Remember that first time the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan?

I was 16 and in love with Paul. I had to babysit at a neighbor's in Cutler Ridge, Miami, Fl where I lived and I could hardly stand waiting through that day until the Ed Sullivan show. When the Beatles finally came on I was at home watching with my family and I was totally quiet and sweating. I'd never felt like that before! It is amazing how emotional I could feel over a tv appearance. I try to remember that feeling when I see kids today excited about their favorite star.I didn't care if John was married! I wanted to marry Paul!

WHERE WERE YOU and WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER ABOUT THAT FIRST ED SULLIVAN SHOW?

Name Age My Memories
Todd45My brother and I sat on the staircase and saw the Beatles perform. The next year we moved to Jordan. When we came back, the Beatles were EVERYWHERE! I remember seeing the on the television and thinking "They are cool!".

My mother never did let me have a Beatlecut. When I went to college, I decided to grow my hair longer than I wanted to in the beginning. I wonder if they inspired me to be such a hippie?
Hannah50I was thirteen when the show aired. It was then that I fell in love with them. Paul was always my favorite . . . how silly he was with his left-handed guitar!

I was a Beatles fan even when the popularity died down. I buy lots of their posters, still, and everytime I see a picture of one of them in a shop window I go inside.

I remember going to a concert of theirs in Dallas (I lived there.) and having to pay my parents back for all of the money it cost for a ticket.

I had a bad seat, but I fought my way to the front. I must have been the only one there NOT screaming. I think Paul saw me, and I KNOW that John had to. He looked angry and I held up a picture of him and pointed to it. Whether he payed any attention to me or not, I don't know.

