I know young people who are hip to The Beatles.
I loved seeing all the little kids singing along in the DVD.
How cool was that? I just loved it.[:)]
[:D]Oh absolutely!!! There seems to be a gap between the kids who know and love the Beatles, who for some reason are quite young, and many college kids now who have no idea where the music they revere got its roots, and are clueless about the Beatles, much less the huge mass of music they set off. And it's also true that black kids I work with know nothing about Motown. Sad...Macca revered all kinds of music, and utilized it in his own work. Throughout the history of music, even classical music, composers stole from each other, and even themselves! Knowing lots about different kinds of music opens people up to whole new vistas in life, as well as gives them comfort, inspiration, and hope. Macca was one of the all-time best at expressing our feelings for us, and I, too, wouldn't want to hear anyone else sing his classics. With a voice like that, why mess with perfection? [:X]
