History is often in the hands of great leaders or powerful tyrants. Yet, sometimes people are able to make an impact through the simple art of song-writing. That’s how it was for those four men from Liverpool.
As Elvis introduced the world to a new concept of unparalleled celebrity, no longer were musicians simply the songs they recorded. Personality and image became new facets of entertainment that helped sell records as well. Combining musical talent and some clever marketing, The Beatles managed to sell albums like metaphorical hotcakes. In the process, they became famous the world over.
Their sales figures shattered records. Their television performances attracted millions of viewers. A number of their lyrics even become popular parts of the cultural lexicon.
