This has been asked a hundred times but the answers have never been the exact same. Roger McGuinn and David Crosby had on several occasions spoke gushingly about the Beatles. However, many ordinary music aficionados only halfheartedly agree and give more weight to the Byrds though they became popular singing songs by other writers like Pete Segar and Bob Dylan. Musicwise, the guitar in the Byrds songs "speaks" more enhusiastically than in the Beatles' songs. NO, I am not proposing to blaspheme George Harrison or something. What do you think?
Most of your replies are coming from people my age and maybe a little younger. We were more concerned with the lyrics and the meaning than the melodic sound. We wanted good musicians, but the lyrics meant more to us. It was a different time back then when the lyrics told important stories.
The Beatles were great and did several meaningful songs, but they were aimed more at entertainment and less at the message.
