The Present
« on: February 23, 2009, 10:35:06 PM »

I've been a Beatles fan for as long as I can remember. There is something about their music that is magical and puts it above and beyond all other music. I always knew they were very special.

I came across something a short while back that completely changed the way I listen to the Beatles' music. I'd like to show you a section from a book that I found which provides some interesting insight about The Beatles.

http://www.thetruthcontest.com
Click on "The Present"
Open the document in Word, and click "Read Only."
The section about The Beatles starts on page 206.

I'd really like to hear your opinions about this new interpretation of The Beatles music. I'm here to share with you as well as learn from you.

This section made me listen to The Beatles in a completely different way.

What do you think?

"And then while I'm away,
I'll write home every day,
And I'll send all my loving to you."

Oh no, not again. I hate interpretations, and these certainly. Why can't people just listen to the music and enjoy it, like it was meant to be?

Some people don't know how to get a life do they? Are you 'Carman' in disguise?

I normally hate interpretations too, especially when people try to sell them.  However, this one is free, and it completely changed the way I listen to their music, for the better.  You can listen and enjoy their music while reading this, that's what I did.  =)

No, but I have heard about that person.  Anyone who wants money for 'hidden messages' is clearly not a sensible person.  This is just something I have found that is free, and I want to share it with you.  I hope you like it!

Don't. I'm a stubborn a**hole and might reconsider my decision to let you in after all.

Understood, my friend.  Hopefully your decision to let me in after all will pay off for the other members of this forum.

I doubt it. Most of us are not particularly fans of stuff like this.

No, he's trying to say that the light hurt his eyes. He's the devil himself you know.

This is not a religious section.  It is just a new way to look at The Beatles and their music.  Many people realize that they were a very special group that changed the face of the planet, and this book tells you why.  It's not forceful, or religious, it's just something to get the gears turning in your head.  It made me enjoy The Beatles even more than before I read it.

Wrong observation, Bobber. His post itself is much more confrontational than his avatar, IMO. It's a personal insult to those who disagree with him. Is that appropriate on this forum?

You mean the Jehovah witness thing? In fact, he was asking a question. I don't see a personal insult in that. I've seen worse in the last few days.
