Well, It would have to be...The Beatles I went to a Beatles concert in '63, at The Stadium. I thought they were just FANTASTIC. & I screamed & screamed as they sang. I had a very small bedroom back then, with The Beatles pictures over 2 walls, as well as on the ceiling! I'm afraid to say I didn't even like Elvis until he died. Isn't that strange??? No idea why that was. I used to watch all his movies on tv before he died.
These were not really comparable as one was a single person and the other a group of 4 !!! They both were great entertainers who deserve the recognition they now have. If I had to choose though,I think I would go with the Beatles, only as they had the talents of each member which brought a fresh aspect to what they did!Lennon ans McCartney were such a great,as well as prolific, songwriting team,and I don't think the world has really ever quite seen the likes of them.But THEY were NOT the Beatles,only half of this much adored group!!
Although I love music in most forms, I was never a fan of either The Beatles or Elvis. However, I have loved some renditions of Beatles songs done by other artists, so I'll have to go with the Beatles as the better of the two.
Elvis!!! Do I need to say more? Elvis was SO versatile! The Beatles were great but, let's face it, a lot of their music sounded the same. Prolific songwriters, I agree. Elvis was unique in that he had such a beautiful, sexy voice for ballads but was also, without doubt, The King of Rock!!! And everything in between. You've got to love Elvis' Gospel albums!
I was always in love with Elvis and then about 20 years ago, I read 2 books on his life and I fell out of love with him rather quickly.
I liked the beatles as they were so popular when I was growing up or rather grown up enough to be out at dances and enjoying their music.
