50 years after the historic airing of The Beatles playing live on the Ed Sullivan show, Beatlemania may not make young girls scream and faint anymore, but many listeners continue to hold their music near and dear to their hearts.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of books have been written about The Beatles. I have read a mere fraction of what is available. Some paint the lads from Liverpool in holy light, while others darken the lingering shadows and tell a more sinister tale. While not all music lovers love The Beatles, most respect their profound effect on the musical landscape that continues to evolve and annoy parents to this day.
To honor my favorite band, I would like to share my top five favorite Beatles albums!
