    About once every year so I become overwhelmed and flabbergasted by the volume of outstanding material the Beatles made. They can't be overrated. This applies to the Stones, Miles Davis, and to a lesser extent other artists as well.

    Here's unreleased Take 11 of "What You're Doing". Rough, but the harmonies are cool

    Yeah, it's easy to take them for granted since their songs are so ingrained in pop culture, it feels like they've always existed. It's good to remember that four real guys created all this stuff in about a 10 year span. I heard some Stanford academic panel on the Beatles awhile back, and one thing I remember some prof said is that their songs -- particularly the mid- and late-period ones -- have like 5 or 6 themes rolled into each song. "Day in the Life" probably has 8 or 9 mini-songs within just that one song. Impressive.

    I also admire their canny ability to be smart and funny and visually-minded as well as musical.

    my uncle's vinyl "White" album was my intro to Beatles. also, like "Let It Be" and "Abbey Road".

    songs:
    a day in a life
    revolution
    let it be
    come 2gether
    something
    here comes the sun
    long & winding road
    while my guitar gently weeps
    i will

    HELP! is such a great film, and I really love John singing You've Got to Hide Your Love Away in it.

    I'd add Here There and Everwhere to the list.

    For you Beatle fans who plan to be in Vegas any time soon, go see LOVE. Yes, it's Cirque du Soleil. But it's beyond brilliant. The way they remix and reuse the music to tell the story is insane.

    I'm also extremely partial to All You Need is Love. It makes me happy.
