BIOGRAFíA

El grupo más importante de la historia del rock. Su aparición modificó por completo la
significación de la música popular en todas sus vertientes, configurando una nueva etapa que
trocaría por completo la expresión artística presente y futura, otorgando a la música popular
un valor trascendental en las pautas lúdicas y socioculturales de la sociedad contemporánea.
Su talento como autores, desarrollado en una intensa trayectoria repleta de evolución y
originalidad, con una constante reinvención sónica, moldeó las bases claves de la
composición pop y rock e impulsó una mímesis creativa en sus coetáneos, ejerciendo una
inmensa influencia en cualquier grupo formado a raíz de su surgimiento.

Cuando el 6 de julio de 1957 Paul McCartney (nacido el 18 de junio de 1942 en Liverpool) se


unió a los Quarry Men, un grupo de jóvenes rockeros liderados por John Lennon (nacido el 9
de octubre de 1940 en Liverpool), ninguno de los dos podía imaginar lo que esa asociación
proporcionaría al desarrollo musical del siglo XX.
Tras hacer una prueba de audición en el patio de la iglesia de Woolton y compartir gustos por
Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran, Little Richard, Lonnie Donegan o Gene Vincent, Paul sería
admitido como nuevo miembro de la citada formación de skiffle en calidad de guitarrista.
Unos meses después, en febrero de 1958, otro guitarrista llamado George Harrison (nacido el
25 de febrero de 1943 en Liverpool), amigo del barrio de McCartney, también se integraría en
los Quarry Men, quienes tenían como batería a Ken Brown.
El 29 de agosto de 1959 debutan en el Casbah, un local propiedad de Mo Best, cuyo hijo Pete
(nacido el 24 de noviembre de 1941 en Madras, India) toca la batería. Pete y Brown formarían
meses después el grupo The Blackjacks.
Tras diversos abandonos en la formación, Harrison, Lennon y McCartney adoptarían el
nombre de Johnny & The Moondogs, nombre que cambiarían poco después por el de Long
John & The Silver Beatles.
Este apelativo más tarde se recortaría a The Silver Beatles, para finalmente hacerse llamar The
Beatles.
Realmente y antes de llamarse The Beatles, la banda se hacía llamar The Silver Beetles, pero
cambiaron la letra “e” por la “a” a raíz de un sueño de John Lennon en el que un hombre
encima de una tarta llameante le recomendaba el citado trueque de letras. Por esa época su
manager era Allan Williams, el dueño del club Jacaranda.
En mayo de 1960 y gracias a la mediación de Larry Parnes, el gurpo gira con Escocia junto al
cantante Johnny Gentle.
Un amigo de la escuela de arte de John Lennon, Stuart Sutcliffe (nacido el 23 de junio de 1940
en Liverpool), se incorporaría al bajo en enero de 1960 y Pete Best ocuparía el puesto de
batería tras abandonar los Blackjacks en el mes de agosto del mismo año.
Ese verano comienzan a actuar en los bulliciosos locales de Hamburgo, como el Indra Club.
En la ciudad alemana aprenderían entre el alcohol y las prostitutas a perfeccionar sus
habilidades instrumentales, interpretando básicamente clásicos del rock and roll durante
largas e interminables actuaciones.
A finales del año 1960 y a causa de la deportación de Harrison debido a su minoría de edad
y de la pérdida de los permisos de trabajo de los restantes componentes, regresaron a
Liverpool, en donde comenzarían a actuar con gran seguimiento popular en un club
denominado The Cavern, en el que habían tocado por primera vez y cuando todavía se
llamaban The Quarry Men el 24 de enero de 1958.
Su primera actuación con el nombre de The Beatles sería el sábado, 9 de junio de 1961.

El 22 y 23 de junio los Beatles graban una serie de temas con Tony Sheridan, entre ellos “My
Bonnie”. Este single sería lanzado, como Tony Sheridan & The Beat Brothers, en agosto del
mismo año en Alemania. En Inglaterra aparecería publicado el 5 de enero de 1962, siendo
acreditado a Tony Sheridan & The Beatles.

En julio de 1961 retornarían a Hamburgo, época en la cual Stuart Sutcliffe se enamoró y se


hizo novio de Astrid Kirchherr, una fotógrafa alemana que en esos momentos era pareja de
Klaus Voorman.
Astrid les propuso un cambio en su peinado, sugiriéndoles cambiar el tupé por los después
famosísimos flequillos (el famoso look moptop). Cuando regresaron de nuevo a las Islas
Británicas el grupo se redujo a cuarteto ya que Sutcliffe se quedaría en Alemania viviendo con
Astrid y prosiguiendo sus estudios de arte. Fue en esos momentos cuando Paul pasaría a
ocupar el puesto de bajista.

En octubre de 1961 "My Bonnie" causa un fuerte impacto en un joven empresario propietario
de una tienda de discos llamada North End Music Store quien, ante las masivas peticiones del
single, decidió ir a conocer personalmente a esa nueva banda que aparecía en los créditos
junto a Sheridan y que se hacía llamar The Beatles. El nombre de ese empresario era Brian
Epstein (nacido el 19 de septiembre de 1934 en Liverpool).
Nada más poner los pies en The Cavern, el 9 de noviembre de 1961, Epstein quedó
entusiasmado ante el desparpajo y vitalidad de los cuatro muchachos.

Rápidamente se les ofreció como representante y los Beatles, con gran ansia de alcanzar la
popularidad, aceptaron la oferta a comienzos de diciembre de 1961. La primera estrategia
promocional de Epstein fue vestirles de traje y corbata e intentar encontrarles una compañía
discográfica.
La primera prueba de grabación la harían para la poderosa Decca Records. La audición, que
se produjo el día 1 de enero de 1962, ofreció resultados negativos. Dick Rowe, uno de los
jerifaltes del sello, decidió descartar a los Beatles en beneficio de Brian Poole & The Tremeloes,
a quienes veía con más gancho comercial.
Además de esa mala noticia, recibieron la comunicación del fallecimiento de Sutcliffe el 10 de
abril de 1962 a causa de un derrame cerebral. Tenía solamente 22 años.

No sólo la Decca desestimó a los Beatles, otros sellos menores descartarían proporcionar
cobijo a los músicos de Liverpool hasta que toparon con la EMI y Parlophone.
En Parlophone, los Beatles y Brian Epstein presentaron su trabajo y sus propuestas a un
hombre de la casa llamado George Martin (nacido el 3 de enero de 1926 en Londres), quien
les hizo firmar un contrato para grabar un primer single, oficializado dicho contrato el 4 de
junio de 1962.

