  1. Saw them live in 1964 in Brisbane, have always and will always love The Beatles. My favourite song is Here Comes The Sun, why? Because when I hear it, something wonderful happens to me, hard to explain but that is why it is my favourite even though I love ALL their songs! 🎶🐞⭐️🎶💓

    • Just as well most people don’t share your view. They appreciate what talent made the Beatles. After all these years they are still being voted as best song etc. I think last year six of their songs came first..not bad..

    • Beryl Anderson simply saying i don’t appreciate their type of music. not saying anything against them and those who like them.
