beatle day of Sir James Paul McCartney
The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960 and one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. From 1962 the group consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals). Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, the group later worked in many genres ranging from folk rock to psychedelic pop, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. The nature of their enormous popularity, which first emerged as the “Beatlemania” fad, transformed as their songwriting grew in sophistication. The group came to be perceived as the embodiment of progressive ideals, seeing their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.
They have produced 300 songs. See all the songs here.

Thomas Sangster, a 19 years old actor, British.
Born 16 May 1990. Best known for his role in Love Actually and Nanny McPhee.
Sangster’s first acting job was in a BBC television film, Station Jim. He subsequently appeared in a few more television films, including the lead roles in Bobbie’s Girl, The Miracle of the Cards (based on the story of Craig Shergold) and Stig of the Dump. He won the “Golden Nymph” award at the 43rd Annual Monte Carlo Television Festival for his role in the miniseries Entrusted. Love Actually, in which he played Liam Neeson’s stepson, was Sangster’s first major theatrical film. He was nominated for a “Golden Satellite Award” and a “Young Artist Award” for his role in the film.
Sangster next appeared in a television adaptation of the novel Feather Boy and played a younger version of James Franco’s role in the film version of Tristan and Isolde, which was filmed in the Czech Republic. Among other things, Sangster takes part in a (child’s) swordfight in the film. Sangster next starred in the commercially successful film Nanny McPhee, as the eldest of seven children.
In 2007 he appeared in a two-part story (Human Nature and The Family of Blood) in the third series of Doctor Who as schoolboy Timothy ‘Tim’ Latimer, and guest-starred in the Doctor Who audio dramas The Mind’s Eye and The Bride of Peladon. His voice lowered during filming of the Doctor Who episodes. That same year he voiced the character of Ferb Fletcher in the Disney Channel animated series Phineas and Ferb. He also starred alongside Love Actually and Nanny McPhee co-star Colin Firth in the film adaptation of Valerio Massimo Manfredi’s historical novel The Last Legion, released in 2007. As of December 2007, he was also working on the filming of a television series of the story of Pinocchio, filmed in Italy.
In March 2008 it was announced that Sangster will star in Steven Spielberg’s CGI motion capture film Tintin as the title character of Hergé’s comic books. Sangster left the project after scheduling difficulties when filming was delayed in October 2008 and the role was given to Jamie Bell. At the end of March 2008, he begins working with Oscar-winning director Jane Campion on her film Bright Star, a love story with Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish portraying John Keats and his lover Fanny Brawne.
In March 2009 Sangster joined Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas and Anne-Marie Duff in Nowhere Boy, a film directed by award-winning artist Sam Taylor-Wood, about the teenage years of John Lennon and the two women who shaped his early life: his mother Julia (Duff) and his aunt Mimi (Scott Thomas).
In 2010 comes out new film with Thomas - AWOL. He plays Casey.
In January 2010, as bassist, Thomas joined Winnet - a band, where his mother, Tasha Sangster, takes the Vocals.
