Damn User, your vid is blocked in the States...

John Lennon - Gimme some Truth https://youtu.be/d5IZ16UpE7U

Love this song.. Even though Lennon was a jack of all trades songwriter and most famous for his ballads, I like the angrier and grittier stuff like this and cold turkey..

Oasis - My Generation: https://youtu.be/FProAvaEOhA

I prefer Liam's vocals to Daltrey but musically it's not as good, very hard to replicate that bass guitar for such an iconic song.

  Travis Bickle: <User not found> Marky Mark, Gimme Some Truth is probably my favorite song by Lennon's post Beatle days. My 2nd favorite track would probably be Mother. Only John could write a searing song like that!

George Harrison said that John gave The Beatles a hard edge. Songs like Rain, Everybody Has Something to Hide Except Me & my Monkey & Revolution. He was the true rocker of the band, but with The Fab 4 there's always contradictions. Lennon wrote melodic ballads like If I Fell, In My Life & Julia..

McCartney wrote rockers like I'm Down in the early days an obvious Little Richard influence.. Plus McCartney sang bad ass rough, like on songs like Hey Jude (toward the end), I've Got a Feeling & Oh Darling...

Here's John Lennon with the band Cheap Trick that really rocks! nitwit Yoko had John take it off the album & replace with another band because she felt Cheap Trick was taking advantage of Lennon's fame... : O

Here's Lennon with The Cheap Trick version.. Very heavy!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEt...

  Travis Bickle: <User not found> Here's a great post Beatle Jam that McCartney never released!? He could Rock with the best of them if he wants to..

P.S When I hear songs like I'm Losing You & this track it fires my imagination to how good The Beatles could have sounded if they took a few years off & came back to make another album or 2.. ; P

Paul McCartney - Rode All Night
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMy...

May-13-17  User not found: That 1st link is blocked!! That's the first time that's happened in ages, i don't have a clue why and i know the YouTube rules and regulations like the back of my hand. That's weird!?

Re Mother: I know it's a personal song for Lennon but I'm not too fond of it in comparison to his other solo work. I just don't think his voice can carry songs with high long notes, he's better pissed off and angry, a bitter vocal like on Gimme some truth is what i loved most about his solo stuff.. And it's the opposite with McCartney. I'm not saying Paul can't sing rock, just like I'm not saying John couldn't sing ballads, I just think McCartney has one of the best voices for medolic ballads in history and Lennon one of the best rockier voices, stick to what you're <best at> and not <just> what you're good at.. It's what made them work so well <together>, they were great enough as solo performers but together they were unmatched and odds are they'll never be equalled let alone bettered...

Greatest of all the great iconic bands. What they did in 7 years was 10x better and more artistic, progressive, powerful, popular, and unbelievably consistent in terms of songwriting ability, than any other band before or after them. The Stones have been recording music for a kabillion years and they don't come <close> yet they're generally regarded as the 2nd greatest band after The Beatles... <That's> how high they set the bar!

Nobody told me demo version. It's the skeletal version with just vocals percussion and acoustic (IIRC) and it's a little faster .also dedicated to Ringo :)

May-15-17  User not found: Yeah that's a good example Trav, I'm so tired being another one and even in "Imagine", the "You whooooo....may say etc etc" note. I'm not saying he couldn't do it, although he'd have struggled live without the double tracking and slap back echo he insisted were on most of his vocals, my point was that he's much much better with the grittier stuff than McCartney and McCartney was better at the ballads. I'm not saying McCartney couldn't rock either, I'm just pointing out he was better at melodic ballads....saying that, 'Maybe I'm amazed" has a rough sound in parts and Paul absolutely nails it perfectly.. https://youtu.be/YKwq9soya_Q he was more versatile than Lennon, I don't think that's even debatable..

I guess in 50 years when the dust settles and all The Beatles are dead, including us and our generations, history will judge McCartney as the better songwriter of the two. I saw this documentary and the upper class toffs were analysing the Beatles songs and it was McCartney's contributions they were calling genius the most because they were saying he wrote songs that were structured like a classical composer, someone who knew how to read and write music (clefs, treble clefs etc etc etc) but at the time he wrote them he couldn't.. I put Lennon as the greatest but then again it's me, I'm biased and I'm obviously gonna say that.

Plus.. If <IF> it's true he dreamed 'Yesterday' the most recorded song of all time... There's something very special, magical even, that no other songwriter in history has got close to. #GENIUS
