When he says "Lets write a swimming pool" he means that they are going to write a song, make money, and buy a swimming pool.

The Beatles are the most over rated band ever. I think that if people were left to form their own opinion about them most people would like them, maybe even love them, but very few would see them as the gods everyone sees them to be now. Their hype is mostly generated by the their own hype. Same as Elvis.

tl;dr Society is very impressionable.

"The fact that so many books still name the Beatles “the greatest or most significant or most influential” rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success: the Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worth of being saved."

Duke Ellington had more top 10 hits in the US than the Beatles. He probably had three or four times as many top 20 hits. I don't have the exact numbers, but John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" and "Blue Train" are among the best-selling jazz albums.

So all of the above is a load of BS. One could just as well claim that Ellington is only popular with critics because of the unbelievable number of hits he produced.

Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" is the best-selling jazz album of all time, and I am sure there are many people who would rank Davis higher than Ellington or Coltrane. Are they doing that because of his sales numbers? Herbie Hancock had some huge record sales as well, yet I doubt that these sales numbers are the reason why he is a well-respected musician. But when it comes to the Beatles, they are popular with rock critics only because their records sold well? Uh... why? Because you don't like them?
