Beatlemania hits again on 9/9/09! All of the Beatles albums have been re-released digitally re-mastered, and if you’re video game junkie or just curious about the Beatles, you can now pick up The Beatles: Rock Band at your local retailer. My husband bought the video game yesterday, and we’ve been having a blast playing it.
I wasn’t even born when the Beatles broke up, but I grew up listening to their music. Many of their songs are classics now, but I’m wondering if they’d be as successful if they were a new band today. Would their early mop-head hairstyles fly with today’s teenagers? Would they need to learn to dance around the stage more and flirt with the camera? Would their looks be more critical in becoming a success than their actual music?
If you think about the evolution of the Beatles, they tended to change with the times—in their music as well as in their individual styles. I wonder...if the Beatles were young right now, would their talent and individual personalities make them superstars in this day and age?
Has the public become more superficial in terms of how they choose their music? Would the Beatles need to change anything to be as successful today?
What do you think?