I even dated three Beatle look-alikes in college. Two Pauls and a Ringo.
clem noriega49I remember I was about when the Beatles were first on Ed Sullivan.I was in my room and my dad said "hey come here!" and pointed to the TV. This was the first of the three appearances on Ed's Show. The first time I saw them nothing happened...the next week BAM! Beatlemania stuck me and I've been a fan ever since!!!
Hylarie15I don't remember when Ed Sullivan came on or what the Beatles sung. You know why? Look at my age! I am only 15 and in love with the Beatles! I think that it is unfair how the Beatles get treated today! People listed to today's junk and call the Beatles old farts! That burns me up! Well, I would like to see them, so you know how there are reruns on tv for everything else? Well, let's see Ed Sullivan! I never do! Well, I seen them on VH1 one time, but I want to see the Beatles!!!!! All of the others who never had that chance would agree with me! I would write down my memories but time would not allow me to experience them! And that hurts!
Kat13I've been a Beatles fan since birth. My obsession with the Beatles has led to a few other obsessions, such as England and the 60s. Today one of the cast members of the play I'm in looked at my Macca concert T-shirt and said, "Ewww, he's old and gross!" I get that all the time. All my life I've wished that I could have been a part of Beatlemania when it was cool. When I found out that my Grandmother had seen the Fabs on Ed Sullivan back in Feb. '64, I nearly died. Then I bombarded her with questions. Her responses were overwhelmingly that it was an unremarkable event in her life. But just a few weeks ago, I was flipping through the sattelite channel guide, and Red Skelton was on PBS. My father loves Red Skelton and never gets to watch him, so I popped a tape in. I noticed that next they were showing a re-run of Ed Sullivan. I was almost too darn lazy to press the four buttons that it took to pull up the info, thinking, "What are the odds?" But I did. And the info said, "The Beatles." EEEEEEK!!! For the first time, I was able to fall into the 60s. For the first time, I actually felt like it was "cool" to be watching them, the hot new band from Britain with that evil, rebellious long hair. I don't know if I'll ever get that feelig again, because when I rolled the tape back and watched it again, I was still a geek from 2002 who likes old, dead guys. I'm not sure I want it to happen again, though. It was a pretty cool experience. I want it to stay special.
Tina S.16Unfortunately I was born in the wrong era and was unable to witness the unique sociological phenomenon of the Beatles 1st appearance on Ed Sullivan. But, I was able to buy the video of The First U.S. Visit and watched all of the Beatles Ed Sullivan appearances. I love the Beatles and I love Ed and I know that I every time I watch I feel like I'm in another world. Ed comes out and says his bit and then out come the Beatles! They sing right to me and I sing right back. It's great. I'm sure that if I had seen it for the first time in 1964, I would have been absolutely nuts, but thanks to videos, I can watch it over and over!
Jesse13Sad as it is, I also never experienced the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. I did, however, get to see the shows in 2001, when I bought the Anthology set and the First US Visit. The memories live on for me, and each time I revisit the magical days of Btlemania, I love them more and more. When they hit the stage with All My Loving on 2/9/64, the doors were opened to new and unchartered success, and when I heard them hit thew stage on Ed Sullivan, doors were opened for me to become a Beatles fan for life. (I had been before, but it was the first Ed Sullivan Show that inspired me to collect more and more, and got me to my strong obsession today.)
DCAREYI REMBEBER THE FRIDAY BEFORE ED SULLIVAN ALL THE BOYS AT SCHOOL HAD THEIR HAIR COMB BACK, THE FOLLOWING MONDAY COMING BACK TO SCHOOL THEY HAD THEIR HAIR COMBED FORWARD LIKE THE BEATLES, SEEING THE BEATLES ON ED SULLIVAN WOKE ME UP AND CHANGE BY LIFE FOREVER. THEY TOOK MY BREATH AWAY, I HAVE HAD BEATLEMAINIA SINCE THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW. AND THAT HAS BEEN MANY YEARS AGO. I LOVE THEM MORE TODAY THAN EVER, ONCE YOU GET BEATLEMANIA ITS FOR EVER, EVERY TIME YOU HEAR ONE OF THEIR SONGS IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF WHAT YOU WERE DOING WHEN YOU FIRST HEARD THE SONG. THANK YOU ED SULLIVAN FOR GIVING US THE BEATLES.
ANN28I was born to late =( wahhhhhhhh my mom and her borther say them there thats so cool!!!!!!!!!! my whole family loves em not my grand pa lol.
Patsy49I remember my sister and I watching the Beatles on a little black and white tv. I fell in love with them instantly, especially John. I have the DVD "The Beatles First US Visit" and I never get tired of watching that performance. I honestly consider it one of the highlights of my life.
Terry46I can still hear Ed Sullivan say those magic words..."Here they are...THE BEATLES!!". I was mesmorized and to be honest with you I still am. I even sell Beatle collectables for a living just to be near the fun that they bring back to me. I must have seen "HARD DAYS NIGHT" at least 50 times. I got to see Paul in concert in 1989 and it was a trip I'll never forget. Its true our bodies do age but if you look in Paul's eyes you can still see him singing "AND I LOVE HER" in the movie. The fun and magic that was The Beatles is still VERY much alive and Im honored to say I was there when it was born. Hey John, Paul, George, and Ringo.... thanks for the memories!
