I don't hate Paul McCartney's songs but somehow I felt it was like a lullaby on the half-time show...I mean football is a rough man's game...and I thought Steven Tyler or Mick Jagger would've been more appropriate. They should've saved McCartney for Tennis...

Anyways...the Patriots won...and that's all that matters...

At least Paul McCartney didn't have a "wardrobe malfunction".

What's worse than listening to The Beatles? Listing to 1 ex-Beatle.

It seemed tired to me. Its like they tried too hard to tame down the show. PM's a good singer and performer, but they didn't even do anything original or new. They were all old Beatle's or Wing's songs. What about today's band? Do they have any of their own songs?

Tired... that's what it was.

I liked it, and I'm pretty young...kind of interesting to watch just b/c I'd never seen him before! And you have to admit...irregardless of last year's incident, the level of this year's musical performance far exceeded everything they had going on last year.

I actually think it was one of the best half-time shows in over 10 years. The bar I was in, the entire crowd was singing to Hey Jude. I thought that was cool.

IMHO, I think only stuck with 60-70's Rock can still like "The Beatles", I relly think they are overated when compared with Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.
Anyway, Football was good (except NE won), ad(s) where good, so the half time show is excused.

...because Zep and Floyd are much more modern, after all... :roll:

Personally I do like Zep and Floyd more than the Beatles. But I'd hardly refer to a Beatles fan as "stuck with 60-70's Rock" just because I'm stuck in the 70-80's.

Did you mean "more recent" ?. It will be interesting to see where these three will stand after 25-30 years in comparision with then main stream music, fan then might be lot less biased.

That is one way to interpret the other is, Beatles may find it harder impress the later generation than the other two (it is just my opinion), think this a nicer way to put the same statement.
With respect to "stuck with 60-70's Rock" definetly there is always "a Beatles fan" who will fit that criteria

Think I am deviating from the topic.
