I’ve noticed that there are three types of people in this world; those who love The Beatles, those who hate The Beatles, and those who don’t know they know The Beatles. Well, whatever type of person you may be, I just want to inform you that The Beatles changed my life in more ways than I thought a band could possibly do, and if you listen they can do the same for you.
They wrote songs about love, war, hate, politics, world events, and everything else. They put together words and music and transformed
those words into magic. I’ve been listening to their music a lot lately and some of the lyrics bring tears to my eyes. Take for example, the song “Because.”
“Because the world is round, it turns me on. Because the wind is high, it blows my mind. Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry”
These lyrics combined with their voices in unison makes me cry! I think the way they describe the world in metaphor is absolutely genius. I love it and this song tends to be my favorite most days. As all Beatles fans know, you cant really have a favorite Beatles song or album, you can only have a favorite song or album of the day, or week, or month.
Those who don’t know that they know who The Beatles are should buy an album and just listen. Maybe you’ll want to buy another and maybe someday you’ll be able to point out one of their songs on the radio in your car or at a store. I didn’t appreciate their music or much music at all until about 2 years ago and my life, as far as music goes, has never been the same.
I’m not too sure where I was going with this blog, I just wanted to share my thoughts about how I feel about them. Thats all.
