Letter: Yeah and no, Jaci

Sir: Jaci Stephen ('Help] They love you, yeah, yeah, yeah, but I don't', 15 September) does not know what she's talking about. There may be so-called 'has-beens' watching the Beatles reunion, but there will be others watching it as well; I will, for sure.

I am a 13-year-old girl who has always enjoyed the Beatles' music. I remember singing to the livelier songs as a child, and now I like everything they did. Many of my friends like the Beatles, too, and will be watching the forthcoming documentary. As for Ms Stephen's views on the Beatles' lyrics, does she think that today's lyrics are much in comparison - 'No no, no no no no limits'?

She may have something to say about a generation older than herself, but what about a generation younger?

Yours sincerely,


London, NW3
