Four lads from Liverpool had the world in their thrall in the 60`s. Decades later, they`re exercising the same kind of magic.
`1` by the Beatles (EMI)
They were simply known as the `Fab Four`. John, Paul, Ringo and George- no second names needed. Together, the four Liverpudlians created music that has remained part of the cultural index for generations. Their music defined a generation and bestowed legendary status on the four musicians. Their songs often strung out on simple melody hooks captured the imagination of millions all over the world. And now comes a compilation of their 27 number 1 hits. Every single one of these 27 songs is part of our living memory, each one notable for its infectious melody and lyrical style.
The songs on this album would make it to any music critic`s list of the top songs in this century. Just listen to this list and then decide for yourself: `I Want to Hold your hand`; `Hard Day`s Night`; `Love Me Do`; `Can`t Buy Me Love`; `Ticket to Ride`; `Help`; Yesterday`; `Yellow Submarine`; Eleanor Rigby`; Hey Jude`; `She Loves You` et al.
Rating: Classic and timeless. If you`re not going to buy it, I assure you your parents will. 5 decades down and the foursome still rule. They`re indisputably my number `1`.
