MUSA 3350 The Beatles: From "Yesterday" to "Tomorrow Never Knows" (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Everyone loves the Beatles. In this class, we explore why that is the case. We will chart the rapidly changing idiom of popular music in the 1960s and outline its interaction with various social, political and cultural movements, such as "Beatlemania" and psychedelia. The primary source material for this class is the established canon of Beatles songs, albums and films, which we will supplement with secondary articles, reviews and interviews. This course will challenge you to listen critically to, and think deeply about, one of the most influential bands in the twentieth century.
