    I thought about mentioning it

    "Yesterday"


    name these tunes*

    If you try to drive I'll tax the street, if you
    try to walk I'll tax your feet......


    let

    me

    take

    you

    down


    I was alone I took a ride didn't know what I
    would find there....


    but if you talk about destruction don't ya know
    that you can count me out


    all the lonely people where do they all come from

    and in the end the love you take is equal to the
    the love you make.

    Pick up a set of headphones and listen from Because through Her Majesty on Abbey Road. It's absolutely the best bit of music in recorded rock history.

    Yeah, but can you support that scripturally?

    The Bible seems to reccomend the Beatles

    Lev 11:22 "Even of these you may partake, - the Beatles"

    No one can pack as many melodies, ideas and simply brilliant transitions into a single tiny space as the Beatles did.

    How can someone with an email address of "midnight rider" (CLEARLY a reference to another great band--Allman Brothers) say such a thing about those danged Beatles?!?!
    [​IMG] [​IMG] :D [​IMG]
    Seriously, I'd have to agree with your opinion about the specifics of their talents. But I'm one of the VERY few folks of "their" generation that wasn't completely blown away by them. Go figure.
    My hubby saw them in concert though! And he said they were INDEED the Fab 4!

    Music Ministry » The Beatles are the greatest rock n' roll band of all time. :confused:

    "Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first - rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me." --John Lennon

    I never claimed they were great men of God. They were great musicians.

    Certainly Clapton and Duane Allman and their contemporaries were gifted virtuosos, but the Beatles pushed the limits of what could be done with music. Most artists are content to milk an idea or melody. But take a song like Happiness is a warm Gun you'll see 3 distinct, complete transitions withing 2 minutes and 40 seconds in just one perfectly cohesive song structure. That was the Beatles. Everything they did was top notch.

    Yep. Even the media hype which preceded their rise to fame. Could it be they would have been nothing without it? Sorta like the Monkeys? (Both were appropriately named BTW)

    Top notch .....junk. I reckon them to be right up there with a chunk of someone's discarded chewing gum stuck on your shoe.

    Media attention is irrelevant. The Beatles were the most innovative and gifted studio rock musicians ever. That's a fact Mr. 1611.

    No, it is NOT a fact. It IS however your opinion of them, which I suppose you are entitled to.

    They would have been nothing without the mainstream media hype and promotion of their junk.

    Yep they definitely seemed gifted in blasphemy, and Alistair Crowley's philosophy of "Do what thou wilt," Crowley appeared as one of their admired figures on the sleeve of the Sgt Pepper's album. Lennon was antiChristian and ardently atheistic. Harrison, in his hideous ode "My Sweet Lord", deliberately altered the "Hallelujah" of the early segment to "Hare Krishna" near the end, thereby subverting the praise of the true God to become praise for a false Hindu deity.

    I have to say I am honestly appalled that anyone who names the name of Christ would have anything good to say about the Beatles or their music. :(
