I think it's cooler (especially in this forum) to be a king's fan, but i can't help loving the Beatles too...
Am I the only one here ??

The Beatles are good but there's only one king...

Just finish watching "Pulp Fiction" or reading "Garage"? I was just thinking about how in Pulp Fiction they say everything you do in life can be boiled down to an approach that would be supported by Elvis Code or Beatle code. In Garage Magazine it says if you're reading this you're following Elvis code. Which is strange to me because I had already decided I live by Beatle code but enjoy the Kings music much more and think he was cooler. Torn but I'll go with Elvis.

Beatles all the way for the music, but I love the coolness of the king.

Whenever anyone beside Elvis does Jailhouse Rock it sounds like a bad copy, although I think Elvis is more successful in his slow ballads. He's more tiki anyway and with his fondness for bad taste it's no wonder. I can imagine his favorite peanut butter and banana sandwich on tiki restaurant menu as “Tropical Ono Legume Spread” Hee. You gotta love the guy.

The Beatles. Thee greatest most diverse collection of songs/music ever by the same four musicians is the White Album. If you can tell me what Revolution 9 means AND the song after it, then I know you've been there. Where? you ask? If you've been there, or if someone told you, you wouldn't have to ask.
John Lennon was a musical genius. The greatest musician/songwriter ever, hands down.

Loner that I am...I have always felt isolated and alone on the planet in my strong dislike of The Beatles (unpopular as my opinion might be). Although I'm thankful for their existence, they've influenced plenty of wonderful bands that I do like.
Viva ELVIS!

When I was younger, I had a cabinet company. My partner and I would buy over-runs from a huge company and sell them at swap-meets. Orange Coast College had a swap-meet every Sunday. Each week we were placed between a lady who sold T-shirts and an Elvis Impersonator. The T-shirt Lady would listen to the syndicated radio program "Breakfast with the Beatles" and the Elvis impersonator would Karioke Elvis tunes all day. Call it too much of a good thing, but, to this day I can't hear either without thinking of that damn swap-meet. If I have to choose, Elvis, hands down.
Mahalo,
Al

The Beatles never tried to have Elvis kicked out of the country by the CIA.

Oh, and the song for the first dance at my wedding was "Something."

Sounds like a night I had about 15 years ago. Me and 2 other friends with nothing better to do drinking a case of beer. One guys breaks out Fool on the Hill and keeps playing it over and over. Asking us if we know what it means. I'm not really sure he did either but he kept playing it over and over and over. Still don't know what he thought it meant.
I took a Beatles class in Community College a few years later and finally found out the songs true meaning along with the meaning of Nowegian Wood. It's really a song about....what's that noise. The Cicadas? It's getting closer..louder.......Oh my Goahhhhghhhhh...
