The Beatles

I remember that my Grandma and Pop bought The Beatle’s “red and blue” double albums for my parents back in Christmas 1978. The red album contains The Beatles greatest hits from 1962-1966 and the blue album contains The Beatle’s greatest hits from 1967-1970.  For me 1978 and 1979 were the years in which I really enjoyed listening to those records.  I remember really liking the song from the blue album titled “Here comes the Sun” (1969).  At the ages of four and five I used to get my mum to play that song often and would listen to the song whenever I was outside in the backyard. Also when I was four and five I used to enjoy wearing long pretty dresses.

I re-started my love of The Beatle’s music when I was in Year 10, which was in 1989.  I remember in Year 11 that my brother bought me a cassette by The Beatles titled “The Beatles Remastered”, which contains The Beatles re-makes of songs by other artists. Some of the songs included on the cassette were called?  I used to play that cassette on my stereo system when I was living in a caravan in my parents’ backyard.  The songs I really dug from that cassette were “Long Tall Sally” and “Twist and Shout”!!   I used to feel good and like dancing around to those songs.  I also used to constantly listen to The Beatles, red and blue albums when I was living in the caravan. (Today those records are a bit scratched) oops. 

Also in 1990 I bought a poster book of The Beatles.  Back from 1990-1995, I had some of The Beatles posters hung up on the walls in my caravan.  These posters were of The Beatles from the years 1963-1965.  Here are few photos of The Beatles from 1963 to 1965.

When music CDs came out I bought the following Beatles CDs: “Rubber Soul” (1965), “Beatles for Sale” (1964), “Help” (1965), Revolver” (1966), “Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts club Band” (1967), and “Abbey Road” (1969). 

What I like about The Beatles records is their change in music style throughout the years and the way they used to dress and style their hair.  This meaning from the years 1964 – 1970. In my opinion their radical change and altering of music styles is what made them so appealing.  Just from 1964 -1967, their change from straight to psychedelic.  They changed the face of music and the way people write music.  The Beatles made musicians want to and feel more comfortable about veering away from writing and performing conservatively.

Well if you would like to comment about my The Beatles blog feel free to do so. That’s all from me today. 23/10/2007

Last night, which was the 3rd of March 2013,  I saw Paul McCartney and U2 playing live in concert on TV.  The show came up unexpectedly during an ad break of a movie I’d been watching.  According to Youtube the concert occurred on July 2 & 6, 2005.  In addition, The live event was aired from London and was being performed as a Live 8 event.  The money raised from the concert was to be given to the poor and suffering living in the world and half of the money was to go to Africa.

The song titled “Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band was sung by both Paul McCartney and Bono.  I can say that Paul McCartney did a fine job with his great singing and dyed brown hair.  Also  on stage were some men dressed up in the 1960’s Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band regalia and they were playing mouth instruments!  It was very exciting to watch.

There was a large audience watching the show in an outside arena and I saw a lady who I guess to be in her 60’s or 70’s at the front of the audience and there was also a young girl wearing a bikini with the British flag, standing next the elderly lady.
