Top Ten Reasons The Beatles Are Still Relevant
Transcript of Top Ten Reasons The Beatles Are Still Relevant
The album spent 15 weeks atop the US Charts and is Rolling Stone's #1 album of all-time.
In an era when musical acts generally were written songs for them, The Beatles stood out as artistic purists. The band penned all their own songs dating back to their inception.
In addition to this, The Beatles were also responsible for two of the first heavy metal songs, "Helter Skelter" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" Music History I Professor Michael Conner Section 03 http://www.flickr.com/photos/14461687@N05/3261687004/ The Music Video The Beatles schedule was so tightly booked, they decided to make short videos for singles instead of making countless public appearances. This practice quickly turned into the art of the Music Video. Today, hardly any major artist goes without making a music video. "Here Comes The Sun" music video released in 1969 http://www.cybermidi.com/news/index.php/practical-midi/announcements/an-amazing-list-of-beatle-firsts Stadium Concert Venues Prior to The Beatles, it was considered absurd to play in front of over 10,000 people, but in 1965 the band played in front of 55,600 people in Shea Stadium in New York City. The show grossed over $300,000. http://www.maccafan.net/Gallery/SheaStadium/Shea.htm http://www.maccafan.net/Gallery/SheaStadium/Shea13.jpg Chart Success No band or solo artist has ever come close to the amount of chart success that The Beatles enjoyed. During one week in 1964, The Beatles occupied all top 5 spots in the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. They had 12 of the top 100 during that same week.
As of 2013, they have sold over one billion records.

Some of the many techniques they made famous are: Artificial Double Tracking

On June 25th, 1967, The Beatles performed "All You Need Is Love" in front of over 350 million people in the world. http://www.thebeatles.com/#/article/The_Our_World_TV_Show The Beatles perform on Our World Lyrics Printed On Album Billboard's #1 album of all time, "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" was the first album of all-time to have the lyrics printed in the album booklet. In the industry today, it has become a standard to do so. http://i1.wp.com/listverse.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/beatlessgtpepperbackcover.jpg?resize=540%2C486 http://listverse.com/2012/10/11/10-beatles-innovations-that-changed-music/ Longevity Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney, one of the 2 remaining living Beatles, are still just as beloved today as they were in the 1960's. The two are still active in music, and can be seen performing at events to this day. Paul McCartney plays the half-time show at Super Bowl XXXIX http://www.biography.com/people/paul-mccartney-9390850 American FM Radio Before The Beatles, Americans listened to music on AM stations and talk radio on FM, because AM stations played singles in three minute slots. In 1968, The Beatles released "Hey Jude," which was over six minutes long. Instead of compromising, the AM stations simply cut the song at 3:00. But in San Francisco, Tom Donahue created an FM station that would play the song along with commercial-free blocks of music as a way to lure listeners away from AM stations. The idea compounded so much that within ten years, the whole balance of American radio had completely switched. http://listverse.com/2012/10/11/10-beatles-innovations-that-changed-music/ http://worldofpopculture.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/the_beatles_usa_flag1.jpg
