magical Mystery Tour, The White Album and Abbey Road. In fact all The Beatles albums are amazing.

    One of the great things about The Beatles is that they never released singles from there albums. So if you want great songs like Paperback Writer/Rain and Lady Madonna etc then you will have to by greatest hits albums.

    I knew every single Beatles song before I started listing to them when I was was 16, because my mother was a fan of theirs in the 1960's.

    There were singles released from their albums - if you count the USA versions, lol. The Beatles didn't like their albums chopped up in this way, so this is how the infamous "butcher babies" album cover came about.

    Best Beatles albums

    Early period

    Please Please Me
    A Hard Day's Night
    Help!

    From the later period, I'd recommend anything from Rubber Soul through Let it Be. They couldn't do any wrong during that period in their music career. The best albums to pick up, though (for a newbie) are Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, or Abbey Road. I'd also throw The White Album in there for good mix, although pick up any of the other albums I mentioned first, because TWA tends to take a while to sink in.

    Happy listening!

    Free As A Bird - one of the reunion songs from 1995 - is a nice song also, and the video for it is cool. But it (the video) would make more sense to someone familiar to the group. Regardless, it's a well made video.
