Transcript of Beatles Influence on Music Industry

The Beatles Influence on Music Industry The British Invasion was a musical movement during the 60's that spread the popularity of British rock and roll groups through America The Beatles arrived to America on February 7, 1964 where there were huge crowds of people waiting to arrive them. The movement brought Beatles boots, mop-top wigs, Mary Quant's miniskirts and other Carnaby Street fashions to Main Street, U.S.A. Two days after their arrival the Beatles performed at the Ed Sullivan Show where more than 70 million Americans watched! After the Beatles other British bands came to the U.S. and most American bands died off, except the Beach Boys. Outside of the Plaza Hotel, where the Beatles were staying during their visit, ehere were constatnly huge crowds of crazy fans trying to do whatever they could in order to catch a glimpse of them. John Lennon was the first singer to use Automatic Double Tracking. This was a process in which the voice of the singer was overdubbed on top of the original track. It improved the sound of his voice. This method is still used today by pop stars. Lennon also altered the standard method of recording a drum kit. Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band was an album in which the Beatles used many sounds that had not been used before to create that psychedelic feel to it. They also are recognized for creating the music video, which they called promotional videos. Their first batch was released on November 23, 1965 and directed by Michael Linsay-Hogg. They included We Can Work it Out, Day Tripper, Help!, Ticket to Ride, and I Feel Fine. After recording How Do You Do It, a song written by Mitch Murray, the group insisted on writing their own songs. So Paul and John wrote Love me do. The production company saw that the boys had talent and therefore they wrote From Me To You, which became their first number one in Britain. McCartney and Lennon were the two who wrote most of the band's songs, and nearly all of thier songs were big hits. They are often considered to be the greatest songwriters of all time. George Harrison wrote several songs as well, but he wasn't a major contributor of song writing ideas until Revolver. Ringo Starr was an important part of the overall Beatles sound and live performance energy, but was not a significant songwriter. This song portrays how the Beatles felt during the Beatlemania. They are crying out for help from the sudden fame they had to deal with. The group was dealing with a lot of pressure from their fans and the people around them, they needed help in trying to deal with it all. Andree Loog Oldhum, the manager of The Rolling Stones, pressured them to write their own music in order to follow the Beatles's example. Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me?

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before. Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh. Help! BIBLIOGRAPHY
