our cover star writes about her five favorite beatles songs!

by dianna agron


I SAW HER STANDING THERE (Please Please Me, 1963)

I picture myself in a fabulous 70's outfit, shaking my hair in the middle of a dance floor. Suddenly, a feeling creeps over me and I turn to look over my shoulder, only to lock eyes with a boy that's staring at me. It's our very first time for such an experience, nothing like this has ever happened before. We proceed to have the MOST epic dance-off which happens to make me feel like the sun AND the moon AND the stars. THAT is what this song makes me feel like.

ELENOR RIGBY (Revolver, 1966)

Love the strings, love the visuals, love it all. It's dramatic, and full of insight. Where DO all the LONELY people come from?

I WANT YOU (SHE'S SO HEAVY) (Abbey Road, 1969)

One day I will grab a partner and we will kiss and be with each other SO VERY PASSIONATELY alongside this song. This person HEAVY because of how overwhelming our feelings are. This song is more than sexy to me.

LET IT BE  (Let It Be, 1970)

This song makes me cry. The lyrics hit me to the core. It also reminds me of Kevin McHale, who auditioned for the show with this song. Don't know what I would do without him, our 'B' as we call him.

IMAGINE (Imagine, 1971)

I know this is a John song, but I think I can cheat a little? To me, this is our earth song. It is something I wish more people could embrace, understand and practice in our life. John Lennon, you are my HERO. I often feel like a dreamer, and I KNOW I'm not the only one.
