Whether you are a fan of the Beatles or not, one can not argue with Rolling Stone Magazine, fifty years of fans and musicians, or Maxwell’s silver hammer. The Beateles are one of the most influential bands of the 21st century.
The reasons why The Beatles were able to skyrocket successfully across the music universe are not countable on a single hand. They emerged during the 1960s in a repairing Europe, after the JFK assassination, and when there was a growing urge from a young generation to listen to the new, edgy, scandalous sound of this little thing called rock-n’-roll music.
Ultimately, all the little intricacies that could cause us to be successful may not be in our control or understanding. It makes me realize that there are a lot of outside influences existing here, there, and everywhere that lead us to where we are now. We may twist and shout, grow impatient and frustrated, or do anything but act naturally waiting for everything to line up so that success can be achieved.
But in the case of The Beatles, they did not give up on their dreams despite how fast the world was changing. They simply continued to do what they loved. As you carry that weight of unknowing and waiting for all the intricacies to line up, keep in mind the words from the band’s 1968 hit “Hey Jude”:
“And don’t you know that it’s just you, hey Jude you’ll do, The movement you need is on your shoulder.”
