  • Thanks, Dan. I saw lots gone, but catch so many complaints from Colin and the rest for doing stuff, I've given up. --~ TK MyTalk 02:31, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

Shouldn't the stub tag be on the article, not here? Or is that CP style? Anyway, I think the later compilations should be added (and I think pre- and post=breakup divisions should be inserted). There should be a film/video sub heading. Should the American releases be separately listed or take precedence (remember, every album before Sgt. Pepper was different in the US)? Should singles be listed? Should the Beatles be named before their awards are listed (yes, I'll do that one of these days)? Human 18:33, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

  • Human, we prefer at Conservapedia to use as few signs/templates as possible, as compared to other 'pedias, and in that spirit, prefer to place stub tags on the talk pages, instead of cluttering up article pages, like too many adverts alongside the road, eh? I should think Billboard or ASCAP/BMI would be the definitive source for the song list....--~ TK MyTalk 18:46, 12 April 2007 (EDT)
Ah, great, that answers my question re: the stub tag. Makes sense, since people can still search for them and find them through the talk page.

"tv shows aren't italicized" Whoops, sorry. Human 16:38, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

table format for discography etc.

I like it, it's a lot better than what we had. However, what happened to the compilations and rereleases? Some are rather notable (and unique, eg, the BBC stuff). Can they be in a third section?

Also, can that whole bottom section be turned into a template so it can easily be added to the bottom of any Beatles-related file someone creates? Human 13:42, 20 April 2007 (EDT)

Their Politics

Lennon at least was a Marxist-

I think they were all atheists? One of Lennon's songs has the lyric "I don't believe in Jesus", "God is a concept by which you measure your pain" etc.

John Lennon was an Atheist (Imagine). George Harrison was Hindu. Paul McCartney is a Roman Catholic (Let It Be). I`m all to sure what Ringo Starr believes in. TobyKeet 05:41, 24 November 2010 (EST)

Yes? Your point being? Also, remember usually politics isn't the same as religion. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 06:41, 24 November 2010 (EST)
"Mother Mary" = marijuana. -danq 14:02, 25 November 2010 (EST)
You find that their religious beliefs effects their politics. Because John Lennon was an Atheist, it made him very anti-war. Lennon`s music is more political where McCartney`s songs are more emotional. I did a bit on Let It Be, and that song is actually based on a dream McCartney had where his dead mother came to to him and told him to "let it be". His mother`s name was Mary, hence Mother Mary.
