A Brief Research On The Beatles

2103 words - 9 pages

John Lennon once said,” We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first, rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity,” whether this claim is true or not, the world will never know. The Beatles were, however, one of the most influential groups of all time and paved the way for many others to follow in their path.
Since I was a little kid, I remember my parents always listening to music. Music has always a part of my life growing up. My parents listen to all kinds of different genres of music from Pink Floyd, Jimmy Buffett, Bruce to the Beatles. Both my mom and dad have told me that one of their favorite bands of all time is the Beatles an they remember listening to it as kids and still enjoy it today. They play their music all the time around the house, especially my mom who always has the radio on. The first real memory I have of when I first got interested in the Beatles was around the age 6 or 7. I was in the car going to beach with my sister, Maddie, and my dad over the summer break. My dad plugged in his sleek black iPod into the radio and we started listening to a Classic Rock. The song, Born to Run, had just finished playing and then the next song started to play, it was Yellow Submarine by the Beatles. I became enraptured by their voices and their harmony. My sister and I instantly started to hum along with the playful chorus of the song. We enjoyed the song even though we thought it was really silly. We liked it so much that we asked my dad to play it over and over again. Then I asked him what the name of the band singing Yellow Submarine was. He told us the band was famous, and they had been around forever even when he was a kid. He then said they called themselves The Beatles. My sister and I thought that was a hysterically funny name to call a band. I was really into all kinds of creatures at the time and I especially loved bugs so I thought it was really cool that they call themselves the Beetles. My dad laughed so hard he almost drove off the road. He then explained the name to me and told me a little about the Beatles. That is when I first was introduced to the band and when I first fell in love with their music. We loved their music so much that when I was in second grade, my sister and I entered the Talent Show at Castle Heights, our elementary school. The song we chose to sing was Octopus Garden. It was really funny we sang the song while my dad hid behind a screen on stage. He had a huge stuffed octopus that he made dance along while we sang the song. Although, it was a lot of fun at the time and has provided my entire family with a wonderful memory I must say that after having sung and performed the song so many times with my sister it is no longer one of my favorites songs. In general I have always loved music, whether playing it or listening to it, so I have been really excited about my I-Search subject. I thought I knew a lot about the Beatles like their song titles and such but wanted to learn more in depth...
