Who in the world would not know about John Lennon, I mean this man is a legend. It has already been over four decades since the leader of the English rock band The Beatles died however, his popularity does not seem to end. He is still remembered for his iconic songwriting and musical abilities, named one of the greatest musicians of all time.

Lennon has written many songs and he had a very successful music career both as a solo artist and in a band. He was so successful that many iconic and legendary musicians like Freddie Mercury were inspired by Lennon. His songs were listed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and he also won the 1981 Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

In this handy article, we will be looking into that one favorite song of Lennon from his band which he defended. So which song was it? well first of all there are a number of Beatles songs that are favorites of John including [I Am The] Walrus and Strawberry Fields but we are not here to talk about these songs. So which song is it then? find out further in the article.

John Lennon asked for Help

Back in 1970, Lennon was asked by Jann Wenner (Rolling Stone founder) what his favorite Beatles songs are. And Lennon replied, “I always liked [I Am The] Walrus, Strawberry Fields, Help, In My Life.” But the interviewer couldn’t help but interject. He yelped: Why ‘Help!’?”

Lennon then answered, “Because I meant it. It’s real.” Talking more about it Lennon said that he really wanted someone to come and help him. “The lyric is as good now as it was then, it’s no different, you know. It makes me feel secure to know that I was that sensible or whatever,” John explained.

John continued talking about the song and he also mentioned the writing process of his song Help. He said that he did not use any drugs when writing that song. He said that he was “aware of himself.” He further said, “That’s with no acid, no nothing… well pot or whatever. It was just me singing ‘help’, and I meant it, you know?”

This is something really important and it hit me really hard personally because just like me there are many people who think if we have wealth and fame we’ll be truly happy, however, Lennon had both wealth and fame but he still needed someone to help him.

Although the lyric of the song Help is really deep but simple, there was something Lennon did not really like about the song. Talking about the aspect Lennon did not like John Lennon said, “I don’t like the recording that much. The song I like. We did it too fast to try and be commercial.”

Whenever John has talked about this song he has also mentioned that he really needed and asked for someone’s help and he hoped for someone to see his pain. And here ladies and gentlemen is a very important lesson we often try to fight our demons by ourselves and hide our pain by putting on fake happiness but we have to keep in mind that just like Lennon we really need to ask for our friends’ help whenever we are going through something bad.

John Lennon was a legend and he still was very brave to ask someone to notice his pain and asked someone to help him so why should not we ask for help when we are in pain? we need to take lessons from the musician’s life not just listen to his music.

Whether someone is a fan of The Beatles or not, they do know one thing The Beatles broke the boundaries of music. Their music proved to be revolutionary and they became really hit topping charts in American and English music. The English rock band The Beatles were formed back in 1960 and they ruled and rocked the music industry for many years.

Ringo Starr is one of the original members of the band and he joined the band two years after it was formed in 1962. Today’s topic is Ringo’s favorite song by the Beatles. And we all know that everybody has a different taste and something we like might not work for others, similarly, Starr might love and consider different songs his favorite from John Lennon’s, Paul McCartney’s, or George Harrison’s.

Although his favorite song varies from the other members, he does have a favorite song from his band the Beatles. So what song are we talking about here? you will find that out further in the article, so if you really want to know what or which Beatles song Ringo considers his favorite then keep reading the article to find the answer.

Ringo Starr’s favorite Beatles song

Beatles have many hit albums and songs and with a lot of options, it is pretty obvious Ringo would have several favorite songs.

A year ago Ringo was on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert where he was asked if he get to listen to only one song for the rest of his life then which song it would be to which he replied,

“[The Beatles’] ‘Come Together. There’s lots of other favorites, but if you want one, ‘Come Together’ can’t be bad,” Starr said, noting it was his favorite Beatles song. “I just think it worked perfectly with the band and the song and John being John. I loved that moment.

And as mentioned there are many songs from the Beatles and of course come together is not the only favorite song of Ringo from the Beatles. Each time he was asked about his favorite song from the band he gave different songs so let’s discuss each of those songs one by one.

