Hello, everyone! This is my very first article, and I'm really excited about it. This article is on how I became a fan of the Beatles, my favourite band. First, I'd like to thank ChiliPepperLuv and WIBBILY_WOBBLY for the inspiration. Their articles are brilliant, and I encourage the fans to read them.
I have been a fan for as long as I can remember. My parents have been fans for a long time, and my grandparents were original fans. Being born in Liverpool, I was destined to be a Beatles fan. You'd have to be warped to be from Liverpool and not be a Beatles fan. Being exposed to...
I started liking them only this year. My sister said "Hey, you've got to listen to these guys. You're going to love them!" So I listened. I said "They're so amazing! What was that song called?" she said "You Like Me Too Much." And I said "What? No I don't" She said "No, you idiot! That's the song title." And I said "Ohhhh, I get it." That's just how I got started liking them. After a while, I did some research on them. I soon became obsessed with them. (Especially George Harrison.)
The Beatles are loved by millions of people around the world, including myself. I have loved the Beatles since I was twelve years old, and my love has continued to grow since then. Unfortunately, not everyone understands my passion and love for the Beatles. My sister gives me crap about it all the time. Always going, "Your obsession is weird." More frequently, she says, "You HAD to like the Beatles." Rambling aside, I am focusing on how I got into the Beatles and why I love them.
One of the last times I saw him was July. My daughter had brain surgery and I could't stay long. "Do you want me to come with you?" George offered. "What? No, you can't. You've got to stay here and get rid of the cancer." I can't believe I said a thing like that. "So? I've missed you. I don't want you to have to leave me." I was most likely blushing when he grabbed my hand.
Hello, Beatlefellows! Peaceandlove67 here, and I'm going to name my favorite Beatles songs and why. I'd like to give a shout out to ChiliPepperLuv for inspiring this idea. This excludes cover songs. They have to be exclusively by the Beatles.
1. "Helter Skelter"
The reason this song is my favorite is that I love the overall sound of the song. I love the guitar riff, the drum beat, and the vocals. I also love the ending. "I've got blisters on my fingers!"
John, George, and Ringo never left Paul's side, and they stayed outside the hospital room, not talking, but able to feel each others' anxious feelings about their friend. Paul hadn't woken up on the way to the hospital, but there was still a pulse, and now all they could do was hope he'd be all right.
John had something else to think about, too. Even when Paul had been on the edge of losing consciousness, he had still said to John: "Does this mean we're not breaking up?" Was the Beatles staying together really so important to him? Hadn't Paul spent the last couple of years trying to...
John, George, and Ringo spent the rest of the day running everywhere in town, searching for Paul. They caused quite a stir. Not many people saw the Beatles together in public anymore - even only three of them. People poured out of their houses, and everywhere the Beatles went, they were surrounded with screams and questions: "EEE! The Beatles are back!" "Are you going to play for us again?" "Where's Paul? How come there's only three of you?" It had never occured to John, George, or Ringo how much the fans had missed actually seeing them perform. But everyone they met seemed to feel...
As soon as Paul opened his eyes the next day, he knew something had changed. The air had been bitterly cold last night, but Paul had just lay there, unable to get up and find somewhere more sheltered.
Now, he tried to move his arms and to sit up. He couldn't.
Frowning, Paul tried to move again. And again. His body wouldn't respond. Something had happened to him after all those nights of lying there in the cold. His body wasn't working properly.
Paul's eyes, the only part of him that could still move, widened in fear. When he first decided to run away, he had never...
The next day, none of the Beatles stayed at Abbey Road longer than a few minutes. They came, saw Paul wasn't there again, and left without a word. Probably they would have stayed to chat and play around if it had been the early days and they weren't worried that they'd just end up fighting. But these days, whenever they were together, that was all they seemed to do.
Was that why Paul wasn't coming? John tried to forget about him, and Yoko did her best to distract him by asking for help with her various art projects, but John kept thinking about it. It wasn't like Paul not to show...
I just read that Paul brought a ten year old fan up on stage during a concert and they did a duet ! (She even played bass with him) I thought that was so sweet, I just had to share it!

I get tired of my sister giving me crap about being a Beatles fan. At one point, I said, "Look, I'm fine with the fact that you're not a Beatles fan, but don't give me crap because I am. I don't give you crap over Lady GaGa." She said, "At least Lady GaGa is talented!" How can one listen to the Beatles and say they're not talented? They didn't really listen. And if my sister thinks her insults are going to stop me from listening to the Beatles, then she's pathetic.
