They've got excellent music, and it's very catchy, don't get me wrong. I like the Beatles a lot. That said, their songs have as many lyrics as one verse by guys like Sage.
I mean, it's great stuff, no doubt, don't get me wrong. The Beatles do have some examples of great lyricism (Penny Lane springs to mind). But I think lyricists today are more skilled in terms of wordplay.
I don't see how Lennon and McCartney have porr lyricism, esp. Lennon who wrote many great songs in his solo carrier.
Songs like A Day in the Life have great lyrics.
And I don't know how lyrics today are more skilled. I personally believe that no artist comes to close to guys like Bob Dylan, lyrics wise.

i really like Bowie too
Stupid oversight on my part not to mention Waters/Gilmour. I sure do love the Floyd.
Bowie's all right, haven't listened to too much... the stuff I've heard sounds a lot like Pink Floyd actually.

Their lead singer was Neil Finn and apparently he was one of the greatest, people likened him to McCartney in how good a songwriter he was. I have no real opinion as I haven't listened to alot of music by the Beattles. But yeah, check him out if you get a chance and let me know your thoughts.
My favourite song by them is probably "Don't dream its over".....it actually reached number 2 in the US in the 80's.
