Remembering The Beatles

Sixty years ago today, on February 25, 1963, The Beatles released their first single, Please Please me in the United States. Many have come after them, but few have had the influence of the Beatles. Their music still has a sway and power over people of all ages.

I can’t think of a better way to remember them or to celebrate the day.

  1. Neither can I, Brian. Today also happens to be George Harrison’s birthday so your post is timely indeed!
    I am a Beatlemaniac, simple as that. One of the most exhilarating experiences in my life was seeing them perform at Shea Stadium in NY in 1965. It’s a memory I will never forget.
    As Brian Epstein said in 1965, “They are the greatest band on the planet. No band before or after will shape the world as they have. In 50 years people of all ages will be listening to the Beatles music. It will live on for decades to come.” 🍏

  2. Wow, I remember these songs so well from when I was very young! I cherish the memories I have of those years. That Abbey Road photo is so iconic, I would love to have a tour of Abbey Road Studios, Brian. Thanks for the memories!

  3. I’ve always liked The Beatles. I was very young when they first started out, but I now never tire of their music. Later on, I had copies of most of their albums, including what were known as the red, the blue and the white album, the latter being the most desired at that time. Perhaps, foolishly, I sold the lot last year for £25. I no longer had a record deck anyway, so hanging on to them seemed a bit pointless, and neither of my children were interested. Thanks for sharing this post, Brian, and for the reminders of their music. I think, Let It Be will always be my favourite.

  4. The Beatles have always been a bit of a conundrum for me, Brian. When I was young I had an Uncle who wasn’t a great fan of the Beatles. He was more into bands like The Kinks, The Who, and The Troggs, and I followed that musical route. It wasn’t until about five years ago when I started to listen to the Beatles I began to realise the brilliance of their music and lyrics. The collection of songs on their, ‘Blue Album, takes some beating.