Antes de las grabaciones, Martin adoptó una decisión importante: la expulsión del grupo del
batería Pete Best (el único en no adoptar el moptop), quien dejaría la formación el 16 de
agosto de 1962.
Este hecho provocaría una protesta enérgica por parte de sus seguidores, ya que Best era el
Beatles con más simpatía entre el público femenino.
A pesar de ello, George Martin no cejó en su empeño y Pete abandonó la banda para unirse
poco después la Lee Curtis All Star Band y posteriormente liderar el Pete Best Group.
El sustituto de Best sería el simpático Richard Starkey, alias Ringo Starr (nacido el 7 de julio
de 1940 en Liverpool) el conocido batería de otra formación de la localidad inglesa, Rory
Storm and The Hurricanes, grupo con los que ya habían coincidido en sus actuaciones en
Hamburgo. El 18 de agosto Ringo se convertiría en miembro oficial de la banda y el 23 John
se casaba con Cynthia Powell.
Con Brian Epstein como mánager, George Martin a la producción y Dick James como publicista
(quien también los llevaría a Northern Records), la maquinaria Beatle comenzó a grabar.

Su música, que se cimentaba en una amalgama de influencias sonoras como el clásico rock’n’
roll, el skiffle, el R&B, las girl groups o el soul, filtradas por su maestría compositiva, una
ejecución enérgica y fresca, y un genial sentido de la melodía y de las armonías vocales, sería
plasmada en vinilo el 5 de octubre de 1962 con el single "Love me do" (cara b "P.S. I love you"),
un tema escrito por la Lennon/McCartney, los principales compositores de la formación y una
de las parejas de escritores de canciones más importantes de todos los tiempos.

En la grabación en el mítico Estudio 2 de Abbey Road del 11 de septiembre de 1962 estaba


George Martin apoyado en la producción por Ron Richards (futuro productor de los Hollies) y
como ingenieros de sonido Norman Smith y Chris Neal. El batería del single era el músico de
sesión Andy White, elegido en principio por Martin para reemplazar a Best. En el del Lp, por
el contrario, suena la batería de Ringo. El 17 de octubre los Beatles aparecerían por primera
vez actuando en televisión al aparecer en el programa de Granada Television “People and
Places”. En enero de 1963 giran por Escocia y en Febrero con Helen Shapiro por el Reino
Unido.
“Love me do”, consiguió notable repercusión comercial, alcanzando en Inglaterra el número
17. “Please please me/Ask me why”, single aparecido el 11 de enero de 1963 subió hasta el
número 2 (número 1 en la revista Melody Maker) y con “From me to you/Thank you girl”
alcanzarían su primer número 1 en Gran Bretaña tras ser publicado el 11 de mayo de 1963.

Con el Lp “Please Please me” (1963), un disco aparecido el 22 de marzo de 1963 que ponía
de manifiesto con descaro, inocencia y brío sus influencias (refrendadas con la elección de las
versiones) y su incomparable habilidad para las melodías y armonías, los Beatles barrerían las
listas británicas consiguiendo auparse con facilidad a lo más alto gracias a temas como “Do
you want to know a secret?”, “I saw her standing there”, “Misery” o “Ask me why”.

Entre las versiones hallamos un famoso cover de “Twist & Shout” una canción escrita para los
Isley Brothers por Phil Medley y Bert Russell, seudónimo del productor Bert Berns, la excelente
adaptación del “Anna (Go to him)” del soulman Arthur Alexander, el “Chains”, canción escrita
por Carole King y Gerry Goffin para el girl group The Cookies, o “Boys” de las Shirelles, a
quienes también versionan con “Baby, It’s you”, tema compuesto por Burt Bacharach y Hal
David.

El 3 de agosto de 1963 ofrecen su último concierto en The Cavern y veinte días después
publican el single “She loves you/I’ll get you” (número 1 en Inglaterra).
El 4 de noviembre, los Beatles actúan en el Royal Command Performance. En medio de la
actuación Lennon dice una de sus frases más recordadas: “Los de los asientos baratos pueden
aplaudir, los restantes basta con que agiten las joyas”.

"With the Beatles" (1963), aparecido el 22 de noviembre, sería su fenomenal segundo disco,
que ya tenía pedidos antes de su salida de más de 250.000 copias, convirtiéndose en el
primer Lp en la historia del Reino Unido en superar el millón de ejemplares vendidos en menor
tiempo, solamente dos semanas.
“With the Beatles”, con foto en portada de Robert Freeman, reemplazaría a “Please Please Me”
como número 1 en la lista de ventas de Lps en Inglaterra, confirmando la Beatlemania
existente en el Reino Unido.

En el álbum incluían temas propios como "It won't be long", "All my loving", "All I've got to
do", "Don't bother me", la primera canción compuesta por George Harrison o “I wanna be your
man”, tema escrito por Lennon y McCartney para los Rolling Stones que interpreta Ringo Starr.
También versionaban, definiendo de nuevo sus raíces (rock’n’roll, soul, girl groups), a Chuck
Berry con “Roll over Beeethoven”, las Marvelettes con “Please Mr. Postman”, Smokey Robinson
& The Miracles con “You really got a hold on me”, “Till there was you”, una canción del musical
de Broadway “The Music Man”, “Devin in her heart”, del girl group The Donays, o la conocida
“Money”, tema escrito por Berry Gordy Jr., el creador de la Motown, para Barret Strong.

A pesar de que su fama en Inglaterra y Europa era extrema, los Beatles no lograrían el éxito
masivo en los Estados Unidos hasta la publicación del single "I want to hold your hand/This
Boy", publicado en Inglaterra el 29 de noviembre de 1963. El disco llegaría, como era usual,
al número 1 en Gran Bretaña y, por primera vez en los Estados Unidos, un país en donde
generalmente prestaban poca atención a la música procedente de fuera de sus fronteras,
hehco que cambiaría con la aparición de los Fab Four. .

La popularidad lograda por los Beatles tras “I want to hold your hand”, confirmada con
actuaciones en directo y en el famoso programa de Ed Sullivan, en donde actuaron por
primera vez el 9 de febrero de 1964, provocaría la llamada "Invasión Británica", en la cual un
tropel de grupos del Reino Unido prosiguieron la triunfante estela del grupo de Liverpool en
tierras americanas, provocando asimismo que innumerables jóvenes estadounidenses
emularan a sus ídolos británicos.

Sus conciertos estaban llenos de escenas histéricas, las actuaciones televisivas, batían records
de audiencia, su estética era imitada por doquier y sus trabajos obtenían ventas
multimillonarias.
1964 se convirtió en el año del asalto británico por excelencia, no sólo los Beatles, sino que
gente como Peter & Gordon, Animals, Dave Clark Five o Herman's Hermits, por citar algunos
nombres (los Rolling Stones lo conseguiría un poco más tarde), coparían las listas de éxitos
estadounidenses, antes de la llegada del grupo de Liverpool un coto casi privado de los
artistas estadounidenses.
El fructífero talento compositivo (fue el primer grupo en escribir la mayoría de sus canciones,
hecho que incitó a las demás formaciones a hacer lo mismo) les llevó a escribir temas de éxito
para gente como Billy J. Kramer, Peter & Gordon, Chad & Jeremy, Cilla Black o los mismísimos
Rolling Stones.

