FORT WAYNE, Indiana (Indiana's NewsCenter)--ITS BEEN FORTY YEARS SINCE THE BEATLES RECORDED A SONG BUT THEY ARE THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING. SUCCEEDING GENERATIONS HAVE DISCOVERED WHY THE FAB FOUR WERE FAB, WHY THE LAST CD OF SOME OLD BEATLE SONGS, A CD CALLED '1' RELEASED FOUR YEARS AGO, SOLD 30 MILLION COPIES. IT'S BECAUSE QUALITY NEVER GOES OUT OF FASHION.
Nicholson: I think a lot of people are still reaching for that depth of lyrics. I think if we pulled up lyrics right now the top ten, we would see a lack of depth when compared to Lennon and McCartney.
THIS WEEK THE FAB FOUR ARE BACK BEARING FRESH GIFTS, THEIR COMPLETE CATALOG OF SONGS DIGITALLY REMASTERED AND RELEASED TODAY ON CD…EACH ALBUM A TREASURE, EACH A MORE COMPLEX AND INVENTIVE JOURNEY THAN THE ONE THAT CAME BEFORE IT. BUT THERE'S SOMETHING FOR THE KIDS, TOO..THE BEATLES ROCK BAND, A PLAY ALONG VIDEO GAME THAT LIKE PREVIOUS INCARNATIONS OF ROCK BAND OR GUITAR HERO, ALLOW YOU TO PLAY AND SING ALONG. WHAT THIS GAME WILL DO IS INTRODUCE THE BEATLES TO A NEW GENERATION THROUGH THE TECHNOLOGY THEY'RE FAMILIAR WITH. EXPERTS SAY THE GAME IS FUN BUT THE DEPTH OF THE BEATLES MUSIC AND LYRICS WILL TOUCH THIS YOUNGER GENERATION, AND CHANGE THEIR LIVES TOO.
Nicholson: Pop music has been fairly static for a while now so if this can connect with enough people to create a revolution, then it could be very meaningful in connecting age groups, generations, and get a dialog going on all sorts of things.
A TALL ORDER FOR SOME GUITAR PLAYING LONGHAIRS..BUT THEY'VE BEEN UP TO IT IN THE PAST..NO REASON TO THINK THEY WON'T DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN. ERIC OLSON REPPORTING FOR INDIANAS NEWSCENTER.
