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 thought of this! What would happen to him if his mates didn't come?
Paul didn't answer his question. There was no need to.

The next day, George went to Abbey Road to do some recording. At the doorway, he stopped in surprise. Ringo and John were both there, too. They had obviously both just arrived, because they were still both staring at each other awkwardly, knowing that once they started speaking to each other, they would fight. Now they both turned and stared at George, too.

John, George, and Ringo, of course, couldn't have ignored Paul's disappearance even if they'd wanted to. All day long, the rumours flowed. Everybody knew Paul was missing, and everybody had their theories - some more believable than others - but no one really seemed to know where he'd gone.
All this would have suited Paul just fine. His first day in the forest was ending, and he was sure he was well hidden enough that no one could find him before his mates came looking. It was sheltered in the trees, but there was still a lot of powder on the ground. As night fell and Paul wandered along, looking for a place to sleep, it was hard for him to see exactly where he was going. As Paul put his foot down in front of him, he couldn't see that the ground sloped away ahead of him. Too late, he realised there was nothing there supporting his weight, and he lost his balance and tumbled down a steep incline, brushing against trees and bracken poking out of the snow. He was going too fast to stop his descent, and then, just as he was nearing the end of the incline, his foot caught in a tree root protruding from the ground. His leg stopped moving, but the rest of him fell forward...

Paul knew that he couldn't hide anywhere where there were people around. If anyone saw him, the word would be out and everybody would know where he was. And his mates wouldn't get worried and come looking for him. Paul was going for somewhere more deserted - an area of forest not too far from his place. The still-falling snow erased his footprints as soon as he made them. The night was very cold, colder than Paul had expected. He had packed only a little food for his stay. But Paul pressed on. He couldn't give up and go back to bed. He had made up his mind, and he was going to see his plan through.
Up ahead, Paul could see the dim outlines of the trees. At least it would be sheltered there. He pressed ahead, to where he would be making his home for the next few days. Or however long it took for his mates to come and find him.

It was nearly ten o'clock the next morning, and the atmosphere in Abbey Road Studios was tense, as usual. Ringo kept getting up and sitting down again, and George sat in a corner and frowned. John was on top of the amplifiers entwined with Yoko, and neither of them seemed to notice that there was anyone else in the room. No...

It was late at night, but Paul couldn't sleep. That day's recording session hadn't gone very well, just like all the others recently. Paul had just spent the last week screaming his lungs out practicing to record his new song Oh! Darling, and that was the only reason he hadn't joined in all the fighting today, because his voice was so strained he could barely talk. John, George, and Ringo had still managed to carry on fighting without him, and Paul dreaded the day when one of them would decide that the Beatles shouldn't be together anymore.
That couldn't happen. The Beatles were Paul's life. He loved being a Beatle, and he knew that, at least up until recently, his mates had, too. What would he do without the Beatles?
He'd been trying to put it off for almost two years now, taking over the leadership of the band when John stopped, making sure the others got the albums recorded on time, scared that if he didn't push, his mates would just decide that there was no need to record together anymore at all. Paul knew that people were saying that he was turning into a controlling tyrant who wanted to lead the Beatles himself because he couldn't stand letting anyone else...

A few days later, John and Paul were interviewed about that night. Paul was asked, "Is it true that you took a bullet for John?" Paul said, "It's true, yeah." John was asked about the incident. He said, "Well, it started when I was signing autographs. I had no idea that guy intended to kill me. He was a little odd, but I didn't think much about it. So, I'm talking with Paul and Yoko, and all of the sudden, the guy shouts my name and prepares to shoot me. Paul was determined that I wasn't going to be killed on his watch, and the next thing I know, we're on the ground." Paul was then asked how badly he was hurt. He said, "The bullet didn't go in, really. It left a scratch." John admitted that he was relieved it wasn't much worse. He then said, "But I'll leave it with that. I don't want to get all mushy." Paul said, "I knew that was coming." The interviewer said, "You've known John a long time, haven't you?" Paul said, "Yeah, I really know John well." John jokingly said, "No, you don't!" They laughed. They were then asked the BIG question. "Are the Beatles ever going to get back together?" John said, "I don't know. I'll have to think about it." Despite this, many fans still speculated...

The next night, John was signing autographs. One person in the crowd was Mark David Chapman. He thanked John and left. Little did John know, Chapman had a sinister plan, to kill him. After signing autographs, he met up with Paul and Yoko. The three of them were talking, Mark David Chapman lurked in the shadows. He came out of the shadows and shouted, "Mr. Lennon!" He had a gun. John said, "I had a feeling this would happen sooner or later." Acting quickly, Paul cried, "No, not on MY watch!" He pushed John out of the way. As the two fell to the ground, shots rang out. Witnesses were horrified. Nobody could react at first. Then, the witnesses screamed at Chapman, and he ran away. When all was quiet, John felt around for his glasses. Paul handed them to him and asked, "Are you all right?" John said, "Yeah, but are you all right?" Paul said, "I think so, yeah." Paul tried to get up, but he felt a sharp pain. "Paul," said John. "What's wrong?" Paul said, "I think I've been shot." John called for help, and Paul was rushed to the hospital. As they were waiting, John told Yoko, "I hope he'll be all right. I owe him one." The doctor came out and said, "He'll be just fine. The bullet didn't...

It was 1980. It had been a while since the Beatles had broken up. John had just recently released his new album, Double Fantasy. He had just finished breakfast, and he heard the phone ring. He answered it. He heard a voice saying, "Hello, John. Is that you?" John said, "Yes, it's me. Who is this?" The person on the other line replied, "It's me, Paul." John said, "Okay, Paul. What do you want?" Paul said, "It's been a while since we've seen each other. I'm going to be in New York tomorrow, and I thought I'd like to see you." John said, "This is a trick. I know it is." Paul said, "No, John. It's not a trick. I mean it. What do you say?" John said, "Paul, it's not 1957 anymore." Paul said, "I'm aware of that. Look, I'm sorry if I said or did something to upset you. Will you at least think about it?" John said, "All right. Where do you want to meet?" Paul said, "So, you'll meet with me." John said, "Just answer the question before I change my mind." Paul said, "How about New York Central Park at 3:00?" John said, "Okay. That works for me." The next day, John was waiting, unsure of Paul's motive. Paul walked up to John and said, "Hi, John. How have you been?" John said, "I've been okay....

It was a lovely summers eve as yesterday I sat sitting on a cornflake, in case you didn't realise, it so happened that I was waiting for the van to come, as I sat sitting, I saw the most peculiar thing, a girl went by, (no Clare, I'm not referring to you), you may well ask yourself 'hmm, what's so peculiar about a girl going by?', well the peculiarity of the situation was not so much the fact that she was a girl, after all, had she been a boy, then the topic of gender equality would be answered forever (what could be more equal than a female boy), no this was not at all what I found so peculiar and so interesting, it was indeed the fact that her eyes appeared to be kaleidoscopes.
Anyhow, putting this unpleasantness behind me, the van rolled up, getting in I laid back and dreamt, it had after all been quite a hard days night, if you can understand that at all, so I had decided to do a little day tripping, and go to a lovely little place I know with marmalade trees and marshmallow skies As the van pulled up so to i awoke, and getting out, lo and behold, discovered the same girl with the same caleidascope eyes, this time how ever, what was truly amazing was the fact that a young...

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"
