This rounds thinker?
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Beatles.
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

Beatles

I don't know how one could vote any other way.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

most?

I like  - no love - all of their stuff, but can understand issues with the 1st few albums.
things were clearly changing by Beatles for Sale and Help (late 64, early 65), and they totally left pop by Rubber Soul.

not sure what you mean by most

The Beatles.  I really dig Pink Floyd but their early Syd stuff was weak sauce in that they sound like a punk band, loud and obnoxious before they evolved into their more cerebral approach and styles of music/expression.  The Beatles were an orbital or two above(or below depending on your atomic perspective) the Floyd.  Its like comparing minor league vs. major league, the best analogy.

well, songs like taxman and drive my car speak differently.
they spent as much time in the pop realm as they did pushing the boundaries.

like i said, i dig em, a lot, but....
