about

My co-producer and pal, Fernando Perdomo told me he had a great song title, “She Hates the Beatles” and challenged me to write a song with that title. Given that I LOVE The Beatles and they’re my favorite group, I took him up on that challenge and wrote a song about a guy who is in a good relationship, his girlfriend treats him very well, but her dislike of the Fab Four is a major deal breaker and he has to break off the relationship. I mean, who is their right mind could hate the Beatles, right?

lyrics

“She Hates The Beatles”

she was so good to me, treated me so lovingly
but there’s a secret incompatibility

she don’t know John from Paul, but baby what’s the worst of all
she thinks Wings is a TV show and Lennon is a Russian mole

and when she turns on the radio
she makes me listen to Barry Manilow

she hates the Beatles, she hates the Beatles, her record collection’s thin
and i ain’t cavin’ in, she hates The Beatles


she doesn’t like the way they talk, said the Beatles couldn’t really rock and “Sgt Pepper” is a dated crock and they don’t know how to sing

and then she turns on the radio and makes me listen to Barry Manilow

she hates the Beatles, she hates the Beatles
her record collection’s thin and i ain’t cavin’ in, she hates The Beatles

i cannot live this lie, use Ringo as an alibi
she’s got no taste and i’m afraid i’ve gotta say goodbye

and then she turns on the radio
and makes me listen to Barry Manilow

she hates the Beatles, she hates the Beatles
her record collection’s thin and i ain’t cavin’ in, she hates The Beatles
