In My Life is a song by The Beatles from 1965. I love the harmonies in the music, and feel it has a sad yet yearning quality to it. I can't promise this video is actually the Beatles. There are so many bands that sound just like them, and put out video's to trick everyone. It's impossible to find all their songs on YouTube. Only a very few found on VEVO (YouTube) are absolutely verified as their original music. Michael Jackson's estate and Sony own the rights to their songs, and they are stingy about sharing. Paul McCarthy wants the rights back, and hopefully he will get them. Do you like early their early music? The picture is free to use from Wikimedia commons, and shows their first trip to the US.

I did a countdown of my ten favorite Beatles songs (and ten favorite solo Beatle songs), so yes, I do like them. I don't think they hung the moon the way a lot of people do, but I consider them "universal" in that there's something in there for everyone. Even noted anti-rock and roll protestor Frank Sinatra called "Something" "the greatest love song ever written."
Um, MJ's estate was bought out last year. "After announcing their intention to trigger their purchase option of Jackson's stake in the company, Sony officially agreed to buy out the Jackson estate's full 50 percent of Sony/ATV for $750 million, making Sony the sole owner of the Lennon-McCartney catalog as well as Sony/ATV's 750,000 songs." I'd say that likely is the real thing in the video, I played it back-to-back with my album and everything (even the stereo tracking) is exactly the same. I have several of their albums.
Paul McCartney's lawsuit this week is the latest twist in the long and winding ownership tale of the Beatles' catalog.

I thought it sounded like them, but I couldn't be sure. Thanks for verifying it for me. I didn't know that Sony bought out Jackson's estate. Thanks for the link. I always wondered how this happened, and it's so unfair that people took advantage over McCarthy and Lennon. Even before it was sold, they had such small percentages. Those with more power could get away with a lot more during this time.

I was around two years of age when the Beatles came to America in 1964. Yes I am huge Beatles fan of their early recording from "Meet The Beatles" and some of their early material which is fantastic to this day.
