Love Is All You Need Beatles




The Beatles.
Love Is All You Need - Beatles.

Adding this not because it's any good but because i gave it one listen and passed on by. I don't like this song even though it's about love.

The Beatles Helter Skelter



The Beatles - Helter Skelter

This is the short version. It's pretty cool. Live.




The Beatles - Helter Skelter longer version

This version is 8:50 long. I think it's been looped or something. I'm going to listen to this more. Shame it got attached to racism and murder by one man. It's bigger than that though.

All You Need Is Love. The Beatles.



The Beetles - All You Need Is Love.

Adding this to Music 2.  Not that I've listened to it much.

As long as you have love perhaps.

Love Love Love.

The Beatles - Yellow Submarine



I always got a laugh with the way they timed the submarine to move on this video to the chorus.

The Beatles - I Am The Walrus



Got a few days out of the 3 Beatles songs posted here and still listening.

The Beatles - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.



"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is a song written primarily by John Lennon and credited to Lennon/McCartney, for The Beatles' 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Lennon's son, Julian, inspired the song with a nursery school drawing he called "Lucy — in the sky with diamonds". Shortly after the song's release, speculation arose that the first letter of each of the title's nouns intentionally spelled LSD. Although Lennon denied this, the BBC banned the song.


Title and lyrics

Julian's drawing

Lennon's inspiration for the song came when his son, Julian, showed him a nursery school drawing he called "Lucy - in the sky with diamonds", depicting his classmate, Lucy O'Donnell. Julian said, "I don't know why I called it that or why it stood out from all my other drawings, but I obviously had an affection for Lucy at that age. I used to show dad everything I'd built or painted at school, and this one sparked off the idea..."Lucy Vodden née O'Donnell, in a BBC radio interview in 2007, said, "I remember Julian and I both doing pictures on a double-sided easel, throwing paint at each other, much to the horror of the classroom attendant... Julian had painted a picture and on that particular day his father turned up with the chauffeur to pick him up from school." Vodden died of the immune system disease lupus in 2009. Lennon was surprised at the idea that the song title was a hidden reference to LSD.[3]

It was purely unconscious that it came out to be LSD. Until someone pointed it out, I never even thought of it. I mean, who would ever bother to look at initials of a title? It's not an acid song. The imagery was Alice in the boat.
