The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania", but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era's sociocultural revolutions. more »

Just let me hear some of that rock and roll music 
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music 
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

I've got no kick against modern jazz
 Unless they try to play it too darn fast
And change the beauty of the melody  Until they sound just like a symphony 

That's why I go for that that rock and roll music 
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music 
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks 
So she can hear my man a'wail a sax
I must admit they have a rockin' band
Man, they were goin' like a hurricane 

That's why I go for that that rock and roll music 
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music 
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

Way down South they gave a jubilee 
The jokey folks they had a jamboree 
They're drinkin' home brew from a water cup
The folks dancin' got all shook up

And started playin' that that rock and roll music 
Any old way you choose it
I'm home - leave it to me (leave it to me)
I'm home - leave it to me (leave it to me now that you've seen)
I'm home - leave it to me (leave it to me)
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music 
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

Don't care to hear 'em play a tango 
I'm in the mood to gear a mambo 
It's way to early for a congo 
So keep a rockin' that piano 
So I can gear some of that

Rock and roll music 
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music 
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me
