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 up suddenly after spending the last few months controlling everything the band did. Then again, John never would've thought it was like Paul to take the leadership of the Beatles away from him. They were best friends - or at least, he'd thought they were. Lately, it had been hard to tell. So hard, in fact, that a part of John was almost glad Paul had stopped coming.
George spent the day with his guitar, practising the various songs he'd written over the last couple of years and never managed to show John and Paul. If Paul kept on not coming back, and the studio stayed empty, he could...

Hello, fellow Beatles fans. Today, I am writing my top 20 favorite Beatles songs. In this list, I will explain why I like the song, and I will list the lyric that sticks out to me. This excludes cover songs. They have to be originally by the Beatles.

1. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
I really like this song, because it has beautiful lyrics and an amazing guitar solo. I fell in love with it from the moment I heard it. Over all, it's a really beautiful song.
Lyric that sticks out to me: "I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love."

2. "Come Together"
I really like this song. The reasons I love "Come Together" are the following: it is one of the songs I associate with John, (he's my favorite Beatle), I love the bass line, it has a fantastic beat, and John's voice sounds amazing on this song, (of course, it always sounds amazing).
Lyric that sticks out to me: "He got hair down to his knees."

3. "Octopus's Garden"

I never thought that I would see Paul again. I never thought I would see Ringo, but a few years later, I did. I had already completed my schooling, and I was doing a few gigs as a guitarist. Out of the blue, I happened to encounter Paul and Ringo. I didn't think Paul would recognize me. I mean, he meets so many fans. There's no way he could remember all of them. I thought wrong. He recognized me. He walked up to me and greeted me. I said, "Hello, Paul! How have you been?" He said, "I've been all right. How are you?" I said, "I'm doing well." He introduced me to Ringo. While talking, Ringo said, "You're right, Paul. She is so much like John." I said, "I am John." They looked at me kinda strange. I said, "Well, I was John in a past life. I thought it was just coincidence that I was born exactly fourteen years after he died, but it wasn't." Paul said, "That explains why you're so much like him. You even favor him a bit in your appearance." Ringo said, "I never thought John would come back as..." I said, "I know. I never gave much thought to it, but I guess I'll have to get on with things and do whatever I need to do, and that's all there is to it." Before I left, Paul and Ringo hugged...

Yoko had short black hair and an indefinably unconventional look, and was about eighty. Her apartment was filled with various art projects, some much stranger than others. She didn't seem to recognize John or George at all, and George was rather surprised she'd even agreed to let them into her home. Although it was strange that she didn't recognize them. Wasn't John supposed to have been married to her?
"Who are you?" she said to them, once they'd come in.
"I told you, I'm John." John leaned closer to her. "Can't you tell?"
Yoko frowned. "You can't be John. You don't look anything like him. Besides, he's dead."
"You're not the first to tell me that," murmured John. "All these rumours of me death going around."
Yoko blinked at him. "Even if he wasn't, he'd be much older than you now."
"Hard to convince, isn't she?" John remarked to George. "Paul knew me faster than she did."
George was looking round the room, and his eyes landed on a photograph showing two people - Yoko much younger than she was now, with her black hair long and thick, and next to her was...

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!"

2. "It's Only Love"
I really like this song, because it's sweet, simple, and overall, it's a beautiful song. "It's only love, and that is all." That's the beauty of it, isn't it?

3. "Strawberry Fields Forever"
This is probably my favorite song from Magical Mystery Tour. It's a beautiful song. It makes me think of a dream, a fantasy, if you will. It's like an escape from anything that has ever hurt you. "Nothing is real." I like having fantasies like that.

4. "Come Together"

Of course, when I got back to my own time, I had no idea what my brief trip into the '60s had done. In fact, I soon started wondering if I had gone back in time at all - maybe I'd just seen someone who looked like Brian Epstein. I decided to visit a Liverpool music store. What could be better than a new Beatles CD straight from Liverpool?
That was where I got my first clue that something was different. The CDs were alphabetized by band, and the Beatles section was way bigger than I'd remembered. There were a lot more than just thirteen albums. Even with the Past Masters and Number One Hits and all that. There must have been hundreds!
I started looking through them all, and at first, I thought it was just a mistake. I noticed titles like "Imagine", "Band On the Run", and "All Things Must Pass". "Oh," I thought, "somebody must have put all the Beatles' solo albums with the real ones." But as I took a closer look at the solo albums, I noticed something funny. If these were Beatles' solo albums, why were all four Beatles on every single album cover?