So another one of Ringo’s favorite songs from the Beatles is “Rain.” As per Ringo Rain has really captured his drumming ability to its peak. Talking about the song he said,“I was into the snare and hi-hat. I think it was the first time I used this trick of starting a break by hitting the hi-hat first instead of going directly to a drum off the hi-hat, I think it’s the best out of all the records I’ve ever made. ‘Rain’ blows me away. It’s out in left field. I know me and I know my playing… and then there’s ‘Rain.” Ringo further added, “I was possessed.”

Furthermore, he also said in 2008 when he was in Off The Record and Dave Stewart asked him about his favorite Beatles song and he said “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road?” Moreover, he also explains that he used to say Rain is his favorite but it got out of the way. He said, “Being on so many that is always a difficult question. I mean there’s several reasons for liking each one, really. I’ve always said ‘Rain’ because then it just got out of the way.” I love Why Don’t We Do It in the Road? Ringo further added.

Now let’s talk about how Ringo got into the Beatles. Before he was a member of the Beatles, he used to be in a different band called Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, however, later he left the band, and on August 14, 1962, he joined the Beatles after Lennon asked him to join. And on August 16 the original drummer of the band Pete Best replaced him with Ringo.

And although Ringo was a better drummer than Pete, fans did not want Pete to leave and even shouted at them during their show. Moreover, George Harrison the quiet Beatle even got his eye black by one of the upset fans. Fans were really not happy with their decision and upset fans were on a rampage so they had to hire bodyguards temporarily. However, as time passed people started to see the difference and they started loving Ringo.

Cliff Burton is one of the biggest names in the music world. He was the bassist of the famous American heavy metal band Metallica. And although most people just give importance to vocalists, guitarists, or drummers and often ignore the bassist, the truth is that Cliff Burton was someone very precious to the band because it was Burton responsible for the band’s early success.

Band members often talk about Burton and how he helped grow the band to prominence. Although the popular bassist was gone too soon, however, still he left a huge impact in the music world and on his band Metallica. Many fans want to know about Burton’s favorite song from Metallica so we are here to share the information.

Today in this handy article or blog we will talk about Cliff Burton’s favorite Metallica song. Luckily before Burton’s death, he gave an interview where he discussed his favorites from the band. Moreover, Burton’s father has also given talked about his favorite Metallica song.

Cliff Burton’s favorite Metallica song

Although Cliff Burton only got to play on three studio albums he was really legendary that changed the music industry and Metallica forever. As much as he played bass for the band he was also the person behind the lyrics. He helped the band to write masterpieces like Master of Puppets, Creeping Death, Fade to Black, and more.

Before his untimely death in 1986 Burton talked to the Thrash Metal magazine about the band’s new studio album Master of Puppets. Burton said, “I think, is the best Metallica song yet. The lyrics are getting a lot better. Everything is kind of growing a bit. It’s progressing.” Furthermore, Master of Puppets was also the last album Burton played on.

Back in 2019 Burton’s father Ray Burton was asked if he has any favorite song from Metallica and he said, “Yeah, ‘Orion’ was my favorite. When they go into the waltz tempo 3/4 time, just there’s something about it that I like and, you know, like, Cliff one time…” Furthermore, he also said that Cliff recorded part of Orion in their house.

“He had a little instrument and he would record one part of it and then turn around and record another to go along with that,” Ray explained.

This album was awarded six-time platinum certification by RIAA back in 2003 after six million copies were sold in the United States. After that Music Canada also awarded the album a six-time platinum certification. Additionally, it was the first metal song to be preserved in the National Recording Registry as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

As mentioned band members still talk about how great Cliff Burton was, back in 2016, Laris Ulrich, the drummer of the band talked to The Guardians about the last or final album Cliff worked on. He said, “I remember how brilliant he was at arranging harmonies and the melodic side of everything. He had to hang around a lot while we sorted out the drums and rhythm guitars. He was really, really bored. But when he came to record his parts he was out of this world.”

Moreover, Ulrich later said that when they were mixing the record they used to hang out with Rod Smallwood, Iron Maiden’s manager, and when Ulrich heard the “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” song in the background, Smallwood said it was really cool. Ulrich said, “Rod said: That was really cool. Can I hear it again?’ It was as if God had spoken. I thought: ‘You know what? I think this is going to work out.”

