    Milking the Fab-cow? Analyzing the highest artistic achievement on Earth

    I think it is ok to milk the fab cow as often as needed if only because we need to figure out exactly what made the band so good. I would be very interested in reading any professional's point-of-view on the Beatles product if only to gain more insight into the bands reason for success. All the Beatles' songs are greater then the sum of their(or there?) parts. Why? Some personal observations: Good vocals, good lyrics, singing real people point of views, interesting and unusual harmonies, rhythms that never ever stepped on each others playing, they were a real music machine, and they had a deep understanding of what made 'rock' rock, and 'roll' roll - I also believe that theirs is a product of not just a time, or even a generation, but their product is an encapsulation of the entire culture of development of the Western world. Their product is the penultimate artistic palette of expression fusing the highest of cultural emotional achievements of language (i.e., poetry, philosophy etc.) with the advanced technology of electronics (recording and double tracking, instrumentation). If there is some Galactic museum showcasing the highest technical and cultural achievement of this planet Earth, then the Beatles would be THE group to showcase that.

    I wish to note that the Beatles themselves were NOT part of the 'baby boom' generation, but were all born a few years before that designation.

    instead of the greatest songs..how about greatest articles?

    I already know about the Beatles' greatest songs..and that is subjective anyway... and there are already enough books on that subject. What I WOULD pay for is a rolling stones mag with all the past articles they wrote on the Beatles...together and in their separate careers. That would be super since a lot of we Beatle fanatics were only children when they were popular. Hope a Rolling Stone editor sees this!!

    Multiple Aurgasms

    This isn't a review in the conventional sense, but a testimonial to the sheer goodness of the Beatles' no. 1 song, "A Day In The Life". Please do try this at home. When the lyrics of the song get to 'turn' in "I'd love to turn you on", start counting the beats to twenty-four and see what happens. There are two opportunities to do this. Thus, the multiple aurgasms. Enjoy!

    Yawwwwn...had enough now!

    Now this is getting tedious - every music mag on the planet has a 'Beatle issue' - a chance to milk the fab cow yet again. Well I tell ya, there is no milk left in the cow. Please you dumb editors - if you are doing a mag on the Beatles, come up with something new and original. This is aimed at the stupid list geeks who are turning music into Ikea furniture - you know, everybody has the same 'classic albums' in their collections... Do me a favour please...when it comes to the Fabs - LET IT BE!

    Ripoff

    Why would I pay 9.99 to find out what the Beatles 100 best songs were. Would you rather buy a box set containing all of those songs, one that includes this magazine at no extra cost. I'd probably pay at least 30 dollars for that. Let Paul and Yoko know that I said $30.00 (US)