El 2 de marzo de 1964 comenzaron a rodar la película “A hard day’s night”, un film dirigido
por Richard Lester que supuso toda una revolución en la manera de abordar la historia y
actuación en pantalla de un grupo cinematográfico. El 31 de marzo del mismo mes alcanzan
lo nunca visto en el Billboard, nada más y nada menos que cinco canciones de un mismo
grupo encabezan el famoso listado de ventas, encabezado por el sencillo “Can’t buy me love”,
en el número 2 se encontraba “Twist & Shout”, en el 3 “She loves you”, en el número 4 “I want
to hold your hand” y en el 5 “Please Please Me”.

El extraordinario album “A hard day’s night” (1964), el primero y único (ya que después
también aparecerían temas de Harrison y de Ringo) escrito en su totalidad por
Lennon/McCartney, que incluía canciones como "Can't buy me love", "And I love her", "I
should have known better", "Any time at all" o "If I fell", y "Beatles for sale" (1964), un disco
con estupendos temas propios como "Eight days a week", "I'm a loser", "I'll follow the sun" o
"No reply" y versiones de clásicos del rock'n'roll, fueron los Lps publicados por los Fab Four
el año de su consagración.
En "For Sale" homenajeaban a algunos de sus músicos favoritos, como Carl Perkins, Chuck
Berry o Buddy Holly.

En 1964, además de “Can’t buy me love”, aparecerían los singles “A hard day’s night/Things
we said today”, “I feel fine/She’s a woman” y “If I fell/Tell me why”.

El 11 de febrero de 1965 Ringo contrajo matrimonio con Maureen Cox, con Brian Epstein
como padrino de boda. “Help” sería su segunda película con Richard Lester, en donde
cantaban varios temas, como “The night before”, “I need you”, “You’re going to lose that girl”,
“Ticket to ride” o “You’ve got to hide your love away” que fueron incluidos en el Lp homónimo
“Help” (1965), un disco que aparecería dos meses después de ser condecorados por la reina
de Inglaterra, el 11 de junio de 1965, con la orden del Imperio Británico, a pesar de la protesta
de otros miembros galardonados que optaron por devolver sus condecoraciones.

En “Help” versionaba a Larry Williams con “Dizzy Miss Lizzy” y “Act Naturally” del cantante de
country Buck Owens.
“We can’t work it out/Day Tripper”, un doble sencillo no aparecido en el álbum, volvió a
proporcionarles otro número 1.
La música y las letras de los Beatles fueron progresando a pasos agigantados a través de su
trayectoria musical, con mayor agudeza y reflexión en la expresión lírica y una sorprendente
madurez sonora percibida en “Rubber Soul” (1965), un disco aparecido en diciembre de 1965
en el cual se apreciaba una mayor experimentación y una expansión mayor de sus habituales
sonidos, siendo influenciados por algunos nombres fundamentales del continente americano,
en especial Bob Dylan y la contribución rockera al folk por parte de los Byrds.
Este fue el primer disco en el cual Harrison utilizaba el sitar. “Norwegian Wood”, “Think for
yourself”, “Nowhere Man”, “Michelle”, “Drive my car”, “If I hended someon”, “Girl” o “In my life”
son parte de un Lp verdaderamente excepcional.

El 21 de enero de 1966 George se casó con la modelo Pattie Boyd, con quien venía
manteniendo una relación desde la época en que rodaron “A hard day’s night”. Ese año resultó
muy movido para los Fab Four. En el mes de marzo una frase sacada de contexto de John
Lennon, afirmando que los Beatles en ese momento eran más famosos que Jesucristo,
provocó una reacción virulenta en su contra por parte de los fanáticos religiosos de los
Estados Unidos, que quemaron sus discos de manera pública (tras unas aclaraciones
televisivas de Lennon las cosas terminarían serenándose), en julio decidieron no acudir a una
recepción del dictador filipino Ferdinand Marcos y tuvieron que salir “por patas” del país,
mientras que en el mismo mes tuvieron problemas para actuar en el Budokan japonés, un sitio
dedicado a la lucha. Ante los impedimentos para su actuación Lennon expresó: “creo que es
mejor tocar música que pelearse”.

El magistral Lp "Revolver" (1966), publicado el 5 de agosto de 1966, mostró al grupo en plena


lucidez como compositores y músicos. Paul McCartney con el single "Eleanor Rigby", "For no
one" o "Here, there and everywhere" y John Lennon con "And your bird can sing", "I'm only
sleeping", "She Said She Said" o "Tomorrow never knows" llegarían a un punto culminante en
su carrera como autores.
George Harrison presentaba la ácida y corrosiva "Taxman". El fenomenal sencillo "Paperback
writer” (con la cara b “Rain”), una irónica canción de McCartney sobre la habilidad literaria de
Lennon, define bien esta etapa de propagación sónica del grupo.
La complejidad de sus composiciones y el ruidoso alboroto que armaban las fans en sus
conciertos, lo cual imposibilitaba la escucha entre los propios músicos, obligó a los Beatles a
abandonar los escenarios tras un último concierto ofrecido en el Candlestick Park de San
Francisco el 29 de agosto de 1966.

