Rock Dad takes on the Beatles

I will be occasionally contributing music writings to antother blog: the Music section over at Consumer Help Web.  First up is my article about 13 crappy or at mediocre Beatles songs called You Can Polish An Apple but You Can’t Polish a Turd.

Here is an excerpt. You can read the rest over at Music Help Web.  They have some other cool stuff over there too.

And I Love Her (1964) – George Martin barely had to change the arrangement to record his cheesy instrumental version for the US . ‘Nuff said.

Dig A Pony (1969)– The riff is sluggish but not heavy, and syncopated but not funky. We get more half-assed Lennon-doing-Carroll lyrics with a mediocre lead vocal. Nice guitar solo, though.
