The Waiting Game
The first time I heard a Beatles song I was hooked. They were fresh to my ears. I attended their concert in Indianapolis with my friend Nancy who preferred The Beachboys. We were in the nosebleed section at
the Coliseum and barely heard a note for the screaming. The amplifiers were very small by today's standards. The word ANTICIPATION best describes my obsession. I waited eagerly for them to arrive in the US. I waited for them appear on Ed Sullivan, for each album, for my concert tickets, for the concert, for each album, for class to end so I could listen to my Beatle's records. They were worth the wait.
It was frustrating waiting for their first album to be released the following
They were on Sullivan's show for three consecutive Sundays. My friends and I quickly found that The Beatles were cute, funny and talented!
I think my own enthusiasm for the group was in part created by their harmonies which is what I still love about their work It's a cliche' but they really did provide the soundtrack of my college years., eclipsing The Kingston Trio who had previously been my musical obsession.
