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 »

Picture yourself in a boat on a river 
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
 Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly 
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

 Cellophane flowers of yellow and green  Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Ah

 Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain  Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
 Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers 
That grow so incredibly high

 Newspaper taxis appear on the shore  Waiting to take you away
 Climb in the back with your head in the clouds 
And you're gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Ah

 Picture yourself on a train in a station 
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties
 Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile 
The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Ah
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Ah
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds 
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