Katie Webb14I sadly did not experience the first time they were on in 1964. I wasn't born around then. Years and years later when I was three my mom got out "The Beatles: Their first trip to America". I watched them perform in awe. Me at the time thought they were the best band in the world. I ran around and screamed like the person that watched it in 1964. Little did I know (1)It was 1964 not 1990, (2) I didn't realize any of them were dead (when my mom told me my favorite was dead I denied it. "How could a guy like that with such cool music could die under circumstances only an idiot can imagine?") Sadly that was the sad truth. I'm glad when I thought they were mondern. It was before I mourned about it (which I do sadly).
Katt Kidwell13Mom says I was born in the wrong decade. I don't doubt it! She told me about when she was 9 years old and saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show. (Unfortunately her parents never let her scream at The Beatles, but I'm aloud to as long as I don't suffocate.) You would not believe how shocked I was when I first watched the Anthology and there it was! One of the greatest 10 minutes in US history! I shrieked just like everyone else. If I had to pick any time to travel back to, then 9-2-64 would probably be it. Fortunately I've had the chance to see a live Beatles concert (not televised, in CT!)- even if it was only one of them.
Kevin43I actually didn't see the Beatles on Ed Sullivan until their third appearance in Feb. 1964
I was only four at that time, but I do remember it very clearly. My big sister was (and still is) ten years older than me. Since she loved the Beatles, of course I had to hate them! That's the job of any younger brother isn't it, to aggrivate your older sister?
As a result, I absoutely refused to watch the first two weeks. However, with having to listen to the music as she played it, they eventually won me over, and I watched the third week. As so many people know, their first glimpse of The Beatles playing on Ed Sullivan is an image burned into our minds as one of the stand out moments in our lives. I remember that moment, it was just a couple weeks later than everyone else!
Lyle P.49I had to beg my parents to watch and they finally gave in. My father didn't care for Elvis so I can imagine he didn't care for the Beatles either although I don't remember him saying anything bad about them. I think my mother might have coaxed him into letting me watch them on the Ed Sullivan show that night in 1964. I was mesmerized! My father had a guitar in the house as he played country and western music, so I began to teach myself guitar shortly after that show. I still play guitar to this day and I'm still a die-hard Beatles fan.
Tera H.16Well, I am another unfortunate person who was born at the wrong time. I have saw one of The Beatles' performances on Ed Sullivan, but I'm not sure which one it was. I was first introduced to The Beatles when the Anthology series was aired on TV. I was 9 at the time and my mom asked me to watch it with her. I wasn't expecting much, so I almost didn't watch it, but she made me anyway. Well, from the first moment I saw them, I was hooked.I told my best friend about The Beatles the next day at school. She listned to some of the music, then she was hooked, too. The Beatles are responsible for my passion for music. After I saw the Anthology series, I knew that someday I wanted to have a band just like The Beatles.
Katie13Hylarie, I agree totatlly! I wish I lived in the 60's and I wished I could see the Beatles toady! It's sad. And the stuff they listen to today... Ach it's so bad... Sorry I sound like some old person but it's true! I did go to a Beatlemania concert, I had an AMAZING time. It was like going back in time, and they were great at being the Beatles. Maybe you could try that, Hylarie, as a sort of Beatles concert of today.
Sorry I can't share my memeroies, but, hey, I'm only thirteen!
Sam13I remeber a while back, when I was not a Beatles fan, channel surfin' thru some satillite channels at a friends house and the Ed Sullivan show came on and unfortuately I missed the intro and just saw 'em signin' but right after that I was like, "Waoh! Who are THEY?? They're, like, SOOOOO coool!!!" and my friend was just like, "Right....And you are aware that they're from the '60's right??"
Well, I really didn't care....And since then, I've been a Beatles fan...
There's my story, sorry it sucks, I'm not good at writing stuff. :P
dean48the first i saw of the beatles was actually on the jack paar show,which evolved into the tonight
show with johnny carson.it was a 60 second video of a then unheard band from england called the beatles.i remember jack parr was like almost treating them like a joke or a novelty act.little did anyone know how that band of 4 mop-topped young man would change the world.the beatles have affected my life like nothing else.i am still hearing new things in the music,especially when analyzing their lyrics.paul is top notch at creating cool bass lines.john wrote the most profound lyrics in rock history.george was a great guitarist and ringo never missed a beat.i think the beatles are fantastic and i never get tired of listening to their music.

