Music mirrors the times.
Check this one out.
What got the Beatles to the top before they came to the U.S.?
They were a very POWERFUL band.
The Trio was THE most powerful “folk” group.
“Hard Aint It Hard” opened thousands of shows.
I don’t think “She Loves You” was a hit because of the song.
I believe it was a hit because of the band.
I thought it was a stupid song.
For the times ….
Consider this song being played on the radio in the 1960s …
Would this song be played on AM radio if it was by someone besides the Beatles?
What if Paul gave Eleanor Rigby to Arthur Fiedler of the Boston Pops and said “Try this one!” And they recorded it … not the Beatles.
Would the D.J.s play it?
JFK was a powerful force.
The Beatles were a more powerful force.
Think about it.
What’s today’s force?
Ken, may the Schwartz be with you …..
