“I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.”
The Beatles were the first global entity that wrote their own songs, played their own instruments, and pushed the boundaries of cultural normality. The collection of albums and songs recorded and produced throughout their decade-long career showcases not only their unmistakable talent, but it also changed the face of music as we once knew it.
Lennon and McCartney, the chief songwriters of the band, are known as the single greatest songwriting duo of all time. Not to say that contributions from George and Ringo aren’t iconic in their own right, but John and Paul managed to propel The Beatles from an underground punk-rock dive band to international sensations who induced an incurable form of ‘Beatlemania’ in the hearts and minds of men, women, and children across the globe.
As the Beatle generation ages, the youth culture is faced with a heavy task: keep the legacy of the Fab Four alive and well for the next generation. The solution? Instagram captions. Next time, skip the filters and give the people what they *really* want!
