The Beatles were at the right place at the right time, but GorillaMan you’re underestimating just how much the Beatles made it the right place and time.
It’s hard for anyone who wasn’t around in the early 60s to realize how greatly they created modern music out of nothingness. And how quickly they grew to greatness.
The early songs were fun and catchy and universal and minor. But then they transformed. The Beatles of 1963 were nothing like the Beatles of 1964 who were nothing like the Beatles of 1965 who were nothing like the Beatles of 1966 who were nothing like the Beatles of 1967 who were nothing like the Beatles of 1968. They brought shape and coherence to all of 60s rock music. They did not do it alone, obviously, but they made everybody else better by their example. And the need and desire to compete with them.
The Beatles were a whole, made better by one another and by the association with George Martin, and none of this survived their ending their friendships. Doesn’t matter. At their best, they were brilliance personified.
There is all too much music I don’t like or don’t appreciate and I’m sorry that it has to be that way. In the same vein I’m sorry for you if you feel that way about the Beatles. Nothing I say will make a difference, I know. But the Beatles are important and influential because of their music, and not the other way around.
