The Beatles – The Artist
The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the group were integral to pop music’s evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s. They often incorporated classical elements, older pop forms and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways, and later experimented with several musical styles ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock. As the members continued to draw influences from a variety of cultural sources, their musical and lyrical sophistication grew, and they were seen as an embodiment of the era’s sociocultural movements. The Beatles are the best-selling band in history, with estimated sales of over 800 million records worldwide. They disbanded in 1970 and embarked on successful solo projects.
A Hard Day’s Night – The Song
“A Hard Days Night” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles. Credited to Lennon–McCartney, it was written by John Lennon, with some collaboration from Paul McCartney. It was released on the film soundtrack of the same name in 1964. It was also released in the UK as a single, with “Things We Said Today” as its B-side. The song’s title originated from something said by Ringo Starr, the Beatles’ drummer. Starr described it this way in an interview with disc jockey Dave Hull in 1964: “We went to do a job, and we’d worked all day and we happened to work all night. I came up still thinking it was day I suppose, and I said, ‘It’s been a hard day …’ and I looked around and saw it was dark so I said, ‘… night!’ So we came to ‘A Hard Day’s Night.’” Starr’s statement was the inspiration for the title of the film, which in turn inspired the composition of the song.
Chord or Stage Plan – The Shape
This image is for hardened Beatles fans. It’s a shape that represents a couple of things. The opening chord of the song, A Hards Day’s Night. The columns represent the strings on a guitar and the dots represent a guitarist’s finger placed on the strings to play the G7 suspended chord. From a different perspective, this image could also denote the stage floor plan with Paul and George on the left, John on the right and Ringo at the back of the stage.
