I grew up listening to The Beatles and for these past couple of weeks I've been listening to 'Let it be' a lot, so I was nicely surprised to find out that 39 years ago, the final Beatles studio album was released. And it's still genius.. genius I said!



So stop working for four minutes and enjoy:

So did I! But I hadn't given them much time lately. This is great for a Friday night, just before turning off the computer.

As I am still growing up (that's a life's constant, isnt' it?) I put a Beatles record on at least once a week to clean up my ears from modern rubbishicon_smile.gif

Nice one Claudia!

A masterpiece May 9, 2009

Well, I guess I'll tell you the truth, but please don't kill meicon_biggrin.gif

I'm not a huge Beatles fan.. or, at least, I'm not really into their first recordings BUT I also think that in their latter production they really gave "something more" to their music turning into Giants.

"Let it be" might not be their best album ever - this is not the issue and I don't want to put up a fighticon_biggrin.gif - but it's a true masterpiece to me, its completeness both in music and lyrics is amazing.

Here's the link to one of my favorites, enjoy iticon_smile.gifhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COMsKPeWAsw

I grew up listening to The Beatles too. When I was learning English, I learned so many phrasal verbs and idioms through their songs. My first guitar lessons were based on The Beatles songs.

What a great idea . THANK YOU May 10, 2009

THAT WAS JUST great... Some of the happiest times of my life were when London was vibrating to Hey Jude....my favourite..... But "Revolution".... "Help"... Talk about a flashback on your life.. wow! I wont say anymore!

Fabulous Idea...I really enjoyed it. Thank You.

Let it be...let it be..there will be an answer...let it be......

Someone here is asking me if I need to get my feet back on the ground !!

Have a great week

Kind regards

J.
