A Little Night Music

Meet the Beatles track 6.

This was the song they opened with in their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.

One bark on “A Little Night Music

  1. When I was 11, my father decreed that I had to pay for everything myself except food and housing. I paid for clothes, school books, haircuts, etc.

    I got my hair cut once a year. Just before school photos.

    The Beatles appeared on Ed Sullivan.

    Before I got in the high school building, two teachers told me to get a haircut. I had another teacher tell me to get a haircut before I’d opened my locker.

    I was called out of my first period class to the dean of boys, who told me to go to the barber shop and get a haircut right then.

    No one had ever said a word about my hair length before. My hair was longer than any of those damned English men.

    I’ve hated the Beatles for 50 years.
