It was a different time back then.
They were. Everything was simple and boring; they barely even bothered writing lyrics. McCartney certainly got better, but never really all that great.

Obviously I've not listened to everything they ever did, but I've heard a good portion of it, and I've never heard anything remotely interesting or clever. Most of it is only even catchy in a children's-TV-show-theme kind of way.
