Me too Mark. Good post
I’d say The End is my favorite from Abbey Road. How can you beat those dueling guitar solos?? I’m in awe every time. And Ringo’s drumming!! Incredible.
His ahh-riffic handclaps should have earned him the primary writing credit
But seriously, though, what the **** are you on about? You're babbling non sequiturs and then acting defensive when people don't follow them. This is a trend with your posts, and don't think no one has noticed.
I just whipped up a personal ranking of George's 22 composed Beatle songs and "Here Comes The Sun" came at #10.
Honestly ,what on Earth are you talking about? What 'age card'? Ignore away, no great loss as you consistently show an inability to understand posts and threads and to follow lines of argument and are forever posting non-sequiturs and going off on irrelevant tangents that no-one can follow. I don't generally mind it, it's even funny on occasion, but you're the one who's determined to turn this into a thing, so you're getting it, both barrels.
So millennials are not only supposed to love the 50 year old music that you love, but they are also supposed to love it in exactly the same way that you do?
A song where the most common word in the lyric is ... "na".
I’m at the tail of Gen-X so whilst not a millennial I was obviously born post -Beatles.
And given the choice of never having to hear one of Hey Jude or Here Comes The Sun ever again, without hesitation I’d pick Hey Jude. Over lionised and too long. Can’t say I’m surprised with the choice of a sunny 3 minutes of near perfection over it.
I always enjoy posts like this because it takes ma a minute to realize that you are arguing with someone I "Ignored" long ago for the very reasons you mention, so I thankfully can only see your side of the argument.
Remember everyone the "Ignore" function is your friend!
Don't get me wrong, I generally like the guy, he's harmless, but when he starts picking fights over some imaginary thing in his head then it's Goodnight Vienna.
So now millennials are bad because we’re not listening to the right Beatles track? Seems out-of-touch and clickbait-y to me...
Great song. I see no problem with its popularity.
Been officially sick of HEY JUDE for 20 years now.. HCTS has lasting appeal.
I cringed at the nonsensical "terrible, terrible times" bit, but clearly a lot of millenials have been convinced of that, and it tracks.
Regardless, the other main reason is playlists - a short song about the sun rising fits a wide variety of playlists, and playlists are what drive song plays on Spotify.
We live in a world where most millennials can't afford their own homes, will more than likely work until they're 80 doing a job they hate whilst being crippled by student debt, taking anxiety medication, depression medication and living pay check to pay check.
In other words, I can see why Here Comes The Sun is so popular.
It is arguably (ARGUABLY) the best song on Abbey Road, and it's a good song by any standard.
Some Beatles song has to be most streamed. This one is as good as any, better than most.
But it proves nothing else. George's overall output with The Beatles (breadth and quality) still pales compared to the best of Paul/John.
I don't find this shocking or surprising, because it doesn't have any additional meaning: It's just a good song by The Beatles which happened to be written by George.
Also, growing up we heard this song a lot during commercials, advertisements, movies etc...
There is another explanation.
The listeners are mistaking Here Comes The Sun for Who Loves The Sun by The Velvet Underground – who we also know were so influential on the Fab Four's sound.
lay it on me!
It's always been one of my top ten Beatles songs. I was born when Revolver was the number one album. It's also probably both of my parents' favorite Beatles song, and they were both born during WWII.
It's a top-shelf song from one of the classic albums of all time. I'm not the least bit surprised that any demographic streams it the most.
22) You Like Me Too Much
21) Only a Northern Song
20) Within You, Without You
19) The Inner Light
17) Don't Bother Me
16) Love You To
15) It's All Too Much
14) For You Blue
13) I Need You
12) I Me Mine
11) I Want To Tell You
10) Here Comes The Sun
09) Blue Jay Way
08) If I Needed Someone
06) Think For Yourself
05) Old Brown Shoe
04) Long, Long, Long
02) While My Guitar Gently Weeps
01) Savoy Truffle
If "Not Guilty" had been released, "Here Comes The Sun" would end up wedged out of the top ten as "NG" made it to #3.
beaten out by Blue Jay Way! whoa! I like the top 4 though. I would put it 1) here come/something/long long/guitar/maybe savoy or taxman
Well it's my favourite Beatles song too,good choice millennials!
