The world of popular music would not have existed if it weren’t for the Beatles. Though we may have only had them for a handful of years, the songs that the Fab Four gave to the world have become some of the most essential rock music of the 20th century. This kind of band only seems to come once in a lifetime, but when you have success that big, there are always people who want to copy it.
Ever since the Beatles’ breakup in the late ‘60s, bands have been coming to the forefront brandishing guitars and trying to write in the same vein as John Lennon and Paul McCartney. While some might write in this style for just a one-off song or side project, some of these bands have made an entire career out of trying to repeat the same formula of the Greatest Band That Ever Lived.
That doesn’t really mean that these songs should be hated for their similarities. In fact, most of these songs don’t seem like carbon copies but are more of an homage to the music that made many of us love music to begin with. There will never be another band like the Fab Four, but it’s still fun to see people trying to put a spin on that classic sound.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
