I'm kind of inspired after listening to George so…

Dear George Harrison

Thank-you for being such awesome person. Thanks for making music and I just want to let you know that you are one of my role models (I have 3 one is my mom lol) and that you express feelings so well in your music that has helped me through many good and bad moments, when nobodies there, I can listen to you and feel better, feel that I'm not the only person who had the same situation. Thanks for telling me that All things must pass and I should beware of darkness and sadness... I feel that thanks to you I shouldn't care about being shy, that everyone says that you're really quiet, that you don't talk but inside and with your close friends know you never stop talking. You have taught me that you shouldn't think of what other people say, as long that you know who you really are. You put your soul to your music, thanks for sharing. Also taught me that I should never smoke…a-hard-days-night-george-5. Just a big thank-you from the bottom of my heart. I will remember this all my lifeheart

Sincerely me.

 

(I know its kind of weird, but after listening to him I miss him and I always wanted to meet him…)

 

oh and this is for Olivia Harrison (I know, not a beatle, but a wife!)

 

Dear Olivia H.

You are one of the luckiest person alive, you were married to George!a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 …Anyways, just wanted to say thank-you for not letting down george (I think she didn't lol) also, thanks for being able to fight for George when that pshyco entered Friar  Park. He survived more time because of you. Big thank-you!

Sincerely me.

I want to write one now, too, so here goes:

 

Dear John, Paul, George and Ringo~

 

Thanks so much for giving the world your music. For the past three years (though it feels like my entire life), you have helped me get by. On the awful day I learned I was going to move, you helped me to cry it out and remember all the places 'in my life'. You've also helped me to celebrate my life... all those late nights in the 6th grade, running around the house with my iPod until three and then falling asleep listening to cassettes of yours at who knows what hour! 

 

You've helped me to appreciate rock music as not just distracting noise, but an art form. Thanks for introducing me to all sorts of bands I would've otherwise ignored! Also, thanks for inspiring me to take guitar lessons. And for inspiring to write songs. And poems. And, well, just inspiring me artistically overall!!!

 

So, gosh, you all are absolutely amazing. I can't put my thanks into the proper words- there's just so much to say! I just wanted you to know that you have made an enormous impact on my life and I feel so much better since I found your music. 

Sincerely, 

Myself  

 

P.S. here's an apple for each of you: apple01apple01apple01apple01

Dear Paul and Ringo,

 

Where is the Let It Be movie whilst Apple continue to release so much junk in the name of merchandise? Have a little word please.

And when you happen to think of John and George can you please send them my hello's in your thoughts.

Your four were and continue to be the coolest.

 

Thanks.

Take care and have fun.

Give my hello's to the family.

Dear Sir Paul McCartney,

               Well hey, my name is Unknown (I would put my real name if I had one) and I am a very big fan of yours. You are such an amazing person. I actually like to have a nice cry about how great you are at least once a month. My love for you had started out with the music, but it has become much, much more complicated than that. Though it might have been indirectly, you have changed my whole life for the better and I would just like to thank you for that. You have inspired me to better myself in many ways, some of the things you have inspired me to do might seem pretty weird considering I do not really know you personally, and that ultimately, you are just a very popular musician that I like really hard. I do not believe that I am truly believing of this fact, because my relationship with you is very deep, for you have touched me very deeply and have like I said before, changed me whole life round the better! I have always been a fan of you, ever since I could remember. Incidentally, sorry if this letter is pretty all over the place; I don't like people telling me that I have to write a certain way because it makes more sense to them. Plus, I don't think paragraphs would make much sense here, anyways. Your involvement with PETA had made me more conscious of what I was eating, and inspired me to become vegetarian, and about a year ago I became vegan. The music you made, not only with The Beatles, but also with Wings and just yourself never fails to just make me really happy. I'm not really one for laughing, or smiling I guess, but I can't help it when I listen to some of your songs

                 Love,

                     Unknown

 

Honestly, that took so long, and I just don't have the patience to finish it. a-hard-days-night-george-5