This is what happened, back in the year 1966.
When Brian Epstein passed by the Cavern Club, noticing a teenage girl who was staring right at him and wearing very strange clothing, only to see her suddenly disappear, he concluded he must be overworked. People usually do in cases like these. He made himself an appointment with the doctor, who told him he would do best to go on a relaxing vacation and not think about work for the rest of the year.
But Brian Epstein had already planned out the Beatles' tour schedule. How could they do their tours if he wasn't allowed to keep an eye on them? There was only one thing to do, and Brian Epstein cancelled every Beatles venue for 1966.
At first, the Beatles were very disappointed. But then Paul told them, this could be the most fun they'd ever had! They could try a new sound, maybe put out a new concept album using one of those really long band names, and top it all off with their third movie - this time filmed and directed entirely by the Beatles! So Brian Epstein returned from his vacation at the end of the year, refreshed and reenergized, to find the Beatles had released the Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club...

I remember how things were before they changed.
No one else does. All they ever knew is the way things are now. But I do remember - because I was the one who changed them.
On that particular day, I woke up right away knowing something was different. I had been saving up for years and years to take a trip to Liverpool, home of my beloved Beatles, and today, finally, was the day I woke up in a Liverpool hotel room. Nobody back home understood why I would choose Liverpool as my vacation site, and I couldn't have explained to them - to be able to go back to where the Beatles lived, to see where they were playing before they made it to the top, would be like finally being close to them, as though maybe, just maybe, I could bridge the fifty-year time gap and stand beside them. Today, I was going out to visit the Cavern Club.
When I got up, like I always did, I turned on my laptop to check the Beatles fan club I belonged to. No new postings - again. What was the matter? Just because it was 2016, people thought the Beatles didn't matter anymore?

First of all, wow. Those guys in the photo sure are the sons of Beatles, aren’t they?

Second of all, there’s a chance they could be forming a band.

That news comes from an interview the BBC did with James McCartney, son of Beatles frontman Paul McCartney. James, who played guitar on two of his father’s most recent albums, said he’d like to record and tour with other Beatles offspring. (Darn. The name “The Offspring” is already taken. How about “Here Comes the Son?”)

He’d certainly have a qualified bunch to work with. Sean Lennon, Zak Starkey and Dhani Harrison are all musicians — and Starkey is the unofficial drummer for The Who.

McCartney told the BBC that getting Starkey on board would be the toughest part of forming the band.

“I don’t think it’s something that Zak wants to do,” he said. “Maybe Jason [another of Starr's sons who also plays drums] would want to do it. I’d be up for it. Sean seemed to be into it, Dhani seemed to be into it. I’d be happy to do it.”

John didn't know how long he'd walked around, with no clear idea of where he was headed, mind still spinning with everything Paul had said, when he realized he'd come right back to his tribute. The sky was tinted pink with the sunset, and soon it would be the same time as it had been in 1964 when he'd last been there. How he missed 1964....
There were less people around John's tribute now, and of course, the ones who were around didn't pay any attention to him, not realizing that the very man whom the tribute had been made for was standing next to them and staring at it. How had things gotten to the point that only his closest friend recognized him when he showed up all unexpected?
"Some fellow, this John Lennon must be," John said to the man next to him, knowing that he wouldn't be recognized and so talking about himself in the third person. He refused, though, to talk about himself in the past tense.
The man nodded. "Really something... But you mean, he was some fellow. He's dead."

Together at John's house, Paul and John discussed what they'd just overheard.
"It was those girls! I knew they had something to do with it!"
The thought that their fans would be involved in something like this was upsetting. The fans were supposed to love them; they were supposed to be on their side. But most of these girls did actually love John, Paul, and George. They did want what was best for them. They just had a very warped idea of what was best for them.
John and Paul could put the pieces together without much difficulty. Those girls they had seen had obviously kidnapped Ringo for some reason, and told George not to tell anyone about it or they would kill him. That much was obvious.
"Let's go back to George and tell him we know," Paul suggested. "He can't rescue him without our help."
John smiled at the way Paul got right to the point. He nodded.
And the two friends made their way back to George's house. "George," they called, knocking on the door. "You can tell us now, we know! Open up, George!"

Still shaken from what he had been told, George went back to his mates, waiting backstage. They looked at him questioningly.
"That was Ringo," George said, grateful for his ever-frowning demeanor and steady voice which gave away nothing. "He - he can't make it."
Paul frowned, and John's eyes narrowed. "But we're on in two minutes!" Paul protested. "We can't just go on without him!"
John looked very upset, too, but he stayed calmer. "All right, Paul, you take the drums."
Paul shook his head. "Ringo was goin' to play the drums! And what makes you think you can just leave me bass out?"
George turned away, pained to listen to this argument, which seemed so petty now. John and Paul wouldn't be talking like this if they knew where Ringo really was. And George couldn't tell them.
"Fine," John was saying now. "Play bass, then, and we can have no one on the drums; we've used bad drummers long enough before."
And suddenly George straightened up. His whole body felt lighter. That was it! That was how he could help Ringo, without making him lose his place in the band forever.

