The Beatles are an iconic band I’m aware of because I live and breath. However, when it comes to their music, I can’t say that I’ve ever dedicated time to listen to any of their songs. This is partly because I didn’t grow up during the peak of their success, and my parents didn’t play their music at home.
I of course could have started playing their music on my own accord. Only, there was always another newer and ‘cooler’ artist to get excited about. Or, I’d simply moved on from an interest in new music with great production and lyrics to my far greater and more lasting obsession, film.
Thanks to this well edited ‘non-trailer,’ for the very first time I’m interested in The Beatles and their music. A change I can only really attribute to the way this sneak peak non-trailer has opened a door to the bands’ personalities; plus the brotherhood and fun they seem to have had together while making music. I’ve always been a sucker for beautiful bromances/ friendships. I imagine that once I watch this film in August 2021, the answer to the question ‘can you name a single Beatles song?’ will no longer result in me pausing for a long time only to then say ‘Imagine.’ Firstly because Imagine is a John Lennon song, not a Beatles song. And secondly, I’d have finally listened to at least one Beatles song that I like – probably a lot.
