The Beatles

In honor of the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show fifty years ago today, I watched Across The Universe this morning and plan to listen to some of my favorite Beatles songs when I get in my car.

I know Beatles aficionados were skeptical (at best) about Julie Taymor’s 2007 film (and many may still feel that way), but I love it and think the film is remarkable in expressing the myriad of personal ways people listening to the music at the time may have filtered it into their own lived experiences.

It’s a beautiful film…
