Favorite Beatles Albums of Elvis Costello Aren’t the Band’s Best-Selling Albums
Elvis Costello is a major classic rock artist who was influenced greatly by The Beatles. In an op-ed for Rolling Stone, he claimed that his favorite Beatles albums are Rubber Soul and Revolver. Here’s why he adored those songs, plus a look at the Beatles album he described as “jagged.”
Elvis Costello attempts to choose a favorite Beatles song from the albums “Rubber Soul” and “Revolver.”
A list of the greatest artists of all time was released by Rolling Stone. They rated The Beatles as the best of the best in the book. For the list, Costello wrote an essay about The Beatles’ greatness. Although Costello appreciated The Beatles’ early bubblegum, he felt the band began to mature after the release of their song “Ask Me Why.”
He said, “And they began to really grow up.” “They progressed from simplistic love songs to adult stories like ‘Norwegian Wood,’ which dealt with the darker side of love, and on to bigger concepts than you would expect to find in catchy pop lyrics.”
Why Did The Beatles Sing “She Was Just 17” in “I Saw Her Standing There”?
Following the performance, Costello praised the period of The Beatles’ career during which “Norwegian Wood” was recorded. Rubber Soul and Revolver are two of his all-time favorite songs, he says. “From the moment you picked up Revolver, you realized it was different. They’re even wearing sunglasses indoors and not looking at the camera in the photo on the back of the cover… And the music was both weird and vibrant. If I had to pick a favorite song from those albums, it would be ‘And Your Bird Can Sing’ … no, ‘Girl’ … no, ‘For No One’ … and so on, and so on….”
