Thread Name: Incomplete Beatles songs
Subject: RE: Incomplete Beatles songs
I'm with McGrath at 2.37, I prefer a sparse lyric. Verbosity turns me off a song.
Having said that, many Beatles songs could use an extra verse, they are too good to finish so soon. 3 minute syndrome, I suppose.
At a festival, late one night, we worked our way through a lot of the Beatles songbook. Everyone knew the words. Magic.
