Friends, it seems our thread has come to an end.  I still intend to gather the fatguy, Nipsey, and Shaftdaughter stuff in one post, which I'll do sometime today.  I suppose I should also save my write-ups, which no one read, before the next board "upgrade."  Outside of that, I'm afraid we're done here.  :cry:  Thanks for all the kindness and support.

Today marks two months to the day since you began.  What a run!!!:clap:

Since I never read any of Krista's write-ups in this thread, I can't wait to revisit this thread sometime when I actually care and read some of her thoughts.

Wikkid-est-pissah, biting the curds

Of a salmon that flow'd by the pier

It came too near


Look at him lurking, warning the docks

Of the fight in their cen-te-ral square 

How does he fare


All the bird-y people

Where do they all come from?

All the bird-y people

Where do they all belong?

Ah look at all the bird-y people... 
Ah look at all the bird-y people... 


Binky the Doormat, died on his perch

And was buried - so long - end of game

No-one to blame 


Wikkid-est-pissah, swiping the curds

From his claws as he caws from his cave

MoCS now has raved


All the bird-y people

Where do they all come from?

All the bird-y people

Where do they all belong?
 

 

CAWWWWesome!

Done? Why would you say that?

I'm not done here, just been too busy to post much lately. I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I wanted to post an essay that has been r&r canon for decades. It was written 40 years ago (before Lennon was murdered) by one of the most respected rock critics of that generation.

Here's the link. I think it's interesting how the Beatles were thought of then (when, among other things, they could still be brought back together) and how they are thought of now. There's obviously been whole libraries of material released since Marcus wrote his essay he presumably didn't have access to.

I confess I skimmed a few write-ups I thought might be most interesting. Did I skip over the Mongolian Cheese song? I searched "Genghis Khan + parmesan", and absent a result, I assumed it was scrapped.

1961 "...Sutcliffe leaves group to paint..." 

1962 "...Sutcliffe dies of brain tumor..."

Oof. That should be the dictionary definition of misfortune right there.

"1964:  December—Ringo’s tonsillectomy inspires worldwide vigil."  

:lmao:  As well it should have.

Thanks for posting this.  The second version of the chair is both charmingly and gloriously written.  I felt my pulse quickening as it crescendoed.  Made me, more than I've ever felt before, wish I'd been alive for that explosion.

I wasn't as taken with the third chair, but it was an interesting perspective to read, if a bit disjointed.  Boy, he didn't like Sgt. Pepper's.

Great stuff; had never seen this.

Search for "yurt" and "Yorkshire blue" instead.

A coupla three things...

Wow. I'm in awe of Krista for her commitment to this thread and for her kindness and generosity to all who have followed along with it. Not only did she crush write-up after write-up (I agree with the poster earlier who said if you put all of the write-ups together it would make a great book) but she also took so much care to respond to and include us all in the journey. A top 5 all time thread for sure and maybe/likely the 🐐.

@Shaft41 's daughter is a talent. To be able to play AND sing like that just blows me away. Can't even imagine what her ceiling is. Any more stuff of hers out there or can subsequent performances be posted here?

Can @fatguyinalittlecoat sing some more stuff? Can you sing Blackbird a cappella? You have such an awesome voice, a Dylan-esque quality to it. We could do a Beatles a cappella-off. One of us sings a few lines first and the other completes it. I'll start: I Will

Thanks again for including me. I'm just a voiceover guy just trying to replicate Beatles vocals. My buddies who can really sing mock me incessantly, albeit lovingly, when I send them these mp3's. About 7 years ago I was in Atlanta at a Rock & Roll karaoke place where you sing rock songs with a live band in front of a huge crowd. I sang We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions and caught the singing bug. The only thing I remember about the performance was looking out into the crowd and this one guy looking at me made the "L" sign with his thumb and index finger on his forehead. I didn't care. I was having too good a time just like I have here. Thanks for all the fun.

Holy ####, YES PLEASE!  I would like to insist fatguy only sing when he has I've Just Seen A Face hair, but I guess I'll accept all fatguy versions.  Please please do this.

As for the rest, your post was super-sweet, but really the thread is only good because of the other people in it.  It runs the gamut of everything great about the forum or about people in general...I just typed up a list of all this but realized I'd be repeating myself from my "acceptance speech," and everyone knows what i mean anyway.   

The impulse for the thread might seem mostly narcissistic, and there's no ignoring that, but was even more so a result of my being dead-set on finishing something I said I'd do.  In contrast, my mom asked me 15 years ago for a list of movies she should watch, and 30+ pages and eight tiers later, I'm still perfecting it.  As I mentioned before (I think), I figured I'd have a few people who were interested, but the reaction has been fantastic.  I love interacting with GBs but am even more overwhelmed to have a chance to get to know people I'd never had much or any contact with.  The cross-section of posters has been wonderful, as has been their welcoming of everyone's viewpoints.  

