I'd appreciate it if someone can help me understand this. I'd be embarrassed to admit this to anyone my age (57) in real life!

I grew up with the Beatles. Had all their albums. But they just don't seem to do it for me anymore. Some of their stuff almost seems a little simplistic and dull.

The group that has stayed with me the longest and who I appreciate even more now is The Doors. Find the music more gripping. Love the organ and Jim Morrison's voice and poetry.

But how can I not like the Beatles anymore?????

Probably because you've heard every song they've ever made like 1,000,000+ times.



That's my reason anyway, lol

After a while the novelty wears off. Things lose their luster. I like the Beatles, but I just do not go out of my way to listen to them anymore. I prefer everything from Revolver on. The she loves me yeah type earlier stuff I never cared for. If not for their later material I never would have been a fan.

I am a huge Doors fan, and I will accept the latest theory about Morrison's death. I had been a holdout for a while, but this latest story which says he was carried out of a Paris club after overdosing there seems credible. So much for him living in Oregon. Manazarek just released something with Roy Clark? I think. I heard it at the radio station. Played a track on air from it. It's ok. Nothing extravagant. Just two old guys playing some blues.

I think this is normal and happens with the best of bands. I do find tho that after years and years of no longer listening, going back seems to refreshen things.

I can tell you that this phenomenon you mention happens more from overplay of certain songs. Hey Jude is more likely to lose it's luster than "Old Brown Shoe" or "Don't Let Me Down" because Hey Jude has been played more

Yeah, people burn out on things.

I'm a younger guy though. I have to admit I think I like the Beatles better as songwriters than as singers. Their voices don't always work for me. So I sometimes prefer covers of their stuff, whereas real "Beatles people" I've seen almost seem annoyed anyone covers them.
