Is that like when you realize that the "plain" sister is actually more beautiful than the "hot" sister?

Any who, I'm looking forward to seeing this movie too.
I saw the trailer last night and its an interesting concept, since despite the fame from "writing new awesome music", he knows he is a fraud.

I'd be willing to spring for a beer or two to hear that story. Or is it "those stories"? banghead

Oooo. I wonder if Jussie Smollett was up for the part? smile
That aside, I'm totally hooked, too. Plus the guy is really good. Just hearing him do Beatles songs the way they were written, and not "reimagined", should be worth the price of a ticket.

Not sure that would be the case since Nancy is, IMHO, the hot sister. Ann, was, unfortunately, the fat sister.

That is a cool concept. But I feel it is fatally flawed though.

There's no way 1960's Beatles music would become the greatest thing ever if the music was introduced in 2019.

The guy would be a novelty, playing gigs for pocket change in coffee houses. He'd be lucky to make a few hundred dollars a year selling tracks online. No one in the music business would pay any attention. The music is too dated, not suitable for mass mainstream commercial distribution, and let's be honest in today's age, too "white". (even country music today has gone pretty hard into R&B/hip-hop styles)

Maybe if the movie took place between 1960 and 1965, he might have been a successful solo artist if he connected with the right people. But still nothing like the managed success of the Beatles.


I refuse to buy a flight sim that I have no interest in playing, on the off chance that MAYBE someday they'll make the one I really want to play.

Great post. All you have to do is look at the current Billboard Top 40 and you won't find ANYTHING that resembles either the early Beatlemania stuff or their later psychedelic stuff.

Point taken.
RnB/Hip hop today has little to no connection with the RnB/soul pop music of the mid to late 1960s either. And to the extent pop music today is electronic based, it is seriously devolved from the ambitious efforts made in the late 60s and 1970s to the 80s, when artists were honestly trying the limits of what synthesizers and sequencers were capable of.

When I listen to pop music from the mid 1950s to the mid 1970s the range, ambition and growth is breathtaking. Pop music from the 2000s to the 2018/9s sounds pretty unambitious and kinda stagnant.

The Beatles development over not really too many albums at all is shocking by today's standards. I am surprised they got that much latitude even then.

ORRRRR....

Since no one's ever heard of The Beatles, or their music, it's considered as fresh and original as it was in the 1960's. AND the guy is hailed as a genius for the way he "writes" all this music that is derivative of absolutely nothing in recorded, or recording, history so effortlessly. For example, in one segment of the trailer he's on a talk show and the host asks him to write something right there on stage. So he picks up his guitar and starts singing, "Something...in the way you smile............". I think someone who could do that would become a sensation, don't you?

Good point. Any opera singer could blow away a rock artist vocally, but it would sound to me like a vocalist doing a technically accurate reading of music without the rawness and sincerity that good popular music has. I used to laugh at Neil Young as having one of the worst voices in popular music, but now I love his songs and the believability he confers whenever he sings them. Andrea Boccelli could do a better rendition but I'm likely to not find it as affecting.

Since this conversation has evolved into the discussion of different takes on the same music, I thought I would post this amazing combination of artists.
