  3. Beatles is one great band. I used to listen to their songs when I was a kid. My hubby is not a fan of Beatles. He said he don't like their songs. He like the Beach Boys because he said they sing decent songs.

  5. My hubby loves Beatles so much. He has a collection of all Beatles songs and we even watched "Rain" (a play about Beatles) in Broadway. That's how much my hubby loves that band. I on the other hand, cannot seem to warm up on Beatles. Not sure why... ;)

  17. The Beatles' songs are classics and will live forever. I have lots of fave Beatles songs- Yesterday, Let It Be, Hey Jude, to name a few. Right now, as I'm reading your blog my mind's singing Strawberry Fields, just because I went to the strawberry farm in Baguio 2 weeks ago. :)
