The Beatles appearance on the Ed Sullivan show is one of the greatest moments on television, and one of the greatest moments in the history of popular music.
If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and watch the video below. It’s thrilling.
The first song they do is "All My Loving".
The second song they do for this monumental moment?
"Til There Was You" from The Music Man.
Oh how things have changed.
Wouldn’t it be cool if The Jonas Brothers covered "Mamma Who Bore Me" on The Tonight Show? Or if 50 Cent covered a song from Curtains on SNL?
That doesn’t happen anymore. In fact, what’s ironic is that pop music used to look to us for material.
And now, with the advent of the jukebox musical, we look to pop music for material.
Come on, pop singers, watch below and see how cool the Beatles look while singing Meredith Wilson. If they can do it at the beginning of their careers in this country, surely you can too.
