A phone call between him and Chad Kroeger must've taken place.

"Sie Liebt Dich" is dangerously close to Lance's Mom territory.

I really like Savoy Truffle. I like Piggies and While My Guitar Gently Weep more, though. Savoy Truffle ranks as equal to songs such as Birthday and Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey as I hear them.

If we're talking White Album, it's worth noting how incredibly phenomenal "Prudence" sounds. Not many songs have ever moved me the way this one does.

But as far as the Harrison tunes go, I'd rank them thusly:

"Long, Long, Long"
"While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
"Savoy Truffle"
"Piggies"

Wow, man. You really went for it. I'm glad to see "Honey Pie" so low. It's way, way too difficult to make a list of my own. Suffice to say "Prudence" is the top and "Honey Pie" is in the cellar. "Julia" and "Good Night" are top fives for me as well, the former being one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful songs I've ever heard.

If you hate Revolution 9, you're a philistine. I don't know a more diplomatic way of saying it. It's not meant to be a fucking pop song, it's pushing the boundaries of recorded music in an attempt to bridge the gap between pop and the avant garde, and I imagine it inspired a lot of people creatively.

Also, intedomine's rankings of the Harrison songs? Not a surprise that they're in reverse order of quality. "Bizarre point of view" doesn't even scratch the surface.

I'll preface this by saying this is all stupid and fanboyish, so skip over it if you don't want to hear some guy talk about how much he loves the Beatles:


This whole thing is really making me realize how much we take the band for granted. They've been a part of all of our lives from such a young age, their songs just beaten into our heads until they're a part of our subconscious. They were the best band of all time and there will never, ever be another like them. Even though I've heard these songs a thousand times having probably listened to them more than any other artist in my life, they're just so, so fucking good.

The Cirque show has inspired the same reflections in me both times I've seen it. They've been dissected to death, endlessly and relentlessly, but the most important thing is that these songs are just as unbelievable as the first time I've heard them. Sure, just about everyone says they like the Beatles, so it's kind of a cliche to say how much you love them. But diving into the stories and the full albums is so incredibly rewarding. Your typical Beatles "fan" doesn't understand that.

The albums are always there, sitting on my shelf waiting to be spun for the umpteenth time. They're always just as good, if not better, than the last time. But what these remasters, LOVE a few years ago, etc. make me remember is how much this music deserves to be obsessed over.

I've already been on the record in the past as saying "Revolution 9" is the tits. Not a lot more to say.

You say "take some more pictures and go back to your hotel, TOURIST".

You'd think he'd be more into Devo remasters.
