You just love that fight.

Funny thing: Now Oasis is classic rock.

 

Or maybe not exactly classic. Not quote a one hot wonder but definitely like a future tough trivia answer for the 90's edition.  Collective Soul, Weezer, and Oasis.

You are right on both. And I did like Collective Soul a lot too. :)

I like Otis Redding's version of A Hard Day's Night. It sounds like he really had a hard day's night.

Great pop band,The Beatles.

But rather rudimentary musicians compared to others.

Paul was the best musician.

50th anniversary of the game changer Paperback Writer which paved the way for Revolver. Music would never be the same again.

meh, some people just don't really understand music as a whole

 

I wasn't there for Sinatra, Billie Holiday, the birth of Jazz, Mozarts opening night, birth of the blues etc, but I do understand it, appreciate it and love them  :)

That's probably why Octoburn made the original remark in the title, thinking the Beatles and Monkees were the same thing when the Monkees were a cheap tv-made imitations of the Beatles. The Beatles changed the music industry. The Monkees had a few cute songs. Oasis, Weezer and Collective Soul will be long forgotten as the Beatles continue on.

I wasn't around for the Beatles or the Monkees either ~ and I also love Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday. They didn't write their own songs either. From what I read about the Monkees ~ they sold more records in the old days than the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined.

They also have a new bunch of songs they put out too. :) I like this one ~

Is that why we are still talking about the Monkees a half~century after they came out? :confused: :rolleyes:

I like this song too and it has a Beatle in it but he was smart to let Rihanna and Kanye do the singing. Paul Maccartney was in the Beatles ~ wasn't he? :confused: And it's still a really nice song.

I didn't know that this was a song by the Beatles until recently and I remember how much I liked it when I first heard it. :) Some of their songs are good but it is not easy to tell unless someone better sings them.
