Time To Get Manly 34: The Beatles - Rubber Soul

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

The Beatles - Rubber Soul

I figured there would be at least one Beatles record on this list, because it's kind of impossible to make any essential albums list without including the Beatles. It doesn't really matter if your target audience is men, children, Communists or chipmunks. Everybody loves the Beatles! Rubber Soul is an especially appropriate selection for men however, as it's packed with manly topics like cars, morning wood, X-ray vision and violently threatening the woman you love to stay faithful or else you'll murder her. Perfect!

This choice calls in to question the list maker on many levels.

OH, I don't want to appear obvious so instead of picking from one of 4 albums that could make any top 10 list of best albums ever (Revolver, Sgt Pepper, Rubber Soul, Abby Road) I'll pick like their 7th best album. It's still a good record, BUT COME ON!!!!

Abby Road is the best by the way, unequivocally ;)

I think it goes without saying that this whole list is questionable on many, many levels. ;)
