Fifty Years Ago Today: A Hard Day’s Night Film

hard_days_night

Hello everyone!

Fifty years ago today, the Beatles’ film “A Hard Day’s Night” was released in the UK. Wow, it is pretty crazy to think that fifty years has passed since the hilarious black-and-white comedy film came out.

The screenplay was written by Alun Owen and the film was directed by Richard Lester, starring the Fab Four during the craziness of Beatlemania. It was perfect timing!

“A Hard Day’s Night” is one of the most influential musical films of all time. Time magazine rated it as one of the all-time great 100 films.

The film is full of funny moments, of course!

Check out the trailer below.

In addition, the entire movie is on YouTube! Watch it here!

Plus, Time magazine published a great article about today too!

Click here to read my original post about the movie and stay tuned for more posts!

Peace and love. Let it be.

Jacksonville Art Walk

Hello my fellow Beatles fans!

I appreciate everyone sticking with me this week with my flood of cruise photos.

So, here’s a quick Beatles post!

I’m back home from the first summer semester and one thing I love to do at home is go to Art Walk!

Art Walk is a downtown event on the first Wednesday of every month where the community comes together for a celebration of art and culture. There’s food trucks, street performers and music as well as galleries and museums you can walk through. There’s also tables where you can buy artwork, jewelry and more.

I haven’t been to Art Walk all year so I was very excited to go on Wednesday. And what did I find to make me even more happy?!

Beatles artwork of course! Check it out below!

I talked to the artist at this table and he explained that he uses acrylic and spray paint for his masterpieces. I was totally impressed!

Plus, he was super nice and let me take these pictures without buying anything. Unspoken Art Walk rules (for me, at least): don’t bring lots of cash cause you will buy everything, haha.

Anyway, there’s a quick around the town Beatles post for this week. After all the cruise photos are done, there will be more to come I promise.

Peace and love. Let it be.

Dear Prudence

Hey loves, my next post is a “Dear Prudence” Song Spotlight. Check out the Poylvore here. I picked bright and cheery colors for the outfits because this song makes me smile.

“Dear Prudence” was released on November 22, 1968 on “The White Album.”

Accoding to Wikipedia, the song was written for Prudence Farrow, actress Mia Farrow’s sister, who was present when the Beatles went to India to study with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Farrow became so serious about her meditation that she rarely ever came out of her cottage, so John Lennon wrote the song for her.

Wikipedia describes the song as “simple and innocent,” with “praise the beauty of nature in the lines: the sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful and so are you.” This song is actually one of 17 Beatles songs that mentions the sun or sunshine.

Hey Jude!

Hello loves!

Today’s next post is a Song Spotlight for the song “Hey Jude.” Check out the Polyvore here.

“Hey Jude” was released on August 28, 1968 with “Revolution” on the B-side. The song evolved from “Hey Jules” a song Paul McCartney wrote to comfort John Lennon’s son, Julian during his parents’ divorce. (So sweet of Paul!) Lennon was separating from his wife Cynthia because of his affair with Yoko Ono.

Anyway, this song was the first single released from the Beatles’ record label Apple Records. “Hey Jude” is over seven minutes long, but every minute counts. It is the longest single to ever top British charts and stayed at number one for sixteen weeks. It also topped the American charts for nine weeks.

I just really love this ballad song – everything about it. I love the music, lyrics and message. Watch the video below.

Until next time, Beatles fans. Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude!

Peace and love. Let it be.
