It aired on 9 February, the exact date of — and at the same time, and on the same network as — the original broadcast of the Beatles' first US television appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show50 years earlier. The special included performances of Beatles songs by current artists as well as by LP and Starr, archival footage, and interviews with the two surviving ex-Beatles carried out by David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater.
Directed by Ron Howardit chronicled the Beatles' career during their touring years from tofrom their performances in Liverpool's the Cavern Club in to their final concert in San Francisco in A week later, Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was reissued with new stereo mixes and unreleased material for the album's 50th anniversary. The Beatles broke their own record for the album with the longest gap between topping the charts as Abbey Road hit the top spot 50 years after its original release. Additionally, a book also titled The Beatles: Get Back will be released in Octoberahead of the documentary. In their initial incarnation as cheerful, wisecracking moptops, LP Fab Four revolutionised the Album), style, and attitude of popular music and opened rock and roll's doors to a tidal wave of British rock acts.
Their initial impact would have been enough to establish the Beatles as one of their era's most influential cultural forces, but they didn't stop there. The band's increasingly sophisticated experimentation encompassed a variety of genres, including folk-rockcountrypsychedeliaand baroque popwithout sacrificing the effortless mass appeal of their early work. In The Beatles as MusiciansWalter Everett describes Lennon and McCartney's contrasting motivations and approaches to composition: "McCartney may be said to have constantly developed — as a means to entertain — a focused musical talent with an ear for counterpoint and other aspects of craft in the demonstration of a universally agreed-upon common language that he did much to enrich.
Conversely, Lennon's mature music is best appreciated as the daring product of a largely unconscious, searching but undisciplined artistic sensibility. Ian MacDonald describes McCartney as "a natural melodist — a creator of tunes capable of existing apart from their harmony". His melody lines are characterised as primarily "vertical", employing wide, consonant intervals which express his "extrovert energy and optimism".
Conversely, Lennon's "sedentary, ironic personality" is reflected in a "horizontal" approach featuring minimal, dissonant intervals and repetitive melodies which rely on their harmonic accompaniment for interest: "Basically a realist, he instinctively kept his melodies close to the rhythms and cadences of speech, colouring his lyrics with bluesy tone and harmony rather than creating tunes that made striking shapes of their own.
If there hadn't been Elvis, there would not have been the Beatles. The Beatles continued to absorb influences long after their initial success, often finding new musical and lyrical avenues by listening to their contemporaries, including Bob Dylanthe WhoFrank Zappathe Lovin' Spoonfulthe Byrds and the Beach Boyswhose album Pet Sounds amazed and inspired McCartney. Originating as a skiffle group, the Beatles quickly embraced s rock and roll and helped pioneer the Merseybeat genre,  and their repertoire ultimately expanded to include a broad variety of pop music.
Although the song "Yesterday" was not the first pop record to employ orchestral strings, it marked the group's first recorded use of classical music elements. Gould observes: "The more traditional sound of strings allowed for a fresh appreciation of their talent as composers by listeners who were otherwise allergic to the din of drums and electric guitars.
The band's stylistic range expanded in another direction with their B-side "Rain", described by Martin Strong as "the first overtly psychedelic Beatles record". Innovation was the most striking feature of their creative evolution, according to music historian and pianist Michael Campbell: "'A Day in the Life' encapsulates the art and achievement of the Beatles as well as any single track can.
It highlights key features of their music: the sound imagination, the persistence of tuneful melody, and the close coordination between words and music. It represents a new category of song — more sophisticated than pop There literally had never before been a song — classical or vernacular — that had blended so many disparate elements so imaginatively.
Author Dominic Pedler describes the way they crossed musical styles: "Far from moving sequentially from one genre to another as is sometimes conveniently suggested the group maintained in parallel their mastery of the traditional, catchy chart hit while simultaneously forging rock and dabbling with a wide range of peripheral influences from country to vaudeville. One of these threads was their take on folk music, which would form such essential groundwork for their later collisions with Indian music and philosophy.
George Martin 's close involvement in his role as producer made him one of the leading candidates for the informal title of the " fifth Beatle ". Collaborating with Lennon and McCartney required Martin to adapt to their different approaches to songwriting and recording. MacDonald comments, "while [he] worked more naturally with the conventionally articulate McCartney, the challenge of catering to Lennon's intuitive approach generally spurred him to his more original arrangements, of which ' Being for the Benefit of Mr.
Compared with Paul's songs, all of which seemed to keep in some sort of touch with reality, John's had a psychedelic, almost mystical quality John's imagery is one of the best things about his work — 'tangerine trees', 'marmalade skies', 'cellophane flowers' On the other hand, I would be stupid to pretend that drugs didn't figure quite heavily in the Beatles' lives at that time Not only was I not into it myself, I couldn't see the need for it; and there's no doubt that, if I Album) had been on dope, Pepper would never have been the album it was.
Perhaps it was the combination of dope and no dope that worked, who knows? Harrison echoed Martin's description of his stabilising role: "I think we just grew through those years together, him as the straight man and us as the loonies; but he was always there for us to interpret our madness — we used to be slightly avant-garde on certain days of the week, and he would be there as the anchor person, to communicate that through the engineers and on to the tape.
Making innovative use of technology while expanding the possibilities of recorded music, the Beatles urged experimentation by Martin and his recording engineers. Seeking ways to put chance occurrences to creative use, accidental guitar feedback, a resonating glass bottle, a tape loaded the wrong way round so that it played backwards — any of these might be incorporated into their music.
Along with innovative studio techniques such as sound effectsunconventional microphone placements, tape loops, double tracking and vari-speed recording, the Beatles augmented their songs with instruments that were unconventional in rock music at the time.
These included string and brass ensembles as well as Indian instruments such as the sitar in "Norwegian Wood" and the swarmandal in "Strawberry Fields Forever". Former Rolling Stone associate editor Robert Greenfield compared the Beatles to Picassoas "artists who broke through the constraints of their time period to come up with something that was unique and original The Beatles' arrival in the US is credited with initiating the album era ;  the music historian Joel Whitburn says that LP sales soon "exploded and eventually outpaced the sales and releases of singles" in the music industry.
Their musical innovations and commercial success inspired musicians worldwide. According to Gould, the Beatles changed the way people listened to popular music and experienced its role in their lives. From what began as the Beatlemania fad, the group's popularity grew into what was seen as an embodiment of sociocultural movements of the decade.
As icons of the s countercultureGould continues, they became a catalyst for bohemianism and activism in various social and political arenas, fuelling movements such as women's liberationgay liberation and environmentalism. Other commentators such as Mikal Gilmore and Todd Leopold have traced the inception of their socio-cultural impact earlier, interpreting even the Beatlemania period, particularly on their first visit to the US, as a key moment in the development of generational awareness.
The Beatles were like aliens dropped into the United States of Elvis Presley had shown us how rebellion could be fashioned into eye-opening style; the Beatles were showing us how style could have the impact of cultural revelation — or at least how a pop vision might be forged into an unimpeachable consensus. Established inGlobal Beatles Day is an annual holiday on 25 June each year that honours and celebrates the ideals of the Beatles.
