Not sure about that
I dig the Beatles but not everything they did was great.... As a matter of speaking, 40% of their stuff was crap IMO.
If Love Me Do or Please Please Me was released today, it would be the laughing stock of YouTube..... Those two songs would had never made it to the radio today.
Well, at least it was only 40% (if you really believe that), and not 90%, like today's "Pop!"
But...We all have our "tastes." Personally, I think a lot more than 60% of The Beatles
stuff was Good/Great...but, that's just me. The Beatles, were of, and for their time, but what they
wrote, is "timeless," all the same...thank God, I was around, to experience it, first hand!
Personally, I think their music WILL last, well into the future!
I think Please, Please Me, and/or Love Me Do might well have made the radio, today. Probably in
a much more (over) produced form, with more instrumentation. They're no worse, than 90% of "Pop"
music/lyrics, played on the radio, ad nauseam, these days! But, again...that's just IMHO.
