Hear all 7 of The Beatles Christmas messages, from 1963 to 1969. The first five years the messages were straight-forward, but by 1966, the messages became more intricate, like a goon-show performance with skits and bits of songs. In 1968-69, all four Beatles recorded their own messages, and they were cut together EMI's Abbey Road Studio. Cool piece: Listen 2 minutes in to the 1965 message and hear John start to sing The Four Tops "It's the Same Old Song", Happy Christmas listeners!
