In 1964, The Beatles arrived in the United States launching a revolution that changed the course of popular music. Their influence also dramatically affected fashion, art, advertising, religion, politics and almost every aspect of popular culture. A half-century later, The Beatles continue to touch our lives and despite the evolution of music, their songs continue to provide a a soundtrack for our memories and a mirror of our dreams.
John, Paul, George, Ringo, their songs and their musical instruments have become icons of popular rock music. In the early days of televisions being in every home, their performances on The Ed Sullivan Show riveted a whole generation to that glowing tube.
Our infatuation with The Beatles continues and today every generation knows and listens to their music, which is still played regularly on the radio.
