What group is it? What are their names?
The Beatles were an English rock band who became one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music.
The Beatles were the most famous pop group of the 1960s. Their music was not only popular in Britain, but all lover the world. Beat (ритм) + Beetle (жук) = “The Beatles”
The members of the band were John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums,vocals).
John Lennon learnt to play harmonica at the age of 12 but he wanted to be a millionaire not a musician. He met Paul McCartney in 1955 and they started the Beatles in 1960.
The group came to be perceived as the embodiment of progressive ideals, seeing their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.
Some well-known songs by the Beatles are "Lucy 'In the Sky With Diamonds" and “ Oh, girl". "Yesterday", "Strawberry Fields Forever",
Their songs were catchy, amazing and unforgettable.
YESTERDAY Lennon / McCartney Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away Now it looks as though they're here to stay Oh, I believe in yesterday. Suddenly, I'm not half to man I used to be, There's a shadow hanging over me. Oh, yesterday came suddenly. Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say. I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday. Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play. Now I need a place to hide away. Oh, I believe in yesterday. Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say. I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday. Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play. Now I need a place to hide away. Oh, I believe in yesterday.
YELLOW SUBMARINE Lennon / McCartney In the town where I was born Lived a man who sailed to sea And he told us of his life In the land of submarines So we sailed up to the sun Till we found the sea of green And we lived beneath the waves In our yellow submarine We all live in our yellow submarine, Yellow submarine, yellow submarine We all live in our yellow submarine, Yellow submarine, yellow submarine And our friends are all on board Many more of them live next door And the band begins to play As we live a life of ease Everyone of us has all we need Sky of blue and sea of green In our yellow submarine.
GIRL Lennon / McCartney Is there anybody gone to listen to my story All about the girl who came to stay? She's the kind of girl you want so much It makes you sorry Still, you don't regret a single day. Ah girl! Girl! When I think of all the times I've 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 times I don't know why. Ah, girl! Girl! She's the kind of girl who puts you down when friends are there, You feel a fool. When you say she's looking good, she acts as if it's understood. She's cool, cool, cool, cool, Girl! Girl! Was she told when she was young the pain Would lead to pleasure? Did she understand it when they said That a man must break his back to earn His day of leisure? Will she still believe it when he's dead? Ah girl! Girl! Girl!
А histeria that the newspapers called “Beatlemania” swept Britain and soon, America.
Still this time a lot of newspapers wrote about “The Beatles”, their work, their songs, their concerts and, of course, their personal life.
On the pick of their carrier they wore stylish clothes: classical suits, ties – and look very fashion.
But they were informal on the press-conference. They could make joke, smiled, gave unserious answers.
They also starred in two films, "A Hard Day's Night" in 1964 and "Help!" in 1965.
In 1970 the group broke up.
Each of musicians found success in an independent musical career. McCartney and Starr remain active.
John Lennon was shot in New York outside his own house on December 8th, 1980. George Harrison died of cancer on the 29th of November in 2001, at the age of 58. Paul McCartney who used to sing and play bass for the Beatles, established his own group called Wings, which played for ten years. In 1991 he also wrote his first piece of classical music called the Liverpool Oratorio. Paul's daughter Stella is a top British fashion designer.
When and where was the group born? Why was “The Beatles” so popular? Who was its members? Who was the leader of the group? What were its famous songs? How did the newspapers call the histeria around this group? The singers were always good-looking, weren`t they?