Cliff Burton’s death

As mentioned Cliff Burton was a musical genius and in 2011 he was even polled as the greatest bassist of all time. Back in 1986, Metallica was in Sweden on their Damage Inc. tour. According to the band’s lead guitarist the band Burton and he drew cards to get to choose where they were sleeping and as Burton won he decided to sleep in the bunk.

And on September 17, the bus skidded and flipped, and since there were no safety restraints on the bunks Burton was hurled out the window and later bus fell on him. As the bus fell on him he died on the spot instantly. He was only 24 years old at the time of his death. As per the bus driver, there was black ice and the accident happened because the bus hit the ice.

However, according to James Hetfield, frontman and vocalist of the band, he went to look for the black ice but did not find one. Furthermore, he also said that he believe the accident happened because the driver was drunk. Later a local photographer Lennart Wennberg who was at the crash spot was also asked about the chances of the accident due to black ice to which he said “out of the question.”

He said that the road was really dry and the temperature was not freezing. Later the police also found no traces of the ice. However, later the driver was found not guilty and he was set free without any charges. Burton’s ashes were scattered at Maxwell Ranch. After his death, Jason Curtis Newsted took Burton’s place.

After his untimely death, Metallica wrote a tribute song in Burton’s name called “To Live Is to Die.” Later in 2009 he along with Metallica’s other band members was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and since Cliff could not receive it, his father Ray Burton went there on his behalf and joined Metallica in the ceremony. On January 15, 2020, Ray Burton died and went to join his son.

Everything must come to an end and although the music legend was gone too soon he will forever be remembered. His legacy still lives along with the music he created and his music will last forever which means he will also be remembered for infinity. Furthermore, as long as the band lives they will always be remembering him and there is no doubt that they will also continue keeping Burton’s legacy alive. Certainly, Burton was an absolute legend.

George Harrison was one of the original members of the English rock band The Beatles. He was also one of the most spiritual musicians of his time. He was really a great musician which is the reason today he is considered one of the greatest musicians of all time. Furthermore, George is also considered the “quiet Beatle” because he did not talk much like John Lennon or Paul McCartney in the interviews.

Moreover, unlike the other artists, Harrison would stay quiet just like his nickname and he also used to avoid questions such as his favorite songs from the band. However, we are here today with much research to provide you with the answer to your question about George Harrison’s favorite Beatles songs.

As mentioned above, Harrison used to avoid questions and always stay quiet, which is why he got his nickname. While Lennon and McCartney were always in the spotlight, Harrison liked to remain silent and do music. Now let’s get right into today’s topic and find out what George Harrison’s favorite Beatles songs are.

George Harrison’s favorite Beatles songs

Although Harrison used to stay quiet and silent he had much to offer to the band and to the music world. He has written numbers songs for the band including you like me too much and more. It was a bit of a hassle while researching Harrison’s favorite Beatles songs because unlike Lennon Harrison did not talk much or share what was on his mind and there are too many sites spreading fake news so to very each one it took quite a lot of effort.

However, after doing proper research we are here and we think we know what Harrison’s favorite Beatles songs are. Before we get into the songs it might be better if we know about Harrison’s favorite album first. And Harrison himself considered The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album released on September 26, 1969, as his favorite album.

Furthermore, this album was a super hit as it became number 1 in both United Kingdom as well as in the United States. As the album was a hit, there were many popular hit songs but in an interview, Harrison revealed that Because might be his favorite song. In an interview, he said that this song “is one of the most beautiful things” they have ever done. Moreover back in 1969, he told Ritchie Yorke that Because might be his favorite song from the Abbey Road album. He said, “I think this is possibly my favorite one on the album because it’s just so simple, the lyrics are so simple.”

Harrison explained that he really loves simple lyrics and since Beautiful has very simple lyrics Harrison immediately liked it. Many believe that it was Harrison’s favorite song from the album as well as from his band The Beatles. However, there are also various other songs from the band that is believed or said to be Harrison’s favorite.

