The Beatles were the best band ever, never to be passed. In sixty years you'll still hear Beatles songs but most of the "pop" bands of today will be long forgotten. You can say the same thing about the 1980's for example. Let's take "Wham," they were huge in the 80's and the Beatles were long broken up but who do you hear more of today? Do I need to answer that?

Mothers are singing "Golden Slumbers" to lull their babies to sleep to this day and radicals are still playing "Revolution." Every spring I hear "Here Comes the Sun" on various radio stations. What gets played at weddings and funerals? "In My LIfe," not to mention "Blackbird." In the tv show "Life Goes On," the cast sings the opening "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da." I could go on and on. Heck, they just made a movie featuring all Beatles songs, "Across The Universe." That was 30+ years after their break-up.

Name another "pop/rock" band that can make as many claims.

That's my opinion and I'm stickin' to it. ;-)

It must be noted, the Beatles aren't necessarily my favorite band of all time, but there is no denying their power, like 'em or not.

Love n Beatles...
