Description

KINDLE ONLY

This book, When We Find Ourselves in Times of Trouble: The Beatles: All Their Songs with Encouraging Words for Challenging Times, was written by a lifelong Beatles fan, highlights all the songs of the Beatles, with stories of each song from their earliest demos to Abbey Road. The 260 stories include 10 “Bonus Tracks” of special interest. The book sprang from the author’s love of rock and roll and special love of the Beatles’ music, but specifically from his desire to help people cope with the uncertainty and anxiety of the coronavirus pandemic.

What became clear during almost a year of notes to a large group of family and friends is that the music of the Beatles could be just as important and potent a gift to a person during any challenging time in their life — a brief uplifting respite from stress and worry. For each song’s back story, special attention is devoted to the band’s creative process and its influence on and synergistic relationship with the culture at large.

The music of the Beatles can, indeed, provide those brief life-giving respites during a national trauma or any personally difficult time – our times of trouble. Explicit reminders and encouragement to persevere during those times of trouble accompany each song.

The book is available on Kindle at the moment.

    A genuine combination of scholarship, fandom and love of music. What started as a way to amuse Hatfield and his friends daily during the pandemic, turned into a deep and wonderful exploration of why and how the Fab Four created music that has lasted from generation to generation.
