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 »

Long distance information
Give me Memphis, Tennessee 
Try to find the party  Trying to get in touch with me
She would not leave her number 
But I know who placed the call
'cause my uncle took the message 
And he wrote it on the wall

Help me, information 
Get in touch with my Marie 
She's the only one who'd phone me here
From Memphis, Tennessee 
Her home is on the south side
Just beyond the ridge 
Just a half a mile
From the Mississippi Bridge

Help me, information 
More than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her
And all the fun we had
We were pulled apart
 Because her mom would not agree 
Help me get in touch with her
In Memphis, Tennessee 

The last time I saw Marie 
She was waving me goodbye 
With hurry homedrops on her cheek 
That trickled from her eyes
 Marie is only six years old
 Information please
Help me get in touch with her
In Memphis, Tennessee.