One of the Beatles’ songs people believe was Harrison’s favorite is “Norwegian Wood” from their 1965 album Rubber Soul. In an old interview, Harrison discussed this song along with Lennon and he said that he really felt where the song was coming from. Furthermore, he also said that he enjoyed this song.

Other than that he also seemed to like another song from the band and that song also happens to be the favorite of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Did you guess “Strawberry Fields Forever?” well, if yes then you guessed it correctly. Furthermore, many also say that Harrison’s other favorite song from the Beatles is “Eleanor Rigby.”

Another song Harrison really loved is “This Boy” from their album Meet the Beatles! This album was released back in 1964 and it seems that Harrison really enjoyed and loved this song because when he talked about this song he said that it was a good song. However, what we must keep in mind is that Harrison didn’t say it was his favorite but it is only people’s opinion which you can find on the internet.

There are a few other songs including Every Little Thing, She Came In Through the Bathroom Window, In My Life, and others. However, since Harrison never mentioned any of these songs as his favorite so I don’t think they will be worth mentioning here. However, if you still want to know what songs are then you can simply search them on google or if you want us to write about them then we will just let us know.

George Harrison’s Legacy

The most important and greatest legacy left by the music legend is his music. Although we lost him on November 29, 2001, he is still talking and blessing us with his music. And what we must keep in mind is that no matter how beautiful someone or something is they will eventually pass just like Harrison’s song “All Things Must Pass.”

Certainly, Harrison is one of the greatest music legends of all time because even after more than twenty years have passed since Harrison died, we are still talking about him and listening to his music every once in a while. He is also one of the best-selling solo artists not to mention one of the greatest guitarists of all time.

Furthermore, as mentioned above George Harrison was also one of the most spiritual music artists of his time. Harrison was a devout Hindu and used to follow Hindu tradition. Following the Hindu tradition, he also used Indian instruments in his music which you can find in his songs like “The Inner Light.”

As mentioned above, Harrison died over twenty years ago losing the battle with lung cancer but as a fan, we are here to always keep his legacy and protect it. Furthermore, Harrison’s only son Dhani Harrison also followed his father’s steps and is now a renowned British musician who has won several prestigious awards including Grammy Award for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package, just like his father he is also into Indian culture.

Dave Grohl is one of the biggest names in the rock music world, this guy literally is a member of two of the most popular rock bands of all time Nirvana and Foo Fighters. Grohl joined the American rock band Nirvana back in 1990 as a drummer after the original drummer of the band Chad Channing left the band.

Nirvana had success and was considered one of the top rock bands in the 1990s however, everything changed after the frontman and vocalist of the band Kurt Cobain committed suicide on April 5, 1994. Following Cobain’s death, Nirvana disbanded. While many believed the music career of the remaining bands is over, Grohl was not leaving the music world just yet.

About a year after Cobain’s death, Grohl formed his own rock band named Foo Fighters. However, Grohl changed from drummer to vocalist and guitarist of the band. And even though Grohl was not much of a lyricist or guitarist, he still nailed at both and without any nepotism, his band became really famous.

Grohl has struggled a lot for his music career and considering the hard work he deserves where he is today. Furthermore, we have discussed briefly how the band Foo Fighters was formed, and now let’s focus on today’s topic, does Dave Grohl have favorite songs from his own band?

Dave Grohl Favorite Bands of All Time

Dave Grohl’s favorite Foo Fighters song

After the tragic demise of the vocalist of Nirvana Kurt Cobain, Dave stayed far from the music world for a while because he would remember Cobain’s death but after some time he started writing and recording songs himself. The first-ever album “Foo Fighters” from his band was actually recorded by himself, he played all the instruments alone.

Talking about Grohl’s favorite song from the band Foo Fighters, back in 1997, the band released their song named “Everlong” and many people think that this song is Grohl’s favorite song band. And why would not it? after all, this song became so famous that it was listed third on the list of US Billboard Alternative Songs. Moreover, it was also ranked number 123 on the Billboard Global 200.

