Their immense popularity was christened “Beatlemania,” which embodies the band’s ideals and impact not only in music, but also in socio-cultural revolutions.


So, how did the Beatles become a phenomenon?


While the band’s talent and charm are already widely accepted, some critics credit the Beatle’s success to their extraordinary luck of coming precisely at the right moment in the music scene.

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr were just born a few years apart during an era when England still had its National Service program. During this period, the fab four found each other, devoting several years playing and practicing music together in front of adoring fans.


At the time when the band finally hit their musical ventures, the wave of post-World War II babies were already in their teens. Hence, they created a wide fan base, including in the West, during a time of economic prosperity. For their listeners, their joyous and optimistic music seemed to fit the era.

In addition to band’s great talent and fortuitous timing, critics also regard their success to the Beatles’ gift of harmony and their unique qualities as individuals, which symbolizes unity where all opposites sing together as one.
