# #----------------------------------PLEASE NOTE---------------------------------# #------------------------------------------------------------------------------# Date: Fri, 29 Nov 1996 12:55:21 EST-10 From: MENDE JOVESKI <JOVESKI@bunyip.ph.rmit.edu.au> Subject: TAB: Birthday - The Beatles This was from the Beatles' double album that showed that after Sgt Peppers and Magical Mystery Tour and the meditation in India, that they could still play rock 'n' roll. A lot of the songs on the white album were written in India and recorded with only about 2 of the Beatles present. This song is an example of that with a catchy riff to go with it. Birthday - The Beatles (The Beatles - although we call it the 'White Album' - 1968) Arr. Mende Joveski (lyrics taken from Book: "The Beatles illustrated lyrics") Here it comes....
