Love Me Do considered key Beatles song

Also interesting for Beatles fans, is “Love Me Do” and “P.S. I Love You” are the only two Lennon & McCartney songs that John Lennon’s estate and Paul McCartney wholly own; according to an EMI record company history that explains how “the Beatles’ first two (released) recordings were part of their own ‘in-house’ publishers.”
In turn, Ringo Starr explained during interviews for the Beatles Anthology that: “The first record, ‘Love Me Do’ — for me, that was more important than anything else. That first piece of plastic. You can’t believe how great that was. It was so wonderful. We were on a record!”

The Beatles Anthology also explains how “Love Me Do” was one of the first Lennon-McCartney songs, with the principal lyrics written by McCartney sometime between 1958-1959.
In turn, Lennon wrote the “middle eight” of Love Me Do; while the anthology noted that “intrinsically it’s a song based around two simple chords: G7 and C, before moving to D for Lennon’s “middle eight.”
The Anthology also explains hot it “first profiles Lennon playing a bluesy dry ‘dockside harmonica’ riff, and then features Lennon and McCartney on joint lead vocals, including an Everly Brothers style harmonizing during the beseeching ‘please’ before McCartney sings the unaccompanied vocal line on the song’s title phrase.”
“Love Me Do,” features these lyrics from its first cut in 1962:

“Love, love me do.
You know I love you,
I’ll always be true,
So please, love me do.
Whoa, love me do.

Love, love me do.
You know I love you,
I’ll always be true,
So please, love me do.
Whoa, love me do.

Someone to love,
Somebody new.
Someone to love,
Someone like you…”.


Beatles fans called to Liverpool

Meanwhile, has announced that “The Beatles will be remembered in 2012 in a year-long season of music, film and verse in their home city of Liverpool, England. The 12-month program of cultural events will be focus on the 50th anniversary of the birth of the most enduringly popular music band. This year marks the half-century that has passed since the formation of the Beatles.”
For instance, in June, “The Two of Us: The Lennon and McCartney Songbook” will see the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra perform the band’s songs over two evenings.”
“We’re delighted to be playing our part in this special Beatles anniversary, paying our tribute to the four Liverpool lads whose music continues to have an extraordinary impact around the world.” Explained Michael Eakin, chief executive of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on recently.
Also, on August 18, Hulme Hall in Port Sunlight, will host a musical event celebrating the date that Ringo Starr made his Beatles debut. The next day, August 19, marks the 50-year anniversary of the band’s first gig at The Cavern,” added.

Thank You Boys! Grazie.

In loro onore é arrivato in sala, ma solo per un giorno, George Harrison: Living in the Material World, l’omaggio di Martin Scorsese a uno degli artisti più complessi ed emblematici della storia della musica.

BEATLES: Quattro nomi che hanno fatto una parte importante della storia della musica, che hanno colorato, con una indimenticabile colonna sonora, un decennio caratterizzato da progresso tecnologico ed emancipazione femminile, macchiato da guerre incomprensibili e lotte razziali estenuanti.
Quattro ragazzi che avrebbero potuto tranquillamente restare un complessino, come ce n’erano tanti, ma che invece diventarono un fenomeno musicale per la storia del rock e della musica pop contemporanea, che ha inciso tra il 1962 e il 1970 una serie di LP memorabili.
Il nome dei Beatles è stato incollato ad un’immagine appartenente al mondo della musica e le loro canzoni a lungo confinate nell’angusta casella della loro epoca. Collocare l’opera dei Beatles esclusivamente nella contemporaneità del movimento beat e del colorato Flower Power significa ridurre alla pietrificazione un testo vivo che rappresenta una generazione senza tempo.
