Beatles, again!

It is an old saying (A. R. Dixit and P. D. Dixit, 2003) that any Beatles song can be your favourite Beatles song if you listen to it continuously for 5-6 times. This statement as true it is for almost all of the Beatles songs, some of them continue to be exceptions over generations. E.g. this one:

What would you think if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day,
(Are you sad because you're on your own?)

No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love.

Would you believe in a love at first sight
Yes, I'm certain that it happens all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light
I can't tell you but I know it's mine,

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I just need someone to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends.

But this is the original song I am talking about!

Aila....it was not about your song dumass! by the "post as the one above" I was referring to the first comment :)!!

For a second I thought I had lost you when you replied "I don't see a problem" with comparing The Beatles with Himesh!

Roger Waters said...

Ah, I didn't even bother to reply to that comment. And how can you think that!!
