One of the features of “THE BEATLES”, which allowed me to rank them as “pop-singers”, is the relative simplicity of their music and lyrics, although this is more likely a consequence of the needs of young people than the lack of ability of musicians. The youth were then tired of the complexities of life, they wanted something light and easy to understand. There is no denying the contribution to the development
youth music “THE BEATLES” made a huge. Continue reading
