How The Beatles' Music Stays Relevant Through The Decades

The music of the Beatles is something that has stood the test of time. 

For better or worse, the music that Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr gave to us continues to be of importance to us all and The Beatles: Get Back is only a stepping stone in understanding why their songs continue to remain relevant. 

My dad used to sing me “Rocky Raccoon” or “The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill” when I was getting a bath and I used to love listening to them over and over again. 

For a while, I took notice of those calling a love of The Beatles a “basic” thing and so I loved them in secret, listening to “Across the Universe” on repeat and hiding the fact that I actually still really loved them because it wasn’t seen as a “cool” thing. 

But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve put those childish fears aside and I’ve re-embraced the band for what they were: Revolutionary. 

And now that we have children not even knowing who The Beatles are, maybe all those years of mocking those who liked them by calling us “basic” backfired.
