Beatles on my mind

Been listening to The Beatles yesterday. I've got a huge collection of their songs, and I'm a big fan of their music. Though I'm not from the Flower Power mood of the sixtees/seventies, but I really dig this music. Its groovy, baby. Serious music lovers may not really appreciate their music. You may think its outdated, but I think their stuff is timeless. While they may have sung a lot of inane numbers, some of their songs are sheer poetry, and some are real gems.

The ones that I love are "There's a place", "A taste of honey", "Please please me", and sooo many more.

For poetry, you just cant beat "Across the Universe". Check this out:

Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
Are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Get the complete lyrics here.

And a real gem is "Imagine". Its a slow song, almost like the blues, and an imaginative (?) song. :)) Check this out:

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Get the complete lyrics here.

Happy listening!
