Fifty-five years ago today, 16 August 1960, in Harri/Beatles History, The Beatles whose lineup then consisted of John, Paul, George, Pete Best & Stuart Sutcliffe,travel to Hamburg from Liverpool to start their residency there. Manager, Allan Williams, along with his wife, Beryl chaffeured them in a green mini-van and their travel was cramped & uncomfortable.
“It was cramped. The van didn’t even have seats; we had to sit on our
amplifiers. We drove down to Harwich and got the boat to the Hook of
Holland. Driving through Holland, I remember we stopped at Arnhem where
all the people had parachuted out to their deaths (another little
Winston Churchill trick). There were thousands of white crosses in the
cemetery” - George, The Beatles Anthology

So a couple weeks ago, Kati and I were discussing our favorite moments from the TMH Tour and we were like ya know what - let’s compile the best HarryandLouis moments from the tour because so many people forget all the great stuff these two did. The moments may have been subtle and their interactions may have been more restricted, but that didn’t stop them from showing off just how in love and settled they are. We thought we could do a top 20 moments hahahahahaaa… yeahhhh so anyway here are my top 112 moments in chronological order. In preparation for the WWAT, enjoy :)
fyi: Some of them have more than one moment linked, don’t miss any :)
Zayn was hosting a BBQ and since you were his best friend, he invited you. But he forgot to tell you that Harry, your ex was going to be there. You already thought he was going, so at first you weren’t sure if you should go, but you decided to go anyways. You asked Zayn if you could bring your cousin, (Y/C/N) with you. He was one of your best friends in the family and the fact he was gay was even better.
You were sitting down with (Y/C/N), eating a hamburger. Harry sees you and he immediately goes back to enter the front of the house instead. You followed him and saw him crying as he went inside.
You hear him and Zayn yelling. “WHY WOULD YOU INVITE HER? DON’T YOU SEE I’M MISERABLE ENOUGH WITHOUT HER AND NOW YOU LET HER SHOW UP WITH SOMEONE NEW?!?!”, he yelled “It’s not what it lo-”, Zayn tried to explain “THEN WHAT IS IT?" You walk in and say, “He’s my cousin.” He jumps in surprise. “And he’s gay”, you explain. He come over and hugs you tight. "I miss you so much”, he says and sobs. “I missed you too”, you say back. “I Love you so much..” “You love me?”, you asked surprised. He nodded and gave you a kiss. Zayn being a bit awkward, he walked out and left you two alone.
