The Beatles: No Reply

"I nearly died, I nearly died
'Cos you walked hand in hand
With another man
In my place."
That shoots the audience's heart!
"No Reply" is a love song, and one of the all famous Beatles songs in various repertoire of R&B, rock and roll, mellow music, and classic variations, among others. Critics hold a number of Beatles songs, including the album "St. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)" as a masterpiece. From Time Magazine, the group gets in the list of the 20th century: 100 Most Influential People (Wikipedia).
I. Four Members
Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr like the four ancient elements become a legend in the music industry.
Beatles (existent) was formed in Liverpool, England in 1962. Way back (1960), it was joined in by two bandmates (Sutcliffe and Best). Around the 69 /70 the group became divided, and members released solo albums. John Lennon got shot in 1980 and George Harrison died of cancer in 2001. George Martin (their producer) was said to be their informal music teacher.
The release of "Love Me Do" (1962) charted in the UK.
II. Songs Like Light Poems
The Beatles songs give vivid pictures (using imagery) like "Strawberry Fields," "I am the Walrus," and "Yellow Submarine." Different feelings about life and things are evoked in "Hard Day's Night," Help," "Let It Be," "Yesterday," among others.
Repetition, rhyme and rhythm are used in most songs. "Rain," has internal rhymes and real rhymes. Also, an abundance in metaphors (Helter-skelter) and reverses (Hello Goodbye). The melody with the texts come simple; but attracting, convincing and very appealing to the senses.
John Lennon and Paul McCartney write most of their songs. Once, one member gets quoted that the group is more popular than Jesus. John asks for an apology. In anyway, the messages of the songs create meaningful ideas that sound so naturally whiz!
