How many of us from the baby boomer generation listen to a Beatle’s song and memories flood our spirit, our heart, and our soul? The flower child within us comes alive again. How many of us as teenagers listened to, “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” and dreamed of that special person we wanted to in-twine our fingers with?
Loves, relationships, reminiscences, are brought alive by the music that touched us during specific events of our lifetime. The video attached about the Beatles is nothing short of genius. It was created in Waukomis, Oklahoma by Hugh Hairs. To watch this you must turn up the sound on your computer, pour yourself a fine glass of wine, and remember. Remember your youth, your loves, your dreams, your fears, your ideas, and your desire to change the world. This video takes you from the beginning of the Beatles journey to the end with beautiful imagery of postcards collected by the producer of this show. It also contains Ringo Star’s postcard collection all choreographed to Beatle songs. Record sleeves of the early Beatles albums are also showcased. John Lennon’s nude photo of he and Yoko Ono, that was taken the day of his tragic death, Dec. 8th, 1980, is included in this outstanding work. Seems like yesterday when we were all in shock by the news of his death. It is fortunate that John Lennon’s work and the music of the Beatles lives on to be shared with this generation. There is so much to discover in the words of their music.
