This day was so poignantly marked that it began a whole new chapter for the youth of the 1960s. Inspired by the sounds of rock 'n' roll, young musicians were getting back to its origins and so came a new wave of folk and pure R&B revivals-styles suited to a decade of political protest. Previously album structure had been an afterthought and the result was very formulaic, resulting in many albums leading with the second and/or third single, followed by a ballad, and side two would lead with the first single, then there would be a series of cover songs. Dylan's album broke this formula by turning the album format into an art form in itself. In Britain, The Beatles created their own musical style with a blend of clear melodies and complex rhythms, informed by R&B. Their 1963 single "From Me to You" began an unbroken run of UK number one hits that dominated the decade, lasting until 1967.
Revolution was John Lennon's response to the popular calls for uprising in the US and Europe. It was a revision of a version already recorded for the White Album, and became the b-side of the Hey Jude single. Although taped after Revolution 1, this faster, louder version was the first to be released. On 9 July 1968, following a remake of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, The Beatles began the remake of Revolution, rehearsing the song and trying out the new arrangement. The first take of Revolution – well, George and Paul were resentful and said it wasn't fast enough. Now, if you go into the details of what a hit record is and isn't, maybe. But The Beatles could have afforded to put out the slow, understandable version of Revolution as a single, whether it was a gold record or a wooden record.
Revolution 9" is a sound collage that appeared on the Beatles' 1968 eponymous release (popularly known as the "White Album"). The composition was influenced by the avant-garde style of Ono as well as the musique concrète works of composers such as Edgard Varèse and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
The Beatles released "Revolution" as a single the day that the Democratic National Convention opened, which devolved into the violent riots Megan watches on TV. Paul's "Blackbird" reflected the ongoing civil rights struggle; the Season 6 episode "The Flood" sees the assassination of Martin Luther King J. After the acrimony of the "Let It Be" sessions, the Beatles wanted to go out on a positive note, and George's cheerful "Here Comes the Sun" could represent a new beginning for Sterling Cooper with the opening of the West Coast branch, complete with Pete Campbell and Ted Chaough soaking up rays on an .

Dreaming the Beatles, out in paperback on June 19th, follows the ballad of John, Paul, George and Ringo, from their Sixties peaks to their afterlife as a cultural obsession. In this section, Sheffield explores one of the Beatles’ unheard treasures – the May 1968 Esher demos they recorded at George Harrison’s pad, preparing for the White Album, not suspecting their friendship was about to turn upside down. The Beatles spent five agonizing months making the White Album, often splitting up to work in separate studios. The fighting got so ugly Ringo quit for a week. In many ways, the Esher demos are the last recorded moment of the Beatles as a band. For the Get Back/Let It Be sessions, they tried to re-create this basement-tapes spirit, but instead documented their sad demise.
