Long Time Ago When They Was Fab

Jane and Tom, both 68 years old, were talking about Beatle Paul on his 77th birthday as they listened intensely to all his albums. 

 

 

“Besides Lennon, of course, he’s never been topped,” said Jane.

 

“I remember having gone plum out of my Mind when the ‘Please Please Me’ single was RELEASED in ’63,” said Tom.

 

 

“Aah,” his smitten wife gushed.  “I was stark raging Bananas over it’s B~side, ‘From Me To You.'”

 

 

The went on listening to all their favorite songs from their youth.

 

 

For that day, it was ‘All Those Years Ago.’

        What I didn’t say is that I actually saw them also when I was 13. Somehow I got two tickets when they played Empire Stadium in Vancouver Canada. I was one of the screaming young girls pushing up against the metal barriers. Lucky I didn’t get suffocated….. My favorite was Paul but then as the years went on it became John…..such great memories

    Seems we went in similar direction today. I like your six, and I can’t wait to see the movie Yesterday. Looks so good, and at the least the music will be GRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT!

    Great take on the prompt.
    Although I was never idolized the Beatles themselves, I did like many of their songs. I agree with UP that the movie, Yesterday, sounds great.

    How well I remember thinking my sister and her friends were insane for screaming at the Beatles movie. I’m thinking “why bother, they can’t hear you.” Who knew I’d be dancing to Hey Jude repeatedly at the dance my first love djed?

    There is a movie coming out (should I say, being released?) this week called Yesterday. The previews look cute–what would happen if no one on earth remembered The Beatles, except one person? Of course he is a musician and rises to the top suddenly with all the hits. Fun Six!

    I have spent the last few days working with WordPress and Akismet techies to figure out why my comments on your post and several other WordPress blogs decided to vanish into thin air. It was so frustrating! But I believe we have it fixed now and I wanted to drop back by to let you know that I enjoyed your story! Being of the age that I grew up with the Beatles music, this brought back sweet memories. My husband and I often talk about the “old times” and the beloved tunes and artists now relegated to the category of “Oldies”. Well done!

      Thanks I’m so very sorry about your comment problems. I’m a bit young for their era, having been born in ’59, but I’ve always been smitten with ’60’s music, especially the Beatles. Brian Epstein was right about their having been good and popular enough to be remembered even into the next century.
