40 a.B (after Beatles)

The Long and Winding Road from the December 31, 1970 to the present day.

A lot of things have changed since Paul McCartney filed for the dissolution of the band that cold winter afternoon. A lot of things, except one: our love for their music. From the 12 inch records of our fathers to the 12 GB pen drives of our children, The Beatles are still one of the most heard music groups of our time. And its not hard to imagine why.

Theirs is a music of love, in a time of loneliness. A message of peace in a world of war. A search of enlightenment in a empty society.

Good music fades away. Good messages are timeless. And The Beatles were masters at creating both. The fab four walked the thin line between instrument and message. The line of great music.

Here my favorite messages from my favorite group:

All the lonely people, where do they all come from. All the lonely people, where do they all belong. (Facebook, I guess) – Eleanor Rigby

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though they are here to stay. Oh, I believe in yesterday. – Yesterday

Bright are the stars that shine. Dark is the sky. I know this love of mine, will never die and I love her. – And I Love Her

You are asking me will my love grow. I don´t know, I don´t know. You stick around and it may show. I don´t know, I don´t know. – Something

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see. Its getting hard to be someone, but it all works out. It doesn’t matter much to me. – Strawberry Fields Forever

Here come the sun, here comes the sun and I say its alright. Little darling its been a long, cold lonely winter. Little darling it feels like years since its been here. Here comes the sun. – Here comes the Sun

You want her. You need her. And yet you don´t believe her when she says she no longer needs you. You think she needs you…. and in her eyes you see nothing. No sign of love behind the tears, cried for no one. A love that should have lasted years – For No One

And I will be sad if our new love was vain. So I hope you see that I would love to love you. – If I Fell

When I find myself in times of troubles Mother Mary comes to me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. – Let it Be

Sounds of laughter, shades of life are ringing through my open ears. Exciting and inviting me. Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns. It calls me on and on across the universe. Nothing´s gonna change my world – Across the Universe

John Lennon – The Messenger
Paul McCartney – The Visionary
George Harrison – The Mystic
and Ringo Starr – The Lamb

They are the idols of past and present. The knights of a Queen and ambassadors amongst Kings. Rest in strawberry fields forever John. Here comes the sun George. May your music continue inspiring millions for centuries to come.
