Right now in 2017, well into the new century, there’s probably not a single music enthusiast who hasn’t heard of the Beatles, such is the popularity of this rock band. No other band can be, or more precisely, no other band will ever manage to be as good and as popular as the Beatles.
In 1960, four young music lovers decided to form a rock band. These guys; John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star made the biggest and the most remarkable alteration in the rock era. They formed the Beatles. Right since their advent, the entire rock music scenario underwent a complete transformation. These guys were the first to experiment with the regular rock and pop culture of Britain, thereby adding a new dimension to it.
The Beatles were the first to bring up psychedelic rock in the rock scene of the US. They were the first to spread the virus of psychedelic rock, thereby revolutionizing the American pop music scenario. With soulful lyrics and trance like music, these guys made the popular American music tad more popular and fun.
These guys were also the first ones to pioneer a music video. Before the Beatles, music videos were not common in America. But soon with the advent of this band, music videos became popular too. Some smart and stunning visuals coupled with the wonderful and soulfully soothing music turned out to be one of the biggest developments in the pop scene in America. With “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Can’t Buy Me Love”, these guys pioneered the first stand alone music videos of America. These videos were not too popular, but the creative use of aerial photography indeed stunned rock enthusiasts of the time.
The most remarkable thing about the Beatles is simply the fact that they made music and not ‘singles’. These guys always strived to come up with music that would overwhelm the crowd and amuse one and all. Even though their singles were popular hits, these guys tried to make every single song of theirs, absolutely worthwhile. They strived to create awesome and impeccably soulful music that everyone would love.
With these remarkable impacts on the music scene, the Beatles have made a prominent impression in our lives. So if you love rock, pop and psychedelic numbers, you’ve got to listen to the Beatles. The sentimental connect and soulful lyrics will truly amuse you.
