Well OKAY, full disclosure: there is one song. At a bar with a ton of revelers for my then-future-bro-in-law's bachelor party, the song "Help!" came on the jukebox, and they had it up SO LOUD. I couldn't believe how great it sounded! I'd heard it a million times before to little effect. But ever since then when I hear it...it connects. I hear it how it sounded in that moment.
So there's one that broke through. Who knows, maybe what I need is just to hear them all at ear-splitting volume.
Yay! My Beatles theory still intact!
My Dad has this amazing speaker system connected to his PC and forgive me, I know nothing about the technicalities of sound surround (or whatever it is), just know that it sounds A-MA-ZING. I've listened to a few of my albums on it, and you really haven't heard anything til you've heard it on this. I have to get me one of those. Since most music junkies have something like this I won't harp on, but it is great
Also when I was about 11 I remember hearing The Cure on one of those crap music things they have on the street - you know those silly things with a rubbish DJ spinning discs (DJs in the 80s not today's DJs!) on a mobile stage. In Ireland they called it the Beat on the Street *cringe* but at the time it was so cool! But anyway the song sounded brill so loud and made me listen to The Cure then. So it depends on the setting I think.
