God I had to go back a long way to find a straightforward Beatles topic!

This is for Peter Reum (he knows why):

John, this youtube madness!  They won't let your posted video play in America!  So hard to find Beatles tracks -

This fairly good cover was the best I could do...

Happy Birthday, Peter!  Yeah, I know I'm an hour late... that's the way time goes.

I'm surprised that nobody got JK's posting of "When I'm 64" - very obvious reason to post it other than birthday greeting. Though maybe JK shouldn't be clandestine in doing so. Mr. Reum is one of the best posters & he helped Brian, writes good blog etc. Celebrate away, folks. police

Yes, HBD PR.  Cool Guy

I saw one  of those video's on Youtube that exposes kids to things outside their experience and records their reactions. Anyways, they did one on the Beatles. The biggest surprise for me was that kids responded the most to George's songs.

Those are pretty entertaining.  The mostly positive responses gives me a little hope for the future.

I remember a documentary about the Traveling Wilburys in which Jeff Lynne described George as "a magic man".

I thought it summed him up rather well...

Not a major Beatles fan but I have mono mixes of Pepper, Revolver and Rubber Soul (UK version). Long live mono!

Meanwhile, back at the Beatles Survivor topic, shameful things are afoot. "The Word" has been voted out!

Even worse, perhaps, it's not on YouTube...

I just wanted to link it here----no big deal really. Shame it got voted out...

I don't generally look elsewhere for downloads----I've been waylaid by soft porn sites once too often!

Well you can still go listen to it, no? What's shame if the song is voted out? Not to mention you don't read well - "The word" is still there but I can guarantee you that it will not win.

Usually with the survivor pool, songs don't so much get voted out because they're not liked, it's just that the other songs are stronger.  Especially with these mid 60s Beatles releases.

I don't disagree but like JK, not big Beatles fan here. For people like me, it's the matter of "dump 1st the song you really hate". As is the case with "The word".

With the possible exception of some of the filler from The White Album, I can't honestly say there are any Beatles songs I hate. 

I actually like The Word a lot.

I love it! For real though, that middle eight with organ and guitar riff, classic amazing Beatles.

"The Word" was an early Hippie anthem.  The world was more ready for the word love in 1967.  John was ahead of the pack talkin' about it in 1965.

2KDS: What's your Top 3 in Rubber Soul?

I can't stand the reedy backing vocals and go nowhere melody.
Best summation. Agree 100%.

...doesn't bode well for All You Need is Love when it's MMT's turn. 
Boring, if a little creative. Skip material. Otherwise, MMT is perfect - favorite Beatles album.

Who cares? I listen to song for music, not to analyze the lyrics if it's ahead of time or super-dated.