Dearest, most lovely John,

                I honestly don't think there are enough sentimental words in the universe to express the gratitude I have for you. Not only have you changed my perspective in music over the last four years of my life, but you have helped to mold me into the person I am today. Before I started listening to The Beatles, I was a lost soul. I felt inferior to the world around me because I thought differently than what was expected of me: being young, I assumed that this could only mean that there must have been something wrong with me. Why was it that I could see the world in such a different light than all the rest? How was it that I had been able to unlock the ways of life at fourteen that it took others so long to realize--things that some would never be able to see? And then I found you: first in your music; then in your writings; then in your interviews; then in your story. Your story--how I attached myself to it like a leech! Finally someone who would be able to understand me: someone whose own story I could relate to! Your music spoke to me like no other's could...it felt as if every single song you wrote was written for me. We were the same, you and I. "I was different from the others," you'd said. "There was always something wrong with me, I thought, because I seemed to see things people didn't see. I always saw things in a hallucinatory way. I was different, I was always different. Why didn't anybody notice me?" You know how people just need that magnetic pull to point their moral compass in the right direction? You were that for me and more. You have inspired me to change so many negative aspects of my life and take on the qualities of a pacifist--the hidden qualities that had always been a part of my being but took so long for me to see. I may never have been able to hear you speak/sing a word during my own lifetime, but silence sometimes has a habit of speaking louder than words--and your words were the most grand and influential of all. I know you will never be able to read this letter, but I'd like to think that you're somewhere off in the distance hearing these words as they are taken from my heart. Thank you for changing me for the better; but more importantly, thank you for being yourself.

                Love,

                       Dipsy

A letter to the Beatles... sounds fun!

 

Dear Ringo, George, Paul, and John (yeah, that's right- I changed the order! Ringo doesn't deserve to be named last every time):

You are my heroes. There. I said it.

To me, your music is more than just music. It is a message, an influence, a motivation, a way of life. And I'm sorry if that sounds like I worship you- don't worry, I'm not that crazy; I'm a just a tiny bit less crazy than that.

Anyway, you are all amazing musicians, and amazing people as well. You changed the world, and it's really astounding that you came so far when it's considered that you started out as four ordinary boys from Liverpool.

I know you've heard all of this before, but I want you to know that you've changed my life for the better. Whenever things seem hopeless, I can listen to your music, and it's like you're singing and playing music just for me; you're reassuring me through your music that everything is going to turn out all right.

Now that I've addressed the band as a whole, I want to write a few sentences to each of you.

I'll start with Ringo.

Ringo, you need to know that you're the best drummer ever. In the world. In the universe. And I don't want you to worry that you're just "the drummer." It's not true that it's John, the witty one, Paul, the cute one, George, the quiet one, and Ringo, "the drummer." You're not "the drummer." You're "THE drummer." And not only that, you're a wonderful person, and you deserve as much praise as the other three. Ringo Starr is awesome. You really are.

Paul's turn.

Paul, you are an amazing musician (and you're not dead, in case you were worried I believed in the myth). You are also a great person, and your vegetarianism and support for animal rights have influenced me and helped point me towards that kind of lifestyle, which I strongly believe in. Your bass skills are incredible, as are your guitar skills, and your ability to play other instruments is incredible as well. Thank you for contributing so much to the world.

Now it's John's turn.

John... Where to start? You are an incredibly gifted musician and lyricist, and I love your wit and sense of humor. Your messages about peace and love are very inspiring, and you are mostly (and I say that with affection and a bit of jokingness, or whatever the word is) a wonderful person.  You deserved a much longer life, but even in only 40 years you managed to change the world. I sincerely hope you are happy wherever you are. I didn't write much to you, but that is only because I can't find the right words to describe you. Thank you for, well... being John Lennon. That's all that I can say.

And finally, George.

George, I love you. It's not like I haven't said that already. Read my username backwards. I really mean it. Anyway, your music and musical skills are amazing, not to mention your clever lyrics. You are "the quiet one," but when you do speak up, it's always meaningful and clever. I also find your spiritual beliefs intriguing, and that makes you even more amazing. (I'd mention something about your looks, but it doesn't seem to be the right time...) I honestly can't think of anything else to say. Somehow, you've influenced me in ways that even I can't understand, and I can't put it into words. I wish you were still here, but as you said, all things must pass. I love you, George. Thank you for being who you are.

