I tried their official site.

I tried their official site but they only play snippits of one or two songs for each album.  They're not on Napster.  They're not on Yahoo!  They're not on iTunes.  They don't want their music to be heard anymore.

You should all take cautious heed.  Apple Corp, the Beatles's record studio, has filed a lawsuit with Apple Computer because iTunes uses an apple in its logo.  Apple is the trademark of Apple Corp, the music recording studio.

The Beatles do not want their music heard online.  They don't want people using apples in their logos, and they probably don't want people posting copyrighted images of the Beatles online without their express written consent of all the Beatles, their heirs, or estates.

You folks may like the Beatles, but The Beatles don't like you.

is that so

"the Beatles don' t like you"  Since half of the Beatles are dead, that seems to be
                                                  quite a far fetched notion.  Besides, if I am not
                                                  mistaken, control over Beatles musicology is owned by
                                                  none other than the youngest of the Jackson family of
                                                  singers, a notorious child-abuser and former spouse of
                                                  Elvis' daughter.

My point exactly.

control over Beatles musicology is owned by  none other than the youngest of the Jackson family of singers, a notorious child-abuser



The Beatles sold off control to their music decades ago, and the songs are owned by a business that has no fans.  Just dollars and cents.

Even King Oliver, whose royalties amounted to pennies each year after expenses, wanted his music to be enjoyed.  The Beatles made no such stipulation when they sold off their recordings.  They could not imagine an Internet, and so they could not imagine that the owners of their music would refuse to distribute their songs in a manner that their fans expect.

we know we love the Beatles, and also we know they love us too.

because as a song of theirs says:   Power to the People!

do you not see? power to the people!

if i'm a member of the people, then power to me too.

it's not the Beatles who want not us listen to their music,
but the company that want gain big money want not us listen to their music online!
for if we can easily find them online how can they sell their albums and how can they make money?

and earn money is not the main purpose of making music, for Lennon had said,
"Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world..."
      ----------IMAGINE, Lennon

how can you imagine such a person like he, want to forbidden people to listen his music?!

if someone who want to do this, that'd be Paul McCartney, but totally not John.


for J. Lennon also said in his lyrics,

"And so this is Xmas (war is over)
For weak and for strong (if you want it)
For rich and the poor ones (war is over)
The world is so wrong (if you want it)
And so happy Xmas (war is over)
For black and for white (if you want it)
For yellow and red ones (war is over)
Let's stop all the fight (now)"
                               -----Happy Xmas

how can you say that such a good guy want to fight with you~?

and how can you describe him as if he is an enemy of people rather than a real friend?
still in his lyrics, he sung as the below,
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on
       -------Power to the people


though you deny him greatly, but he'd like to forgive you, for he know you don't know what you are saying.

maybe you'll say something else against him sometimes, but he will forgive you forever!

because he knows well-------
                         "All Your Need Is Love".

OK I like The Beatles.

I just don't like that the owners of The Beatles songs are stingy with their music online.

Beatles hit on a eukulele

Here's a link to a interpretation of the Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"  ON A EUKULELE!

When I first saw it, I thought it was the perfect example of what people have to endure because the Beatles can't be found on iTunes or Napster.  

Guitar Gently Weeps is a heavy, dramatic, serious Beatles tune, and the eukulele is a light, soft, fun instrument.  However, when I saw the video, I was amazed.  Jake Shimabukuro absolutely knocks it out of the park.

matt is a beatle man?  

what state do they mention in this one matt?


Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn’t last.
Jojo left his home in tucson, arizona
For some california grass.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back jojo. go home
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back jo.

Sweet loretta martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she’s got it coming
But she gets it while she can
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back loretta. go home
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back loretta
Your mother’s waiting for you
Wearing her high-heel shoes
And her low-neck sweater
Get on home loretta
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
