Alright Beatlefans around the globe, here are the top 6 posts according to blogger from 2014Just read this as if you are listening to the radio countdown for the year.

6.  Beatles on Sullivan Remembered

Here is an article that I wrote myself specifically for this blog.   It is a very special article and I am so happy that so many of you have enjoyed it.   I have gotten messages from places like Japan and Vietnam asking if it would be alright to transcribe the article into those languages so that the Beatle fans in those countries could enjoy it as well.    It is quite an honor for me and I am happy to share what American fans felt with the rest of the fans around the world.   I hope to be able to write more articles like this one because I think the oral history of the fans is an important part of the Beatles story.

5.  The Run away

The story of the 13 year old girl who left her home in Boston and ran away to England and ended up meeting the Beatles is a story that was quite popular.   "There is no way she is 13!" Is what I heard the most after I shared this story.   But rest assured that she truly was just 13 years old when she had her Beatles adventure.   I obviously am quite fond of this story myself, because I realize that every tie I go on a radio program to talk about this blog, this is one of the stories I bring up.

4.  Performing in Beantown

So this is just a photo only post of photos of when the Beatles were performing a concert in Boston in during the 1964 North American tour.   I am honestly not sure why it is coming in at #4, because it does not stand out in any way to me.   But I can say that the entire 1964 North American tour was super fun to work on this past year and I am already working on the 1965 tour posts.

3.  Paul McCartney and the girl with the Black Beret

First Appeared August 12, 2014

One of the most touching stories on this blog.  It hit a lot of readers and moved them to tears.   Paul and Ringo have done some extremely nice things for kids with cancer over the years and this story is a wonderful example of Paul's kindness and compassion.    You need some tissues if you are going to read this story again...it is a tearjerker for sure!

2.  The Beatles are our Bosses!

It has been almost a year since I first posted this story.  Time to re-read it!   I remember working my tail off using Google translate and Babelfish translate to get the German to English figured out.   But it was worth it!   I love reading about the girls that worked for Apple. 

And the number 1 post of 2014 is  (Ringo---that is the cue for that drum roll!)

1.  Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on the Road

I found this story in an issue of Good Day Sunshine fan magazine.   It tells the story of an actor who was also a Beatles fan and how he got a part in the Broadway production of Sgt. Pepper and met John and Paul as a result.   It is an interesting story and one that I enjoyed reading.  

What a great year it has been....hope 2015 is just as good!
