Saturday Night Music: The Beatles

Lots of sad things here but still....

I've been a Beatle fan since day one. Always glad to hear a song and see a video of the boys. Thanks.

It was the group of our lifetime, I think. And here are the women of their youth.

Not so much sad as innocent of what the future would bring. Well, as Roger Ebert once observed, without the innocence of our ignorance of the future, our lives would be impossible.

Patti - Oh, I've always loved this song and I think Deb's right that it shows an innocence of what the future would bring.

When that song came out I thought the Fabs were so much older and wiser than I. I look at that video now and think they were scarcely more than children.

That was the most amazing thing. I think Paul was under 20 when their first hit came out.

Yes, first hit in England he was under 20 and George was even younger.

I can still remember exactly where and when I was when I first heard them - a friend bought MEET THE BEATLES during Christmas vacation of 1963 and we played it in a second friend's house.

And of course we went to see them the first (7 pm) show at Carnegie Hall that February 12, a Wednesday, paying $3 a ticket to sit upstairs and have them drowned out almost completely by girls screaming. The concert was 35 minutes and the set was probably about like this (from Washington the day before):

Roll Over Beethoven
From Me to You
I Saw Her Standing There
This Boy
All My Loving
I Wanna Be Your Man
Please Please Me
Till There Was You
She Loves You
I Want to Hold Your Hand
Twist and Shout
Long Tall Sally

I was just 15.