1967 comenzaría con el sencillo "Penny Lane"/"Strawberry Fields Forever", cuyas notas se
encontraban empapadas de psicodelia, sonido esencial en su siguiente trabajo, una de las
obras claves de su trayectoria.
El 1 de junio de 1967 aparece "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (1967), con una
fenomanal portada obra de Peter Blake (en la que aparecían rostros de amigos y gente que les
habían inspirado), el álbum fue el epítome de la música pop psicodélica.
"Lucy in the sky with diamonds", "A day in the life", "When I'm sixty four", "Whith a little help
from my friends" o "For the Benefit of Mr. Kite" singularizan la gran capacidad de progreso
musical, donde sondeaban muchos instrumentos por esos momentos ajenos al pop y
pertenecientes en cambio al ámbito de la música clásica, music hall, circense u oriental.
Además, fue la primera vez que un grupo ofrecía sus letras en un disco.
La permuta constante del grupo también se apreciaba en su original vestimenta y en su nuevo
look bigotudo, que volvió a influenciar a sus compañeros de profesión.
El 15 de mayo de 1967 Paul conocería a Linda Eastman asistiendo a un concierto de Georgie
Fame & The Blue Flames. Para añadir más records a su carrera, los Beatles fueron elegidos
para inaugurar la primera emisión vía satélite interpretando para todo el mundo y en directo
el tema "All you need is love".
En esa actuación, llevada a cabo el 25 de junio de 1967, participaron haciendo coros gente
como Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Marianne Faithful o Graham Nash.
El suicidio el 21 de agosto, época en la cual los Beatles estaban con el Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
en la localidad de Bangor (Gales), de ese mismo año de su mánager Brian Epstein supuso una
conmoción en el seno de la banda. Aunque musicalmente no les afectó en demasía, perdieron
esa fuerza aglutinadora cuya falta habría de notarse con el paso de los años.
Paul McCartney ideó un nuevo proyecto cinematográfico al que llamarían "Magical Mistery
Tour", que finalmente obtendrían mediocres resultados. El disco homónimo aparecido en
1967 como complemento al producto fílmico fue la conjunción de lo que habrían de ser dos
EPs. El exuberante talento de los Fab Four volvería a brillar con canciones como "I'm the
walrus" o "Fool on the Hill".
Las correrías hindúes de los Beatles (con especial significación para George Harrison) llegarían
a su punto más álgido cuando en febrero de 1968 decidieron visitar el subcontinente asiático
para pasar unos días en compañía del famoso gurú Maharishi Mahes Yogi en Rishikesh.
Junto al cuarteto de Liverpool también se trasladó a la India el cantante Donovan, la actriz Mia
Farrow, su hermana Prudence (a quien Lennon le dedicó el tema "Dear Prudence") y Mike Love,
componente de los Beach Boys.
Después de comprobar que el Maharishi tenía tantas necesidades físicas como espirituales
tras intentar mantener relaciones sexuales con Mia Farrow, los Beatles, escaldados con la
experiencia, regresaron a Europa.
Un mes antes, El 22 de enero de 1968 habían creado oficialmente su propio sello discográfico
al que denomina Apple, una iniciativa que finalmente les produciría graves pérdidas
económicas.
John, por su parte, acababa de empezar a mantener una relación sentimental con una artista
japonesa de nombre Yoko Ono, una mujer que ejerció una gran influencia en Lennon, cosa
que no le agradaba nada a Paul McCartney, quien rompería con su novia Jane Asher (hermana
de Peter Asher de Peter & Gordon) en julio del 68.
En cuanto a su faceta artística, el 15 de marzo aparece el single “Lady Madonna/The Inner
Light” y el 30 de agosto “Hey Jude/Revolution”. El 22 de noviembre publican un disco doble
con portada minimalista totalmente en blanco en la que solamente aparece el nombre del
grupo. El trabajo pasaría a la historia como "The White Album" (1968) y se convertiría en una
de las experiencias más eclécticas y satisfactorias en la historia del rock, con una sonoridad
más directa y espontánea que la encontrada en sus pretéritos discos.
El blues, el rock, el music-hall, el pop, el boogie, el vanguardismo, la psicodelia, el country, el
folk y hasta el heavy se dan cita en un Lp imprescindible para entender la música futura en
cualquiera de sus vertientes estilísticas.
John Lennon y Paul McCartney ofrecían su habitual genialidad en la escritura y George
Harrison compondría uno de los mejores temas del doble album, "While my guitar gently
weeps", canción que contaba con la ayuda en la guitarra de Eric Clapton.
Otras composiciones destacadas de esta obra maestra serían "Back in the USSR", "Glass
Onion", "Ob-la-Di, Ob-La-da" (famoso tema definido por el batería de Police Stewart Copeland
como la primera composición de reggae blanco), "Happiness is a warm gun", "I'm so tired",
"Rocky Raccoon", "Julia" (dedicado por Lennon a su madre) "Blackbird", "Birthday", "Sexy
Sadie", "Helter Skelter" (pieza que influenció al asesino satanista Charles Manson), "Revolution
1", "Dear Prudence" o "Cry baby Cry".
Una surrealista película animada dirigida por George Dunning con el título de una antigua
canción del grupo, se convertiría en su Lp "Yellow Submarine" (1969), aparecido el 17 de
enero de 1969. El álbum, con temas como “All together now”, “Only a northern song” o “Hey
Bulldog”, y pasajes instrumentales escritos por George Martin, subió hasta el número 3 en las
listas británicas al mismo tiempo que el “White Album” permanecía en el número 1. El film,
que habia sido dirigido por George Dunning, también incluía diversos pasajes instrumentales
de George Martin.
Las relaciones entre los miembros a partir de ahí comenzaban a estar tirantes. El 17 de enero
de 1969 publican “Yellow Submarine”En 1969 desecharon mucho material (en unas sesiones
en las que colaboró Billy Preston) por no estar conformes con su resultado y presentaron el
sencillo "Get Back", que llegaría con facilidad al número 1 en todo el mundo.
Por esa época decidieron subir a la azotea de Apple y dar un concierto sorpresa ante la mirada
atónita de los viandantes. Esto sucedió el 30 de enero de 1969, convirtiéndose en la última
ocasión en que los cuatro Beatles tocarían juntos en directo.
Todo este suceso y las citadas sesiones de grabación quedaron recogido en el film"Let it be",
un documento histórico de un grupo en pleno proceso de desintegración.
El sencillo "Ballad of John and Yoko", publicado el 30 de mayo de 1969, sería su postrero
número 1 en listas británicas de singles.
El 12 de marzo de 1969 Paul contrajo matrimonio con Linda Eastman. Lennon haría lo mismo
con Yoko casándose en Gibraltar el 20 del mismo mes, pasando la luna de miel en el Hotel
Milton de Amsterdam, alojándose en la habitación 902 y estableciendo una protesta pacifista
con el contexto de la Guerra del Vietnam denominada “en la cama por la paz”.
La ausencia de Brian Epstein comenzaba a hacerse notar. Los Beatles estaban desorientados
sin una persona de confianza mutua que llevara sus asuntos.
Paul propuso a su suegro, Lee Eastman, recomendación no aceptada por los demás que
preferían a Allen Klein, quien al final se haría con el cargo.
En medio de esas disconformidades presentarían una nueva obra maestra, "Abbey Road"
(1969), maravilloso disco publicado el 26 de septiembre de 1969 en el cual se puede escuchar
temas extraordinarios como "Here comes the sun", "Something", "Come together" o "Because".
Ese trabajo no provocó la cohesión de la banda, sino todo lo contrario. Las composiciones
habían sido grabadas por separado y sus miembros ya planeaban nuevos proyectos al margen
de los Beatles.
Lennon ya había formado la Plastic Ono Band con Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton, Klaus Voorman y
Alan White y ya le había comentado a Paul que iba a abandonar el grupo aunque no lo
comunicaría públicamente ya que deseaba que todos los componentes hiciesen una
declaración conjunta del fin oficial de la banda.
Mientras tanto, el legendario productor Phil Spector recogió las grabaciones abandonadas tras
las sesiones en las que participó Preston.
Tras una serie de arreglos y orquestaciones presentó el último Lp oficial de la banda, "Let it
be" (1970), un magnífico disco que contenía los temas "The Long And Winding Road" (número
1 en EEUU) y el popular single homónimo, "Let it be", último sencillo oficial de los Beatles
publicado el 6 de marzo de 1970.
Paul McCartney obvió la recomendación de Lennon y anunció (con enfado de los demás, en
especial de John y George) el 10 de abril de 1970 la separación definitiva de los Beatles,
mientras presentaba su primer Lp en solitario. Nunca más volverían a reunirse.
John Lennon moriría asesinado el 8 de diciembre de 1980 en Nueva York.
Los tres restantes Beatles se reunirían mucho más tarde, en los años 90 para grabar junto a
Jeff Lynne dos canciones de la época post-Beatle de John Lennon, "Free as a bird" y "Real Love".
Fueron los dos últimas canciones inéditas de una banda inmortal, que perdería a George
Harrison a causa de un cáncer el 30 de noviembre del año 2001.
DISCOGRAFÍA
• Please please me (1963)
El arranque de la banda más significativa de la música moderna fue este primer disco titulado
"Please Please me", Lp empapado de ritmo, espontaneidad y frescura, en el cual compaginan
composiciones propias con versiones/homenajes a su música favorita, el rock'n'roll, las girl
groups o el soul. Así, covers del cantante soul Arthur Alexander ("Anna (go to him)"), de las
Cookies ("Chains"), de las Shirelles ("Misery" y "Baby it's you") o los Isley Brothers ("Twist &
Shout") suenan de forma inmejorable gracias al desparpajo rítmico, talento instrumental y
habilidad vocal del cuarteto. Como compositores, Lennon y McCartney resultan practicamente
infalibles. "I saw her standing there" es un vívido rock'n'roll estilo Little Richard. "Misery" es
una melancólica pieza de Lennon con George Martin al piano. "Ask me why" es una
sentimental canción repleta de bellas armonías. "Please please me", con el atractivo sonido de
armónica de Lennon, es una perfecta ilustración del beat de los Fab Four que los conduciría
al éxito. La sencillez rítmica de la gloriosa "Love me do" te recuerda desde su grandeza que
ese difícil valor de simplicidad es el cimiento del buen pop.
"P.S. I love you", sublime tema de amor dedicado por Paul McCartney a su novia Dot Rhone.
"Do you want to know a secret?" es un tema de aroma acústico y maravillosa melodía
cantando de forma espléndida por George Harrison pero compuesto por John Lennon, quien
también elabora "There's a place", un introspectivo viaje al refugio mental con pegadizo ritmo
beat.

