I am both outraged and perplexed.
Maybe other people's lives are different from mine, but... wouldn't you have had to be living in total isolation for the last 50 years to not know any of the music the Beatles recorded? There's so much of it. I don't even know all of it. It's everywhere. How could you not know it, especially if you claim to be a musician!!!
I guess it's possible some of these kids actually did know a song or two, but may not have ever known it was the Beatles. In that case I could excuse them. Otherwise, it's bordering on tragic for a kid to grow up with no Beatles. Tragic. And maybe, may I say, lazy.
Here's the thing: my mother, in her teens, lived way out in the country in a house with no electricity, and still managed to become a huge Beatles fan. That takes some effort and dedication.
To be born within the last 20 years, surrounded by TV and radio and commercials and not know? I just can't listen to your pitiful excuses.
So tell my wonderfully gnarled and refried rock star hero what Beatles song is your favourite.
Mine might be "Oh Darling." No wait, "Twist and Shout." No wait, "Octopus's Garden!" No wait...
