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 »

I read the news today, oh boy
 About a lucky man who made the grade 
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh 

I saw the photograph 
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed 
A crowd of people stood and stared 
They'd seen his face before  Nobody was really sure
If he was from the House of Lords 

I saw a film today, oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
 Having read the book
I'd love to turn you on

Woke up, fell out of bed
 Dragged a comb across my head
 Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late
 Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
 Found my way upstairs and had a smoke  Somebody spoke and I went into a dream 

I read the news today, oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire 
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I'd love to turn you on

Written by: John Lennon, Paul McCartney
