The Beatles…. I don’t get it. I’m sure plenty of the musicians that I do like are heavily influenced by them but I have never, ever got what’s so good about their music or the music and cultural pursuits of the band members. An ex girlfriend got really into them while we together. She generally had a really good taste in music and her interest in The Beatles graduated from knowing the stuff everyone knows to listening to their albums from start to finish and knowing stuff about when and where it was made etc. I can only compare the experience of listening to it and hearing about the band members as liking eating thin soup. It tastes a little bit of something but generally is bland and unsatisfying. It’s like the world wants to bang on about how great it is to just drink a heavily diluted oxo vegetable stock cube….
