"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 :)
|Feb-28-15|| ||Stevie King: What would you guys think of a friend who acts like a moron but one day says, "I've been fooling you this whole time, I'm a genius." and shows you his membership card to Mensa?|
|Feb-28-15|| ||OBIT: Disco meets Bad Beatles Covers
If my count is right, these guys managed to work 31 Beatles songs into their medley:
|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.|
live version, 1990:
|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 ....|
|Feb-28-15|| ||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.
|Feb-28-15|| ||Stevie King: HeMateMe, Along with 2000 Light Years, I like 2000 Man, Citadel and She's a Rainbow.|
|Feb-28-15|| ||technical draw: <OBIT>< Disco meets Bad Beatles Covers >|
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.
|Feb-28-15|| ||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:

Stevie, Col. Mort ISIS sympathizer & his faithful sidekick Abdel will convince you that Putin is a sweetheart... ; P

Yes, Mary refers to Paul's mother, but Mother Mary is also the Mother of Jesus.>|
I made John's "Julia" about Julia Roberts.
Hey, it works for me!
|Feb-28-15|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's a song for my pal TD... ; P
Take Five - Dave Brubeck
|Feb-28-15|| ||Travis Bickle: 1 more while were at it!
Here's 1 from FAB TV... This must've been pre-Beatles... ; P
The Girl From Ipanema - Stan Getz feat. Astrud Gilberto
|Feb-28-15|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Hey! It is the first time I enter in Kiblitzer's Café, so I'm curious if the Carlsen's defeat in Grenke it was commented here. Maybe anyone may indicate me in which pages. Greetings you guys and girls!|

|Mar-01-15|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's a tune from The Chairman of the Board!! For my good pal Boz! |
This tune is for chess players everywhere when you have a won game and fall for a cheapo... ; P
That's Life - Frank Sinatra
|Mar-01-15|| ||tpstar: <Pedro Fernandez> GRENKE Chess Classic (2015)|
You could also discuss him here = Magnus Carlsen
At the moment we are hooked on Disco. :P
|Mar-01-15|| ||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:
Yeah, kind of catchy, actually....
