Beatle Mania

Something about way they wooed me
Attracted me like no others 
Something in the way they used me 

I won't ever be too old
to forget how those love songs moved me

Somewhere in their songs there grew
a sound, new, unlike the others
Something in their style so rare 
It  won't ever be too much
to sense how their music touched me

You're asking me will my love grow 
This I know...this I know
You stick around now it may show 
This I know.....this I know

Something in the way they played
And all I have to do is hear them 
Something for the soul they gave me  

It won't ever be too strange
to claim how the music changed me

    You know they chose the Beatles as a name to honor one who influenced their music, Buddy Holly and the CRICKETS. I can remember Feb of 1964 and waiting for Ed Sullivan to come on. It was a great era.

    Congrats on your win Carrie! Fantastic poem. Do you remember the bouncing balls on TV that we followed along with to sing songs? When I started reading this I could hear the Beatles music to the song in my head and my cursor was the bouncing ball so I could sing along with your words. Loved it!