The Beatles left their venue that night, at once feeling both happy and discouraged. John, Paul, and George knew that now that they'd asked Ringo into their band, they were bigger and better than ever before, and all they had to do was bring him for their record contract at Abbey Road, and nothing could stop them from making it to the top. They had the perfect lineup.
If only their fans saw it that way. The crowds of girls who had come to see them weren't even listening to how their sound had gone from very good to - to so amazing there wasn't even a word to describe it. All they cared about was that Pete Best had been replaced. All night long, they screamed at the Beatles to change back to him. And waved signs demanding Pete's immediate return. And tried to attack the Beatles on their way in. Especially George. Word must have gotten out that asking Ringo to be a Beatle was his idea.
They hadn't even listened properly. Or looked at Ringo. If they had, they would never have given the boys a hard time about it.

Paul - so he gives you a back massage. He works your shoulders and upper back, before starting on the lower back. It gets all of your worries out and the knots that the trying day has forced into your back. You feel refreshed and so much happier when he’s done you can spend the rest of the night cuddling up.

John - so he plays you a song. It may be a new one he wants you to listen to and give your feedback on or it may be a classic cover of your favourite song. It just makes you feel so at home and happier after the awful day you’ve had. You can unwind to the beautiful sound of his guitar.

George - so he makes you dinner. Instead of you having to get up and make the food like usual, he lets you sit down, kick back and watch TV while he cooks you up your favourite dish. You feel so full and warm afterwards, which makes up for the horrible day you’ve been through.

Ringo - so he takes you for a walk. You need some fresh air after being cooped up in that stingy office all day. He takes your hand and leads you around the park as the lovely air fills your lungs and instantly takes the weight off your shoulders. He always knows how to make...

Our good friend Pete Phillips grandfather was the first person ever to record The Quarrymen who of course became The Beatles, this is an intriguing story about those early recordings.

In 1977, legendary Liverpool DJ Bob Wooler and Alan Williams (the man who took the Beatles to Hamburg in 1960) were involved in organising the first Liverpool Beatles Convention. It took place in October of 1977 (on the weekend of John Lennon’s birthday) at Mr Pickwick’s nightclub in Salter Street, which has since been demolished and is now the site of Liverpool Bus Station. Since the early 1980s the Liverpool Beatles Convention has happened annually and now....(Continues Here: link)

I woke up the next morning, and I decided to freshen up before breakfast. When I looked up at the bathroom mirror, I saw John Lennon staring back at me. I blinked a few times to make sure I was seeing clearly. Sure enough, I was seeing it. I fell to the floor and nearly fainted. I heard a knock on the door. Howard asked, "Hazel, is everything okay in there?" I said, "Everything's fine." He asked, "Are you sure?" I said, "Yeah, I'm coming out now." After a day of studying, Howard said, "You have been really quiet all day. Is something troubling you, love?" I said, "I'm not really troubled. I'm just not sure what's happening to me." He asked, "What do you mean?" I said, "When I met Paul yesterday, he told me I reminded him of John. When I looked in the mirror this morning, I saw John in the mirror." Howard said, "Maybe you were John in a past life." I laughed. I said, "Reincarnation is fake. Once you die, you die. You don't come back." He said, "Trust me. Reincarnation is real. A year after my grandfather died, I saw a bird on the roof. I mentioned him, and the bird came and sat on my shoulder." I said, "That's got to be coincidence." Howard said, "I don't think so.

The following is a list of characters from a new Beatles cartoon show that popped out of my head. In case you don't know, the name of the cartoon is "Adventures in Liverpool", and it will be a British family show. This show will be fictional, just like the first cartoon. It will portray the band as 4 typical, tea-loving englishmen with unique personalities and who have known each other since childhood. They will go on epic adventures around their hometown of Liverpool and other parts of the UK. They will also deal with everyday challenges and problems, and will help each other to overcome them, and along the way, learn life and moral lessons.

The main characters:

John Lennon - John is the leader and the most serious and level-headed member of the band. Though he can be sarcastic and witty at times, he likes to get things organized and done. He may also get frustrated when things don't go right or when there is disagreement over something. But deep down, he is humble, loyal, dependable, honest, patient, and cares about his friends and is always ready to help them whenever they need him. His favorite hobby is painting. He is also the main driver of the...
