Focus - A to Z Challenge

Tribute to the letter B
The Beatles

Right now my mind is going back to when my kids were young and watching Sesame Street and a band is singing the song "Letter B " to the tune of Let It Be, by the Beatles. There were so many subjects and things that start with the letter B that I could have blogged about, but none would stand out like the Beatles.

I am sure almost every one of us knows a lot about the Beatles already. I lived in England for two years and as much as I would have liked to visit Liverpool, (where the Beatles originally formed their group), my husband chickened out saying that that was a city where he does not like to drive. Oh well, I know that it would not hurt them if a couple of fans did not make it to their city.

They received numerous awards including seven Grammy's, 15 Ivor Novellos (songwriters and composers awards) and they were number twenty in the list of one hundred influential people of the century in one of  the Time Magazine issue.

The Beatles were my favorite band as a teenager. I still love their music. Great B word.

Cute blog. The Beatles weren't my favorite band but I did enjoy many of their songs. I think I liked Paul's music better after the beatles, but I did love Let It Be.

Hello Munir, this is really great and entertaining. The performance of the Sesame Street gang was a real delight. You have picked the perfect B. I enjoyed your post.

I fell in love with The Beatles when I was in high school. I started playing bass and was learning songs by different bands. When I began learning how they wrote songs I was blown away. Still am. Great "B"!

the Beatles were the group that really made rock and pop music significant to me. Great choice for the letter B.
