Sgt. Peppers Lonley Hearts Club Band.

As most of you know (or I hope you know) that one of the greatest and most innovative bands, The Beatles, came out With Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. Today is the 40th anniversary!

This album changed the way music was played, listened to, and seen throughout the world. If this album had not been created many of your favorite bands might not exist. Every track on the album is unique. Some songs are quite deep, while others light-hearted and fun. Take the song "A Day in the Life" (one of my many favorites). No one had ever done anything like it. John sings on the beginning and the end and talks about problems and issues of the current times. Meanwhile Paul adds some insightful lyrics in the middle to connect John's parts. The way it was sung was amazing, but the orchestra and other sound effects make the song that much more amazing. And the whole part where John sings about 4000 holes in the street is so simple yet so powerful. Sort of like how people make a big deal out of everything, until it's blown so out of proportion it just becomes pointless.

I read the news today oh, boy
Four thousand holes in blackburn, lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all

This album also kicked off "The Summer of Love (1967)". This was a time where freedom, peace, and love were not only reconized, but celebrated. This album opened up a whole new culture and vibe in world. The Beatles covered almost every genre there is; they were so experimental in everything they did. They did ballads, "heavy metal" (for the time), love songs, rockin' songs, and basically everything you can think of. They strived for the best song they could produce, something more bands should do.