Sarah12Well unfortuneatly I was only born in 1990, so I couldn't experience Beatlemania. But I've been seriously obsessed with the Beatles ever since I was formed inside my mom. LOL, but really I have been obsessed with them for the looooooongest time. I wish I could have experienced Beatlemania, and their Ed Sullivan Show performance, and all the other stuff that they did. Hardly anybody in my family likes the Beatles, except my aunt Cathy, and my 10 year old brother David likes them a little bit too. Well, gotta go now!!

One Beatles fan to all Beatles fans,
*!*Sarah*!*
Garreth Ashley18When I first saw The Beatles on Ed Sullivan I was captivated by there stage presents. It was one of the best moments in my life.
Rick49 I was born Feb 10,1954. Feb 9, 1964, when the Beatles first performed on Ed Sullivan, was the day my family decided to celebrate my 10th birthday. Since I was the birthday boy I got to watch the Show with the sound jacked all the way up! I still get goosebumps when I see the tape and Ed screaming, "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE BEATLES!" What really ticked me off was that you could hardly hear the songs because of the girls screaming in the audience. This was the first of three appearances in a row by the Fabs. I remember the next week, while they were performing, the camera focused on them one at a time with their name displayed on the screen. When they came to Lennon it said. "John Lennon (Sorry girls, he's married). My girls (25 and 21 now) grew up as Beatle fans and it's great to see all the teens who still love their music.
Favorite songs, the psychedelic ones. "A Day in the Life" from Sgt Pepper and "Tomorrow Never Knows" from Revolver.
Mario L. Rodriguez38I really had wished that I could have seen The Beatles in 1964 0n their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show but I was Born in 1965 but I'm a huge Beatlefan since 1968 to this day and have collected a lot of stuff on these four bandmates who changed popular music forever and how awsome that their music keeps going on and on. I do relive their music with a very popular band in Southern California called The Fab Four.I enjoy hearing live Beatle music it's fab and brings back a lot of memories for me.
Dani19Like some other entries, I unfortunately did not see the Beatles perform on the Ed Sullivan Show (WAH!) but when Anthology 1 was aired on TV in '95 my mom taped it and now I can watch it anytime I want! You could sense the excitement from the crowd (as well as the 73 million Americans watching elsewhere!) and when Ed said "Ladies & gentlemen...THE BEATLES!!" I knew it was a magical moment not just for music, for all popular culture. They were so adorable on stage singing classics like "She Loves You" and "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." It's not fair, I should have been there! (or at least at home, watching it with my family). Sometimes they show bits of that historical day on MuchMoreMusic (Canada's MTV) and I jump up and down, screaming along (if no one else is home!) I am a born-again hippie and the 60s will always be my favourite decade. Sunday, February 9th, 1964 will live in my heart (and VCR) forever!
Izzy15i remember when my friend first showed me a Beatles music video a few years ago. i was floored, and ever since then, i've been addicted to the Beatles. i'm even in a (non-look-a-like) tribute band called "walrus" ("i am the walrus ^_^')

*Izzy*
Lauren44 When I was five, my father had us watch the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. He also bought the album.My 3 other siblings and I listened endlessly to the songs. We also used our plastic bowling pins as guitars, drums,& bass and lip sync'd to their songs. My dad also took to see the movie " A Hard Day's Night". I was in love with Ringo...I thought there would be less competition with him.
When I was married, my dad also picked the song "Till There Was You" as our dance...you know instead of Daddy's Little Girl. Whenever I hear this song it really gets me choked up.
wane jalters14i couldent believe it when someone in my class said thay haited the beatles me and my friend totally backfired on him its not possible to hate them i fell inlove with them after learning about them i didnt experience beatlemainia but i have a good idea gorge is hot paul is tallented john has awsome style and ritchard has amazimg vibe. i love them to death in someways im glad im not alive in there time because i would be so onbsesed!! I LOVE YOU BEATLES!!!
Tom Chambers56I was 17 at the time, a junior in high school. I remember my mother and I huddled together before a small, black-and-white TV. We weren't quite sure what to make of them since their style and act were so different from what we (particularly, my mother) had seen before. But, I do remember liking them and their music and later, particularly, as a college student, I collected their albums, and followed their evolutionary process. At the time ... and maybe until now and forever ... they influenced me (and others) greater than my educators in college. The passing of Lennon and Harrison was traumatic for me, and the anticipation of McCartney's and Starr's deaths is a travesty. Because when the Beatles are gone, I'll probably be gone, too!
dan16the beatles are steal cool and always will be because they are the best band in the world.
son_et_lumiere03@hotmail.com15My first love was music, or shall i say my first love was the beatles...still are actually. my older brother indroduced me to the beatles, My first reaction when he asked my if i've heard them was "who names their band the beatles?" All he replied was trust me you'll love them. Ever since, I always playing their cd's in the car, He would be playing their songs on his guitar and singing. His voice sounded so much like pauls...crazy. I remember one road trip to AZ from CA we played 8 different beatle cd's and me and my two brothers would each play different parts and sing the whole song...it was one of my best memories.
Ever since my brother died...two years ago, I can't help but love them, there's a lot of cary in every beatle song that I listen to, it just makes me feel that much closer. I dont think this is what you were expecting to hear but i started off with the intention of only sharing with you what my brother had said..."Paul McCartney is the HEART of the beatles, but John Lennon IS the SOUL" It sounds so true considering all the breath taking songs such as imagine. Some of my favorites would have to be Strawberry fields, Nowhere Man, Elignor Rigby, Imagine, Dont want to spoil the party so i'll go (reminds me of cary),Hey Jude, The Walrus, and of course All you need is LOVE. Actually i have a pin that has the logo, i have about 15 beatles pins, all their records and cd's including yoko, and Jr.Lennon, Beatle puzzles and only about 6 of their posters...mmmm rubber soul~ Well last of all i'd just love to say that i'm going to indroduce the beatles to my kids and so on and so forth...I'll never let them die.
M. Colangelo31I was not alive yet, obviously, but my father was. He was dating my mother and was with her and her parents in Miami on vacation. He was rushing to meet them for dinner when he said a wild looking caravan of convertibles passed him and pulled off at the beach. He followed and found the Beatles in bathing suits, bathrobes and even toting camers. Fortunately, my father being an avid photographer, had his camera and snapped off a roll. I am now the owner of 4 very good color slides of the fab four. One is very similar to Bill Eppridge B&W Life magazine cover of the Beatles standing in the water, but in color. Two are of Ringo posing with random bathing suit beauties.
The sad part of the story is that according to the frame numbers on the slides. There should be at least 20 more shots that my dad thinks he threw away years ago.
martin day (lefty harrison)15well.....i wernt born then.
i first herd them when i was 12,it was a tribute band on tv singin help...my mum said ive got that song...she gave it 2 me and ive been a hell of a big fan since, ive been told i look a bit like george so im gonna be a tribute 2 him. every day there is something about the beatles...weather it is on tv, radio, news paper or some1 just saying about them. they will never be forgoten....they will always be in our harts....no matter what the kids of today think....they just dont no good music when they hear it.
Jeff49There's an interesting article in today's Washington Post about a comedy duo who were booked on "The Ed Sullivan Show" on February 9, 1964, the night the Beatles made their American debut. One interesting tidbit is about a "weird-looking kid" knocking at their dressing room door and asking for a coke.

