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 »

In Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs 
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say hello 

On the corner is a banker with a motorcar 
The little children laugh at him behind his back
And the banker never wears a mack
In the pouring rain, very strange 

 Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
 There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back

In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass 
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen 
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
It's a clean machine

 Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back

 Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout 
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And tho' she feels as if she's in a play
She is anyway 

In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
And then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain, very strange 

 Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
 There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back
 Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
 There beneath the blue suburban skies
 Penny Lane
