Elvis or The Beatles?
Legend tells you that you can tell a lot about a person by asking them this simple question. Are you an Elvis person or a Beatles person?
I never really cared much for Elvis. I liked his music but thought he was kind of creepy. I love the Beatles. When they came on the scene, I was a young teen and thought they were cool.
For me it's the Beatles, but I really think it's more of a generational thing. Elvis was more for my mom's generation. In my teen years I knew Elvis more for his cheezy movies than his music.
I love the Beatles. Though I think Elvis is cool, I was introduced to the Beatles by an older brother and have collected all their work. I think I have two Elvis CD's.
I enjoyed the Beatles much better because they put a lot of thought in their lyrics. Elvis was just fun, bold and with an unique dance style. He was like a sex symbol with no real meaning in his lyrics.
I appreciate Elvis and enjoy much of his music. Although I enjoy, my favorite between the two remains the Fab Four from Liverpool. Having grown up in the South, where Elvis is revered, his music is often a bridge between generations. I remember my grandmother having an album of his hymns which added to his wide appeal.
For my own listening pleasure, there is still nothing like the Beatles. Although my favorite album of theirs is often changing, they are still my preference.

If there was no Elvis, or Jerry Lee Lewis, would there ever been the Beatles?Just a fun question that I thought of tonight as I watched my children playing Beatles Rock Band.

As a musician and music lover, I have grappled with an answer to this question since MJ's sad passing, if there ever will be one.To me, good music entertains us. But great music must inspire and fuel passion within us....
