For the first time, every single lyric of every single Beatles song appears in one book, with the story behind its creation.
Who was ‘just seventeen’ and made Paul’s heart go ‘boom’? Who was ‘Lady Madonna’? Was there really an Eleanor Rigby? Why was Paul the ‘walrus’ and what inspired the lyrics to Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’?
The Complete Beatles Songs shatters many well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four’s rich legacy by investigating the events immortalised in The Beatles’ music and now occupying a special niche in popular culture’s collective imagination.
This beautifully packaged book is the first to contain a complete set of the lyrics of every single Beatles song. Each song from all of the Beatles’ studio albums and later official releases is discussed and the inspiration behind it examined.
