The Beatles have always been there, chasing me throughout my life. I had a tin yellow submarine on wheels when I was little. I had to sing “When I’m 64” in primary school. How I hated that song, and the weird Beatles, with their dirge-like songs – “Eleanor Rigby”, “Penny Lane”, “Nowhere Man” – forever on the radio.

You didn’t need to buy Beatles records to know the songs by heart and become depressed by their odour of a dreary post-war Britain.
