Are you a Beatles person or an Elvis person?

Asked by Deja_vu (4157points) October 24th, 2010

According to this deleted scene from Pulp Fiction, there are two types of people. Beatles people and Elvis people. Beatles people can like Elvis, and Elvis people can like The Beatles, but nobody likes them both equally. Somewhere you have to make a choice and that choice tell you who you are.

I am a Beatles person.

And I am not even close to being Elvis’ biggest fan, to say the least.

Because I saw Elvis live on tv when I was a kid and fell in love I have to say him. Ed Sullivan Show. They were both unique, yes; but Elvis was incredibly handsome and quite the innovator back then. I loved the Beatles, too. (-;

The Beatles. They were so awesome. Almost every band I like has been deeply, deeply influenced by them to some extent.

The Beatles, I remember the Beatles 1 compilation being one of the first CD’s I ever loved.

So Beatles.

Beatles. Always imitated, never duplicated. I grew up listening to the Beatles. I grew up listening to my parents talk about the Beatles. I learned to play the guitar listening to the Beatles. Nobody in my lifetime has duplicated the ability to sort of feel good about stuff through music as the Beatles. I am not sure how anybody could justify disliking the Beatles. The stuff that was popular when I was a kid was either grim, mysogynistic, or manufactured. Something very honest about the music they made. Simple in a way, but universal in appeal.

I love the Beatles. My wife loves Elvis. Might have something to do with her being deaf.

I’ve got more dislike for the Beatles than I do for Elvis, so I guess given the choice, I’m an Elvis guy.
Can’t say I really like Elvis, though.

Both. Their careers overlapped during the teenage years.

If I HAD to pick one, I’d say the Beatles.

Go Liverpool FC!

I like both but I like the Beatles more.

However, in defiance of the categorical parameters set by the deleted scene, I declare that I like the Stones and Jimi Hendrix a lot more.

@noelleptc: Sure he could have…as satire.

Deja_vu's avatar

@cprevite Maybe not John but I could definitely picture Paul wearing a rhinestone jumpsuit.

If you asked me anytime prior to two months ago I would have said Beatles, but then I went to Graceland and Sun Records in Memphis and sort of “fell for” the legend. I can’t not appreciate the aesthetic ties to the Mississippi delta as well as the many stories of his generosity.

Two interesting factoids about Elvis: 1. More people watched his live concert from Hawaii than watched the moon landing, and 2. He became an international superstar despite not having ever performed outside of the U.S.

And, Elvis was a fox. And I just find him more interesting. Also very sad.
