Music band with four players.
On the occasion of the Beatles
entering the 21st century
of music distribution via streaming --
this singular shift brought with it a desire
(and ability) to hear every song,
on every album from 1962 to 1970.
After listening to their oeuvre,
two things were undeniable:
They played their instruments
with a fierce determined abandon
in service to their songs.
And so many of the Beatles songs
are about love.
So performance and love.
These two aspects have lionized the Beatles.
Mastering a craft.
Pouring every ounce of the soul into it.
Adding that ambiguous chameleon of a word,
love, to the story.
It's a good mix that perhaps is responsible
for the Beatles legacy...
