"My theory is that when it comes to important subjects, there are only two ways a person can answer. Which way they chose, tells you who that person is. For instance, there are only two kinds of people in the world, Beatles people and Elvispeople. Now 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, tells you who you are."

Close. Very close. Beatles have the songwriting. Elvis has the voice and the status as an incredible performer. Both were innovators, Elvis at Sun Studios, the Beatles for their whole career. The Beatles barely put a foot wrong whereas Elvis stumbled, in the 60s with bad films and again in the 70s as a bloated Vegas act. Nonetheless there was only one Presley, the aura, the looks, the voice.

Elvis. Just.

Elvis, because he gave it all that he had.

However, Mama Thornton's original Hound Dog was a billion times better.

"I actually had one cute hat, and it blew off at the CVS parking lot. And this whole car full of black kids ran over it, for no reason. AND THEY SAW IT! THEY SAW IT!"

If Elvis hadn't existed, someone else would have been Elvis. If the Beatles hadn't existed, music would be drastically different today.

Totally disagree. Elvis was unique. What he was doing at Sun Studios in 1955 was just as innovative as what the Beatkes were doing on Sgt Pepper.

I refuse to adhere to the terms upon which the question is asked on the basis that no fuckin' videostore nerd with a fucking jutting out jaw can dictate the degrees of my musical taste to me :D I DO like em equally so fuck Quentin Tarantino.

The thing about the Beatles to me is that their songs have so much simplicity and relevance on the most basic of human emotions. I've been experiencing things lately in regard to human relationships that it seems that no matter what is going on there is a Beatles song that personifies EXACTLY what I am feeling at that time. It's like for every different human emotion that relates to the relationships we have with each other, there is a song to define that. I've never had that with any other band or musician. It's the genius of them and what continues to make them relevant and so loved today.
