  Course Description
This course explores the music, careers, and cultural phenomenon of the Beatles from their early days in Liverpool to the beginning of their solo careers. First we will examine the early musical and cultural influences that contributed to the band?s identity in England. In doing so, we will delve into the popular music of the 1950s and the 1960s, including rockabilly, girl groups, Motown, rhythm and blues, the British Invasion, folk music, psychedelia, and rock. The class will proceed by concentrating upon the meaning of the Beatles' music and self-fashioning within the political, social, and historical context of the counter culture of the 1960s.
