eeh thanks for posting this, definately downloading the ones i don't have :)

this is a disgrace to everything the beatles stood for.
if i could spit online, iwould.
...making music?
mixing it with gangsta rap.
I wasn't aware gangsta rap was around for them to be vehemently against.. though I suppose they were highly highly opposed to the soul and r&b of the time like uh Chuck Berry right?
ever heard of postmodernism?
haha, this album is interesting, thanks!
I love this. My favorite would have to be "What More Can I Say". THANKS!
Did you watch the video for "Encore" yet?
hhmmmm..... I don't want to sound stupid or uncool or any of those such things...but there is definently no love lost between rap music and myself. I like having this so I can say I've heard it, but my heart hurts when I hear my favorite songs being mixed with stuff I can barely call music.

But thats just my opinion, and I'm not trying to start any fights at all, period. That would be entirely against my hippie-disposition :)
I agree with you completely. I have always been interested in hearing this, but after doing so it's just not something I would listen to again. It's not my cup of tea, but it doesn't bother me that other people like it. :]
Did you here Paul and Lulu remix called "Inside out", it's Let Em In and she raps over it and sings and then paul sings a sassier version of "let em in" like in the video in wingspan. It's kinda horrible. I thought it was a song he was doing with Lulu from the 60s so I was suprised by it when I heard rapping.

Not meaning to be argumentative here...

It's a shame though for you to pretty much write off an entire genre of music. I use to be really against country, but once I made an effort to really understand where the music came from (plus listening to awesome peeps like Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons) I was able to appreciate it. I don't know how old are you, or where you come from, or what other bands you listen to (besides the Beatles), but I hope that one day you'll take the time to understand rap (or perhaps, some aspects of it) and discover some really great MC's.

Re: Not meaning to be argumentative here...

I'm sorry, but hearing stuff by "Fiddy Cent" and Ludacris and the like, as it was practically crammed down my throat everyday in public high school (I'm now homeschooled) has ruined it for me. I couldn't find anything worthwhile in songs with titles like "Drop it like it's hot"- so I have to fully accept being "uncool" because I don't listen to this stuff, and have no desire to because I can barely understand the words, let alone find meaning in them.

I'm 17, and I listen to Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Tom Petty, The Doors, James Taylor, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, India Arie, Arlo Guthrie- stuff like that, and I find that I really enjoy the depth and beauty (both musically and lyrically) I find in it. I can't say the same for music containing the lyrics "F&*% you you Bitch, I don't want you back"

But to each his own. I don't mind other people listening to it, it's just a matter of what you dig, and I like my music to be a real trip. Thought provoking and powerful.

I understand that Rap music is born as a result of a rough life on the streets, but tough gang kids who grow into Rappers will only influence kids in similar begingings to become tough Gangstas, so they can write more rap music to influence more people to....well, you get the idea. It's counter- productive and I honestly can't see a point to it.

But this is just my opinion, not meant to offend or provoke anyone.
i really hate to get in the middle of this, but what is all the fighting for? we are in a BEATLES community. do you really think that the beatles would want us to be fighting like this?

everyone likes different types of music. i get crap everyday because i listen to the beatles, the who, the rolling stones, ect. we've all been through a time when people told us how stupid the music we listened to is, so do we really want to accuse other people of listening to "stupid music". Music is music. it doesn't matter who sings it or how its sung. so can't we all just "give peace a chance" over this?

i myself even gave this album a try. and im not going to lie. it kinda hurt to hear the music i cherish and love made in to that. i'm not saying it's bad, but its just not something that i would listen too. but i'm glad i can say i have now.