Many say that Everlong is the greatest song ever written by Grohl. This song is so good that even legendary singer Bob Dylan expressed his desire to do that song. We all know how great of a song Everlong is but do you know what inspired Grohl to write this song? while he was focused on his music career and Foo Fighter, his relationship with his wife Jennifer Youngblood started to crumble, and finally, they got divorced.

Later he fell in love with the vocalist and guitarist of Veruca Salt, Louise Post. And his love for Post inspired Grohl to write this song. Talking about this song Grohl said, “That song’s about a girl that I’d fallen in love with, and it was basically about being connected to someone so much, that not only do you love them physically and spiritually, but when you sing along with them you harmonise perfectly.” Although their relationship ended after Grohl cheated on Post with actress Winona Ryder, they are still a good friend and Post said that she gave back vocal to the song.

Now since everyone says that Everlong is Grohl’s greatest and favorite song so that must be true right? no, that is only half true. Well, it might be Grohl’s greatest but it is not his favorite.

It seems to me that Grohl considers “These Days” as the best song he’s written. So one might even say that These Days is Grohl’s favorite song from his band. This song was released back in 2011 and talking to Q Magazine about this song Grohl said that it “might be the best song I’ve ever written.” So is this his favorite song? well, it might be but we cannot be certain because Grohl has never mentioned any of his favorite songs from Foo Fighters ever.

Dave Grohl from Nirvana to Foo Fighters

Grohl was one of the crucial members of Nirvana and he is one of the greatest drummers of all time. Grohl was from Alexandria, Virginia, and went to Thomas Jefferson High School however, he later dropped out of school to join the band Scream however, in 1990 they disbanded.

Grohl made friends with Melvins and during the 1990 tour of Scream, Buzz Osborne the guitarist of the band took Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic to see Scream. And as Nirvana was looking for a new drummer so Grohl went to audition and after passing the audition he became the official drummer and member of Nirvana. He was with Nirvana for a couple of years from 1990 to 1994 until Kurt Cobain killed himself.

After Cobain’s passing, Nirvana disbanded, and as mentioned above after some time Grohl decided to form a band of his own. And then he founded the band what we now know as Foo Fighters along with the former rhythm guitarist of Nirvana Pat Smear and other members including William Goldsmith and Nate Mendel.

Like this Grohl became one of the music legends alive today. As mentioned he was with Nirvana for around four years and Nirvana is considered one of the most influential rock music bands of all time. Furthermore, Nirvana is also one of the best-selling bands out there. Moreover, Nirvana has received various honorary awards including the Grammy awards. Nirvana is also listed as one of the 100 greatest artists (bands) in history. Moreover, Nirvana has sold over 75 million records globally.

After Nirvana disbanded, Grohl along with other members formed the rock band Foo Fighters in 1994. And just like Nirvana Foo Fighters is also one of the best rock bands of all time and they have also received various applause and honorary awards. They have won Grammy awards 15 times already. Furthermore, they have also won the first-ever Global Icon award. By 2015 Foo Fighters had sold over 12 million albums only in the United States and as per Sony Music Japan, Foo Fighters have sold more than 32 million albums worldwide.

Foo Fighters band is still active to this day and on October 28 this year, they will drop their new album.

Queen is certainly one of the biggest and most famous rock bands of all time. Even if there are people who don’t know about the Queen must probably have heard their songs like We Will Rock You and Bohemian Rhapsody. Queen was formed back in 1970 in London and they have sold 300 million records globally.

The band was founded by the legend Freddie Mercury himself along with the band’s guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor, and bassist John Deacon. And although Freddie is mostly known as the frontman or the vocalist of the Queen, he took a pause or break from the band and led his solo music career.

It is truly unfortunate that Freddie is no more with us but his legacy still lives. He died on November 24, 1991, in London and was 45 years old at the time of his death. However, he is still with us today through his music and his bandmates still carry his legacy.

Freddie has expressed his love for one particular song from his band Queen so which song is it? we will discuss this further in this article. Moreover, while we are on it we will also take a good look at Freddie’s death, how he died, and his last days.

