THE BEATLES’ influence – on their contemporaries, on our cultural consciousness, and on the music industry ever after is difficult to overstate. We all have a favorite song from the band that made us want to fall in love, tune in, and follow our dreams. Arranged chronologically by the date of the song’s release, these essays highlight both the BEATLES’ evolution as well as the span of generations their music affected. From Beatlemaniacs who grew up listening to the iconic albums on vinyl to new fans who download the songs on iTunes, each contributor explores a poignant intersection between BEATLES history and personal history.
With contributions from twenty-nine authors and musicians Roz Chast on She Loves You, Jane Smiley on I Want To Hold Your Hand, Rosanne Cash on No Reply, Gerald Early on I’m A Loser, Rick Moody on The End, Maria Popova on Yellow Submarine, David Duchovny on Dear Prudence, Chuck Klosterman on Helter Skelter, David Hadju on You Know My Name (Look Up the Number), and more – the breadth of the band’s impact is clear. From musings on young love and family strife to explorations of racial boundaries and identity, these essays pay tribute to a band that ran the gamut of human experience in a way no musical group has done before or since.
Timed for the fiftieth anniversary of the release of SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND, this anthology captures the full spectrum of reasons fans still love the Fab Four after all these years.
