The Beatles <3
I grew up listening to The Beatles… in the 90s. Hahaha. I’d have to say that they must be one of the most well known bands of all time. Just after typing that sentence, I googled “What is the most well known band of all time?” and almost all the answers I could find said ‘The Beatles”! I then found more information saying that they are ‘the best-selling band in history’. So yes, they were an extremely influential band, making more hits in ten years than most artists make in 2 lifetimes. They received 7 Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, among many other awards.
But basically, I just like them!
“You know the reason The Beatles made it so big?…’I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche…or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can’t hide. Every single successful song of the past fifty years can be traced back to ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand-holding.” ― David Levithan, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist
