In accordance with instruction from Mar T, here is my entry for The Beatles competition, relisted before the specified time of 8 pm. :-)

A song about the time that I have spent in the city of Liverpool with my fiancée (who was born in this great city).  It's about The Beatles experience which is now a shadow of the real events that shaped the history of rock 'n' roll. It's also about a very sad and personal story. 

I was thinking about the quirky sound effects that are typical of the music score in the film 'Yellow Submarine' , the cartoon Sergeant Pepper band and the production techniques of George Martin.  Little things like a tambourine go a long way to hint at a circus atmosphere in the style of 'Being For a the Benefit If Mr Kite'. Must it always rain in Liverpool  is introduced with an unusual cello and played out with French horns and piano as it slips back into the fog, never  to be heard again, leaving behind 'The Blue Meanies' in the fictional location of 'Pepper land'.

Must It alway rain in Liverpool

In Mathew Street, it's almost 9.
The girls appear, singin' 'I feel fine.'
It was long ago.

To Albert dock by city light
I hear the words of 'Mr Kite;'
'On trampoline'.

I hear the screams, they're now an echo from the past.
The tourists storm The Cavern and they dance.
'Here comes the sun' to light the contours of her face.
I see her beautiful green eyes and then the pain.
Must it always rain in Liverpool.

In Mathew Street, a ghost appears.
Let rock 'n' roll caress your ears.
It was long ago.

The stage is set, guitars and suits
with pencil ties and Chelsea boots,
the band performs.

'Here comes the sun' to light the contours of her face.
I see her beautiful green eyes and then the pain.
Must it always rain in Liverpool?
Upon the hill, the lonely fool.
Must it always rain in a Liverpool L1?

Very nice tune. I like the chords and the arrangement. And your restrained vocals. Great instrumentation, too. Very well done! ::headphone::

Can you please post the lyrics?
