I’d like to introduce myself.My name is Kate. I live inPerm. I’m a student of the9th form of school 44. I likemusic very much. One ofmy favourite groups is the«Beatles».When I listen totheir music it makes methink about harmony,beauty and love in my life.
I’d like to tell youabout the Beatlesbecause the impact ofthe Beatles is simplyincalculable. Asmusicians, theyproved that rock androll could embrace alimitless variety ofharmonies, structuresand sounds; theyinaugurated the era ofself-contained bands,and forevercentralized popmusic.

George Harrison, February25, 1943 The drummer Ringo Starr, July 7, 1940
As a unit, theywere a musicallysynergisticcombination: PaulMcCartney’smelodic basslines, Ringo Starr’slaphappy no-rolls drumming,George Harrison’srocabilly-styleguitar leads, JohnLennon’s assertiverhythm guitar –and their fourfervent voices.
Per Aspera Ad Astra Made up of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, the Beatles were just ordinary lads from Liverpool. And they didn’t become famous overnight, as many people think. They worked hard to become successful.The group become nationally famous in England in October1962, when their first single, Love Me Do, entered the HitParade at number 27.
The Beatle’s concertswere a great success inall countries: Germany,France, the USA, etc. The release of «I want to hold your hand» in 1964 marked the beginning of the phenomenon known as «Beatlemania» in the United States.
During the sixties, it seemed that the Beatles were always in the new headlines. They made successful records and interesting films.The first film, the innovative «AHard Days night» (1964), wasreceived enthusiastically by a wideaudience that included many whohad never before listened to rockmusic.
In the early 1970s, theBeatles finally decided tobreak up. Lennon becamea solo performer, wrote abook and took part inmany different activities.McCartney formed a newpop group called «Wings».George Harrison wasrarely seen, but spent timeraising money for charity.Ringo Starr began asurprisingly successfulcareer as a film star. Theywere seen together lessand less often.
Although many fans hoped there would be a reunion, thisbecame impossible with the tragic murder of John Lennon inNew York in 1980.
If you ask someone in England, «What’s the greatest pop album of all times?», the answer will almost certainly be: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.When it was released in June 1967, it was an instant hit., withboth the public and the critics. It spent 23 weeks at the top of thealbum charts!
Amazing facts:• There are more than 70 famous people on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album.• The Beatles used as many as 49 instruments while recording the album• Paul McCartney wrote the song When I’m Sixty- Four when he was sixteen years old
I listen to theBeatles songs every «All my loving»day. I decided tolearn to play theguitar. I can playand sing some ofthe Beatles songs.
I completely agree with VictoriyaBryulo:«Why I do love the Beatles?»–- For John Lennon’s independence,- Paul McCartney’s brightness,- George Harrison’s purposefulness,- Ringo Starr’s ingenuousness!Their music is worth playing andsinging FOREVER!
