Are you an Elvis or Beatles person??

According to Mia Wallace, people fall into two categories, those who prefer Elvis, and those who prefer The Beatles. Which one are you??

Re: Are you an Elvis or Beatles person??

If I has to choose (and just have) then it's the Beatles...Elvis was sorely overrated imho.......*ducks for cover*

Re: Are you an Elvis or Beatles person??

Neither really.Elvis didn`t pen his own material,and apart from "Suspicious Minds",none of his songs do anything for me.Find the whole Elvis thing too kitsch.
And always preferred The Stones to The Beatles,cos to me they were cooler and were more rock`n roll.
Can`t stand Neil Diamond either.
My musical heroes were always ones who combined originality and musicality like Queen,Bowie and Pink Floyd.

Re: Are you an Elvis or Beatles person??

Not much support for Elvis so far.....wonder why

Neil Diamonds OK, my Bro used to have a Live Album of his, Gold I think. Was a frequent player for me in about....er 1977

Never got into the Stones much, but they were around in 77 Steve..

If I had to choose and I'm no great fan either...The Beatles because they were in at the begining for originality. Strawberry Fields, Elinor Rigby, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.... they were song writers that were breaking new ground. Without them I dont know that things would have developed so fast as they did. Other than that the Rolling Stones is probably the group I prefer today.

Re: Are you an Elvis or Beatles person??

It's a bit close to call really but I chose the Beatles because they were all rounders rather than just interpreters of other peoples work. My preference would be for Led Zep or Deep Purple OR anything Motown.

A choice between Elvis or the Beetles? Motown and Bowie for me.

(Am sure I shall regret agreeing with Gibbo on something at some point in the future)

More like Nirvana than Niel Diamond. Think Elvis and the Beatles are over-rated.

Should have added Bowie as a voting option Ant.......

If I really had to choose,I`d say Beatles,cos they were British,albeit Scousers........

IanM that line I quoted was from the Clash in 1977!

Re: Are you an Elvis or Beatles person??

Out of the options the Beatles, but from the era it has to be the Kinks, Small faces and The Who.
Elvis Was very overrated IMO, how it got away with it I will never know.. The same way as Neil Diamond I suppose.

Yeah my childhood was like that and I really hated him. But now when I hear him I do think his songs are really quite good.

Out of the two I'd go for the Beatrles. Neil Diamond has dome some good songs too though...especially the Jonathan Livingstone Seagull album

A vote for Elvis , I don't think he was overrated, just poorly managed.
