Most other forums look down upon bumping a thread that is several years old. Not a rule here, but I've been put in "time out" on other boards for having done that. Other than that, though, I'm ok with it being revived, and yeah it's a good topic

Yes but it's other forums. They've got nothing to do with this board's rules. Why ask why this thread was bumped if it's a good topic?

Thanks, Billy. I've always assumed that time stands still out here in the icy wastes of cyberspace, lol.

I've heard that too, about other boards being intolerant of bumping old stuff, and never understood the logic behind it.

Anyway, onward and upward...

Because it's force of habit. I'm a member of quite a few forums.

Thanks JK for understanding.

In any case, it's done now.

Well, OK. Hopefully, in future I don't get told these things again. & to Alex, that "Newguy/nobody etc." joke is very old & doesn't even make sense. Roll Eyes If it wasn't posted, this all could be avoided. Just saying.

Now, carry on.

I'd like to buoy what Billy said. Any other forum, if I had seen a necropost like that I would  have locked the thread and given the member who necroposted it an infraction.

But here, yeah. A thread goes necro and repeat myself like an idiot.  LOL

Any other board would also give a "time out" to a poster who replies in a condescending way after a mod tells you that the matter is closed, as RR did above.

Correct. Thankfully, I'm not that kind of mod....unless I'm continually pushed

I wasn't condescending to Billy. I said "OK". What are you talking about?

I replied to Alex, that his joke was old & had nothing to do with the topic at hand. I don't even care who started thread - Newguy, nobody, whoever. I just read the OP, if it's sth. I can add, I revive it. That's all.

Looking at the list, it's quite a marvel looking at the quality of songs released by the Stones and The Beatles during the 60s.  Add the rest of the British Invasion groups and The Beach Boys also. 

I'm fairly confident we'll never see anything like that in music again.

And even if we did have the quality of songs, the production would kill it. And, on the offchance the production was good, there's hardly an industry these days, at least as far as physical media sales

Ok, here's an interesting "thought experiment". If we ever did have the same quality of songs that came from the 60's, how would we know? Think about it, the people in the 60's didn't know their music  was "special" until after the fact. What was that saying....hindsight is 20/20?  Grin

Out of the two Beatles tracks, I actually think Real Love is the better song.  Free As a Bird is cool in that it features leads from John, Paul, and George, but I think John's vocal is stronger in Real Love, and the song has a better flow to it.

The two splendid Beatles tracks win for me hands down.

Recent Stones stuff doesn't seem to register with me----sorry, Mick and cohorts.

I think most recent Stones albums have some decent tracks.  I think You Got Me Rocking (off the uneven Voodoo Lounge) could set side by side with some of their early 70s songs.  Steel Wheels and A Bigger Bang were both decent LPs.  Although the less said about Bridges to Babylon, the better.

I lose interest after the departure (and death) of Brian Jones, the one exception being the stunning Exile on Main Street...

Never liked both "Free" & "Real". I pick the Stones.
