The Beatles For Kids – Morning, Afternoon & Night is the title is a curated digital collection featuring gems from the group’s hallowed catalog to appeal to their next generation of fans. The six-track selection gathers together music from far and wide across their incomparable songbook that’s sure to have young listeners everywhere singing along.
The first number in the collection is “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” the Paul McCartney composition and lead vocal from 1968’s The Beatles, aka the “White Album.” It tells the compelling story of Desmond and Molly Jones and, typically, became known around the world despite the fact that it wasn’t a US single for The Beatles until 1976, and in the UK not at all. Scottish band the Marmalade were the beneficiaries, soaring to No.1 on the British charts with their timely cover.
Next up is “Yellow Submarine,” one of Ringo Starr’s best-loved Beatles lead vocals (though not the only one in this presentation). Paul said soon after its completion: “It’s a fun song, a children’s song…it’s the idea of a yellow submarine where all the kids went to have fun.” Those singing along with the fadeout chorus include Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones and Marianne Faithfull.
