    Paul McCartney achieves his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart in over 36 years, as his new studio effort, Egypt Station, bows atop the list. The set, which was released on Sept. 7 via MPL/Capitol Records, launches with a larger-than-expected 153,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 13 according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 147,000 were in traditional album sales. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track...

    Back in London, at the piano in his Cavendish Avenue bachelor pad, Paul played it for John and Yoko. When he got to the line “The movement you need is on your shoulder,” he told them, “I’ll change that, it’s a bit crummy.” John replied, “That’s the best line in it!” John heard this new tune as Paul cheering him on in his romance with Yoko. “I took it very personally,” John told Rolling Stone in 1968. “‘Ah, it’s me,’ I said. ‘It’s me.’ He says, ‘No, it’s me.’ I said, ‘Check. We’re going through the same bit.’ So we...

    Yoko Ono on Tuesday announced that she is releasing a new album at age 85, saying that her lifelong message of peace was sorely needed in 2018. "Warzone," which will come out on October 19, will revisit songs penned by Ono since 1970, concluding with "Imagine," her seminal pacifist anthem with her late husband John Lennon.

    South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, the first statewide elected official anywhere in America to endorse Donald Trump for president, joined Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily on Tuesday – the day of his primary election to keep the office to which he wasappointed after Nikki Haley joined the administration last year. McMaster spoke to Breitbart News Editor in Chief Alex Marlow about his efforts to fend off a challenge from Never Trump-linked former South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Templeton and about his recent presidential Twitter endorsement. McMaster related that he “wasn’t a bit surprised” at the...

    The Duke of Cambridge bestowed the honour on the Liverpool-born star at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace. "It means a lot actually," the musician told the BBC. "It means recognition for the things we've done. I was really pleased to accept this." The honour comes 53 years after the Beatles were all awarded the MBE - and Starr said he had missed his bandmates' companionship this time round. "I was a bit shaky today on my own," he said. (SNIP) Asked whether he wanted to be known as Sir Ringo, the musician, whose real name is Richard Starkey, replied: "I...

    Two British men believed to be members of a notorious Islamic State group (IS) cell have been seized by Syrian Kurdish fighters, US officials say. Alexanda Kotey, 34, and El Shafee Elsheikh, 29, were the last two members of the cell to remain at large. The four, all from London, were nicknamed "the Beatles" because of their British accents. US officials said the "execution cell" had beheaded more than 27 Western hostages and tortured many more. Who were the IS 'Beatles'? The US state department says the four-man cell was responsible for beheading several Westerners. They are: Mohammed Emwazi -...

    It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas Ev'rywhere you go... And that's true. It is. On Stuart Varney's show on Friday I even sang the title phrase, somewhat gloatingly, in reference to this (Theresa May has now set the date for the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union, and it looks like I'll be winning by hundred bucks with time to spare). That would be reason enough to celebrate Meredith Willson, the great son of Iowa who wrote "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas". But this Christmas marks another landmark event in Willson's life: the 60th...

    The final piece slid into place: buried deep in the mix of that shimmering opening chord, someone — maybe Ringo, but probably George Martin — had played an F on a piano. Dr Brown remembers that moment very clearly. The feeling that he'd just solved a Beatles mystery — one that had been buzzing around his subconscious brain for decades. "It was extraordinarily exciting. The chord was a mystery for such a long time, and people still talk about it," he said. "I think that maybe one of the legacies of the Beatles' music is the brilliance of what they...

    This verse of the song always perplexed me, could have John Lennon meant by "rather small" holes, bullet holes to fill the Albert Hall? I know this is "Paul is dead" stuff, but the one known shooter was 14 or 15 when this song came out in 67. Ah I read the news today, oh boy Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire And though the holes were rather small They had to count them all Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall I'd love to turn you on

    The Beatles were always breaking new ground, and on August 15, 1965, they did so again by essentially creating the stadium tour, as detailed in Ron Howard’s new doc on the band’s years on the road, “Eight Days a Week.” On that date, the group played before a record crowd of 55,600 at the then-brand new William A Shea Municipal Stadium in Queens, NY. The event was filmed for posterity by their manager, Brian Epstein, and Ed Sullivan’s Sullivan Productions for a television special, a 30 minute edit of which, representing most of the concert, can be seen exclusively in...

    For the last 15 years, I have been making good educational use of Lennon's famous song "Imagine." In one of my classes, analyzing the song helps Japanese students think critically about song lyrics. The song is very well known and popular in Japan, in part because Lennon's wife was Japanese. Yoko Ono's leftist beliefs also left their mark on the content of the song, a fact that will probably soon receive official recognition by the National Music Publishers Association. The song's doubtful assumptions and internal contradictions make it an instructive instance of the sloppy, shallow thinking we often find in...

    For many, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is The Beatles at their best. When it came out on 1 June 1967 it was unlike anything that had come before it. Experimental and immersive, it pushed musical boundaries. Half a century on, it remains one of the most influential albums of all time, as Beatles author Steve Turner explains: "It was artistically aspirational at a time when most of their contemporaries were still playing beat music of some kind or another. "They had these great ambitions. Paul was starting to go to the theatre, George was listening to Indian music,...

    The Best Album of All Time. That’s one hell of a claim. Even if The Beatles’ eighth studio album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band -- released 50 years ago, May 26, 1967, in the U.K. -- is the musically ground-breaking, hyper influential career high-water mark from The Best Band of All Time, those can still sound like fighting words. But there’s no hyperbole here. There’s widespread consensus: Sgt. Pepper’s has topped its fair share of Greatest Albums of All Time lists

    The early 1970s were a tough time in the lives of The Beatles. The band had dissolved among growing tensions between the musicians, and in 1970 they decided to go their separate ways and officially disbanded the most important group in modern music. By 1971, Paul McCartney found himself in one of the worst spots in his life, one that "he would look back on ... and tell everyone that he'd almost had a nervous breakdown." It was during this time that relations between The Beatles were at the most volatile, and in 1971, John Lennon sent a scathing letter...