John Lennon Favorite The Beatles’ Song

Freddie Mercury’s favorite Queen song

Many believe that Bohemian Rhapsody is the greatest song by Queen. After all, this was the song that made Queen famous. However, Freddie believed that Bohemian Rhapsody is not the greatest song by the band but he said that Somebody to Love was better. Did Freddie himself say that? he must have because Mercury: An Intimate Biography of Freddie Mercury, a book by Lesley-Ann Jones written that Freddie called Somebody to Love Queen’s gospel.

Many also believe that Somebody to Love is Mercury’s favorite song but is it really? As per my research, Freddie never mentioned Somebody to Love as his favorite song from the band but he said that it’s a better song.

However, there are also various reports that show it was indeed his favorite song but he just did not want to admit it why? because it was Freddie who wrote and composed the song so he did not want to sound or look excessively proud of himself. Above in the video, you can watch Freddie performing this song and we can see that he has put everything into it. Furthermore, in a closer look, you can even see Freddie’s eye tearing up.

So the question arises, is somebody to love really Freddie Mercury’s favorite song from his band? well, that’s a million-dollar question and nobody has a true answer to it but just a theory. However, as mentioned many believe that this is Freddie’s favorite song but there are also those who believe that Freddie just thinks that somebody to love is better.

And the truth is since Freddie never talked about his favorite songs from his band in any interview, we don’t really know or have any idea about his favorite song from the band.

The Queen Song Freddie Mercury Wrote For John Lennon

Last days of Freddie Mercury

Thinking about Freddie’s death still breaks fans’ hearts, after all, he was and is still loved by millions of people. As mentioned above Freddie died on November 24, 1991. Remembering Freddie’s last days, Brain May’s wife Anita Dobson said, “I remember he said ‘When I can’t sing anymore darling, then I will die. I will drop dead.”

Furthermore, talking about the last time the public saw Freddie before his death was in the music video of their song These Are The Days Of Our Lives. He died of bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS but he only announced he had AIDS a day before his death.

Talking about this, the drummer of the band Roger Taylor said in a documentary video, “It was announced before he died but he did not want to be the object of pity or scrutiny and within 24 hours it was gone. It was probably perfect timing. Bloody good move I thought.”

Brian May, the guitarist of the band also said, “We felt quite comfortable about that. When we were in the studio and the studio doors were closed we had fun. For Queen as a family, it was fantastic. We were never closer. But then Freddie was suffering.” Because Freddie had AIDS they did not perform live shows or concerts after 1986 but they were still recording their songs in the studio. Their final album is Innuendo which was released in 1991.

Freddie was with his love, his partner Jim Hutton. Before Freddie’s demise, they went on a holiday in Switzerland however, after that Freddie started to grow weak and two weeks before his death he stopped taking all the medicines except painkillers. On November 21, Jim realized Freddie’s time is near and he said,

“I knew that the end was very near. That night I took special care of him. He dozed and I lay next to him on top of the bed. He only had to elbow me gently and I’d be awake if he wanted anything. When dawn broke, I was already wide awake, quietly watching television. Freddie was still asleep, cuddled inside my arm and holding on to my hand. Every so often he’d softly squeeze it. ‘Do you love me?’ he’d asked when he woke. More than ever he wanted to hear how much he was treasured. ‘Yes, I love you,’ I whispered and kissed him on the forehead”

On the day Freddie died, he woke up at six in the morning, and Jim helped Freddie to the restroom. After that Jim terribly weak Freddie to his bed and while Jim was helping Freddie, he heard a crack. He said, “It sounded like one of Freddie’s bones breaking, cracking like the branch of a tree. He screamed out in pain and went into a convulsion.”

After that, the doctors came and stayed there till noon. Talking about the moment Freddie died Jim said, “As I was changing Freddie into a clean T-shirt and pair of boxer shorts, I felt him try to raise his left leg to help a little. It was the last thing he did. I looked down at him, knowing he was dead. He looked radiant. One minute he was a boy with a gaunt, sad little face, and the next he was a picture of ecstasy. Freddie’s whole face went back to everything it had been before. He looked finally and totally at peace. Seeing him like that made me happy in my sadness. I felt an overwhelming sense of relief. I knew that he was no longer in pain.”

