Well, I can say that the Beatles were revealed to my ears when I was near 7, circa 1969, and they were in breakup course, but at that age I hadn't notion for these stuffs... I just can remmember the songs that was playing on my dad's radio like "Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da", "Come together", "Get back","Something", etc. plus their early hits "Please please me", "She loves you"(this one made all the early Beatles songs in Brazil known as "ié-ié-ié" refering to the "yeah-yeah-yeah" as a song rhythm, ain't it funny?), and stuffs like these, and I thought how cool are the way these guys sing and play. The Beatles never came to a tour on stage or even to take some holidays to my country that time, and we only could see'em on TV's video-tapes or in a movie(Help!, Hard day's night). But truely I started to be a huge fan in a few time after they broked up in circa 72~73... So I really started to enjoy theirs sound in solo careers although I love their songs like a group. Lately we had seen only Macca personally on stage here and unfortunately deceased George Harrison that sometimes came to see the F1 Races 'cos he was a close brazilian racer Fittipaldi's friend. Tragically John never won't come here anymore we all know why... And Ringo... well he's not precisely a greeeat musician but he's just a nice guy to me like some next door good-natured neighbour, BUT he had a merit for joined all the formers in post-Beatle era and done some good stuffs(a few little gems!) with his fellows. This is the resume of my encounter with the Fab Four's songs. Their songs is like a therapy to me. When I'm feeling down I just put any of their songs to play!! That's it guys, I extended it too much I think!!
