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 »

It was twenty years ago today, 
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play, 
They've been going in and out of style 
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile. 

So may I introduce to you 
The act you've known for all these years 
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. 

We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 
We hope you will enjoy the show, 
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 
Sit back and let the evening go. 

Sgt. Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely, 
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 
It's wonderful to be here 
It's certainly a thrill 
You're such a lovely audience 
We'd like to take you home with us 
We'd love to take you home 

I don't really like to stop the show 
But I thought that you might like to know 
That the singer's going to sing a song 
And he wants you all to sing along 

So let me introduce to you 
The one and only Billy Shears 
And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
