Something I Hate...9

I hate hearing Beatles songs on commercials.

Not that I think that it really wasn't the intention of McCartney and Lennon to write jingles, and that Hello, Goodbye -- or Hello, Goodbuy --really is meant to help sell Target's excellent selection of, well, everything, but it has gotten to be gross. Damn you Michael Jackson.

"If it's allowed to happen, every Beatles song ever recorded is going to be advertising women's underwear and sausages. We've got to put a stop to it in order to set a precedent. Otherwise it's going to be a free-for-all. It's one thing you're dead, but we're still around! They don't have any respect for the fact that we wrote and recorded those songs, and it was our lives."
-George Harrison November 1987


  1. Yes! YES! Who the hell owns Apple records now? Michael sold them right? Does Paul own them finally? Is he doing this? Please tell me he's not selling these songs to Target or whomever.

  2. Michael still owns the publishing rights. Paul wouldn't do that. he's not bankrupt.

  3. It is a bastardization of the music we love. And George was right...it was their lives. Down with M.J.

  4. Amen, Micheal likes boys.

  5. You're right.


    It's worser than Book of Mormon action figurines.
