Sorry if I'm being nitpicky, but is mentioning that the musicologist is black really necessary? Just not sure why it would be relevant, is all. Blitz (Complaints Box) 15:43, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

You're not being nitpicky - well, I suppose it could be said that the Beatles were ripping off African American music without crediting the originals. But the whole section needs to go. It's hideous and, OK, maybe I'm biased, but a section that is nothing but put downs of one of the greatest song writing teams of the 20th century is a little beneath us.

I wondered if that was the inference the article was trying to make; that a black musicologist thinks the Beatles were ripping off black music (which is par for the course in rock'n'roll history). The article didn't explicitly say that, though, so bringing the guy's race into it was out of the blue to me. Blitz (Complaints Box) 09:33, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
Everyone copies from everyone, that's how great songs are written.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 17:15, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
What is more, as someone who actually remembers She Loves You coming out - OK, I know it's not the first but it was the song that changed popular music - we had never heard anything like that before. It was truly mind blowing. I guess Jailhouse Rock must have had the same impact but I'm not that old. Doxys Midnight Runner (talk) 17:24, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Why was this edit reverted? This is common knowledge and time and time again this site continues to fail me. Even for your "skeptical" minds that info needs to be a tiny bit palatable? I feel fighting any point you people disagree with with facts is completely useless.--ReptoidKiller (talk) 11:38, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Your photo from earlier was just an (admittedly shoddy and deceitful) photoshop of a popular Yellow Submarine promotional. Any Beatles Fan like me would have immediately known that. That alone is enough for me to doubt anything further you have to say.
When you provide a name and book title I can't even find on Wikipedia, I feel it's up to you to provide us a source. You could have easily pulled that from another conspiracy theorist who himself pulled it out of his ass for all we know. Do that, and we might take you mildly more seriously.--Spoony (talk) 11:46, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Wow, really?[edit]

I have posted clear proof of the Beatles being satanic. Photographic evidence. And Wikimedia commons deleted it to censor me.
