I can listen to the Beatles, but they just don't do it for me in the same way the Rolling Stones, The Jam, Oasis, and The Stone Roses do.

In terms of influence and contribution to music then they piss all over all of the above. However I'm not one to judge music by lyrics, structure, production, or anything like that. Either something clicks in my head and I enjoy it, or I don't. As I say, I do like the Beatles, but I enjoy the above more.

So I dunno. In my opinion they are overrated, but thats based on my own personal preference. In terms of contribution and importance then they aren't. But you very rarely find anyone who loves both the Beatles and the Stones, and I'm more of a Stones man anyway.

Quote:
A new documentary featuring never-heard-before fragments of conversation, along with interviews and rare footage of The Beatles in the studio, will form the centrepiece of a season of programming as BBC Two and BBC Four join forces for Beatles Week.

The joint season, celebrating the Fab Four's enduring legacy and continuing influence, begins on BBC Two on Saturday 5 September 2009.

Kicking off an evening of programming on BBC Two on 5 September, The Beatles On Record offers a concise history of The Beatles in the studio and sits alongside other highlights including the first TV showing of The Beatles: The First U.S. Visit, the Maysles brothers' film charting the Fab Four's arrival in America in 1964.

BBC Four's programming includes Storyville's extraordinary story of how The Beatles' music may have contributed towards the collapse of the USSR; a documentary on the making of The Beatles' First U.S. Visit; and a new compilation of archive footage featuring an eclectic range of artists who have covered Beatles songs over the decades.

In 1962 an unknown group from Liverpool entered Abbey Road Studios to record their debut single. During the next eight years they created what is arguably regarded as the greatest collection of studio recordings of the 20th century.

The Beatles On Record, directed by Bob Smeaton, charts The Beatles' extraordinary journey from Please Please Me to Abbey Road and reflects on how they developed as musicians, matured as songwriters and created a body of work that sounds as fresh in 2009 as the time it was recorded.

Narrated entirely by John, Paul, George, Ringo and their producer Sir George Martin, the documentary features more than 60 classic songs, rare footage and photos from The Beatles' archives and never-heard-before out-takes of studio chat from the Abbey Road recording sessions.

This is followed on the same evening on BBC Two by The Beatles: The First U.S. Visit.

It is 1964, Beatlemania is beginning in America and from airport to hotel to TV studio, the pioneering Maysles brothers are at The Beatles' shoulders on their first US visit. This is the inside story of the two remarkable weeks when Beatlemania first ignited in America.

BBC Two will also be reshowing Timewatch: Beatlemania, the inside story of the rise and fall of Beatlemania. By 1966 the Beatles had played more than 1,400 gigs, toured the world four times and sold the equivalent of 200 million records. At the height of their popularity, and without warning, they pulled the plug and never toured again.

There's also another chance to see the action adventure spoof Help!, directed by Richard Lester.

The season continues with a week of programming on BBC Four from Sunday 6 September.

Storyville: How The Beatles Rocked The Kremlin tells the extraordinary unknown story of how The Beatles' music may have contributed to the collapse of the USSR.

In August 1962 director Leslie Woodhead made a two-minute film in Liverpool's Cavern Club with a raw and unrecorded group of rockers – The Beatles. He arranged their first live TV appearances on a local show in Manchester and then watched as the Fab Four phenomenon swept the world.

Twenty five years later, while making films in Russia, Woodhead became aware of how – even though they were never able to play in the Soviet Union – The Beatles legend had soaked into the lives of a generation of youngsters.

This film meets the Soviet Beatles generation and hears stories about how the Fab Four changed their lives.

Other programming throughout the week on BBC Four includes Sings Beatles, a new compilation of archive footage featuring a diverse range of artists – from Sandie Shaw to Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Carpenters to Candy Flip – who have covered Beatles songs over the years.

Plus there's an opportunity to see Filming The Beatles' First U.S. Visit: Albert Maysles, which takes viewers behind the scenes with the legendary documentary director of The Beatles: The First U.S. Visit that screens on BBC Two on 5 September.

George Entwistle, Controller, Knowledge Commissioning, says: "This is a chance for viewers to enjoy some rare footage and fascinating insights into the career of the greatest pop group of all time.

"Through BBC Two and BBC Four's close working relationship we will be inviting our audience to join us on a rich and colourful journey across two TV channels, through new and archive content, shown in just one week in September."

I wish I had a spare £200 for this


EDIT - I'm not sure if I'd consider the Beatles over or underrated tbh. On one hand you've got the die hard Beatles fans who will argue with you for hours about how they're the best band ever, then you've got those who think it's "cool" to dislike them and not even acknowledge what they did for music. I personally love them, but the hardcore fans can grate a tad.

Not as bad as Dylan fans though, who I also enjoy, but Christ..

I think I saw it for £150 on Amazon or Play.

Anyway, I'll be watching the Beatles documentary. I'm also planning on buying the Anthology box set. I'm a fan, but I don't think they're the best of all time.

EDIT: Actually, £169.98.

I was thinking that. Though I'm not sure how limited it'll be, so maybe not that much.

It is part of the reason I'm going to try my hardest not to buy it though, because I'd probably not open it and store it away, like a nonce.

Actually going back and reading the bitterness in the original article. Especially about Hendrix exploding onto the scene. On I Feel Fine The Beatles I think were the first band to use "feedback" and put it onto a record. Something of which Hendrix was known for, but what he first picked up from The Beatles.

That post was just to grate on Dan btw.

I not a huge fan of the Beatles, some of their songs are catchy, but not overly my cup of tea. I'm much more a fan of The Who and the Stones who have had certainly had as much success and credit probs The Who more than the Rolling Stones even though the Stones deserve much more credit than they get.
