|Top 10 Beatles Song From A Metalhead's Perspective |
3 years ago, i thought the Beatles we're the best thing in rrrmusic. Now, after 3 years of rgoing through Gansta Rap to rrrProgressive Rock to Avant-Gard rJazz to Death Metal, i find rrrrrsitting through only 1 Beatles' song a drag.
Happiness Is A Warm Gun
With it's old school blues influence and Hard Rock delivery, it's definitely the Beatles most edgy
song (though that's not saying much).
George Harrison wasn't really the hit maker of the group. Most of the songs he had written were
simply fillers (Ahem, Blue Jay Way). But during the recording of Abbey Roads, he had some
breakthroughs. Something, not being the only one, was the best of those breakthroughs.
|3||While My Guitar Gently Weeps|
If you ever played guitar, you probably know how to play this song. It really isn't too complicated
(as it is to be expected from a Beatles song), but it does pack an incredible amount of emotion.
|4||A Day In the Life|
Few Beatles song can actually be considered progressive. This is one of those few. Pushing even
lyrical boundaries with Lennon's almost whispered "i love to turn you on".
If you thought that the most covered song in history wouldn't be in the list, you have another thing
coming. I don't find this song as enticing as the millions of people that herald it as the pinnacle of
acoustic songs. It's poppy and enjoyable, but that's really all it has going for it.
|6||Strawberry Fields Forever|
Out of all of the Beatles attempts at Psychedelia, this is the only one that wasn't a hit and miss.
Songs like "Lucy in The Sky With Diamonds" were just sad attempts at psychedelic. Lennon's part
really work, but then comes McCartney's attention needing personality again and that annoying
chorus line. Unlike "Lucy", Lennon's allowed to do this song all by himself and his soothing voice
triggers the psychedelic effect perfectly.
Eleanor Rigby is the only McCartney composition that i find any good. During his time in the band he
was perfecting his Pop style so he could start his solo career. Never did you actually see Paul divert
from plain pop. While Lennon and Harrison actually poured out all of their creatity to their work
and Ringo was out being Ringo, Paul just sat down for ten minutes or so and wrote down the words
"hello" and "goodbye" a thousand times in paper. Eleanor Rigby shows that Paul, if he even tried,
could make a good pop song (too sad moments like this are rare).
This is one of those songs that was actually ahead of it's time. The style created by this song would
be the style that the 70's would follow. It's Pink Floyd's Money, before Pink Floyd's Money (And yes,
i'm willing to make that comparison).
Why? Just 'Cause
|10||Across The Universe|
This was Lennon's last great gift as a Beatle. A song that can be immersive and groovy. The song
stetted the 60's and rose the sun in 70's. One of the Beatles' most beautiful songs (if not? It's the
|no way man|
|Good choices. I definitely think Come Together is one of the most overrated songs from the group, but it's hard to go wrong when choosing amazing Beatles songs.|
The only way you could mess up is choose some of the dumber Harrison ones like Blue Jay Way and Within You Without You.
|where's Helter Skelter then|

|you don't know my life|
|I'm surprised "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" isnt here, that's one of their heaviest. But good list, man.|
|I really dislike "i Want You" and yeah i guess i overlooked "Helter Skelter" but even so i wouldn't have put it on my list.|

|Your view on McCartney is totally backwards and uninformed.|
