I gotta say Bob is up there in the scheme of music. His lyrics are often at biblical proportions, with great humankind sentiments. His use of Rhodes, hammond and the reggae thing has made him a very influential artist all around the world. He is almost as popular an icon as Lennon in terms of 'posters on the wall' and 'political message' in the UK and possibly Europe.

Dude, Marley reaches people on different levels. You don't have to be stoned to dig his music. The whole Jamaican ganga thing is a stereotype. But yeah, you can lite up and enjoy his music. Just like you can with any other bands of that era. BTW, what time is it there??? I'm trying to figure out if it's a 7 hour or 8 hour difference.

Thanks. 7 hours then. Yeah, everyone's got their opinions. I think it's cool to debate, but not argue. I see what you mean about Marley's music. It sort of gives out that vibe. (kinda like Floyd) I don't mean to contradict you or anything. Just saying what I think. I listen to Marley all the time when I'm straight that's all.

To say you have to be stoned to listen to Marley is rubbish.
It works just as good on pills :)

I don't smoke pot anymore, but I used to smoke for many many years. Didn't need reggae to enjoy my buzz. You don't need to be high to listen to Bob Marley, that's just your pinheadedness. What I said isn't ludicrous, maybe to a an idiot like you. Do you have to drink Jack Daniels to listen to Sinatra? No. Or rum to listen to Jimmy Buffet? No. You are a sheep.

Sorry, but can't some of you guys disagree without turning nasty. I don't want to be on a site where all we say is how nice The Beatles are.
But we needs some Rules of Engagement. I like a good discussion, but not if they turn out like this.

"In my Life" isn't even the best song John Lennon wrote--I don't know why it won that stupid poll.  "No Woman No Cry" is a superior song because it's more resonant--more particular images (black wood burning through the night, govt yard at Trenchtown, etc.).  "In my life" is frustratingly general (places I remember, etc.).  Why not just name them?  For what it's worth, I think Van Morrison's whole album "Astral Weeks" does this better than "In my life" or "No woman no cry".

You can still love and admire the Beatles without thinking that every song of theirs is better than everyone else's.  

Because there's no competition, really.  That's one thing that intrigues me about these boards and the beatle-fans.  How exclusive and protective and fanatic the posters can be.  Why do the Beatles elicit this kind of idolatry?

Good point, Junior.  I guess my real beef is with that poll not with any of the songs.  I prefer "Penny Lane" "Strawberry Fields" as songs to "In My Life" which has a beautiful melody and a great vocals but less evocative lyrics.  I like your comparison of color to b-w, maybe that's the best way to think of the difference.  

I think people see "In My Life" as the pinnacle of the Beatles youth and initial artistic growth or something.  I just can't figure out why it won that poll (was it Q or Mojo or Rolling Stone?)

I don't think Beatles fans are sheep--not the ones of this site anyway.  More like sheepdogs.

That's the problem with the polls people post, there's only a handful of songs or albums or whatever, and like you, they usually don't include the one that I would have chosen, they're pretty limited.
