On Lennon v. McCartney

Disclaimer: This blog is meant to be humorous. Nothing I say here is to be taken too seriously, except the fact that I really am NOT a Beatles fan. I just don't get the hype. Please don't send me "You are horrible for hating the Beatles and John Lennon" hate mail!

I've been thinking about really stupid things lately as it pertains to Bean and myself and the new dynamic that will soon descend upon our house. One of my major worries is what kind of musical taste Bean will have. My goodness what if Bean loves Gwen Stefani or Fergie. I don't think I could stand it. But the most important musical debate that will surely take place in this house is that of John Lennon vs. Paul McCartney.

Please don't think that I'm a Beatles freak. Actually, I'm pretty much an anti-fan. I think The Beatles are highly overrated. Actually, I like their songs, I just prefer when someone else sings them.

The debate I generally end up in with The Beatles fans I know is Lennon or McCartney. 99.9% of people will take Lennon, in my personal experience. But not me. I'm McCartney all the way. Maybe I just have a thing for bass players? Personally, I credit my love for Paul to Wings. Have you ever heard Wings? Freaking awesome! Maybe I'm Amazed is one of the best songs ever.

Sorry, I've gotten off topic here. What am I going to do if Bean loves The Beatles or Mr. John Lennon?? What am I going to do? How do I explain the incredibleness of Mr. Paul McCartney without exposing the child to at least some Beatles songs? Goodness, this is overwhelming.

I suppose I'll just hope against hope that Bean loves bass players as much as mommy. And maybe he or she will inherit my strange fascination with Sebastian Bach, as well.


  1. Jon and I were just talking about the Elvis vs, Beatles theory- either you like one or the other. Weird!

  2. Micah always tells me it's Beatles or The Who. And I am a Who girl, all the way. If the Beatles had John Entwistle or Keith Moon, I may have grown to love them, instead.
