The Beatles: En toda mi vida, por siempre y para siempre.

Cómo no recordar con alegría y nostalgia mi época de niñez, cuando recién comenzaban a circular los reproductores de cassetes llamados "walkman". A la edad de 7 años, un descubrimiento hizo que mi vida cambiara radicalmente: por primera vez, escuché la música del cuarteto más famoso que vino a revolucionar la música del mundo entero... The Beatles.
Tal cual como si hubiera pasado ayer, veo entre mis manos ese pequeño cassete que tenía grabado música de los Beatles, un grupo que, hasta ese momento, era completamente desconocido para mí.
Si bien no sabía lo que significaban las palabras en inglés que cantaban John, Paul, Ringo y George, su música fue quien revolucionó mis sentidos. El primer tema que puse, hizo vibrar mi cuerpo de pies a cabeza: "She loves you".

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You think you've lost your love
When, I saw her yesterday-yi-yay
It's you she's thinking of
And she told me what to say-yi-yay

She says she loves you
and you know that can't be bad
Yes, she loves you
and you know you should be glad

She said you hurt her soul
She almost lost her mind
And now she says she knows
You're not the hurting kind

She says she loves you
and you know that can't be bad
Yes, she loves you
and you know you should be glad

Oo, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
And with a love like that
You know you should be glad

You know it's up to you
I think it's only fair
Pride can hurt you too
Apologize to her

Because she loves you
and you know that can't be bad
Yes, she loves you
and you know you should be glad

Oo, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
And with a love like that
You know you should be glad
And with a love like that you know you should be glad

Y luego, ligada a esa canción, apareció otra que me dejó con un halo bienestar (aunque ni sabía lo que decía en ese momento). "In my life", se convirtió en una de mis preferidas:

There are places I'll remember
all my life though some have changed
some forever not for better
some have gone and some remain
all these places had their moments
with lovers and friends I still can recall
some are dead and some are living
in my life I've loved them all.

But of all these friends and lovers
there is no one compares with you
and these memories lose their meaning
when I think of love as something new
though I know I'll never ever lose affection
for people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
in my life I love you more.

Though I know I'll never lose affection
or people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
in my life I love you more.

El día de hoy, con mis chavos de segundo, recordé ampliamente parte de mi niñez y al gran maestro, John Lennon. Y si en este momento John no hubiera muerto, sería un gran guía. Alcanzó lo que ningún otro músico ha logrado: Revolucionar el mundo de la música. Aún nos quedan Sir Paul Mc Cartney y Ringo Star... La leyenda de los Beatles, aún persistirá hasta el final de los tiempos.
