#6 parcicle – How do you listen to an amazing band like The Beatles, then turn around and listen to Top 40 regurgitated, bullshit “music” like Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake? Please, never reproduce. Ever.
OMG Megan, you are so right. People should only listen to one type of music – the “correct” kind in your eyes. You are so hip and intellectual, and this totally qualifies you to decide who should breed and who shouldn’t. Please reproduce – the world needs endless hipstery clones of yourself.
Wait – this is supposed to be making fun of Asian people who can’t tell white people apart! Or people with no understanding of popular music who can’t tell the Bee Gees and The Beatles apart! Or people who intentionally mis-titled a photo on Facebook for comic effect only to discover someone took them seriously!
Now we’re making fun of hipsters? What happened to us! Christ. Next we’ll be making fun of emos. Isn’t that old news yet?
Megan, you do realize that the Beatles were also once considered Top 40 “bullshit music” as well, right? They are the epitome of pop. Just because they are pop icons from a few generations ago doesn’t mean they are exempt from the genre. I get your point, and I agree, but I think better comparisons could have been made.
I love when people immortalize the past. Nostalgia, you glorious beast!
I doubt this was done on purpose. Seriously, how obscure of a reference is that…. one tree hill? Does anyone watch that? She probably would have added a “loL!! ” at the end, anyway.
Talk to more people who didn’t grow up in america or an english-speaking culture and you’ll see it’s pretty easy for them to make mix-ups like that.
1) The Beatles were revolutionary, yes, but their lyrics were honestly second-place-in-a-fourth-grade-poetry-contest kind of basic. Even when they got into their “experimental” phase their “trips” to the other side were shallow and juvenile. Pink Floyd is trippy and deep – the Beatles are not.
2) I don’t think this is fake or a joke or anything. Something about this reminds me or this weird on-the-fly interview with this teenaged Asian female pop duo in which the interviewer whipped out a picture of the Fonz and says, “Do you know who this is?” and they started singing in very broken, phoentic words, “SUNDAY, MONDAY, HAPPY DAY!” In short, language barriers are funny.
3) All white people DO look the same. YOU try telling Jeffree Star and Helen Mirren apart.
Well, in his defense the Bee Gees DID at one time sound a lot like The Beatles — “I Started a Joke” is the best Beatles song not actually written or recorded by The Beatles. And oh yeah, unlike Timberfake or the Gagadroid, at least The Beatles formed organically and crafted their OWN sound. Back when teenagers had better taste in music and the Top 40 was populated with more talented acts.
this is not a one tree hill reference i watch the show religiously and i cant even recall the random instance in which brooke referred to the beatles this way, not saying it didnt happen just saying way to obscure, this person is just clueless
