Why the Beatles Never Go Out of Style
The Beatles that initially hooked me was their pop kickoff of the early '60s, as they appealed to all my loving, yeah, of '50s and early '60s rock and roll-like musics. They provided catchy, danceable tunes that justifiably got many teenage girls excited.
So I was hooked and I then diverted my interests to Magical Mystery Tour and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and then moved on to Rubber Soul and Revolver. I then grew to actually like Hey Jude as an album or, more correctly, an album-length compilation of B-sides and singles issued a month or two before the group announced its breakup in April 1970.
The point is, there's more, and I still have honestly yet to discover all of the band's works. However, again, I wouldn't have been interested in doing so had I not already discovered a different Beatles from the one in the dentist's office.
Of course, they weren't the only musicians doing the kind of music they did, and they were playing a kind of music that was already popular at the time, but a whole other point to be had is they remained technically excellent musicians throughout their run.
All of this isn't to share how much I adore The Beatles. There are other artists who are great to me and who offer something different. What remains food for thought is how the Beatles honed their craft and their market, and achieved those feats on a grander scale than any other musician I can think of, which is what continues valuing the Beatles to the world.
All in all, this can link to something about how excellence values success -- or vice versa, I'm not even sure -- posted somewhere on a workplace wall.
