In the May/June 2013 Horn Book Magazine, reviewer Robin Smith asked Kathleen Krull and Paul Brewer, authors of The Beatles Were Fab (and They Were Funny), about the Beatles’ music in their own lives. Read Robin’s review here.
Robin L. Smith: What was the first Beatles song you memorized?
Kathleen Krull and Paul Brewer: The first, for both of us, apparently, was “She Loves You,” so we decided we had to be different and branch out. Paul picked “I Saw Her Standing There,” and Kathy landed on “In My Life.” Memorization was a breeze at first, more tricky as Beatles songs got more complex, but we probably have them all down except maybe for “I Am the Walrus.”
