New Beatles Song
earvolution.com reports: The Beatles have been moving a lot of product with the release of Love just before the holiday season. If the alternative versions of old songs did so well, there's bound to be some significant hype for a brand new song from the fab four. Ok, not entirely brand new, but new nonetheless.

Paul McCartney reportedly is thinking with the idea of going back in the studio to add some harmonies to a John Lennon lead vocal track of a song they wrote "all those years ago" (sorry, couldn't help it). The tune "Now and Then" was apparently considered for release in the 1990s, but George Harrison apparently wasn't happy with the song.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

We love you! If you are meant to be with us, find us!! We have need, and our arms are ever-open...although I can say definitively we don't need jugglers...but we do need ???? (what?) what do we need!- Click Here for the Full Story
