The Beatles (Audio) and a BAFAB Giveaway

NOTE TO READERS: Thanks to everyone who entered the Beatles giveaway. I’m overwhelmed by the response! I’ll be selecting a winner and compiling a list of Top Five responses later today, so stay tuned.

Has there ever been a band with a style as diverse as that of the Beatles? It’s hard to imagine how a single band could produce a range of songs that includes “She Loves You,” “Yesterday,” “Magical Mystery Tour,” “A Day in the Life,” and “Helter Skelter.” How could one band do it? In The Beatles: The Biography, Bob Spitz shares the story behind the Beatles’ successes and failures.

Spitz begins with John Lennon’s early years playing skiffle music (a sort of folk music played on homemade instruments) and follows the Beatles story all the way through the band’s tumultuous break-up. It’s a fairly comprehensive biography, exploring the music, the business, and the Fab Four’s personal lives.

I’ve never been a hard-core fan of the Beatles; I’d describe myself as more of a casual admirer. As a casual admirer, I learned a lot from this book, but I doubt that serious Beatles enthusiasts would find much new information here. As far as I can tell, there were no great revelations—what’s new is the comprehensiveness of the book.

Particularly fascinating were the insights into the music itself. It was a treat to learn more about the creation of the songs, the album cover designs, and the evolution of the band’s sound. For example, as a listener, I already knew that the opening chord of “A Hard Day’s Night” sounds cool, but I didn’t know what a complex piece of music making that one chord is.

Less interesting to me were the chapters on the Beatles’ early years. They played in clubs, acted as a back-up band, recorded a few tracks, and partied in Hamburg—over and over again. Once Brian Epstein came on the scene and the Beatles started making successful records, my interest in the story picked up.

The gossipy bits about who the Beatles dated and when were only interesting to me when these relationships affected the music (as the introduction of Yoko Ono did). However, a biography of the band would be incomplete without this information, so I’m not sorry it was there—I was just mostly interested in the music.

Although I actually listened to this book on audio, I’ve had a paperback copy sitting on my shelf for ages. So in honor of BAFAB (Buy a Friend a Book) week, I’d like to pass that unread paperback copy on to a Shelf Love reader. If you’d like a chance to win, please comment on this post with a list of your top five favorite Beatles songs by October 7.

I’ll get the ball rolling with my list (in no particular order):

  • Eleanor Rigby
  • She’s Leaving Home
  • Let It Be
  • Help!
  • For the Benefit of Mr. Kite

If you ask me tomorrow, you’ll probably get a different list, but those are the ones that strike my fancy today.

    MY TOP FIVE FAVORITE BEATLES SONGS

    5. Girl

    A million love songs are lies, but Girl is the truest. Being in love is never very fun when it actually hits; leave it to John Lennon, the most perceptive human being ever to have existed, to write a snide and sarcastic anti-love love song that quite simply Nails It All. The reality of Love is that it is an annoying mix of self-doubt and preoccupation, confusion and reverence, inconvenience and palpitation. Sort of like: “When I think of all the times I tried so hard to leave her/She will turn to me and start to cry/And she promises the earth to me and I believe her/After all this time I don’t know why.”

    Later on in his life, John Lennon said that this song was about the dream of Yoko Ono before he’d ever met her. I’m happy it’s Yoko. This song is AMAZING also because of: 1) the “I’m John Lennon and I’m so cool for using the sound of myself puffing on a joint as a percussive embellishment” sound FX, and 2) the George/Paul backing vocal refrain of “tit-tit-tit-tit-tit” which is the noise of the Beatles being awesomely immature and seeing if they could get away with saying “tit” in a song (apparently they could).

    This song was never released as a single or performed live (as far as I know), so instead of watching a super-rad Candlestick Park performance of this song, you are going to have to settle for watching one of those weird Youtube clip-vids that nerdfaces put together so that Beatles-obsessed bloggers will have something to supplement their “Girl is my fifth-favorite Beatles song”.

    4. Rain

    I didn’t hear Rain until relatively late in my life because it’s not on any of the long-players and once upon a time I was fourteen and ignorant and lived in a Wikipedia-free Universe where these things happened sometimes. Then I heard it on Past Masters Volume I and could not believe my ears, and that’s when Girl got bumped down to Slot #5 and either Please Please Me or Twist and Shout lost its spot in the uber-exclusive Laura Jane’s Top Five Hearts Club Band. Rain is sparkly and exciting and danceable and contemplative and anti-Normie and positive and negative and SO COOL.

    3. Long, Long, Long

    This might seem like a weird choice to be my third-favorite Beatles song of all time, but I love it particularly for that very reason. Long, Long, Long a secret surprise that only real Beatles fans get to know about; I pity all the half-baked Beatles fans of the world who listen to that stupid Beatles Number One Hits CD and totally ignore the existence of opalescent gems like this one. Long, Long, Long is the last song on Side C of The White Album, tracked directly after Helter Skelter, which is so boisterous and “Look at me! Look at me!” it makes a Gay Pride Parade look like a Zen monastery. The insanely-underrated Long, Long, Long is a Harrison-penned love song to his Lord and Savior Hare Hare Krishna or what-have-you, but in my life, it’s always been the song I turn to when I need to pine, ache, and feel out-of-control sorry for myself.

    It is a natural fact that I start crying 9 out of 10 times that I listen to Long, Long, Long, and you should too!

    2. Strawberry Fields Forever

    I don’t know how to explain this. Why should I? Writing a paragraph about why Strawberry Fields Forever is my second-favorite Beatles song of all time is like writing a paragraph about why I have brown eyes (actually, I don’t even have brown eyes- they’re hazel, but I always feel like a snot and a half saying “hazel” instead of “brown”; like- get over it! Nobody cares, loser!). Strawberry Fields Forever is my go-to for days when I am feeling overwhelmed or a little heavy on the malaise; any emotion that is in any way with tinged with negativity can be instantly soothed by listening to Strawberry Fields Forever. Strawberry Fields Forever is a gift. George Harrison also has hazel eyes.

    1. Hey Jude

    The only problem I have with naming Hey Jude as my favorite Beatles song is that it sort of kills me that it is a Paul song and not a John song, but OH WELL, they all were great. Hey Jude is objectively the best Beatles song there is. It’s a fact, we all just have to bow our heads, cock our brows, curl our lips and admit to ourselves and the Universe forever that Paul won this round. He straight-up did. Paul McCartney wrote the best Beatles song; John Lennon didn’t. That’s the way it is; there you go. Case Closed. And now you know.

    Omg!! This is the best! Even my little granddaugher knows that Meme’s “boyfriend” is Paul McCartney!
    But, how to pick 5 when they are ALL my favorites!!!
    There is one that I dearly love maybe a little more than the rest, and I did not see it on anyone’s list.
    1 – The Two of Us
    It is supposedly about Paul and Linda, but I always think of John and Paul as they sing it. And in my mind I see the black and white picture of them together that Linda took while they were writing a son.
    2 – No Reply
    3 – Baby’s in Black
    4 – Got to Get You into My Life
    5 – Across the Universe
    Of course this changes by the hour since I love everything they did and listen to their music all of the time!
