Sound Bites: The Wit of the Beatles

by HelenCumberbatch (Compiler)


This work is a unique compilation of humorous sayings uttered by the Fab Four, interspersed with amusing tales from their days on tour and in the studio. It is a nostalgic look back at the sights and sounds of the 1960s and 1970s, through the words of the world's most successful pop band. It is fully illustrated with both colour and black-and-white photographs. It is a must-have purchase for Beatles fans across the globe. In "Sound Bites: The Wit of The Beatles," the down-to-earth humour of these four happy-go-lucky, cheeky working-class lads from Liverpool comes under the spotlight. It features a host of pithy remarks as well as tales of mirth taken from amusing episodes during their many film and music ventures, and accompanied by a selection of colour and black-and-white photographs. On 11 February 1964, the Beatles were interviewed by the press in Washington DC. Reporter - You and the snow came to Washington at the same time today. Which do you think will have the greatest impact? John - The snow! George - Will the snow last longer? Other Beatles - Yeah! Paul, Ringo and John, talking about the Vienna Boys' Choir in 1964 Reporter - The Vienna Boys' Choir is in town. Paul (jokingly) - Ahhhh! We must go and see 'em! I've heard they're a rave! Ringo - I believe they're wild, man. You gotta watch it when they're on. Paul - They blow up a bit of a storm, those fellas. Have you shakin'-their-heads seen 'em?" Ringo - I've seen 'em. Yeah. John - Vienna Boys' Choir Mania, I'd call it.