Back in 2015, he was in an interview with San Jose Sharks where revealed his favorite bands, he said, “Favourite all-time band is hard because there are so many. Led Zeppelin is in there, Motörhead, boy… they all offer a little bit different. But if I was stuck for one… Black Sabbath.”

Furthermore, Hetfield is also a fan of Venom. Although Hetfield is a hard-core metal fan he is also into rock music and pops as he is also a fan of rock bands including Queen, The Beatles, Thin Lizzy, The Beach Boys, and Sex Pistols. Furthermore, he is also a fan of Elvis Presley and Elton John.

Back in 1991 Hetfield also showered his love and support to Nirvana and said, “When all that Eighties hair metal was getting overproduced, Nirvana came along with this thrashy garage sound and a huge hook. It was what music needed.”

So even though Hetfield is more into hardcore metal he also is a fan of rock and pop music.

Whenever there is a talk about the most iconic rock bands of all time there will always come the name The Beatles and of course, when The Beatles’ names come to the front it’s obvious that the names of legendary musicians John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Although John is a legend himself, we are here to talk about Paul today.

Paul joined the band Quarrymen in 1957 which later evolved into the Beatles. Paul along with Lennon was the songwriter and singer of the band and they both have done so much for the band as well as the music world. This is why they are considered legends today.

As mentioned Paul has written several songs for the band and sang too but does he have any favorite songs from the Beatles? yes and fortunately he has revealed his favorite songs from the Beatles in various interviews.

Paul McCartney revealed his favorite songs

Back in 2020, Paul was in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe where he talked with Lowe regarding his and John’s songwriting. Furthermore, he also talked about his favorite Beatles songs in the interview. He was asked about his favorite Beatles songs and he said, “I always say You Know My Name (Look Up The Number). We had such fun making it. It’s like a little comedy record. And I just remember the joy of making it.” Along with this song he also revealed that he really loves the song Let It Be.

He further said that there are many songs from the Beatles he loves including Strawberry Fields, Hey Jude, Eleanor Rigby, and Blackbird. Other than Apple Music, McCarthey also went to Adam Buxton’s podcast where he was again asked about his favorite songs from the Beatles or from Lennon. He named a few songs including Julia, he said, “Julia is about the mum he couldn’t live with. So I loved the poignancy of that because I’d been with him round to Julia’s house to visit her. And I knew how deeply he loved her. So Julia I would go with.”

And as mentioned above, Paul always loved the song From Me to You as well as This Boy. While he was with Lowe he was asked the regular question and he did share the usual favorite songs from the Beatles but he also revealed other songs that he absolutely loves from the band. He said that he likes every song from the band and it was really hard to choose one but later he choose Yesterday as his favorite song from the Beatles.

In 1995 Paul shared one of his favorite Beatles songs, “One of my favorites on the Anthology is, And Your Bird Can Sing, which is a nice song, but this take of it was one we couldn’t use at the time. John and I got a fit of the giggles while we were doing the double-track. You couldn’t have released it at the time. But now you can. Sounds great just hearing us lose it on a take,” the music legend told. The 80 years old music artist said the same thought about their song Rain.

Also back in 1984, Paul shared a weird story about his song Fixing a Hole. The night they were about to record the song he said that a guy came to his (Paul) house and claimed himself Jesus. Furthermore, Paul said that they even took the guy with them in the recording session.

Paul has also talked about another of his favorite Beatles songs Penny Lane. Talking about the song he said that Lennon came and helped him write the third verse. They wrote the song remembering their childhood memories. Moreover, McCartney also expressed his love for George Harrison’s written song Inner Light. Similarly, he also loved Harrison’s song Something and he even said “I think it’s the best he’s written.” As mentioned above McCartney also really likes the song Happiness Is A Warm Gun and Let It Be.

However, just as mentioned above McCartney likes every song from the Beatles and he never listed all of his favorite songs from the Beatles. It is just that he has talked about the above-mentioned songs when asked about his favorite songs from the band and the twenty songs mentioned above are most probably the special, favorite, adored, or cherished songs from his legendary band the Beatles.

