Exploring some of the greatest but unknown songs by The Beatles, album by album.

"Oh, That Magic Feelin'": The Beatles Albums

Anyone who knows me well will know that The Beatles are quite possibly the loves of my life. That's a bold statement I know but I'm sure there's plenty of people across the world who would maybe claim the same thing.

Without a doubt, The Beatles have changed the world forever. They've shaped music, fashion and pop culture in numerous different ways, as a band and even as solo artists in their own right. John, Paul, George and Ringo are icons and there probably isn't a person in the world who doesn't know them.

With their diverse catalogue of music, the band have produced anthems ranging from "Hey Jude", to "All You Need is Love", "Let It Be" and "Help!", their music is performed across all continents. I recently wrote an article listing 5 of my favourite underrated Beatles songs but I feel that didn't do them justice. Each album holds their own individual gems that just continue to make The Beatles' enduring legacy shine, even 50 years on.

So if you're a new fan who maybe wants to dive deeper into The Beatles' albums after not knowing where to start, or simply just a die-hard fan wanting to reflect and revisit some good music, I am going to list my personal favourite 5 tracks from each Beatles' album. Some may be known, some are just waiting to be loved. 12 albums, 8 years of magic - let's commence.

3. Got To Get You Into My Life

4. Love You To - (Harrison)

4. The Fool on the Hill

5. I Am The Walrus

[The last song is a big and well known hit for the band (even though it was banned by the BBC in the 1960s) but I am including it because although to some it may sound "weird", I love elements of "I Am The Walrus" such as the orchestral accompaniment within the music - it is just wonderful.]

1. Long, Long, Long - (Harrison)

2. I Will

3. Martha My Dear

4. Sexy Sadie

2. You Never Give Me Your Money

3. Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End medley

[As many fans and critics will tell you, Abbey Road is also a masterpiece so believe me when I say that every song is just incredible. Yet again I would happily recommend every song here if I could!]

Album 12: "Let It Be" (1970)

1. Two of Us

2. For You Blue - (Harrison)

3. Get Back

4. I've Got a Feeling

5. I Me Mine - (Harrison)

[Fact: "I Me Mine" was the last song that all 4 Beatles recorded together, hence why I am making it last on my list.]

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
