Gonna have to agree to disagree, B. In all fairness, though, I have listened to my disliked Lennon records in literally years, now; the last time I listened to Valotte was in May. Perhaps my opinions have changed. I'll find out, at some point.

Shit, Mind Games has the title track, Tight A$, Aisumasen, Bring on the Lucie, Only People, You Are Here, Meat City.

Walls & Bridges has Going Down On Love, Old Dirt Road, What You Got, #9 Dream, Steel and Glass, Nobody Loves You (When You're Down and Out).

Double Fantasy has I'm Losing You, Beautiful Boy, Watching the Wheels, and Woman.

You should definitely give them another listen, and don't go in expecting masterpieces.

Double Fantasy also has "Kiss Kiss Kiss." So uh... yeah.


Best Lennon tune? "Oh Yoko."

It's not my favorite, but hard to argue with Imagine being his peak. That's one for the ages.

VH1 Classic here in America has been showing tons of Beatles stuff this weekend as well. It's so fascinating, how they changed over the years, how their music changed, how society changed. I was all of 2 years old when they broke up, but I've always felt such a connection with them.

This thread makes me happy.

And I love Target.

And if for some reason the Target near you all doesn't do the gift card thing like I described as before, I can only say that my store is for sure doing it that way. (Not that I think those other stores won't, but you never know what some idiots might decide to pull)

I wonder if Pitchfork will do a review of every Beatles album upon the release of their remastering? Wonder if any will recieve a 10.

It is, but how many copies of each one will be available at any given Target? Their inventory for music is always hit or miss. Their music section isn't nearly as large as Best Buy's.

That is cool that you can do all of the CDs at once though. So if they do have them all in stock, I guess the thing to do is by 12 of them together, get your $30 in GC, then go back and get the two doubles and use those GCs against them so they are free. That's what, $144? That would work. And then you still have one final $5 GC for something later.

If they have all of them, that is. Who knows how many copies they will have of the earlier, less popular albums.

I planned to pick up Sgt. Peppers, White Album, Revolver, Rubber Soul, Past Masters, Abbey Road, and Magical Mystery Tour on Wednesday. But since it makes no sense to get an odd number, I guess I'll have to get Help as well. Or Beatles For Sale. I'm not sure. Hmm.

Out of those, I'd go with Beatles for Sale, if only for "Eight Sprays a Week." But Help! has "Jizzy Miss Lizzy" on it, which is right up your alley.