Have you ever thought about what would Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Jimi Hendrix, and Kurt Cobain may look like if they got still alive?

Well, one of the world’s best AI artist has generated these legends’ imagined photos and answered the question of what they may look like today.

Turkish artist Alper Yesiltas has generated a photo using the latest technology to create a fresh current look-like photo of these music legends. Here we have listed a photo of Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouse.

Yesiltas said, “With the development of AI technology, I’ve been excited for a while, thinking that ‘anything imaginable can be shown in reality,’ “When I started tinkering with technology, I saw what I could do and thought about what would make me the happiest. I wanted to see some of the people I missed again in front of me and that’s how this project emerged.”

Yesiltas used software like Adobe Lightroom, VSCO, and some AI program called as Remini to increase the quality of the photo.

“With the development of AI technology, I’ve been excited for a while, thinking that ‘anything imaginable can be shown in reality,’” said Yesiltas in a statement. “When I started tinkering with technology, I saw what I could do and thought about what would make me the happiest. I wanted to see some of the people I missed again in front of me and that’s how this project emerged.”

When he was asked which artist you find the most realistic than Yeesiltas answer was “Michael Jackson”. He states that the Michael Jackson photos look so real this he was so confused and very happy seeing his favorite musican current state photo.

“Naturally, the moment I like the most is when I think the image in front of me feels real. The time I spend with a single image varies, but I would say it takes a while.”

Freddie Mercury and John Lennon are one of the greatest artists of all time and their band is one of the world’s most successful bands. Everyone who listens to rock music is very familiar with The Beatles and Queen.

Although The Beatles were formed 10 years earlier than Queen, still, The Beatles are #1 in the world of classic rock music. They sold more albums they breaked many records than any band has ever come to close within just 10 years of their band time.

Many people know about these two guys but there are few peoples who don’t know that Freddie Mercury has written a song dedicated to The Beatles’ frontman John Lennon.

Freddie was quite a different guy, his singing styles are also very different compared to others. His awesome voice and vocal range, his best skills to blend any tone from high to low notes are surely rare in the world of music. So, he got the title of legend who can’t be replaced or not be re-created.

What Freddie Mercury thought of John Lennon

When we checked out his interview it is sure that Freddie loves his style and his life, he never tries to compare himself with others, and he got full confidence that he was a legend.

But sometimes Freddie has confessed that he loves John Lennon and admires him a lot. Mercury always thought that John was extraordinary and did his best to influence the world with modern types of music.

When Freddie heard the death news of John Lennon, he was broken inside and very sad, he use to think only about John Lennon more than any other because John was the only one Freddie admired a lot.

Mercury said “I would never like to [be] put in any kind of parallel with John Lennon at all. Because he was just the greatest. Sorry, that’s done.”

This statement led some Queen fans to fury, they always thought that Freddie is incomparable and top 1 among all the singers but many Queen fans admit this statement was true.

Mercury said “It’s not a matter of less talent or more talent. It’s just a certain people capable of doing certain things better than somebody else. I just feel that I’m not equipped enough to do certain things that John Lennon did. And I don’t think anybody should.”

December 8, 1980, is one of the devasting day for all the music fans and music creators, this day John Lennon was shot to death by The Beatles’ fan, outside his home in New York.

After John dies, musicians started to pay tribute where Queen also performed ‘Imagine’ in their musical tour. But just tributing a song in the name of John was not enough this is was Freddie thought and he wrote a song dedicated to John Lennon.

Freddie Mercury Wrote A Song To John Lennon

Mercury decided to honor John Lennon and he wrote a song named ‘Life Is Real (Song for Lennon)’, which was dedicated solely to Lennon. This song was first released on May 21, 1982, which was also a song from the album ‘Hot Space.’

‘Life is real’ Freddie died in 1991 due to AIDS, making this song even more meaningful, our life is real and we all will pass away.

Queen fans miss Freddie and John Lennon a lot, every band’s fans are also John’s fans in some way. He was a real legend, he influenced modern music, and some of Lennon’s masterpieces like ‘Imagine’ will always remain at the top of the music world.
