    Forty years and more later, some of their songs are still wonderful - "I'll Follow the Sun", "Things We Said Today", "Here Comes the Sun", "You're Gonna Lose that Girl", are among those that still make me smile, and I still remember every note. A few of their songs will still be standards in another forty years.

    Can Limp Bizkit say the same? :p
    You suspicion is incorrect. I'm of a generation that is supposed to like the Beatles. I don't. Novelty or not, if the Beatles get credit for their good songs, they get equal blame for the bad ones.

    Not all their music is bad, I just don't care for it. As for Limp Bizkit, who cares?

    Oh, I'm quite familiar with Harry Flashman; he's one of my role models in life. :D

    Who'll be my role-model
    Now that my role-model is
    Gone Gone
    He ducked back down the alley
    With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl
    All along along
    There were incidents and accidents
    There were hints and allegations

    Where is this law written? I'm not aware of any musician who is equally proud of everything they've done. Some would like to erase one, or more. I'm not a big Beatle fan either. But, they came out with music that was unique to anything at a point in time. They were hugely influential in changing pop music. This is undeniable. Listen to music 6 months prior and 6 months post to "I wanna hold your hand". They wholesale changed pop music. No, it's not a deep and meaningful song on any level. What is is, is totally new, with little to no recognizable influence (I.E. theft)of any prior music. How rare it such an event?
    The reality is, they single-handily shaped pop music. That puts them in a super-elite class of musicians. The 'stones, while refining and capitalizing on any given layer of the evolving musical styles, never originated these layers. The Beatles did. The Beatles secured an undeniable historical place in pop music evolution. Their music has, and will continue to survive. Everyone is free to like, or dislike any music out there. Thats how art works. But, there are some historical events in music that are undeniable. The Beatles are responsible for one of them. However, Herman's Hermits were not.
