Classic And Catchy Beatles’ Song Still Holds Up Over 50 Years Later
I’m a sucker for old school music. I think it’s safe to say that the tunes from the last 60s and early 70s are some of the ones that have stuck around with people, even up until today.
Although we adapt and listen to what’s popular today, there’s no denying that you immediately jump up and sing along the moment you hear the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, and of course, The Beatles.
You can’t underestimate the powerhouse that was The Beatles.
The group was formed in Liverpool in 1960 and included the ever-so-famous singers a band was yet to see—John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
The Beatles were a force to reckon with in the music industry, and everyone wanted to know how to get in the band.
After their formation in 1960, the group went on to give hit after hit.
They are known for some of the best songs ever to come out, and they include (but are not limited to): “In My Life,” “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Yesterday,” and “Don’t Let Me Down.”
Their legacy includes some songs that won’t ever be forgotten by fans and even those who didn’t listen to their music as often.
But, if there’s one song that had everyone’s attention then it had to be “Hey Jude;” it came out in 1968 and went on to become one of the longest-running songs on the charts in the USA, in its time.
“Hey Jude” was written by Paul McCartney and evolved from a song he originally wrote for John Lennon’s son, Julian, to help comfort him through the time of his parents’ divorce.
Not many people know that the group didn’t make a promotional video for this song until a week after it was released in the USA.
They also used close to 300 locals, and some fans who happened to be in the Abbey Road Studios area, in the final video of the song.
I can’t help but listen to this song now and then and reminisce about the times The Beatles made chartbusters before their tragic split in 1970.
