The Beatles : what had happened on Dec. 6, 1969 ? (6/12/2009)
Wow ! Forty years ago ! Something/Come Together hits UK #4.*** It is the first Beatles' disk not to make either UK #1 or #2 since Love Me Do in Australia in March 1962, and the first from an already issued album.***Something is also the first Beatles' single not penned by Lennon/McCartney, but by Harrison.***Frank Sinatra calls it at the time the greatest love song of the last 50 years.***For the first time a Beatles song is licensed for use on a non-Beatles album: ACROSS THE UNIVERSE features on World Wildlife Fund charity No One's Gonna Change The World.***The falsetto harmonies are performed by teenage Beatles' fans Lizzie Bravo and Gayleen Pease, selected from fans waiting for the group outside Abbey Road studios.*** BEATLES MONTHLY ceases publication after 77 issues as The Beatles rapidly begin to lose their collective identity and refuse to co-operate for promotion.
