Author Steve Turner's excellent "A Hard Day's Write: The Stories Behind Every Beatles Song" will be out in a new format, and under a new name, this fall.
Out Oct. 8, "The Complete Beatles Songs" will include Turner's behind-the-song details, along the lyrics of each piece.
Details from Amazon:
Who was "just seventeen" and made Paul's heart go "boom"? Who was "Lady
Madonna"? Was there really an Eleanor Rigby? What inspired "Happiness is
a Warm Gun"? Why was Paul the "walrus" and what inspired the lyrics to
Ringo's "Octopus's Garden"? In The Complete Beatles Songs, Steve Turner
shatters many well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four's
rich legacy by investigating the events immortalized in The Beatles'
music and now occupying a special niche in popular culture's collective
imagination. This beautifully packaged 2015 edition has been fully
revised and updated with a complete set of printed lyrics to accompany
each song, used with exclusive permission from the band's music
publishers, and includes new information on many songs.
