GUEST,Sidewinder Beatles and Folk music (103* d) RE: Beatles and Folk music 11 Feb 05

It had to happen; mention "Beatles" in a thread and here comes the greatest "Beatlemaniac" of em' all to the bar. I first encountered Beatles music when I was very young in Pubs and Clubs and the old charabangs (coach trips to the seaside) where a line of a song would be thrown out and everybody, as if by magic, knew all the words and the tune and it would lift the spirits of every person there."She Loves You" "Hey Jude" "Help!" etc.etc.etc. All traditional folk songs to a boy who didn't know or care the whys? and wherefores? that seem to preoccupy so many "Musos" these days. Still I venture to the odd Hostelry from time to time and to this day I hear these songs being sung and peoples reactions are just the same as back in the day. The only difference is I know the whys? and wherefores? now.But "it doesn't really matter if I'm wrong, I'm right, where I belong, I'm right, where I belong.Silly people standing round, who disagree, and never win, and wonder why they don't get past my door".says it all really!

I rest my case.
