It's funny how most music today is about how much the guy wants to hook up with you, when all the Beatles wanted to do was hold your hand, amirite?

Common misconception, and the only one that's really debatable. John says it was written about a picture his son drew of a girl he liked, named Lucy. He brought home a picture, and said it was Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Lucy and Julian (his son) have confirmed this. Paul, who had nothing to do with writing it, later said it was about LSD. I, personally, believe John.

What is wrong with people? "Please, Please Me" is not about oral **. It was about relationships, and a response to songs about **. Since those were the norm in rock and roll then, they wanted to prove it can be different and still popular, only the only expected popularity in England.

If you think that you can convince me that you know more than I do, be my guest; I honestly do not care. I offered a solution to our problem. Like most songs, Please Please Me is open to many different interpretations. If you can't civilly take my solution, then I am truly sorry at the state of the human condition nowadays.

Dont try this "be the bigger man" crap on me. The beauty of their music stems from the countless interpretations. I'm always having friendly talks with strangers and friends alike about what a song could mean. My problem with you comes from two places. The first being your awful thoughts about what is really a pure song. As I said, their music could mean anything, so this wouldn't bother me if you didn't think that was the intention. Agreeing to disagree only works when one side isn't entirely disgusting and wrong. As for your personal attacks, I'm actually a very kind and loving man, even to the point of greatly disadvantaging myself.I live by a very strong moral code, and it is such that mkes you, some random person on the internet, worth writing these lengthy replies to.

What they wouldn't want is one of their only purely innocent songs to be slandered. there has only been one song John has EVER written without an iron clad meaning, but he often keeps the true meanings of his music quiet, to allow his fans to find their own artistic visions, not this filth.

They just were, it's well known that they slept around, especially John. In fact it was a large part of why George's first marriage broke up. I may have been exaggerating by using the word "manwhores", but to be honest I was trying to have a bit of a laugh about it. It's not exactly the most important thing in the world to be debating is it?

Also, I never actually mentioned the drugs and have no problem with any of the stuff they did in that sense

Anyone who has even attempted to listen to the Beatles knows for a fact that some of their most popular songs were no where close to their best. Honestly, just listen to a couple different albums (they're more diverse post '66 it seems) and you'll realize it. And if you ever watch interviews or live concerts of them you'll see how their personalities make them cool.

Obscene songs are nothing new, it's just that only recently have obscenity been recorded and released commercially. Here are a few lines of a song Jelly Roll Morton recorded for the Library of Congress in 1938, in the same style that had been performed for decades:

"Come here you sweet **, let me get in your drawers. I'm gonna make you think you're ** with Santa Claus"

"Tell me baby don't you like the way I grind, If you do let me get a little from behind."