I'm typing too much as always, but my point is that I haven't done much here individually, but as a whole I think we've made something really special.  My impulse (which I'm trying mostly successfully to quash) is not to let the thread die only because I love so much what everyone else is posting, and the little sub-community that was established.  Thank you personally for bringing such charm to that.  And also, even though YOU don’t care, I do, so  #### that Atlanta guy and I will fight* him.

My daughter did her tryout for their upcoming concert yesterday.  This year, she's singing Elton's "Your Song".  She never wants to let us hear it when she practices, so I can't wait to hear it.  The concert is at the end of March, and I'll gladly post it here afterwards.  I'd love seeing more Nipsey and Fatguy stuff, as well as anyone else who wants to fire up a song including, but not limited to, Krista herself.

I don't want the thread to die.  I'd love continued discussion of all things Beatles.  I know there was a separate Beatles thread with more of the history of the band, but the songs talk in here has been stellar to say the least.  I start panicking when I see the thread toward the bottom of page one.  There are surely other rankings and discussion we can have, unless, of course, I'm the only one who wants such a thing, which is entirely possible.

Well, I'm definitely not gonna stop my yabber'in here, Shaft. 

Tho, K could call the fuzz on me, I guess. 

 

Seriously, now that the big show has been revealed, I plan to add a few commentaries that I've been working on. 

Also, I'm going to be seeking input from others in the planning of my on-the-scene reporting from Abbey Road On The River...that's in May. 

 

Finally, I'm not a vocalist, but if others can tolerate it, I may be persuaded to join in some singing. However, I'll need some advice on how to do the technical work...uploading and whatnot.

Eager to hear this one!  

No songs from me; I'm merely an adequate singer, and I got rid of my pianos when we moved to Nicaragua.  :(  I'd probably suck now since I haven't played in so long.  I can only offer this audio from Sunday of me laughing uncontrollably, which I accidentally uploaded to YouTube in an experiment gone awry, and now I can't figure out how to delete it.

ETA:  This was a subtle plea for a way to delete a video.  Thank you to the kind FBG who PM'd me with the info.  Poof!

Thanks for posting this.  The second version of the chair is both charmingly and gloriously written.  I felt my pulse quickening as it crescendoed.  Made me, more than I've ever felt before, wish I'd been alive for that explosion.

I wasn't as taken with the third chair, but it was an interesting perspective to read, if a bit disjointed.  Boy, he didn't like Sgt. Pepper's.

Great stuff; had never seen this.

I didn't read it that way so much - I thought he was harder on Abbey Road, which he barely mentioned, though it's now as popular as any album to newer fans - as that he didn't think his favorite aspect of the group was around anymore. Marcus got in on the ground floor - a college kid whose Beatles fandom began with the Ed Sullivan appearance - and he's always been kind of a minimalist in the essays I've read. 

That essay was written for Rolling Stone's Illustrated History Of Rock And Roll, which for decades was really the only attempt to write a cohesive history of the music. They failed miserably (the entirety of the Motown artists besides Stevie Wonder [he got two] got like 3 pages combined; the friggin' Doors got that many themselves :loco: ). But it propagated the Boomer myth that the most important rock music was white-guys-with-guitars in the late 60s/early 70s (most of whom were publisher Jann Wenner's buddies).

I think it was when he called Pepper "contrived," the music on it "not great art," and listed such songs as I Am the Walrus, Yer Blues, I’m So Tired, and Don’t Let Me Down as all being better than A Day In The Life, that I got the impression he wasn't so into it.  And yes, the second part where he writes of his personal experiences was the best part for me.  I did appreciate the timeline, too.

Oh, I agree. But when I first read this in 1980 upon the book's release, it was a consensus that Pepper's was the greatest album of all time. This essay was the first time - in an admittedly barren-at-the-time rock criticism landscape - I had seen a "pro" challenge that.

I love "A Day In The Life", though it didn't make my Top 25 (where I had "Penny Lane" at #11). I think "Don't Let Me Down" is a better record - it sounds "realer" to me and is one I'd want on my mythical Otis Covers Other Legends album. The others Marcus mentioned, not so much.

Eager to hear this one!  

No songs from me; I'm merely an adequate singer, and I got rid of my pianos when we moved to Nicaragua.  :(  I'd probably suck now since I haven't played in so long.  I can only offer this audio from Sunday of me laughing uncontrollably, which I accidentally uploaded to YouTube in an experiment gone awry, and now I can't figure out how to delete it.

ETA:  This was a subtle plea for a way to delete a video.  Thank you to the kind FBG who PM'd me with the info.  Poof!

I left my harp in San Francisco....
