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.
