Fifty Years Ago Today, A Revolution Started…

Fifty years ago today, in just 2 minutes and 22 seconds the world was changed forever.

On the 5th of October 1962 a new band known as The Beatles released their debut single, “Love Me Do” and from that point forward a revolution began. Pop music had been very much manufactured and produced out of “tin pan alley”-style writing houses and with “Love Me Do” a Northern, working-class voice woke the nation’s music-loving generation to a whole new world.

The first publicly aired Lennon and McCartney original has went on (with the rest of their output) to influence and define music as we know it today across all genres and tastes.

The rest is, as they say, history and maybe one day I’ll write more about The Beatles, but for now it is more than enough for me to say that it was fifty years ago today the revolution started….