• With The Beatles (1963)
El segundo larga duración de The Beatles supone una progresión respecto a su primerizo "Please
Please Me", en parte debido a un mejor criterio a la hora de escoger los temas a versionar, que
representan básicamente lo que el grupo ofrecía en sus actuaciones antes de conquistar la fama.
También es destacable una propensión más personal en el tratamiento de los textos en sus
composiciones originales y en el aspecto técnico, el empleo de las voces dobladas, una
característica sonora muy utilizada por el grupo de Liverpool. Entre los covers destacan la
maravillosa adaptación del clásico de las Marvelettes "Please Mr. Postman", la no menos magnífica
recreación de "You're really got a hold on me" del gran Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, el clásico
de Chuck Berry "Roll over Beethoven" con George tomando el liderazgo vocal y "Money (That's what
I want)", la canción escrita por el fundador de la Motown, Berry Gordy Jr, que encuentra en este
album su revisitación más popular. Pero como de costumbre (por algo son los mejores compositores
de la historia del pop), los mejores momentos vienen de la mano de sus propias canciones, una de
ellas, "Don't bother me", representa el debut de George Harrison como autor. Además nos
encontramos a un inspiradísimo Lennon en joyas como "It won't be long", "All I've got to do", con
un estilo similar al de los Miracles, al igual que "Not a second time" (con un piano interpretado por
el productor George Martin) y a un Paul McCartney que, aunque en menor cantidad, ya empezaba
a demostrar sus enormes cualidades como compositor en la primorosa melodía de "All my loving",
tema dedicado a su novia Jane Asher y en la efervescente "Hold me tight". Aunque no sea lo mejor

• A Hard Day’s Night (1964)
Proyectada como banda sonora para la película del mismo título dirigida por Richard Lester,
"A hard day's night" es un Lp dominado por las composiciones de un genial John Lennon, que
vuelve a incidir en las relaciones de pareja desde una agridulce gradación.
Con supremacía del sonido acústico, el disco contine exaltados comprimidos pop de
reconstituyente ejecución, como la homónima y revoltosa "A hard day's night", "I should have
know better", distinguida por una inequívoca introducción Beatle en la que destaca la
armónica de John, "Tell me why", estupendo tema agraciado por una alta facturación vocal
que incluye falsetes a dúo de Paul y John y la rítmica "Any time at all", expresión filántropa de
un inspirado Lennon.
El sabor country de "I'll cry instead" pone de manifiesto el gusto por la música de Merle
Haggard y Buck Owens, en especial por parte de Ringo.
La balada "If I fell" y la primorosa "I'll be back", expresan con majestuosidad el incomparable
sentido de la armonía y melodía de los Fab Four. Lennon también regala a Harrison el tema
"I'm happy just to dance with you", otra pieza pop de gozosa audición.
Paul participa en tareas de escritura sólo en tres magníficas canciones. Sólo hay que escuchar
y disfrutar con la cálida ligereza romántica a ritmo de bongos y caja china de "And I love her",
el rock'n'roll al estilo Little Richard de "Can't buy me love" y el sencillo e instantáneo arrojo
pop de "Things we said today".
"A hard day's night" es un Lp fantástico, que singulariza a la perfección la capacidad creativa
de los Beatles, quienes confeccionan aquí su primera obra maestra, marcada por una frescura
y lozanía inmarchitable al paso del tiempo.

