I heard someone talking to my young co-worker about the Beatles, so when she came out I asked her if she knew who the Beatles were and she said "Of course I know who the Beatles are, I see their billboard every day when I drive home, they're having a "meet-and-greet", one of them's name is "Steve", right?"
Who the hell were they thinking of?
Speculation: The billboard was for a radio station's drive time crew that plays all the classic hits, from the Beatles to Taylor Swift!
Well Shake it up Stevie, now

TIL, according to Lennon, "Ticket to Ride" refers to the clean bill certificate that Hamburg prostitutes would receive so that they could go back to work. McCartney's explanation is a lot more benign. I really want to believe Lennon's version as I love a sly dirty joke.

Mean Mr Mustard came on random earlier whilst out with the dog and can't get it out of my head. Someone on here said that John hated that small collection of songs on Abbey Road that are linked together (101?)

Anyway, I'm rather fond, Mustard in particular.

Might have been me that said it. He called it "junk"—a bunch of undeveloped songs stapled together. He was being way too harsh, tho. Or, rather, even undeveloped Beatles songs kick more ass than most bands' best efforts.

Agreed he was being too harsh, I'm far from the biggest Beatles fan but they were good numbers.

Just downloaded The Beatles cartoon. Looking forward to finally understanding why they were popular.

I really like Polythene Pam despite it sounding like Oasis.

I love the Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End sequence, it still gets me genuinely emotional when I hear it.

The thing I like about "The End" is Ringo's solo. He'd always rejected drum solos because he thought it wasn't proper for a drummer to draw attention like that, but knowing this was the last hurrah the others persuaded him to do it.

It is one of very few drum solos I like. It may actually be the only one.

It's as understated a drum solo as I can think of.

It's the constant bass drum I dig. I wonder what Matey thinks of it, would be nice to get a drummer's point of view on it.

To be fair, most drummers seem to appreciate how great Ringo was, it seems to be the man in the street who most commonly falls for the old "Ringo wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles" joke.

In Canada, the explanation can be fucking Rush fans. The bigger the kit, the better the drummer, duh.
