Ahhh the Beatles...

Music is a life-saver for me. I grew up in a household ran by hippies lol and my father would sit at night playing his guitar on the front porch. We (my mother, sister and self) would gather around and listen, sing and sometimes dance around under the moonlight...I still remember how beautiful I thought my mother would look in the shadows, looking up and seeing  the moon shining through her blond hair... sorry i was lost in a memory :) Anyway, one of their favorites for this was The Beatles. Across the Universe, Blackbird and Octopuses Garden are the ones I remember the most. In dark times I play these and, if just for that moment, I feel safe and loved. :)

that is the thing that always strikes me about the Beatles. They really were special.

YRS I AGREE THEY WERE THE BEST TO ME SO MANY GREAT SONGS I CAN LISTEN FOR HOURS

The Beatles certainly were an amazing, revolutionary band. It is great to see people who have positive memories associated with them. They were, as Lennon put it "just a band that made it very, very big", the number of lives they touched is beyond measure.

i totally agree, music is a life-saver & the beatles are amongst my favs. i got to visit their hometown in england & it was awesome:)
