Lady Gaga listened to The Beatles constantly for six months.
The 'Poker Face' singer is a huge fan of the legendary band and says their classic album 'Abbey Road' helped inspire her debut LP 'The Fame'.
She revealed: "I don't know if anyone knows this about me but when I wrote 'The Fame' I listened to The Beatles' 'Abbey Road' obsessively. I had it on repeat for probably about six months. It's so incredibly brilliant - an innate sense of joy - they really had that down. It's full of joy with a hat of tips to the melancholy."
The 'Just Dance' hitmaker also claims the band - which consisted of Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and the late John Lennon and George Harrison - played a key part in the sexual revolution for women in the 60s.
She told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Without The Beatles I don't think women would be taking their cardigans off in hallways.
"They were responsible for the birth of the sexual revolution for women. Now we have the Jonas Brothers representing the return of the superfan."
In the early 60s The Beatles caused worldwide hysteria, dubbed at the time 'Beatlemania', and were greeted by thousands of screaming female fans everywhere they went.