• Beatles For Sale (1964)
El cuarto Lp de los Beatles supuso un retroceso respecto al anterior "A hard day's night",
aunque en sus composiciones se continúa apreciando su incesante desarrollo compositivo.
Los de Liverpool en la cima de su popularidad y ante la ausencia de suficientes temas propios
(debido al escaso tiempo para componer que por esas fechas les dejaba su ajetreado ritmo
de vida), decidieron homenajear a sus maestros y rellenan buena parte del álbum con algunas
aceptables versiones de grandes nombres del rock.
Las mejores: "Rock'n'roll music" de Chuck Berry y "Words of love" de Buddy Holly, en las cuales
Lennon y McCartney armonizan sus voces a la perfección.
A pesar de ser uno de los trabajos menos interesantes del grupo, el material propio ensalza
la calidad del conjunto, presentando excelentes canciones escritas en estrecha unión por John
y Paul, como "Baby's in black", tema a ritmo de vals o "Eight days a week", una magistral pieza
pop.
Lennon lleva el peso en "No reply", con una temática similar al éxito de The Rays "Silhouettes",
canción popularizada por los Herman's Hermits, "I don't want to spoil the party" y la dylaniana
"I'm a loser", una amarga canción de naturaleza introspectiva que supone lo mejor del Lp
junto a la preciosa balada "I'll follow the sun", un tema pretérito que McCartney había
compuesto en el lejano año 1959.
Paul compone otros destellos pop como "What you're doing", canción dotada de una
pronunciada introducción de Ringo y "Every little thing", pieza dedicada a su (por entonces)
novia Jane Asher (hermana de Peter Asher del conocido dúo Peter & Gordon) y, curiosamente,
interpretada por John Lennon.

• Help! (1965)
Como no puede ser menos en una banda tan dotada como los Beatles, su quinto álbum
"Help!" es un fenomenal muestrario de canciones que muestran la constante escalada del
grupo como autores e intérpretes. John Lennon brilla en la canción que da título al disco, un
juguetón tema de infeccioso estribillo con depresiva lírica, en la dylaniana "You've got to hide
your love away", con mensaje subliminal para el mánager Brian Epstein (enamorado de
Lennon), la exquisita elegancia pop de "You're going to lose that girl", que incluye un gran
trabajo en los coros de Paul y George, la extraordinaria ejecución de "Ticket to ride" y la
magnífica balada de tenue romanticismo "It's only love". McCartney presenta varias piezas
rebosantes de sapiencia melódica como "Another girl" y la jubilosa "The night before", que
cuenta con la acertada inclusión de un piano eléctrico, al igual que hace en "Tell me what you
see". Recoge influencias folk y country & western en "I've just seen a face" y deja para la
historia una de las mejores composiciones de la música moderna, la melancólica "Yesterday",
que en un principio iba a llevar por título "Scrambled Eggs" y en la que solamente participa
Paul a la voz solista y guitarra acústica, acompañado por un cuarteto de cuerda. El trabajo se
completa con dos de las primeras y satisfactorias creaciones de George Harrison, "You like me
too much" y especialmente la pegadiza "I need you".
Además incluyen dos adaptaciones de temas ajenos, el rock'n'roll "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", cantado
por John Lennon y escrito por Larry Williams y la inevitable canción de Ringo con esencias
country, "Act Naturally", interpretada en su versión original por el tejano Buck Owens, uno de
los principales integrantes del sonido Bakersfield.

• Rubber Soul (1965)
El sexto Lp de los Fab Four significó una notable progresión tanto lírica como musical en su carrera.
La influencia en los textos de Dylan con "Bringing it back home" y el consumo de drogas,
especialmente la marihuana, estaban consiguiendo que se abrieran a nuevos sonidos, exprimiendo
cada vez más su inmenso talento y escribiendo sobre asuntos de mayor carga filosófica y letras más
maduras, cínicas y agudas en cuanto a las relaciones de pareja. Por otra parte, cada vez se iban
interesando más por el trabajo en estudio, introduciendo en su perenne búsqueda de
experimentación sonora nuevos instrumentos a su música. Así, en en esta obra maestra que es
"Rubber Soul", se puede escuchar un armonio en "The Word", una composición de Lennon que con
sus constantes referencias al amor, se adelantaba al movimiento hippie. Un órgano Hammond
interpretado por Ringo en "I'm looking through you", tema escrito por Paul McCartney. El sitar indio
de George Harrison es un complemento perfecto para Norwegian Wood", bellísima canción de John,
muy influenciada por Dylan y que inspiró al propio Dylan para escribir "4th time around". El fuzz-
bass suena en manos de Macca en "Think for yourself", pieza escrita por George al igual que "If I
needed someone", un tema de clara influencia Byrds. Incluso introducen un solo de clavicémbalo
tocado por George Martin en "In my life", la mejor aportación, junto a la delicada balada "Girl", de
Lennon al álbum. Son dignas de reseñar la estrecha colaboración a la hora de componer entre John
y Paul, en formidables canciones como "Drive my car" y "Wait", su admirable conjunción vocal en
glorias como "You won't see me", la citada "The word" y sobre todo "Nowhere man", la inmensa
balada (con versos en francés incluidos) "Michelle" de McCartney, la estupenda y socarrona "Run for
your life" y una curiosidad, "What goes on?", simpática pieza de aromas country & western firmada
por Lennon, McCartney y Starr y cantada por este último, gran amante del citado género
estadounidense.

• Revolver (1966)
Uno de los trabajos definitivos en la historia del poprock fabricados por los incomparables
Fab Four.
En su anterior disco "Rubber Soul" (1965) ya habían demostrado una notable madurez como
compositores pero es en "Revolver" cuando su capacidad como autores se elevó a una
categoría excepcional.

Los recursos de experimentación tanto en su sonoridad como en sus letras los alejaban de
sus colegas de la primeriza Invasión británica introduciéndoles en mundos más complejos
que influenciarían ampliamente de nuevo a sus contemporáneos y futuros hacedores del
género.

Píldoras psicodélicas, maravillosas baladas, retazos powerpoperos, música hindú, secciones


de cuerda, pop con sabor a ragtime, poderosos pasajes de metal, arriesgados efectos sonoros
y cuentos infantiles de gran imaginería colorista son algunas de las travesías sónicas de un
album clave en el desarrollo musical moderno que presagiaba otras obras maestras que
estaban por llegar.

Todo un hito de un grupo nunca acomodado en sus posturas musicales. La portada (sin el
nombre de la banda impreso) está diseñada por Klaus Voorman.

• Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)
Marcado por su ambiciosa y compleja experimentación que aunaba elementos típicos de pop con
características clásicas y vodevilescas sumergidas en mesmerizantes esencias psicodélicas, este
disco ahondó en esa faceta experimental de una manera nunca vista (sólo Brian Wilson y su "Pet
Sounds" había cuidado tanto un producto musical) y abrió la senda sónica a todos los demás grupos
para la expansión y renovación audaz de las constantes básicas de la música poprock. Con una
soberbia y vivaz introducción descriptiva sobre la banda de los corazones solitarios, el deleite
melómano rebosa con alegres piezas de ejemplar construcción melódica como "With a little help of
my friends", oda a la amistad cantada por Ringo y posteriormente versionada con éxito por Joe
Cocker, "Fixing a hole", "Getting Better" o "She's leaving home" (un prodigio de sensibilidad y belleza
introducida por el arpa de Sheila Bromberg) y caleidoscópicas naturalezas como "Lucy in the sky
with diamonds", canción que aunque se dijo que estaba dedicada al LSD, el propio Lennon afirmaba
que era la descripción de un dibujo realizado por su hijo Julian; visiones y aromas circenses en
"Being for the benefit of Mr. Kite", amaneceres granjeros en "Good Morning Good Morning", irónicas
reflexiones sobre el amor eterno adornadas por elegantes clarinetes en la cabaretera "When I'm
sixty-four", o la imaginería que diatriba sobre la condición humana, la fugacidad vital, el éxito y el
poder de "A day in the life", un corte maestro de extrema complicación que ejemplifica bien el
poderío de elaboración y ejecución de un disco esencial en el que participaron más de setenta
músicos, entre ellos, el gran George Martin, que aportó además de su sabiduría en la tarea
productora (¡¡¡utilizando sólo 4 pistas!!!) algunos pasajes de teclados. Como últimos datos, aportar
que este es el primer disco en la historia de la música en publicar todas las letras impresas y que la
extraordinaria portada (con gente como Karl Marx, Fred Astaire, Edgar Allan Poe, Marilyn Monroe,
Oscar Wilde Marlene Dietrich o Bob Dylan) fue realizada por Peter Blake.

• Magical Mistery Tour (1967)
Un gran disco psicodélico de los Beatles, compuesto por dos Eps que sirvieron como
acompañamiento musical para una fallida emisión televisiva proyectada por el inquieto Paul
McCartney. Invitándonos a un acomodo en un viaje mágico y misterioso iniciado con una
briosa apertura avasallada por nervudas trompetas, "Magical Mistery Tour" es un notable
complemento a "Sgt Peppers", con piezas que incluso superan el nivel de lo ofrecido en su
más aclamado disco. El sublime sentido del pop de Paul (que cuando se pone cañero es, con
diferencia, el más rockero de los cuatro) refulge en la taciturna balada "The fool on the hill",
historia sobre la alienación social con espléndida simbología y un sonido marcada por el
clásico piano Macca y unas bellas flautas ornamentando la melodía. McCartney también brilla
con la jugosa e iterativa "You mother should know", de aliento nostálgico cabaretero, o "Hello
goodbye", canción de minimalismo lírico, hermosa arquitectura melódica y contagioso
sentido del ritmo. Los mejores temas de este magistral trabajo son obra de John Lennon. "I'm
the walrus" es un hipnótico artificio surrealista de esceptismo vital, poderosa imaginería y
exuberante instrumentación, "Strawbery fields forever", pieza con el inolvidable mellotron
(interpretado por Paul McCartney) en la cual el hálito psicodélico de la época alcanza su
cumbre más elevada, y el clásico cántico de amor y paz "All you need is love", con MacCartney
berreando "yesterday" y "she love you" en su parte final junto a fragmentos swing de Glenn
Miller. El delirio alucinógeno de Harrison con "Blue Jay Way" y la canción más inspirada escrita
por Paul para este álbum, "Penny Lane", un evocativo recuerdo de la vida en Liverpool con esa
trompeta tan evocativa e imitada, son otras travesías sónicas de un grupo incomparable.

• White Album (1968)
En un álbum doble de tanta riqueza, matices y diversidad estilística en el que han participado
más de cuarenta músicos, entre ellos Billly Preston, Nicky Hopkins o el mismísimo Eric
Clapton (toca la guitarra en "While my guitar gently weeps") es imposible destacar alguna
canción (menos el vanguardismo latoso de "Revolution 9") ya que cada escucha puede revelar
un aspecto o detalle pasado por alto de una pieza no valorada en su justa medida, que nos
alcance su verdadera dimensión e impregne nuestras más agudas sensaciones entre sus
elaboradas notas, ya que hasta la más nimiedad de los genios de Liverpool es un hecho
gigantesco para la mayoría de los grupos.

"Revolution 1" (un tema de posturas revolucionarias pero de esencia pacifista presentado aquí
en su versión acústica, inferior a la fuerza eléctrica y distorsionada del single), "Helter Skelter"
(la canción más potente en la carrera de los Fab Four, obra de McCartney que enloqueció al
futuro asesino Charles Mason), "Dear Prudence" (dedicada a Prudence, la hermana de Mia
Farrow), "Back in the USSR" (una simpática mezcolanza entre Chuck Berry y Beach Boys), "Sexy
Sadie" (una acérbica crítica al Mararishi Yogi), "Martha My Dear" (un tema que Paul dedicó a
su perra), "Rocky Raccon" (un tema acústico de sabor country), "Glass Onion" (en el que
Lennon repasa con tono jocoso algunos temas de los Fab Four), "Happines is a warm gun"
(absorbente pieza de sublimes variaciones), "Julia" (un emotivo, hermoso y obsesivo recuerdo
de John a su querida madre) o "Why my guitar gently weeps" (la mejor canción escrita por
George Harrison junto a "Something" de "Abbey Road") son algunos importantes elementos de
un impresionante viaje al pasado, presente y futuro de la música del siglo XX, efectuada por
unos Beatles faltos de cohesión, que ideaban y ejecutaban sus piezas casi en solitario,
provocando desde su característica composición una asombrosa heterogeneidad nunca
contemplada en un trabajo discográfico.

Pop, rock, music-hall, psicodelia, country, blues, reggae, folk, surf e incluso heavy metal se
dan cita en un álbum esencial, de una influencia descomunal en todo tipo de vertientes
musicales.

En la lírica mantiene tonalidades que alternan la melancolía, el júbilo, el desamparo, la acritud,


el sarcasmo, la ironía o el cinismo.

• Yellow Submarine (1969)
Más que un Lp de los Beatles, "Yellow Submarine" es la banda sonora de la película de dibujos
animados que sobre la famosa canción infantil escrita por Paul McCarney realizara George
Dunning.
El disco es totalmente prescindible menos por la aparición de la fantástica canción de Lennon
"Hey Bulldog", con un poderoso riff y penetrantes aromas psicodélicos.

La psicodelia también empapa los temas compuestos por George Harrison. "Only a northern
song", un tema desechado del "Sgt. Peppers" que contiene una extraña y sugestiva atmósfera
rodeando una competente melodía y "It's all too much", un estrambótico caos sónico en el
cual dan cabida a la lírica del tema "Sorrow" de los Merseys (ex Merseybeats) con "You have
long black hair and your eyes are blue".

