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 »

Wilson, Wilson Wilson, Wilson Wilson

Once upon a time there was a mountain That rose out of a vast green forest
And in the forest there were birds And lakes and rocks and trees and rivers 
The forest was also inhabited By a small group of people called the lizards The lizards were a simple people
And they had lived in the forest undisturbed
For thousands of years in utter peace and tranquility 
Once a year when spring came
And the first blossoms began to show
The lizards would gather at the base of the mountain To give thanks for all that they had

They thanked the birds And they thanked the lakes and they thanked the rocks And the trees and the rivers But most importantly, they thanked Icculus
 Icculus lived at the top of the mountain Or at least everyone thought so
For no one had actually ever seen him

But they knew he existed Because they had the Helping Friendly Book Icculus had given the Helping Friendly Book
To the Lizards thousands of years earlier as a gift

It contained all of the knowledge Inherent in the universe And had enabled the Lizards To exist in harmony with nature for years 
And so they lived Until one day a traveler arrived in Gamehendge His name was Wilson And he quickly became intrigued By the Lizards way of life

He asked if he could stay on
And live in the forest And the Lizards, who had never seen an outsider Were happy to oblige  Wilson lived with the Lizards for a few years Studying the ways of the Helping Friendly Book
And all was well
 Until one morning when they awoke and the book was gone Wilson explained that he had hidden the book Knowing that the Lizards had become Dependent on it for survival 
He declared himself king
And enslaved the innocent people of Gamehendge He cut down the trees and built a city Which he called Prussia

And in the center of the city
He built a castle And locked in the highest tower of the castle
