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 »

Ah look at all the lonely people
Ah look at all the lonely people

 Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice
In the church where a wedding has been
 Lives in a dream  Waits at the window, wearing the face
That she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for

All the lonely people
 Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
 Where do they all belong?

 Father McKenzie, writing the words 
Of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near
Look at him working, darning his socks 
In the night when there's nobody there
What does he care

All the lonely people
 Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
 Where do they all belong?

Ah look at all the lonely people
Ah look at all the lonely people

 Eleanor Rigby, died in the church 
And was buried along with her name
 Nobody came
 Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt
From his hands as he walks from the grave 
No one was saved 

All the lonely people
 Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
 Where do they all belong?
