Default The Beatles

My other obsession besides The Eagles, The Fab Four. They have Impacted my life in such a way, their music is timeless, and they are all incredibly handsome. I love John's big brown eyes

Amazing EL, since they broke up 20 years before you were born! Their music is timeless - I'm just curious how you came to be such a huge fan. You know the old joke - I didn't know Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings - and that joke usually is intended for people even twice your age!

Where do you want to start?

First of all here is an approximate Top 10:

1. Yesterday
2. Norwegian Wood
3. A Day In The Life
4. Hey Jude
5. Come Together
6. Strawberry Fields Forever
7. Get Back
8. Back In The USSR
9. Revolution
10. Eleanor Rigby

It would have been easier to list 20. I could go on about this for a very long time.

My favorite Beatle would have to Be John, because he was very intelligent, witty, and could be arrogant at times. but he was funny.

Looking at the "Top 10" songs by the Brits...I would only change to include "Blackbirds". As for albums...wow, that is so hard to make a choice as to "the best". I'd probably have to go with "Abby Road" but "Sgt Peppers" is so close that I go into a tailspin trying to decide between them.

I guess I was in High School when the Beatles rose to fame. What a great time to be a kid!

I was a huge Beatles fan back in the day! I remember the Beatles arrived in the USA on my 12th birthday, February 7, 1964. One of my most vivid memories is going to see "A Hard Day's Night" in the theater, and screaming along with everyone else every time they sang!
