MNTB Greatest Lyrics – Hey Jude

The Beatles “Hey Jude” was written by Paul McCartney in 1968 as the first single from their very own label, Apple Records. The song evolved from “Hey Jules” which was written for John Lennon’s son Julian during John and Cynthia Lennons divorce. It spent nine weeks as number one in the U.S.

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey Jude, don’t be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain,
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Hey Jude, don’t let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin,
You’re waiting for someone to perform with.
And don’t you know that it’s just you, hey Jude, you’ll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you’ll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh.

Na na na, na na na na, na na na, hey Jude…

Beatles Museum by Private Collector

It’s the only museum on The Beatles that belongs to a private collector. Rodolfo Vazquez opened his personal collection museum at The Plaza in downtown Buenos Aires that has over 8,500 Beatles memorabilia. Everything from photos to clothing and even a box of condoms that have Yoko Ono and John Lennon’s image. Um that’s kinda weird!

MNTB Greatest Lyrics – Imagine

Imagine there’s no Heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

1966 Beatles Press Conference

A 14-minute reel-to-reel tape recording of the August 17, 1996 press conference by The Beatles at the King Edward Hotel in Toronto is up for auction at Bonhams & Butterfields. This is the recording of where John Lennon said the band was more popular than Jesus. The tapes were made by a young photojournalist who attended the press conference. He tried to sell them back in 1966 but nobody cared for them so they sat in a drawer for over 40 years. It’s reported to sell between $20k to $25k at the June 13th auction in Los Angeles.

Sotheby’s is auctioning off the handwritten lyrics to “A Day in the Life” written by John Lennon on June 18th. It’s not the final draft but it has Lennon’s sketch of what became the actual song. Sotheby’s doesn’t think it will surpass the $1 million mark the handwritten lyrics to “All You Need is Love” did back in 2005 but think it should be somewhere between $500,000 to $700,000.

Yoko Ono Book Coming

The freak known as Yoko Ono will be writing a book on her life with John Lennon.  Apparently she will be writing about her relationship with John and to clear up the belief that she was behind the breakup of The Beatles.  She says “I would love to do it.  I just have to find the time.  It will be my next book, which will be written in the next five years.”

Ya because you’re so busy with your horrible music.  I just don’t like her!
