THE BEATLES DEEP CUT MIXTAPE
I can't remember when my personal admiration for Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and John Lennon began; however, I do know that after listening to them I haven't looked at music the same. I know that seems pretty extreme, but it's true! After listening to the Beatles it's impossible to listen to any music that came after and not recognize their influence. And becoming a fan of the Beatles also allows me to dive into the music that inspired each of them - respecting it so much more.
The Beatles were and still are, considered one of the greatest bands of all time. If the obvious examples of early 60s hysteria don't prove it, then the numbers sure will. As of 2014, the Fab Four have sold over two billion albums total. Yeah, billion with a "b". The band, which broke up in 1970, has also sold more than 2.8 million singles on iTunes. Point is, they are just as relevant now as they were fifty years ago. Music, unlike milk and MAC lipstick, doesn't expire or go out of fashion.. When it's done right.
Since the entire Beatles catalogue debuted on Spotify hits like "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", and "Hey Jude" have been leading the pack in streams and inspiring a whole new generation of creatives. Over the years, I've dove pretty deep into the band's discography (as well as each guy's solo work). While the hits are ah-may-zing, their deep cuts are the window into the band real artistic mastery. So sit back and enjoy a playlist full of tunes that are sure to please, please me and you..
(That was my sorry attempt at a pun, fam.)
