speaking of his likes/dislikes i thought it was interesting in the "no direction" doc that he didn't like
what people were doing to his songs when they covered them. he described in a negative way
the "jingle jangle" sound of them. and he coined the term - i'm guessing - in his "tambourine man!"
his subtle dis of the turtles, who's breakout tune was a cover of his, practically spitting out "some band
called the turtles" made me laugh. and saying sonny and cher ripped off his song style with, as he
called it, "i got me babe" was hilarious too.
there was a great moment in a beatles press conference when reporters were asking if they got any
satisfaction or sense of validation by so many big names covering their tunes. a flat "no" they said and
then someone asked who does the best versions of their songs. of course lennon had the conversation
ender by very bluntly saying "us"
