Thread Name: Incomplete Beatles songs
Subject: RE: Incomplete Beatles songs
It seems obvious to say that the Beatles recordings of their own songs sound great, not to everyone, that's just tastses and choice, but whatever we feel they are great pop songs.

'Yesterday' is a great song (IMHO) people can just stand up and sing it and it sounds fine. I don't think Sgt. Pepper works in that way. In fact most of the more mainstream rock songs are great rock songs but they don't 'work' acousticaly.

But further, Eleanor Rigby sounds good but the words don't realy tell much of a story. I like 'Things we've said to day' but it is a bit short in the lyric dept.

So: 1. hands off
2. add a bit
3. ask Paul to ..........?
