Due to my dad’s big impact on my life, at 26, I am such a Beatle fan. I believe that they are indeed legends – and they have a huge contribution to our music industry, to the world, and to each and everyone of us. Although I know there are like a hundred of them, I listed down 10 of my favorite Beatles Classics.
Imagine would probably be one of the songs which has the best and mind blowing lyrics. Only a genius like John Lennon can write such a masterpiece.
2. Let It Be
If only I could play the piano, I would have probably mastered this song. One of my favorites. Classic indeed.
3. Here, There and Everywhere
I read that this was John Lennon’s favorite. I used to think this would be my wedding song after watching Phoebe Buffay of then hit TV Series Friends walk down the aisle to this Beatles’ classic, however, my boyfriend is not a Beatle fan.
4. The Long and Winding Road
Paul McCartney was inpspired to write this song because of then growing tension among The Beatles. I believe that sometimes, the best comes out of us during the saddest and most difficult times of our lives.
5. Strawberry Fields Forever
I used to sing this song when I was a kiddo – and my classmates then had no idea about this song.
6. All You Need is Love
I totally agree – all we need is love. This is such a happy song. The Beatles had written this song because they wanted to give the world a message – and since this song is non-complex, it will never be misinterpreted.
7. Here comes the sun
One of my dearest friends used this song for their wedding’s same day edit. I listen to this song when I am in a bad day. Very uplifting.
8. For No One
I am not so sure if a lot of people are familiar with this song. This song is somehow underated, but I still love it. I love the lyrics – its just so heartbreaking.
I know.. this is not a Beatles song, but I am still including it in this list. Any woman would probably be in tears with this song. Lucky Yoko!
10. Hey Jude
I believe that to understand a song’s lyrics, you must know first what had inspired the writer to create the masterpiece. I normally listen to this song when I am in a bad situation, because I feel that somehow, someone out there cares for me. Ever wonder who Jude is? Originally this was supposed to be, “Hey Jules” because Paul McCartney had written this song for John Lennon’s son Julian – after the separation of John Lennon to then wife Cynthia.
I know there are a lot more Beatles hits that are worth blogging – I will just make a part two of this entry next time 🙂
