How would the world have looked without the Fab Four? Pop, protest and the sexual revolution might have been very different. When you hear Beatles, you immediately think insects. And cigarettes? Never heard of them. This is the alternate universe imagined in the new film Yesterday , out in cinemas today. But, music aside, the fictional world of Yesterday is not so different from our own. Certainly, pop music would have sounded different. Music journalist Peter Doggett suggests that music would not have played such a big role in teenage rebellions in later decades. In , The Beatles travelled to India and took up yoga and meditation.
You might say that every crisis gets the multi-celebrity car-crash pop anthem it deserves, but truly no crisis — certainly not one as vast and unsettling as the current one — deserves this. By the end, it has been pummeled and stabbed, disaggregated, stripped for parts and left for trash collection by the side of the highway. It is proof that even if no one meets up in person, horribleness can spread. The performance is two minutes long, but watching from front to back requires about 20, with breaks for snarfing, ear-canal cleansing and bursts of who-the-hell-is-this? It begins after a brief, platitudinous monologue from Gadot, who may be on lockdown, but whose mind has been freed, bro. Or like a joyfully sadistic nurse about to administer a gruesome shot.

Well that is what happened to YouTube sensation Jo Milne who was born completely deaf. Jo became an 'internet star' after a video of her hearing for the first time after having implants fitted was viewed more than 9,, times see below. Jo visited the Beatles Story last weekend and spoke to us about her amazing story and about why the song 'Imagine' means so much to her. I remember putting my head up to a large speaker and hearing the music, and I could even recognise some songs by the vibrations. I also could tell when people were listening to music, so I understood what it meant to people. I understood that there were different types of music because everyone would move in a different way. There were a huge amount of suggestions from my friends and family, a lot of Beatles songs were suggested actually. But it was as simple as 'Imagine' was just the last suggestion that was sent to me, I still had the conversation with a school friend open on my phone so I clicked on the link and listened to it.
