“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
I suppose you think I deserve that, FJ, since I routinely insult the musical taste you exhibit here with despressing frequency, but I thought you understood the vast difference between the passing fancies of popular taste, and substantial works of art that have withstood the test of time.If you don't undersand that difference, there's no point in my going into a long –– or even a short –– dissertation on the difference between FADS and ETERNAL VERITIES.I guess it would be better for our relationship if I simply refrained from commenting on things I, personally, find ugly, irksome, worthless, destructive of aesthetic ideals, and frankly a deeply offensive waste of precious time.The callow but-highly-opinionated young man in the video hasn't the faintest CLUE as to what a person with my particular tastes and education is all about. I've spend the major portion of my entire life studying, performing, analyzing, and doing my best to master the principles of Keyboard tecnique, Harmony, Counterpoint, Form and Analysis, and Evolution of Style in Musical Composition over an 800-1200-year period. Having spent decades trying to probe the depths, unlcok the mysteries, and undersand the implications of great, highly-complex, sometimes abstruse musical scores my fascination with works I've known and played for decades only grows more passionate and intense with the passage of time. So does my curiosity and eagerness to learn the many masterworks I have NOT yet learned. I only wish I had at least a thousand years to pursue this quest. Even ten lifetimes could never be enough. It's THAT absorbing.I have gotten a tremendous amount of JOY out of my studies, and only wish others were able to derive the plesure and satisfaction I've enjoyed since I first became aware of the power and enduring fascinating of what is wrongly called "classical music."If I have offended you, however, I honestly do apologize. Y8nand I see eye to eye on MUCH, but no two people EVER see eye to eye on EVERYTHING. In future I promise to ignore the things that rub me the wrong way, and try to emulate Our Lord and Savior who said in the midst of His Agony on the Cross, "Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do."With that in mind I hope for a return to more amicable relations in the vey near future.
I get it, fRanco, I really do. But I'm still 12 at heart. ;)
'Twas the night before voting,And all thru' the town,Tempers were flaringFeelings up and then down.I, in my bathrobeWith a cat in my lap,Had left the TV'sPolitical crap.When all of a sudden,There arose such a noise I peered through my window, Schumer's bad boys.They had come for my wallet,They wanted my pay To hand out to others Who'd not worked a day.They snatched up my money, And quick as a wink, Jumped on their bandwagon As I gagged from the stink.She rallied her henchmen Pulling her cart. I could tell they were out To tear the U.S. apart.On Ducky, on NursieOn Dervish and Ayers On Lizzie on Waters He screamed at the pairs.They arose for his cause;As they flew out of sight, I heard himdsneer at a nation Grown too weak to fight. So I leave you to thinkOn this one final note:IF YOU DON'T LIKE the COMMIES,GET OUT and VOTE! ~ VItriola Netwitzki
By the way if you are still twelve at heart, I'll have you know I was ate before I was seven.];^}>

I've always described the Beatles as 4 extremely talented solo musicians and writers who sounded like absolutely shit when they collaborated.
that boy needs therapy
RU sure you don't just mean John and Yoko?
Overall I like everything the members of the Beatles did on their own more that any Beatles song.Even Ringo Starr's acting in low budget movies is better than ANY Beatles song.
