I have an appreciation for all types of music, but for me, The Beatles are hands down the greatest band in history. My older siblings were very much into the Beatles, so there was never a time I was not exposed to their music. It's amazing to me how many different musical styles they went through in their relatively short career together. I quite enjoy their solo works as well, but there was something extra special when they all got together.
I remember seeing Yellow Submarine when I was very young, and it freaked me out at the time. I found the giant hand and the Apple Bonker guys to be pretty scary! It would be many many years before I would watch it again and gain a whole new appreciation for it. There are a lot of truly inventive sequences in there, not to mention the fantastic music. I heard that the recently discussed CGI remake of this film has been cancelled, and that's probably a good thing. I doubt any new version could really improve upon the original.
