* "Dear Prudence" was written for a real girl (Mia Farrow's sister), because John was saddened by how reserved and shy she was. That's right. One of the biggest musicians of all time took the time to write a beautiful ballad just to get a girl he had just met to cheer up. If the freaking Beatles write a song just for you to get you to cheer up and you don't feel better, there's no hope for you.

She locked herself in her hut and refused to come out or speak to anyone until John was saddened by how reserved and shy she was. That's right.

** At concerts, Ringo used to announce that he was about to sing by saying, "[[SelfDeprecation Here he is, all nervous and out-of-tune...Ringo]]!" (TruthInTelevision--stage fright was, and continues to be, a huge problem for him.) So when John and Paul wrote a song around the concept of themselves as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, ''they made Ringo the lead singer''--and wrote him some lyrics in which he apologizes for possibly singing off-key. Then he does a call-and-response thing with the others about how much they all need each other. ''Aww.''

* "Free as a Bird". Ringo, George and Paul got together to record incidental music for the Anthology Project, but realized that they wanted to record some new songs instead. Only problem? No John. At this point they could have either written something without him or abandoned the idea of a new song altogether. Instead, Paul asked Yoko if she could give them any demo tapes of John that they could finish. It should be noted that the remaining Beatles had to fill in a gap where John hadn't finished the lyrics and [[TearJerker made all of us weep]] by going with the following:

* ''Good Ol' Freda'' is a 2013 documentary where Freda Kelly looks back on her past as secretary to the Beatles and founder of their official fan club. A Liverpool girl, she started at age 17 as a big fan when they were barely known outside the Cavern Club and stayed through the end. She was a hard-working professional who both guarded their privacy (and still does) and cared for the (fellow) fans. Plenty of 'Awww' moments (love her relationship with Ringo's parents). She's still a secretary, still in Liverpool, and seems the very nicest person.

* GeorgeHarrison's cover of "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea", from the last album he recorded before he died, is, while slightly lacking in lyrical depth (though it's by no means shallow), one of the most cheery, heartwarming songs this troper has ever heard.
* When the Beatles were on tour, they still took time to celebrate Brian Epstein's birthday. Actually, considering how often people hear about cold, corrupt managers, the close relationship between Epstein and the Beatles in general fit this trope. It made his possible suicide even more tragic (it was rules as accidental and none of the Beatles ever disputed it.

** "Arguably"? Okay, let me make the argument. At concerts, Ringo used to announce that he was about to sing by saying, "[[SelfDeprecation Here he is, all nervous and out-of-tune...Ringo]]!"

* While listening to "All You Need is Love" from the "Love" album, this troper was given specific instructions to not listen until she was about to fall asleep, was in a completely dark room, and to have headphones in. The song is segued wonderfully with the beginning instrumentals of "Good Night" and just as the music is fading out one then gets to Listen to the boys goof around in the studio for a few seconds and then hear John say "good night to you's all, and God bless ya!" Warm fuzzy feelings abound.

* "She Loves You" is pretty adorable. It's from the point of view of a guy telling another guy that, no, it's not over between you and the girl you love, even though you hurt her badly--I just talked to her and she still loves you, ya lucky dog! Now go apologize to her and make everything right! Never fails to make me smile.

* In the early 70s, at a time when the band had recently broken up and Paul and John were still supposed to be at each other's throats, a fan encountered John strolling around Greenwich Village with an "I Love Paul" button from the days of Beatlemania. Wondering if he was making some kind of ironic statement, the fan asked him why he was wearing it--to which John replied, without missing a beat and without a trace of sarcasm, "[[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther Because I love Paul]]."
