From a young age, I had always dreamed of going to England, especially after learning over half of my favorite bands originated there, including the Beatles. Being from a rural area in the United States, I never thought I would be lucky enough to afford such a trip. One day, it happened. Because I made all A's during the second semester of college, I was able to go. My parents managed to raise enough money for my trip. I was a bit nervous, since I had never been out of the United States before, but I was also excited. Little did I know, I would discover something that I didn't know about myself. It happened with a chance encounter with former Beatle, Paul McCartney. It had been a long day. I was taking a train back to the location where I was supposed to meet a friend. I was exhausted, and I fell asleep. When I woke up, I couldn't believe who was sitting near me. I thought, "This man looks like Paul McCartney. No, wait, it IS Paul." I thought about talking to him, but I couldn't think of anything to say. I had never been in the presence of anyone famous until then. We happened to be getting off at the same stop. I heard Paul say to his companion, "Remember the time when the doors...

John looked up at George, half-wondering if he'd misheard him in his sleepy state. "You want what?" he said. "You're daft."
"Please?" George smiled eagerly; it was one of those rare times when he really looked like the youngest. "I've never been to the future before!"
"You don't want to go to the future," John reminded him. "I've told you." He pulled the blankets over his head again and closed his eyes, wanting to go back to sleep. A second later, George pulled them off again.
John blinked at George in an annoyed, won't-you-ever-let-me-go-back-to-sleep kind of way.
"Why don't you go yourself?"
"I can't," George said, as though it was obvious. "It's your tribute what took you there. I haven't got one."
John wondered if that upset George at all. If it did, George didn't let on, but John almost thought it might.
"Come on," George said. "Won't Paul want to see you again? And Ringo - you didn't see him at all last time."
"I can see them here, George," John reminded him. "They're right in the next room - sleeping," he added pointedly. Then, "And why aren't you bothering them about this?"

John told his mates everything.
It wasn't something he would ever have told anyone else, for fear that they would laugh at him. He wasn't even sure his mates wouldn't. But Paul, George, and Ringo saw how upset John was, and they knew that whatever he told them now was to be taken seriously. They weren't sure if they should believe he'd gone to the future, but then - they knew John wasn't joking. He, at least, believed he'd been to the future, and - why not? He had gone missing for six hours without a trace. He had to be somewhere. Why not the future?
Besides, no Beatle could ever have imagined a future as terrible as this one sounded when John told them about it.
"So - you mean we've got less than ten years before we break up, and then you die, and then George dies, too?" Ringo's blue eyes got big and sad. He, certainly, would never, ever have imagined the Beatles' future that way.
John nodded. "Yes - I get shot at, in fact... might have guessed it..."

For a moment, John just stared at Paul. Then he laughed.
"Get off, Paul. If it's 2014, how come we're not all livin' on the moon or something?"
Paul gave a small smile, too, at that. "It didn't work out that way."
John couldn't believe this. Paul was putting him on, he had to be. How could he have fallen down in one year and woken up fifty years later? And yet - he remembered the date on the newspaper, and the strange world outside, and he couldn't think of a better explanation.
"They must have them time machines at least," he offered, "seeing as you're so calm about me appearing here right out of nineteen sixty-four."
"We don't," said Paul. "But I've got to believe you're here, and if I can believe that, I can believe anything did it."
John frowned. "Yeah, what were you on about before, anyway, Paul? Don't we still see each other every day?"
Paul shook his head as if to brush off some unpleasant thought. "No." He paused, as though hoping he wouldn't have to elaborate, then, when John kept looking at him, he added, "Of course we don't, John; you've been dead for thirty-three years now!" He looked down at the table, deliberately...

John made his way through the crowded streets of New York. With no way of knowing where his mates could have gotten to, there was nothing to be done except wander around until he found them. They probably weren't still in Central Park by this time - not if John had really been knocked out for hours.
There was something funny about that. If it weren't for the change in daylight, he could've sworn that he had only been knocked out for less than a second. He didn't feel like he had been lying there for hours. And either way, why had his mates wandered off?
That wasn't the only strange thing John noticed as he walked along, though at first he couldn't put his finger on what was wrong. Maybe it was the absence of any screaming fans. Of course, the Beatles were new in America, and maybe the fans just didn't know him yet, although the crowd at the airport certainly had.
But that wasn't the only thing wrong. There were other things, lots of little things. The cars were the wrong shape - shorter and boxier, and many more of them than he was used to - but though the streets were packed with them, their engines were eerily quiet. The people were dressed indefinably...

