And none of those beats were more impressive or complex than

or this

The amount of instruments is substantial in both. Anybody with a musical ear should be able to pick them up
Good songs, not very complex. The first one is a good studio drummer, very basic but good dance funky beat, very easy.

Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' is a drum machine, I hate drum machines.

The third is another good John Robinson beat. A simple bassbass bass snare repeated over and over, no real fills or complex time signatures. Same with the bass guitar, great grove, real simple.

Some good overlapping repetitious instruments. I can focus on every instrument, each one is a good possibly sampled repetitious sound. All in all very good formulaic songs that appeal to the masses who don’t have well developed musical ears.

another aspect of the mj deal is the mj motive. he was writing to stimulate dance. that was the popular deal in those days...so he produced ...get up and move...u can hear it all over hisd stuff...thats one of the elements the people generally react to in his music...get up
of course ....so what...and thats just about sums up mjs music...so what

Micheal Jackson was very talented. Good singer, great dancer and showman.

The Beatles are totally different, but had far more impact on music than MJ.

But the music of The Beatles is boring and unmoving...and their music has the personality of tofu.

You think he is good, that means you enjoy him, great I enjoy him some also. Most people who are good musicians or really into great music tend to have a little higher standards.

Here is a band that has been a group that musicians love, they have been at for years do very well in the jazz/funk world. Some of the best musicians and singers in world have played in this band. They never do the same song the same way twice, they are in complete command of their music and in the groove every time. I saw them in 98, amazing show with Maysa Leak as lead. This was from a few years back, Isaac Hayes had to cancel that morning so Incognito came and sounded this good.

It's very strange how some lies could of turns into a Legend and live for years and years if it just has the Wright Support and guidance through the years.
The Beatles are a good band that turns into some kind of a legend by the white media and racial organizations … a good band … not a legendary one...
A big fat lie that said they come up with new music while we all know that they didn’t invited rock and roll ... a lie that talk about hundreds of millions of record sales while we all know that there wasn't any official record sales in the 60s … a lie that said they sold more than 1 billion records while there best selling LB only sells 32 million ... that same lie who exposed by the fact that said they only have 2 LB among the list of the best selling LBs of all time with only 63 million record sales …
A band that achieved success with no real comptions in the music industry at that time... a player how scores goals not because he was great but because there was only 1 or 2 players in the field .
A 4 members with quarter talent who have to join together to make it a complet one .. quarter talent that could not made a big success as solo Individual artists .
A legend... a myth... the biggest musical lie in the 20th century that turns a good band into a legend called the Beatles.
