The Beatles, like everyone else had their beginning and it was quite a ride before they finally reached success. They were not always crawling with fame, and they started off by playing at small clubs before they reached complete stardom. The ...
The Beatles were the biggest influential band in History. No other band has influenced the music culture the way that the beatles has. From being young musicians, they have achieved more than “five slots on the Billboard Singles charts” which sold more than a billion records. By 2000’s more than 35 countries, had a compilation of the Beatles Number One hit songs on their best-selling albums. Achieving many achievements, the Beatles continue to change the face of all music.
Hertsgard, Mark. A Day in the Life: The Music and Artistry of the Beatles. New York:
The Beatles are unmistakably the most well-known band in the world. The Beatle mania that started in Liverpool and spread throughout the world has changed the music world forever. The Beatles’ astounding careers have affected the music and culture of their era and continue to affect us today.
They also revolutionized the definition of an album. Prior to the Beatles, albums consisted of hit songs in no particular order. People only listened to the popular songs by artists that were on the radio. There was no concept of compiling songs to create a purpose. The Beatles’ albums were composed and arranged in a certain order to create a common theme, feel, and meaning. The idea of compiling the songs on an album to focus on a cause influenced every artist after them. Today, all artists release albums that have a purpose or a common theme. The Beatles revolutionized the common perception of what an album should be, and every album today models after the Beatles’ albums of the late 1960s. On top of this, the “fab four” changed the normal look of popular bands.
The Beatles started off as a small skiffle/rock and roll band playing in pubs and clubs throughout Europe. They, through their talent and abilities, pushed their way to the top of charts across the world, becoming one of the greatest music groups of all time. Their appearance into American culture has permanently shifted the musical thinking of citizens throughout the United States. Their influence on the American music industry, beginning in in early 1964, has continued for over 50 years and will continue to as long as producers and listeners maintain their comparing of bands of all genres to The Beatles. They pushed for peace in a time where peace was not on many minds, they fought for what they knew was right. On the condition that The Beatles continue to be compared to as they are being, they will always be remembered as one of the greatest bands ever to play in the United
The Beatles are known, respectively, as the fathers of modern pop music. After their first #1 hit “Please Please Me” was released in 1963 the Beatles were set in motion to become one of the most influential groups of musicians to ever rock our world. With over forty-nine records, 37 #1’s, and thirty- four number one albums (the highest amount of any band in history), there is no denying that they made a monumental ripple in the musical world. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr surprisingly all come from humble beginnings in a town that, until their superstardom, was barely noticed on the map. Liverpool, being kn...
I’m here today to discuss, compare, and contrast the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, two of the best rock and roll bands from the 1960s. During the British Invasion, both of these bands had a lasting impression worldwide inspiring many of the current artists today. Although both bands are similar, they have many differences.
The sixties and seventies were a time of war, peace and revolution, with “hippies” leading anti-war movements, and protests happening across the nation due to the administration of Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War. John Lennon originally a member of The Beatles, became a star in the anti-war subculture, and a hero to many, not only for his musicianship and the Beatle-mania that was spread across the country but for being a voice of the people. The Beatles were at the time, the voices of their generation and eventually became a product of their generation, with their songs highlighting the issues of the time. Even with the disbanding of The Beatles in 1969, Lennon continued to be a force in the culture, with his wife Yoko Ono and himself taking a prominent role in the media and movement against the war.
During a decade full of political and social strife, the Beatles expressed the broader hopes of their contemporaries for peace, love and rock 'n' roll. McCartney in particular would write more hits for the band than any other member. Songs like "Yesterday," "Hey Jude," "Let It Be," "Yellow Submarine" and "Hello, Goodbye" would provide the soundtrack for a generation. From 1962 to '70,
