  • 1.  
  • 2. This presentation will cover some of the influences that The Beatles made throughout time, as well as information about songs and the bands popularity.
  • 3. They slither as they pass, they slip away across the universe
  • 4.
    • The influence of The Beatles music changed recording and sound forever. Being the first band to use a recording studio to create complex sounds that acted as a competitive tool with other musicians, making their music very diverse, ranging from psychedelic tunes, to soothing melodies. Some big names that were influenced by The Beatles were Elton John, Pink Floyd, Elvis Costello, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Neil Diamond, Rush, The Police, and many more. The rock band
    Oasis was also very influenced by The Beatles. Liam Gallagher, a lead singer in the band, named his first son Lennon. Their various various styles of music influenced the evolution of sound. ‘Helter Skelter’ acted as a foundation for heavier rock music, while songs such as ‘Ticket to Ride’ and ‘Day Tripper’ are simple songs that acted as a simple frame for future pop music.

    • The Beatles impact on culture differs from appearance to lifestyle. They inspired a fashion of mop-top haircuts and moustaches, which is famously seen on the cover of their album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band . The Beatles clothing styles changed with the times. Another fashion that was sported by them were black collarless suits, which inspired a modern look. Later on, they began wearing bright, colorful clothing to represent a psychedelic era. After this, the band wore more simple clothing; torn jeans and t-shirts.
    • Another influence The Beatles had on society was their use of drugs. Bob Dylan first introduced the group to marijuana in 1964, and since then the band had experimented with drugs such as acid, heroin, and preludin. The free use of these drugs inspired fans to follow their footsteps, and soon petitions were being made to legalize marijuana. People began rebelling against drug use laws, and soon The Beatles got blamed for this controversy.

    • One particular individual who was greatly influenced by The Beatles was Charles Manson. He was a Beatles fan who enjoyed their music. Manson was a racial serial killer, who believed that The Beatles spoke to him thorough their lyrics, especially those found on
    Jai guru de va om ‘ The White Album’. He made connections between The Beatles and the Bible, and began ‘Helter Skelter’, an attempted race war. On some of the victims, he would carve lyrics onto the bodies with their own blood.

    • The song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds used the acronyms of LSD to suggest that The Beatles were using that drug while they wrote the song. The vivid colors and images that are sung about in the song can mirror the images seen in an LSD trip. This is one of those songs that has influenced people with drug experimentation.
    The imagery portrayed in the song can lead to curious minds wanting to see those images for themselves

Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my open mind posessing and coressing me. Jai geru de ve om Nothings gonna change my world Nothings gonna change my world. Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes That call me on and on across the universe Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe Jai geru de va om Nothings gonna change my world, Nothings gonna change my world.
