their music isn't immediately catchy. it's more wondering and open ended to get stuck in the head. which would make it more melodic than catchy. melodic yeah maybe in a weird way, catchy no.
it's like this, Beach boys melodic. Beatles catchy. there's a difference I think. right?
Yeah they're definitely different things, melodicism and catchiness. A lot of really catchy songfs aren't particularly melodic. But I think the Beatles were definitely masters of melody. The Beach Boys were masters of harmony, which is in my opinion their defining trait.
Also, they could be catchy as all get-out man!