John got to his feet.
The thing he had been lying on, from what he could see, was shaped like a black-and-white sunflower. Though he had trouble telling for sure at this distance, it looked as though it had the word "Imagine" written on. Nice - though John couldn't think why this word in particular would be chosen for his tribute. Or why it wouldn't look more bright and cheerful. And why a tribute to him? He hadn't realized that the Americans had even known about the Beatles long enough to make a tribute to him. And why only him? Why hadn't they just made one for all the Beatles? But none of this really bothered John at the moment. He turned to the crowd of people, plenty of whom were still watching him indignantly, and said, "Is this a new thing, then, none of us are good enough to lie on our own tributes?" He smiled cheerfully, like he always did at times like these.
The people were not appeased, nor did they seem to really understand what John meant. John was used to that, of course, but what one man said next confused him right back. "You young people, no respect for the past. John Lennon was a great man, and you go lying on his tribute like you own the...

February 7, 1964.

The Beatles were riding down the streets of New York, freshly arrived from the airport. Just months ago, this country hadn't even known they existed, and now, they'd been greeted by multitudes of screaming fans, all so happy and excited to see the boys, and there was the usual chasing. Unlike their last stop in France, the American fans made the Beatles feel right at home.
Neil Aspinall and Mal Evans were along to handle the Beatles' instruments and drive their car respectively. As they passed Central Park, Mal said, "Why don't you boys go and have fun for a bit? We can check into the hotel."
The Beatles didn't need telling twice. Without even waiting for Mal to stop the van, they threw open the doors with happy cries of "Yeah!" and ran off into the twilight, laughing like schoolboys.
Central Park offered many opportunities for fun among all the monuments. The Beatles ran round and chased each other. "Hide-and-seek!" they suggested to each other joyfully. George turned away and began to count. John, Paul and Ringo ran off to find places to hide.

My number one Beatles fan was there when the Beatles came to America; she watched them on Ed Sullivan and told me stories all about it, the excitement she felt that night, the songs. Oh, yes she was there, she always tell me completely memorized.
My number one Beatles fan passed on her 45’ Beatles singles to me which is where I learned why she loved them in the first place. She'd even sing along to the music. She even told about owning every Beatles trading card and record before losing them all in a flood but yet she remembered every song and picture, including her favorite Beatle, George Harrison's photo with that sexy stare.
My number one Beatles fan showed me ‘A hard day’s night’ when I was seven years old and told me all about her first experience seeing it when she was my age.
My number one Beatles fan was my mom and she told me all kinds of memories that she had with the Beatles. Everything from driving her parents’ crazy by playing their first record over and over until finally they bought her their second album to even that awful night in nineteen-eighty when John Lennon died and how heartbroken she was.

Hello, everyone! RocknRollSoul60 here, and I am writing about my top ten Beatles songs and why I love them. Anyway, I guess I'll get started.

1. "Good Day Sunshine"
This song is my favourite, because it's just beautiful. I love the lyrics. "I'm in love, and it's a sunny day." This song always cheers me up when I'm sad. Peaceandlove67 actually sang this song to me one day when I was sad, and I felt better.

2. "Do You Want to Know a Secret?"
I've always been attracted to good love songs. It makes me think of maybe someday finding a special someone. When I do, I would sing that song to her. Hopefully, she will like my singing voice.

3. "I Am the Walrus"
I really like this song. It just makes me laugh. I laughed the first time I heard it. "Boy, you've been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down." That lyric makes me laugh every time. By the time the song ends, I'm still laughing. Once, I was actually crying, because I was laughing so hard. My mother actually asked if I was all right. I said, "The Beatles killed me with laughter. I couldn't be any better than that."

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 that, now that three Beatles were together, soon Paul would come back and they would have the Fab Four again.
At first the three Beatles had been worried, when they first saw Paul's deserted house, that maybe someone had kidnapped him. But everyone seemed delighted with the idea that Paul would be coming back and the Beatles playing for them again. Obviously no one had had anything to do with Paul's disappearance.

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.”

Well Honestly we don't have to do this I just thought it would be very interesting to try to get more fans in the beatles club than in the justin bieber club. But if not that many people have joined this club maybe it's not possible. Wait... what am I saying. Anyways well if anyone would like to try to do this you could send me a message by clicking on my name a clicking send message.
