  optimal play: <ljfyffe: this is not reading too much into the lyrics because the lyrics themselves must be carefully examined ...>

"Personally, I think you can put any interpretation you want on anything, but when someone suggests that ‘Can't Buy Me Love’ is about a prostitute, I draw the line. That's going too far."

- Paul McCartney, 1966

I expect Paul might also put some limits on interpretations of their other songs as well :)

  OBIT: Disco meets Bad Beatles Covers

If my count is right, these guys managed to work 31 Beatles songs into their medley:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgV...

Feb-28-15  ljfyffe: <MF>Never realized Lennon mentioned my name, but thanks for letting me know...by the way, it was John who said Anne Murray's was the best cover he'd heard. I can't agree that Lennon and McCartney were just Liverpool bums writing a bunch of nonsense without taking a minute to think about what they were doing, or if their music would last, as you seem to suggest.I repeat they became master craftsman because they worked hard on their lyrics together to make themselves revelant to audiences who were tired of being treated as if they were all idiots; listeners who no longer wanted to be sung down to as if they were. Paul and John's lyrics show they understood that. To examine their lyrics with that in mind, without putting words in their mouths, is not over doing it.

Well he's already changed the history of The Beatles, lol. I do like you ljyffe, I'm just saying that you're looking for something that can't be found. Anyways, you interpret Lennon and McCartney lyrics how you want, I'm just saying that I don't agree with you.

Feb-28-15  HeMateMe: worst Rolling Stones album--Satanic Majesty's Request. This was their answer to the Beatles Sgt. Pepper. what a horrible record. It has one good song--Your 2,000 light years away.

Feb-28-15  ljfyffe: <Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup/They slither wildly as they slip away across the Universe/Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind/Possessing and caressing me../Nothing's going to change my world> Except the Beatles ....

  tpstar: <Disco!> http://youtu.be/GuAfA0aEVbU

<diceman> Chic looks and sounds great. How sad to see Bernard Edwards in his final performance.

T Palmer vs W Surlow, 1998

"Knock On Wood" still rocks. Today's youth don't know what they missed.

It wasn't too bad.. If anyone says that the Beatles are not the greatest band with the greatest output of hit songs then they are not from this planet.

  Stevie King: Re: death of Nemtsov, shot 4 times in the back near the Kremlin: Umm...maybe Putin is a ruthless dictator if opposition leaders are getting whacked? I think so.
Feb-28-15  HeMateMe: yes, she's a rainbow is a good song.

This is truly awful, Kiss doing Venus and Mars:

  OBIT: <technical draw on the Disco meets Bad Beatles Covers:> No, not as bad as you might think, although I suppose that was also my reaction after my recent colonoscopy. I'd imagine the purists cringle when they hear a song like "Hey Jude" or "Eleanor Rigby" done to a disco beat, but screw 'em.

I think it does say something about the versatility of "Hey Jude" that it can be sung in so many "eccentric" ways. (I'll refrain from using the word "bad" here.) The song can be sung disco style, or Bing Crosby can perform it with his signature "buh buh boo"s, and it still doesn't sound all that ridiculous. Hell, the song probably still wouldn't sound that bad if it was done with a Latin beat and had Tiny Tim doing the lead vocals. Oh, wait, that's been done? Right here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-N...

Yeah, kind of catchy, actually....
