Yeah I also didn't realize the beatles had the word "beat" in it. So to get back at the world, every time I hear a rolling stone's song I look at the person closest to me and completely deadpan tell them that this is my favorite beatles song. People have a hilarious visceral reaction to that until they realize im joking.

"How did the Beatles find success?" Turned left at Greenland.

How did the Beatles find success? Gratifying at first, but ultimately divisive.

I'm like the original poster. As a fan of Beatles, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and a bunch of other excellent musicians from that era, I never could figure out why anyone ever considered the Stones more than mediocre.

The Beatles' "Something."

People would like to have some unmistakeable method of knowing if a relationship is right. In the movies you can tell from the background music alone. However, there are no perfect people and no perfect relationships. We do the best we can, and if we are too demanding, we wind up alone. As the Beatles once asked, all the lonely people, where do they all come from? It's actually an interesting ...

This sounds like a great idea. I would love live karaoke! Here are some of the songs I like to sing, along with standards that I hear all the time at karaoke. I am a chick with an alto voice, so I'm biased toward songs that are in my vocal range, but here are my suggestions. My favorite karaoke songs (there might be some doubles here): Crazy - Patsy Cline Leavin' on a Jet Plane - Peter Paul ... percussion) Sunday Girl - Blondie Son of a Preacher Man - Dusty Springfield In My Life - The Beatles I Think We're Alone Now - Tommy James and the ...

Given that the two bands most often held up as the greatest in the history of Rock and Roll are also both the most commercially successful bands in the history of the genre (i.e. Beatles and Stones), it seems really stupid to lament the commercialization of good music.

What is your definition of great? Lyrical profundity? That hardly factors into a lot of people's definition of "great song", including my definition. I don't think "Imagine" is deep or meaningful, it means far less to me than something like "When I'm Sixty-Four", an earlier Beatles track you might dismiss as light. You might like a song called "I'll Follow ...

Thanks for all of the suggestions everyone! There were some great songs on there (found some wonderful music, even if I didn't end up using all of it) and some suggestions spurred me to find stuff that I thought fit even better. Here's what went on the final mix (called "Subspace Relationships"): John Denver - Leaving on a Jet Plane Buddy Holly - Dearest Fountains of Wayne - ... Cake - Let Me Go The Hollies - Pay You Back with Interest Rilo Kiley - My Slumbering Heart The Beatles - Got to Get You Into My Life Jimmy Ruffin ...

Antonio Carlos Jobim has several tunes that have been widely recorded, including "Wave," "Black Orpheus," "The Girl From Ipanema," and "Waters of March." From 1965, " O Cantador (Like A Lover)" by Dori Caymmi, Nelson Motta and Alan & Marilyn Bergman has been widely recorded. Many of the compositions of '50s, '60s and 70s recording artists like ... and the 200 other tunes from that fertile 20 year period from the end of WWII to the advent of The Beatles, that every kid with a horn has listened to ...

There's no real answer to your question Sure there is, you just didn't know it. Also, I recommend Alan W. Pollack's notes on The Beatles canon. Extremely in-depth analyses of every Beatles song, complete with lots of good melodic analysis and references to this kind of chord tone vs. non-chord tone stuff.
