The Complete Beatles Songs

Steve Turner

Hachette Australia

ISBN: 9780733635021

 

Description:

For the first time, every single lyric of every single Beatles song appears in one book, with the story behind its creation.

 

Who was ‘just seventeen’ and made Paul’s heart go ‘boom’? Who was ‘Lady Madonna’? Was there really an Eleanor Rigby? Why was Paul the ‘walrus’ and what inspired the lyrics to Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’?

 

The Complete Beatles Songs shatters many well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four’s rich legacy by investigating the events immortalised in The Beatles’ music and now occupying a special niche in popular culture’s collective imagination.

 

This beautifully packaged – and first-of-its-kind – 2015 edition has been fully revised with a complete set of printed lyrics to accompany each song. Every Beatles-penned song is discussed and the inspiration behind it is examined, including all of their studio albums and later official releases.

 

 

My View:

You got me at the word BEATLES!

 

I am a big fan of the Beatles, the minute I saw the title of this book I knew I had to have, hold and devour this book. This is a book that will get you humming away or maybe singing out loud…enjoying the music of the Beatles all over again. Full of great images, (the images are amazing!) and the words to every great song the Beatles recorded – they were all great, and the inspiration behind the songs, this book has it all. Reminisce, sing, and smile. Love the music and the era, this book will transport you to a different world.

 

So if you ever wanted to know the actual words to Michelle or Yellow Submarine or Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds….this book is for your sister, your brother, your mum, your dad…be honest this book is a gift to YOURSELF!

  1. Oh, this one is just up my street, Carol! I love The Beatles, and it’s so interesting to learn the stories behind the songs. I am not in the least surprised you treated yourself to this one. Just may have to do that, myself!