Ken Coates51I had just turned 11. I don't remember who else
was in the livingroom watching the TV but my
younger brother must have been there and very
likely our mom and dad as well.

The Beatles were electrifying! There's never been
another phenomenon quite like this. What I find
amazing is that the Beatles' popularity has
crossed the generational boundaries, and most of
my teenage son's generation seems to appreciate
the group as much as we senior citizens do. Well,
ALMOST as much.
ace48i remember those great shows and i really miss them i watch the beatles playing all my loving that's my strongest memory
michelle v17so many young kids are writing so i am too! i love the beatles, i think its my parents that influenced me cuz they named me after a beatles song! they always would listen to it when i was growing up, and my mom saw them in concert when they went to the philippines (thats where she lived).. i am excited to see the 40th anniversary where they are showing the original preformance tomorrow! i want to see the beatles like everyone else did! rip john lennon and george harrison
Paulette54I was so excited as I sat in front of my Black and White TV waiting for them to appear. I felt like I was there. My best friend and I saw every movie when it came to the theater and bought every album. She loved John and I was a Paul fan. The Beatles made my teen years the best years. You often hear people from that era saying how much they hated their teen years, not me. They were great. Don't get me wrong I love my life, but it is great reminising about the '60s and the fun we had. We straightened our hair and tried to talk and act like we were British. I must admit we did fool a few people. I still have my Beatles scrap book and original photos of when they appeared in Toronto. My kids love to look at it.
Walt Van Tine50I was sitting in front of our blonde-wood 50's-style, black-and white TV set, holding a small reel-to-reel tape recorder I had received for Christmas. I played that tape over and over for months!
Mairi13Of course, being a second-generation Beatlemaniac, I wasn't around to experience The Beatles appear on The Ed Sullivan Show for the first time. However, I did watch the DVD and found it quite hilarious that the Beatlegirls were screaming, jumping up and down, and just plain going bonkers, while their boyfriends (who they probably dragged along with them) don't look too happy to see their ladies falling for these long-haired fellas from Liverpool. :)
lefty harrison15happy birthday george

