Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

Also, I absolutely don't understand this talk about Dylan as if he should be a mid-late first rounder.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

im prolly a bit younger than you all in my music taste, so i guess my only problem with Dylan being in my top 5 is that i can't ****ing understand a word he says in his songs

Also, woulda picked MJ #1, and Lennon #2

In regards to whoever said there are legit 50 possible 1st rounds talents, i dunno about that. i'd say theres about 20. in music theres just the way up their tiers that the 2nd tier just will not ever get to imo

Wat. He wasn't even the primary influence in The Beatles imo. But taking him is like peanut butter without jelly.

edit: Oh there goes Paul. The Beatles best albums are driven by Paul... Sgt Pepper & Abbey Road.

If I didn't pick Bruce it would have been Dylan or Paul.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

Advanced Genius Theory is an okay book, but it does shed a lot of interesting light on Dylan. There premise in general is that once someone proves themselves to be a genius who is frequently ahead of their time criticisms of their current work could be invalid because you don't know if they are just ahead of their time again. This argument is pretty circular, but I think it does shed some light on criticisms of a lot of artists and musicians who are frequently experimenting with different things that often piss of their fans because they aren't similar enough to what they loved in the past.

McCartney was a top 3 guy on my board and is obviously very good value at 5.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

It's really hard for me to separate Lennon and Paul though, it's why picking a Beatle wasn't a no brainer for me.

He's definitely lost a step as a performer in his old age. I still think he's the GOAT songwriter and would pick him over anyone else.

Dylan-Lennon-McCartney were my top 3.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

I wouldn't have drafted either Lennon or McCartney before 6th or so because they're just so so so much better together. Eh maybe I'm wrong.

Generally, whichever one is singing is primarily responsible for that song. They get co-writer credit on most of the Beatles' stuff, but it generally should be fairly obvious who actually wrote the song.

I PM'd Noze - I honestly don't have much time left tonight. Hopefully he'll get to me with his pick so I can start my writeup.

due to personal preferences, I would've taken Lennon #1. But Paul was certainly successful enough to go #1.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

Lol post-Beatles John is far better and more impactful than post-Beatles Paul. Correct, together they would end this draft, but that doesn't make John a less than #1 pick. Paul wasn't in my top 5, though.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

I guess I have to re-read the OP, because I have no idea how Elvis isn't the clear #1. And I don't even like his music at all.

Re: Music Label Draft Picks and Discussion Thread

Actually disregard my previous comment now I'm thinking Paul is def top 3. I don't think Lennon is on his own though. Hard to explain I just think Paul was the more creative one with not much evidence to back up my theory, heh.
