If you were to ask several people which classic Beatles songs helped redefine the music industry, you would be amazed by the vast difference of their answers. This is due in part to the fact that the creativity of The Beatles managed to both influence and inspire their audience. When studying the expert writing style of John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison and Paul McCartney, I can never stop myself from becoming overwhelmed by just how intricate and deep their words are. Here a few classic Beatles songs (in no particular order) that greatly impacted me in regards to my admiration of music.
1. Eleanor Rigby
This is one of the classic Beatles songs that ignited my obsession. The dark themes of this piece coupled with its overall composition are nothing short of exquisite. The musical arrangement is actually one of the elements that I truly adore. As a viola player, I have always wondered if any other string quartet could imitate the brilliance of the instruments in the original. Despite the slightly morbid lyrics, I blame my love of the name Eleanor on this song.
