IN THEIR LIVES Great Writers on Great Beatle Songs

by | Read by Tandy Cronyn, Richard Poe, Kevin R. Free, Eva Kaminsky, John Keating

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This is a must for Beatles fans, which is just about everybody. Twenty-nine famous and somewhat famous authors opine about their favorite Beatles song. Some of the song choices are obvious, like "She's Leaving Home" and "Yesterday"; others are unusual, like "Helter Skelter." (Really, Chuck Klosterman?) The audiobook is performed by an ensemble of narrators who voice the opinions of the writers so perfectly that it's easy to forget they're not the writers themselves. My favorite entry is Gerald Early's entry on "I'm A Loser." He grew up in my hometown of Philadelphia, rocked to the same radio station, WIBG, and loved the Beatles as much as I did. Be warned, the audiobook will force you to replay your Beatles collection with new insights and appreciation. M.S. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