god rest ur soul
Isabel Ortega15I wasn't born yet when The Beatles[ THE GREATEST BAND TO EVER EXIST ] appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. About four years ago, on PBS, they showed clips of some of the best Ed Sullivan Show Moments. When I heard the word Beatles, I turned up the volume. The Beatles started singing I Want To Hold Your Hand!EEEK! I really, really, really love the Beatles[ and Wings, too] and I hope that I get to meet Sir Paul, Ringo, or Dhani[ The late George Harrison's HUNKY son].
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
I LOVE THE BEATLES!
Kenny49I remember saving my allowance- not for some toy,but for a record. It was "Meet the Beatles". I was nuts about them. I lived in Grand Prairie, Texas in '64.,a Dallas suburb, and I was 9 years old. I made my own Beatles scrap book, always called in to KLIF, the then local rock station to try and win all this beatles stuff. I actually won a beatles book, with all these great never seen before photos- Man I wish Ihad all that stuff now! Anyway this is all before I knew about the Beatles being booked on the Ed Sullivan show, so when I found out they were, I just about freaked out. No pictures or photos, the actual Beatles LIVE on TV! I begged my mom to stay up late to watch them (next day was a school day!)and she said NO! ONLY KIDDING! So I counted the days. We did'nt have a TV so me and my mom walked down the street to my friend Kevin's house,where everyone was waiting in front of a small black and white TV. My anticipation was just about at the boiling point. Finally Sullivan yells out something like "Here they are THE BEATLES! I don't think Iv'e ever been so transfixed to a TV screen. Iv'e never been good at showing outward emotions, and later my mom said I was completly motionless with my eyes the size of saucers. It was a time I'll never forget. The Beatles had a special magic about them that's hard to explain unless you were there. Iv'e been in many bands since then,and watching Ringo play on that Sunday nite so long ago had alot to do with the fact that I still play drums to this day,and still love to play alot of Beatle songs on my acoustic guitar. Life would'nt have been the same without them. Chow!


ALAN MASON40I'M FROM ENGLAND AND WAS ONLY TWO MONTHS OLD IN FEBRUARY '64, SO I WASN'T AROUND TO EXPERIENCE THE EXCITEMENT OF THE BEATLES FIRST APPEARANCES ON THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW. HOWEVER, I'VE RECENTLY PURCHASED 'THE FIRST U.S. VISIT' DVD AND I CAN TELL YOU I COULD STILL FEEL THAT ELECTRICITY, EVEN 40 YEARS AND FOREIGN COUNTRY REMOVED!

AFTER HAVING WATCHED THE SHOWS, I REALLY FOUND YOUR EXPERIENCES INTERESTING TO READ AND IT BROUGHT THE WHOLE THING INTO EVEN GREATER FOCUS FOR ME. THANK YOU.

I'M MAKING MY FIRST U.S VISIT SOMETIME IN SEPTEMBER - PROBABLY NEW YORK CITY AND WASHINGTON - SO I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOUR COUNTRY. SHOULDN'T THINK THERE'LL BE THOUSANDS OF SCREAMING FANS WAITING FOR ME AT JFK, THOUGH. WHAT A PITY!!
Leah Smith14I wasn't alive them ,but my parents tell me stories about how terrific they were and how they were watching the Ed Sullivan show that night. All the memories they have about them. The first time my dad introduced me to them was when I was about six, I loved them then and do today.
mike marquart51my mom was in the hospital and my brother and i were staying at my grandparents. I was 11 at the time and had a 16 year old aunt who was crazy about the Beatles and couldn't wait for that sunday night to get here. My brother and i wanted to go play, but she made us set and watch ed sullivan that night to see the Beatles. that night changed the world and me. I became a Beatle fanatic that night and have been ever since. Thank god she made me set and watch them or i would still be regretting if i hadn't
matt schuett50I am the beatles biggest fan i went to every concert in america and england. i was at the ed sullivan show i fainted 2 times and i when i woke up i was spellbound and backstage with john lennon!!!!!!
Boyd53For those of us who grew up in the sixties, there was the day before the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show and the day after. Everything changed.

I was living in Seattle Washington when "I Want to Hold Your Hand" was being played on KJR. I really wasn't quite sure about this "different sounding music. Someone showed me a picture of them and I remember thinking "these guys need a haircut". That was about two weeks before the "really big shooo".

I spent the next 5 years fighting with my parents to grow my hair long!
Natasha Zitkovich12Unfortunately, I wasn't born in the Beatles era, and it is so very depressing, but i am still a very big Beatlemaniac. When I was younger, there was not so much stuff about the Beatles, but now they are all starting to come back into popularity. I have been in love with the Beatles ever since I was born, because my mom always listens to them. All these kids at my school say that i am retarted when they find out that i am a beatlemaniac, but i just think they are kind of retarted for not liking them, and i also feel kind of sorry for them. Well, thats enough of what i have to say. so long, and peace!
Tabitha English12I am so very sad that i wasnt born in the Beatles time, because then i mightve gotten to see them, but i am happy that they are now coming back into popularity. I LOVE THE BEATLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
bye bye, now.
