22 Day Beatles Challenge Day 9: Your Favorite Beatles Era - 1964-1965
This was the time when the Beatles were taking the world by storm. They seemed to be unstoppable, and that’s exactly what they were. They were so young, they still had so much to learn, and yet, everything they did, the world took as remarkable. This was the time when they had no “troubles,” no signs of a break-up, still filled with musical ideas that would go down in music history. They would last forever.
In 1964, they made their first trip to the United States, and appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, which just fueled Beatlemania. They released a couple successful albums, A Hard Day’s Night, and Beatles for Sale, and created some of their best songs like I Want to Hold Your Hand. Their first movie came out too, A Hard Day’s Night, which is personally one of my favorite movies.
In 1965, they performed in front of more that fifty-five thousand adoring fans at Shea Stadium in New York. They released their second movie, Help! after the release of their Help! album, which rocked.
When I look at the events that happened during these two years, it just brings me sheer happiness, and admiration toward the Beatles. Every time I watch video clips from this time, I feel like I’m discovering the Beatles all over again. I love it. I love them.
