Sorry if there's another thread like this already blue-meanie

 

But Anyway!!! a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

You can write a letter or question to a Beatle here! Or crew member! Or a member of their family! Or former bandmate! Do whatever you want!!!! a-hard-days-night-ringo-10 (Ringo approves!)

 

Here's mine:

Dear Beatles,

 

On the seventh day, God rested.

And on the eighth day, he created you guys out of the palm of his hand, while you were singing Eight Days A Week.

 

I know, cheesy intro :/

 

But anyway, there are some things that come, maybe once in an entire millenium. People who come and take the world by storm, and changing the way we look at things for good. You are, without a doubt, an entire group of those people. The Beatles have changed my life so much, it's almost impossible to explain everything.

 

Before I started listening to you four, I didn't know my place on Earth, seriously, I didn't. I was always the weird, quiet kid at school, and I was bullied very frequently. I was secretly suffering from anorexia, and I also suffered from asperger's syndrome. I was not quite sure how I was going to pull through at first, but then I came upon a small box of vinyl records stored away in my dad's music room from his DJ days.

 I shuffled through the records, looking for maybe some eighties pop. The I happened to pull out an old 45 wedged between Tiffany and INXS. The Beatles, Hey Jude and Revolution. I sorta remembered the "na, na, na, na na na na" from Hey Jude, but that was about it. We happened to have a record player in the music rooma nd my dad taught me how to use it at age ten. I looked at the shiny vinyl record (which was in pretty good condition, which suprised me because it had been locked in a closet for nearly 15 years), and I looked at the record player and thought "why not, a little Beatles won't hurt.".

 

Seven minutes and five seconds later, I could feel the tears beginning to brim up in my eyes, I actually felt like Paul was singing to me. I felt my body tremble, and I broke down in an instant. 

 

I listened to Hey Jude a total of 14 times that night, and Revolution 10 times. And the next day, I talked to my parents and my school counsler about my anorexia and the bullies in my school. It was as if the Lord said to me, "This is your dream and your purpose in life, use it wisely.". It might be odd to say, but The Beatles saved my life. And I have my heart set on a career in music thanks to you.

 

On behalf of all the Beatlemaniacs like me on Earth, I want to say, Thank you, for the lasting legacy that you left us.

 

-Ali

You are very lucky, I wish I had a lot of their clothes...(John's "Property of Her Majesty's Prison" tshirt, anyone?)

Dear Paul and Ringo,

Please let us hear "Carnival Of Light" in your lifetime, while the decision is still yours, and not that of some record-company weasel. Because you just KNOW some cynical, soulless, profit-obsessed EMI/Apple hack will inevitably find a way to release it after you both leave this planet (which hopefully won't be for a Long, Long, Long time.) We superfans believe that EVERY Beatles recording is a precious artifact, regardless of its musical value. You really can't lose by releasing it yourself: Best-case scenario is "Wow, this is utterly fantasic, my mind is blown yet again! Better than Pink Floyd, Amon Düül and the Grateful Dead put together! Geniuses!”; worst-case is "Wow, this really sucks, no wonder they were reluctant to free it from the vault! How courageous and noble of them to risk ridicule by finally releasing it, just because we selfish superfans felt we were 'entitled' to hear it!" That's if you make the decision yourself. Let the execs do it posthumously, however, and some of us will be thinking (through our tears) "Well, at least maybe something good will come of this, like maybe we'll finally get an opportunity to hear 'CoL' now." And such an unthinkable thought - that something GOOD may result from a Beatle death - is too horrible to bear. So come on, guys!

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Now that's something you HAVE to agree on. I heard about that song  while back and I have been dying to hear it ever since! You deserve an apple01!