Well, now that I've gone and made myself all teary and emotional, I suppose I'll close this letter. Thank you, Beatles, for being the Beatles and playing your music that will always stand the test of time. I love you all.

heart -Egroeg Evoli, or Seltaeb Evoli, which seems more appropriate for this letter

Dear John, Paul, George, and Ringo,

Hi. This letter might wind up being a bit awkward, but I feel like I should get at least some of my feelings out. You've all been a part of my life for nearly as long as I can remember; I heard you singing on Sundays on the radio when I was a little kid, and I decided that I had two favorite bands at that time: you, and The Beach Boys. I found the movie "A Hard Day's Night" in our movie cabinet and decided to watch it, which is slightly awkward when I look back and realize how much of it I didn't understand at all. I'll be honest, I figured out who Ringo was first, then (after developing a crush) Paul. I don't remember how I figured out who was John versus George, but it must have been slightly before I became tired of hearing the same few songs all the time. I was away from you for quite a while, but you couldn't have been more welcome than at the time that I went back to you. I was dealing with some large life changes, and I wasn't handling them as well as I should have, but I found a video about you that gave me a bit of comfort one night, as well as introducing me to songs of yours that I had never heard of. I became curious about your music and lives, and my search for information helped me to come out of my shell at school. Your music has contributed to the cause of a new friendship, and soothed me when I've been upset.

John. Some of the things I've read/heard about you aren't the nicest, but somehow I feel closer to you than the others. Maybe it's due to the fact that I know you weren't an entirely bad person, but you had times when you did things you shouldn't have. Anyways, thank you for the amazing music and for starting the band that would eventually affect lives all around the world, including mine; thanks for everything.

George. I'm sorry about learning your name last, I wasn't exactly the brightest youngster. I've wondered what it would be like to meet you and the other Beatles, and I realized that I would probably approach you first. Or Ringo. There's just something about you that exudes calm and comfort, and that's something that I find so incredible about you. I'll admit, I've only recently started listening to more of your songs, but I'm so glad that I have. Your music makes me think, makes me reconsider choices that I'm about to make, and is capable of offering comfort when I need it. Your guitar playing tugs at my heart in ways that I rarely experience. Thank you for everything.  

Ringo. Seeing and hearing you as Mr. Conductor was and still is amazing. It took me until recent years to understand how much you affected the band, and I'm sorry for not realizing it sooner. If I were to meet the group. and if I couldn't meet George first, I would want to meet you. You and George are tied for first place on that point, mainly because you seem so much more approachable to me (I'm kinda shy). You're an amazing drummer, and some of my favorite parts about watching videos of your concerts is seeing you having fun while you play. It tends to make me smile a lot. Thanks for everything, just...thank you.

Paul. So, this part will likely be the most awkward if you've read the first part of this letter, but I shall write anyways. You...You have no idea how much of an effect you have and have had on me over the years. I grew up hearing you, seeing you, sing "And I Love Her", and I think that that is where my crush started. Beyond that though, your music has helped me feel brave, soothed me, and helped me to fall asleep. There are things that I don't necessarily agree with you on, but those disagreements are helping me to discover who I am because I'm not just mindlessly following you. Thank you for the music and everything.

All of you. Thanks for having such a huge impact on my life. Not only for having an impact, but for having a positive one. I'll likely be a fan of you for the rest of my life, and something that I like about you is the fact that I will never know everything about you, but I'm okay with it. Thanks for the music, the memories, and everything. You're all amazing, and I am so glad that you formed a band that still affects the world.

Dear Mr. James Paul MacCartney,

I am the manager of auditing and accounting department of Bank of Africa (B.O.A) here in ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$20.5m Dollars ( TWENTY MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOMMARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer ( MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER From Munich, Germany) Who died along with his entire family in jully 2000 in a plane crash for more information about the crash you can visit this site::(http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wor.....859479.stm)

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

Trusting to hear from you immediately for more explainations.
Mr. Abdullah Moussa
Yours Faithfully,
MANAGER.
