Each week, the pop culture website Pop-A-Looza shares some posts from my vast 'n' captivating Boppin' (Like The Hip Folks Do) archives. The latest shared post asks that musical question, "Is Beatles VI really my all-time favorite album?"
I'm generally more of a single-song guy than I am a whole-album guy, so I tend to write more about individual songs rather than albums. But: exceptions! I've written about Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the White Album, the Monkees' Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones, Ltd. and both Headquarters and The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees (and the compilation Monkeemania), the Byrds' Mr. Tambourine Man, the Ramones' Rocket To Russia and Subterranean Jungle, the Barracudas' Drop Out With The Barracudas, Fools Face's Tell America, the [Bay City] Rollers' Elevator, best-of sets by the Hollies, the Bobby Fuller Four, and the Dave Clark Five, and a nifty (if schizophrenic) various-artists set called Heavy Metal.
My favorite remains my favorite: the music the Beatles released from 1964 through 1966, A Hard Day's Night through Revolver. The spotlight falls on Beatles VI and its moptopped brethren, all in the latest Boppin' Pop-A-Looza.
