Re: AHDN - Side A - Round 1

Lennon really hit his stride on this LP...writing the majority of the tracks. The leap in their skills as writers and performers really is astounding. I'm listening to it right now and Things We Said Today just came on. Can you even imagine a track like that on With the Beatles?

My favourite Beatles album. This is gonna be tough.
Me too.
Yes! I've found a kindred spirit. Not many of us about. It's all Revolvers and Peppers.
It's a great collection of well crafted pop songs that still rock pretty damned hard.

Re: AHDN - Side A - Round 1

This is a really hard one, the tunes are all great and I like the feeling of the lesser known ones. I'm going to vote off Can't Buy Me Love as I enjoy it the least, it doesn't hit the epic note I feel like it's going for. I'm leaning in this direction. While I think it's a good song, it's never bee...

AHDB - Side B - Round 1

The second side is not as strong as the first side, but still some fantastic songs to choose from.

AHDN - Side A - Round 1

A little trivia about A Hard Day's Night. It's the only album they ever released that was 100% Lennon/McCartney. No covers, no George or Ringo written songs. John really dominates this LP. Overall, it's a fantastic pop album and the development from With the Beatles to this release is amazing. I hon...

Looks like Ringo has this in the bag. Nice to see him boss this admittedly poor side.

Re: With the Beatles / Side B / Round 6

The Stones version of I Wanna Be Your Man is great and in my opinion better than the Ringo version.

Re: With the Beatles / Side B / Round 6

This is tough: one track wasn't deemed good enough for "Please Please Me" and the other was deemed "worthy" of giving away to another band.

With the Beatles / Side B / Round 6

I'm surprised "Hold Me Tight" made it to the final...but then again this is a really weak side.

Re: No, No, Don't Worry. Racism is Pretty Much Over.

I sat behind a proud boy at a traffic stop this morning. I was driving the man's honkin' big truck and never felt such a strong urge to run someone over. NRA sticker and an automatic rifle sticker on bumpers. Asshole. Yuck. I don't know if I'm just noticing them more, but seems like a lot of these ...

Re: Heston and Marky's Friday Top 5

Let It Be was one of the most important albums of my teenaged years. It has such an upper Midwest feel to it...dreary, yet defiant.

Re: Heston and Marky's Friday Top 5

1. I Will Dare
2. Sixteen Blue
3. Answering Machine
4. Unsatisfied
5. Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out

There is not a bad track on this album (even Black Diamond).
