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 once had a girl
Or should I say she once had me
She showed me her room
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?

She asked me to stay
And she told me to sit anywhere 
So I looked around
And I noticed there wasn't a chair 

I sat on a rug biding my time
 Drinking her wine
We talked until two and then she said
"It's time for bed"

She told me she worked 
In the morning and started to laugh 
I told her I didn't
And crawled off to sleep in the bath

And when I awoke I was alone 
This bird had flown 
So I lit a fire
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?
