Really? I mean, I know that die-hard Beatles fans would have a more open-mind to Beatles songs than the "casual" fan. But I am VERY hard-pressed to think of many BAD songs on the White Album. And definitely not HALF.

HAHA. That's funny because it reminds me of my brother. We used to live by the water, and we'd go fishing all the time. The times he'd go alone, he'd come back and tell us about the great fish he "threw back in the water." At the beginning of the story, his hands would be about shoulder-width apart, describing the length of the fish. During the telling of the story, his arms would gradually stretch. By the END of the story, his arms were out so wide, you could fit a yard stick in there. LOL

Good story, man. My DAD and uncles were the same way. Good memories.

I'm enjoying SAVOY TRUFFLE and CRY BABY CRY at the moment. The album is really a complete contrast to Sgt. Peppers.

I don't think you'll fond anyone who likes rev. no. 9. With the exception of the song just mentioned, I like the entire album.

I like most songs on it, but there's about four or five that I don't. R9 is among them [8D]

The White Album is one of my favorites, Beatles or otherwise. I like Piggys because of what its about. And Blackbird is unforgettable.
The most unusual song on the disc is Rocky Raccoon, only the Beatles would have dared cut a song like that at the time, thats why their so good.
