Pop culture has rediscovered the music of the Beatles. Throughout the most turbulent years of the 1960’s, the songs of Lennon and McCartney dominated the charts while the Beatles themselves became icons for everything that people loved or despised about that era of change. Back then, it was the Beatles image that filled everyone’s hearts and minds. Today, we can simply hear the massive quality of their music. Here are the 9 best film quotes about the Beatles.
