    Well, there's always "Moon Over the Miami" from 1935, or a more recent gay interpretation:

    Thanks, that was lovely. Oddly, when I was a teenager in the 1960s, I didn't much care for the Beatles (though I did buy a ridiculous pair of "Beatle boots" for parties and let my hair grow long). I was performing classical piano music, and also Broadway show tunes for my own amusement (how gay!), and thought the Beatles merely a passing musical fad, associated with the psychedelic drug scene I never entered.

    Now I hear their music and it sounds much better, and certainly has nostalgic value for me, and I can relate most of their songs to what I was doing at that moment. Even if I didn't buy it or pay much attention to it back then, it was always the background music to my formative years. Today it's like a photo album I sometimes open, reviving memories & feelings I'd otherwise have forgotten. Only now do I realize how great they were, when the generation today hardly knows who they are.

    ^ Haha, it's funny, I watched a film recently about a guy who didn't like the Beatles in his childhood, he said mockingly,

    'The Beatles?' (and then very sarcastically) 'Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.'

    Personally, I'll always love them. I grew up with them and I think their stuff is beautiful and simple.

    Do you know this one? It's kinda similar to 'In My Life'

    I want to sing this to someone later in life.
    And the song "For No One" gets me teary eyed everytime I listen to it. I think we can all relate to it at least a little.
