I will, if the effing price ever comes down.

Seriously - $90 on Amazon? I know there's a lot of cool stuff in it, but COME ON.

I cannot wait for the (eventual) remastered catalogue this Christmas.

I'll probably rush out to get Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, and Abbey Road fo' sho' unless there's a good deal on the complete discography.

Oh, good - there's a non-deluxe version! I've had the deluxe version on my Amazon wish list for a few months now, thinking that's the only one there was. Phew!

That movie is hilariously absurd.

"Psst! Beatle! You shall have fun, eh?"

John: "No thanks. I'm rhythm guitar and mouth organ."

I've had that movie on VHS for years - at one point I think I could quote most of the movie.

Paul: "Please say no more."

Lady: "I can say no more."

The part where George gets his sleeve ripped off by the killer hand-dryer always makes me laugh...

1 is not a bad primer as long as you're willing to delve a little more before you make a decision about them.

The thing that astounds me about The Beatles is the transformation the underwent in just a decade. You can argue whether or not they were pioneers but you can't argue that they were able to remain successful while changing their sound ("reinventing themselves" to quote a certain famous lead singer) and experimenting with different genres of music. The fact that the same 4 gentlemen did Love Me Do and Follow The Sun and Michelle AND Elanore Rigby AND A Day in the Life AND Helter Skelter AND Come Together AND... you get the point.

Yeah, the probably lost some of their audience along the way but they probably always gained more than they lost.

Anyway, versatility... just my $.02

. I fully agree with this. And personally, I both their early years and their later years. They made some fantastic songs in both eras, imho.

I've only heard a couple Beatles albums in full-Revolver and the White Album, but I certainly intend on tracking the other ones down over time. That iPod thing sounds rather interesting...

My personal favorite scene is the "John and George laugh in apprehension" which i think is the same scene.

"HO. Ho HO. Ho ho ho."

Also Paul was basically the reason that the beatles broke up. His complete jackass controlling personality pissed everyone off. He basically made George want to quit the band and actually gothrough with it for a short period of time. He tried to stifle John like hell, I mean look at Revolver. She said She said? Paul walked out. I'm Only Sleeping/Dr. Robert (btw Bono sucks at singing I am the walrus)/And your bird can sing were basically taken off the album by Paul as an attempt to sabotage John. Ok, Tomorrow Never Knows is pretty amazing and Paul did a bunch with sound effects for it, but seriously? Paul kicked John off American Revolver. Even RINGO was yelled at by Paul, i mean come on. When you yell at ringo you know you've sunken low. I simply cant comprehend yelling at ringo starr. Except to say that "Don't Pass Me By" is horrible.
