DEADLINE FOR NEW SUBMISSIONS: Friday, August 4

Background: On Sunday, February 9th, 1964, at 8 p.m., the course of music history changed forever after The Beatles stepped on The Ed Sullivan Show stage for their first appearance on American television. A record setting 73 million people tuned in that evening making it one of the seminal moments in television history.

A week later, the February 24th issue of Newsweek magazine’s cover featured a picture of The Beatles with the title, “Bugs About Beatles.” Inside, the review of The Beatles debut on The Ed Sullivan Show began, “Visually, they are a nightmare: tight, dandified, Edwardian/Beatnik suits and great pudding bowls of hair. Musically, they are a near-disaster: guitars and drums slamming out a merciless beat that does away with secondary rhythms, harmony, and melody. Their lyrics (punctuated by nutty shouts of “yeah, yeah, yeah!”) are a catastrophe, a preposterous farrago of Valentine-card romantic sentiments.” The article ended with the following prediction, “…the odds are they will fade away, as most adults confidently predict.” 

So much for adult odds makers. More than fifty years later, people still remember exactly where they were the night The Beatles stepped onto Ed Sullivan’s stage. http://www.edsullivan.com/artists/the-beatles
