1. Do You Want To Know A Secret ? (Opens with 13 seconds of rubato)

2. I Me Mine

3. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

4. Fixing A Hole (one of the worst examples of Ringo's internal metronome letting him down, the whole song ends 8BPM faster than it starts. A significant enough deviation to include it imo, but feel free to disqualify this

5. Within You Without You (it gets faster at "about the love that's gone so cold")

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.

13 Beatles songs that don’t maintain a consistent tempo throughout:

1. Do You Want To Know A Secret ? (Opens with 13 seconds of rubato)

2. I Me Mine

3. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

4. Fixing A Hole (one of the worst examples of Ringo's internal metronome letting him down, the whole song ends 8BPM faster than it starts. A significant enough deviation to include it imo)

5. Within You Without You (it gets faster at "about the love that's gone so cold", and frequently abandons beat altogether)

6. She Loves You (extended pause before the final "...be glaaaaad!, yeah yeah yeah...")

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

13 PLACES THE BEATLES PERFORMED THAT NO LONGER EXIST

This could either be a full concert or just a song or two such as for a TV show.  You need not be super detailed with dates and such if you do not know info.

1. International Amphitheater, Chicago, IL - Beatles did a show 9/5/64.  It was demolished in 1999.

Thanks, @Ron Nasty. I got into the Beatles in May 2020, so i'm still learning, and can sometimes be confused with things.

3. Candlestick Park, San Francisco, CA - Site of last official Beatles concert on 8/29/66.  Place was gradually torn down starting in 2013.  Giants and 49ers play in new stadiums.

 

I agree with Ron.  The Ed Sullivan Theater is still used for the David Letterman Show and Stephen Colbert Show on CBS.  I am hoping Forum users may be more familiar with their local area for this list.

Afraid the Casbah Coffee Club still very much exists, @Magill; it was in the basement of Mona Best's home at Hayman's Green, which is now a Grade II listed building, and is run as a tourist attraction by the Best family. AG and I went there on her first trip to Liverpool, with a tour given by Roag Best (son of Mona and Neil Aspinall). Still features the original paint job done by John, Paul, George and Ken Brown, as well as the silhouette of John painted by Cynthia, and graffiti by John (which got him a clip round the ear from Mona).

When it was given Grade II protection in 2006, Bob Hawkins, who headed English Heritage's Protection unit in the North of England said of it:

The basement Casbah Club rooms are historically significant because they represent tangible evidence of The Beatles' formation, their growth in popularity and their enduring cultural influence throughout the world. The club survives in a remarkably well-preserved condition since its closure in 1962, with wall and ceiling paintings of spiders, dragons, rainbows and stars by original band members along with 1960s musical equipment, amplifiers and original chairs. We know of no other survival like it in Liverpool or indeed anywhere else.

Sorry.

3. Odeon Cinema, London Road, Liverpool - On December 7, 1963, The Beatles played twice at one of Liverpool's largest cinemas which was also the venue for the northern premier of A Hard Day's Night in 1964. The cinema was recently demolished and is currently being developed as part of a £35m project to build 500 student homes.
