Enter the era of the Beatles, one of the world’s best musical groups and note the quotes in Beatle music as it relates to the world.
The Beatles Yesterday
“For those of you in the cheap seats I’d like ya to clap your hands to this one; the rest of you can just rattle your jewelry!” John Lennon again, was a man of interesting intuition, he was funny, a realist, his view of the world was as sharp as any microscope and he filled it with the penicillin of hope. Times were changing and the world was young. People were struggling in a different way financially. Money was not flowing but people grew some of their food. People were homeless but there was more support for them on a more personal level. History was moving and the Baby Boom Generation was growing up in ways they could not imagine.
Beatles music reflected the emotions of the world and offered love and hope as the solution. “It’s been a hard day’s night and I’ve been working like a dog.” Tell’s of a difficult job made better by the love and care of someone waiting home for them. The artist themselves radiated a charisma of hope, youth and energy. Their music was deep thinking and rang true for a majority of the World.
The Beatles captured the attention of a world changing generation. No longer were things going to remain the same. The music spoke of change, the world rallied around the music, listened and change began to evolve. The quotes spoke of unity for the world as a whole.
There is still struggle and discord, but youth from all over the world strive to understand the language of each other. If language as it exist does not bring understanding they create one that the least endowed can understand. They realize peace must be in place in order to participate in the growth of the world. Although there is chaos and music lyrics are merely words, these words have helped a whole generation evolve for the better. The Beatles and Robert Frost knew the power of words.
With the Beatles the World found a way to join hands. This was a group that crossed barriers of finance, gender and color. Their words rang clear to all backgrounds. “Yesterday all my troubles seem so far away, I need a place to hide away. Oh, I believe in yesterday.” Time moves on, people wish for what was, and fear what will be. They are always sure of yesterday, but never of tomorrow.
The name the Beatles was in recognition of a group they enjoyed, Buddy Holly and the Crickets. Developing from a town where people worked hard and dedicated themselves to whatever task they had at hand the Beatles brought their music of a lifestyle to the World. The Liverpool upbringing was that of most, a group of boys brought up by a community. They expected the community to hear them perform, they wrote and performed music about the world as a community and the World became a community and heard them play.
Ringo Starr, “So this is America. They must be out of their minds.” Clearly he must have been surprised at his own success. A new country for them and a new group of fans, like most people overwhelmed with success the reality is a shock and has to settle in. Ringo was the drummer, hair and drum sticks waving as he hit the drums for his band. The Beatles were World famous, but the same everyday job of getting through the day is bestowed on all.
John Lennon was a singer and writer and a man who put his money and time where his music was. He sang of peace and worked towards that end. The Beatles came along during a time of turmoil. Their music was vibrant like the times, moody sometimes but filled with meaning. Quotes from the music of the Beatles will bring a reader back time and time again to a group of young people with strong beliefs. They faced the same hardships as the rest of the world, quite possibly on a larger scale. Where you are, who you are and all of your experiences and the ones of those you touch create your attitude, your music and your ideas. Liverpool was a city of people who worked for a living and loved as dearly as the rest of the world and the Beatles took that history to the World as boldly as their heritage.
” You may say I am a dreamer, but I am not the only one. I hope someday you will join us. And the world will live as one." This is a very powerful quote from a Beatles song by John Lennon. His voice was very powerful, speaking of the natural way people reach out and recoil. The era was filled with hope and disasters. Many of these troubles concerned the soul of the world rather than the physical things going on in it. The time was filled with its share of hatred for no good reason but the dreamers were hopeful and were the light in the darkness of that era.
The words and music of the Beatles are songs written and sang by very thoughtful men.
Music requires a more scrutinizing look at the world you live in and money makes you less frightened of seeing it and people for what they really are and time, well, time makes you more apt to call it like you see it. This is the legacy of quotes from the Beatles.
Beatle Mania is still going. Interesting thing, the music is more interesting than ever. A little like the smirk on the face of Mona Lisa, how much English did the Beatles place on their music lyrics. Are there meanings only the caring recognized? The special gift of Beatle Mania is only now coming into fruition as the World reflects upon the genius of the boys from Liverpool the world knows as, The Beatles.
