#384: A Hard Day's Night by The Beatles

5.24.2011


A Hard Day's Night by The Beatles (1964)

Favorite Track(s): "A Hard Day's Night" and "I Should Have Known Better" and "If I Fell" and "I'm Happy Just to Dance With You" and "Tell Me Why" and "Can't Buy Me Love" and "Any Time At All" and "I'll Cry Instead" and "Things We Said Today" and "When I Get Home" and "You Can't Do That" and "I'll Be Back"

Thoughts: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Silly Rolling Stone! I DON'T THINK YOU REALIZE: THIS IS A BEATLES ALBUM. BEATLES ALBUMS DO NOT BELONG OUTSIDE THE TOP 100. This is unacceptable! I don't think you've realized what this means. This means that albums #383 to #1 (which is a BEATLES ALBUM. There are 3 Beatles albums in the top 5.) are supposedly going to be better than this one. Better than "Can't Buy Me Love." Better than "If I Fell" and "I Should Have Known Better" and "A Hard Day's Night." I know what you might be thinking: 'Maryann, we've still got Joni and CSNY and Marvin Gaye and Simon & Garfunkel and Michael Jackson and Fleetwood Mac yet to come! It's going to be OK, we'll be fine!' And you're half right, internet-person. Those bands are still to come. But guess who is also still to come on this list? Rage Against the Machine. Eminem. Jane's Addiction. Pearl Jam. *sobs* NINE INCH F***ING NAILS. Sure there are people who are into that music, fine--but better than A Hard Day's Night? Better than The Beatles? I weep for the humanity who voted to make this list. I WEEP. You might think I'm overreacting. Wrong. You're under-reacting.

This is one of the first albums I ever owned. I think it was a combo bithday gift with a VHS copy of the movie. Probably the first movie I was ever given (and therefore my own, vs. the whole family's).