McCartney por su parte compone "All together now", un insignificante tema de pegadizo
estribillo y aires de music-hall.

El resto del disco son la referenciada "Yellow Submarine", ya encontrada en "Revolver", "All
you need is love", publicada en "Magical Mistery Tour" y las composiciones instrumentales del
productor George Martin.

• Abbey Road (1969)
Vio la luz con anterioridad a "Let it be", pero en realidad, el extraordinario "Abbey Road" fue la última
grabación de la inmortal banda de Liverpool, concluyendo de manera magistral la trayectoria del
mejor grupo de la historia. El enfoque musical para el album de los componentes era muy distinto,
John, continuando las pautas de los cortes grabados para "Let it be", deseaba un album cuyo
basamento fuese la vuelta a las raíces más básicas del rock'n'roll y el blues, mientras que Paul
ansiaba la grabación de un disco más complejo, que rememorara los logros del "Sgt. Peppers". Por
su parte, George, cansado de permanecer a la sombra de los dos grandes genios, y después de ya
haber grabado los discos experimentales "Wonderwall Music" y "Electronic Sound", deseaba volar en
solitario, no sin antes dejar su brillante impronta compositiva en este Lp. Esa constancia en las
pautas básicas del rock llevaron a Lennon a componer temas como "Come together", una canción
dominada por una base de blues que John compuso para la campaña del político Timothy Leary,
aspirante a Gobernador del estado de California. El tema fue acusado de plagio por Maurice Levy,
propietario de Big Seven Music, que inculpaba a Lennon del empleo de varias frases aparecidas en
el tema de Chuck Berry "You can catch me", canción que finalmente y en beneficio económico de
Berry y Levy, fue incluido en el posterior Lp "Rock'n'roll" del Beatle en solitario. El cimiento bluesy
vuelve a asomar en "I want you (She's so heavy)", tema dedicado a Yoko Ono que cuenta con una
insistente letra y una hipnótica parte final de abrupta conclusión. Otro corte destacado compuesto
por John es "Because", una mágica y bella composición en la cual se aprecia la maestría del grupo
en la utilización de las armonías vocales. George sorprende con dos de sus mejores composiciones.
La preciosa balada "Something", canción dedicada a su esposa Pattie Boyd que se ha convertido en
uno de los mejores temas de amor de todos los tiempos. Pattie se casaría con posterioridad con uno
de sus mejores amigos, Eric Clapton. Curiosamente sería en el jardín de Clapton en lugar en el cual
Harrison escribió "Here comes the sun", hermosa pieza acariciada por la delicada y soleada
vocalidad de su autor. Igualmente cabe destacar la utilización en algunos temas ("Maxwell's Silver
Hammer", "I want you", "Here comes the sun" o "Because") del sintetizador Moog por parte de
George, un elemento que por aquellos tiempos raramente se utilizaba en la música pop (uno de los
primeros en utilizarlo fue Keith Emerson), lo que demuestra una vez más su indiscutible capacidad
de innovar y adelantarse a su tiempo. Ringo, por su parte, nos deleita con una simpática tonada de
corte infantil, "Octopus's Garden", canción en la cual recordaba las historias de pulpos que le contó
un capitán de barco en unas vacaciones pasadas en la Isla de Cerdeña. Paul, el mayor artífice del
grueso del album, también retoma las patrones de "Let it be" en "Oh! Darling", gran canción blues
de desgarrada vocalidad. Su pasión por el vodevil, heredada de su padre, se plasma en "Maxwell's
Silver Hammer", un tema en el que incluso utilizan el sonido de un yunque, golpeado por Ringo.
"You never give me your money" da inicio al glorioso medley final, obra básicamente de Macca,
quien intentó realizar una especia de mini-ópera pop, en donde se encuentran eclécticos ritmos y
sonoridades. La propia "You never give me your money" está fragmentada en cuatro partes: "You
never give me you money", "That magic feeling", "One sweet dream" y el final con "1,2,3,4,5,6,7...all
good children go to heaven". Posteriormente vendrán las lennonianas "Sun King", onírica pieza con
John chapurreando varios idiomas, entre ellos, el español; "Mean Mr. Mustard", canción en la cual
Paul utiliza el fuzz bass y la rítmica "Polythene Pam", tema dedicado a una fan de Liverpool llamada
Pat Hodgett, que tenía como singular afición comer pedacitos de polietileno. Paul continúa el medley
con "She came in through the bathroom window", canción escrita en homenaje a las "Apple Scruffs",
admiradoras del grupo que los acosaban insistentemente en la puerta del estudio o pululando cerca
de sus hogares. La historia fabula sobre un hecho real acaecido cuando un grupo de fans entraron
en casa de Paul por la ventana de su cuarto de baño. "Golden Slumbers" es una preciosa balada que
McCartney adaptó con su extraordinario sentido de la melodía, tras hallar en casa de su padre la
canción tradicional del mismo título. Esta pieza enlaza con "Carry that weight" y de nuevo un
fragmento de "You never give me your money", preludio de "The End", canción que contiene el único
solo de batería de Ringo en toda su trayectoria con los Beatles y que era la indicada para poner punto
y final a su carrera sino fuera por la inclusión de "Her majesty", exigua coda acústica escrita por Paul
que, en principio, iba a unir "Mean Mr. Mustard" y "Polythene Pam", y tras ser desechada por el propio
McCartney fue incluida al final de la cinta por Geoff Emerick. Cuando sonó de manera sorprendente
tras "The End", los Beatles decidieron dejarla en el album, uno de los grandes logros en la historia
de la música moderna.

• Let It Be (1969)
La vuelta a lo básico por parte de unos fracturados Beatles, que recuperan la esencia más
rock'n'roll en unos temas arreglados y producidos por el legendario Phil Spector, quien
desarrolló un magnífico y desestimado trabajo presentando un excelente álbum a la altura de
sus más destacadas obras.

El folk en "Two of us" de sencilla melodía, el rock'n'roll de "909" con Billy Preston al órgano o
el blues en "For you blues" (citando a Elmore James) de Harrison son aceptables piezas que
complementan los mejores momentos del disco iniciados por la gloriosa "Across the
universe", un prodigio de composición enfatizado por la acertada producción de Spector y
continuados por "I me mine", una de las mejores y más subestimadas obras de George
Harrison, que presenta una ensoñadora melodía y una preciosa y plañidera vocalización.

El canto consolador de la mítica balada "Let it be", el poderío bluesy de "I've got a feeling", la
embriagadora vuelta a las raíces del rock de "Get back" y la criticada pero bella producción de
Spector añadiendo suntuosos arreglos orquestales y vocales para "The long and winding
road" que McCartney deseaba con la desnudez de su voz y piano son otras joyas de un disco
a revalorizar.
