Big fan since the age of 8 from listening to my older sister's Meet the Beatles and The Beatles Second Album.

I just bought a slightly used Toyota that has satellite radio (for now, anyway), and have been playing the Beatles station. That car has a really nice sound system and those old tunes sound glorious. Every note and every word of every song is inscribed in my memory.

Hey Ragtop, ch. 18 is all I've played since I got my car a week ago.

I should go channel surfing, but I have not done so yet.

HenryJ, I switched over to the Tom Petty channel for a day, which was excellent. Then back to the Beatles.

Who needs all them other channels?

The Beatles quite literally changed the trajectory of my entire life.

Well .... the Beatles and puberty.

My best friend in high school's sister was one of those screamers in the plastic boots and plastic hat that swooned over them during their first US tour. She played their records and babbled about them constantly, which is probably part of the reason it took me awhile to warm up to them.

I make sure to play The Beatles at least once a week, usually on Sunday. For some reason their music "centers" me. I was born in '57 so they are in that sweet spot of my youth and I fondly recall spinning my sisters Beatles vinyl when she wasn't looking.

I appreciate their talents----musicianship and composition is just off the charts---- but they are not something that I can usually listen to these days.

A real classic example of "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts", IMO. Not that each wasn't very talented. But I don't think that any one of them alone really ever approached the level of what they did together.

And of course, as already pointed out, there was George Martin...

I heard "No Reply" today on the satellite radio.

Man, I haven't heard that one in decades! Great song.

A fan but I don't listen to their music like I used to. For someone who was 13 in 1964, the Beatles were a HUGE part of my growing up years.

+1 Gato and Ayns. Highest talent ever, in our generation to present. Still can't wrap my brain around their catalog. Oh yes, Sir George Martin was/ is the 5th Beatle.

j!mi> That is something I didn't know!

Look at a band like The Who. All of them are superb at what they do, possibly amongst the best ever.

The Beatles were not like that, the musicianship was secondary to there purpose.

They just don't take pinning down.

They seem like a sponge that absorbed the best of their generation and the history of music.

Can't see that happening again anytime soon!

I prefer the early stuff to the later stuff. But I don’t listen to them regularly.

"I prefer the early stuff to the later stuff. But I don’t listen to them regularly."

Agreed.

I watched the George Harrison Tribute last night on PBS. That'll hold me for another couple years.
Harrison and Ringo were my favorites of the bunch.
I'd go see Ringo ( and his all starts) again any time.

It is my opinion the Beatles derailed American music.

I love the Beatles , but for sure prefer their stuff from 66 on. More mature musicians and just less teenybopperish IMO. But their harmonies on those songs were awesome. Abbey Road was a perfect album . It shows how much they evolved in the short time they were together.

The Beatles are in a category all by themselves in greatness. I don't even really compare my favorite band, the Rolling Stones, to them, because the Beatles are on another planet.

I loved their entire career, but am especially fond of those first several albums. And Paul McCartney's contribution to both bass and guitar, has been quite spectacular.

"It is my opinion the Beatles derailed American music."

Interesting thought. But then, doesn't it take a mighty force to cause a derailment? Or at least a weak structure to begin with?

Personally I liked most of the Beatle era stuff, but definitely prefer Lennon's voice from the early days. Way more substance.
