The Beatles: Blues Track

The Beatles as musicians have tried almost any genre to incorporate to popular music, they have succeeding in integrating new elementals to popular music which originated from other genres. This became a standard of Pop Music thanks to the Beatles; Pop music became a combination of all genres making it confusing to what genre it really is.

The Beatles as musicians have tried almost any genre to incorporate to popular music, they have succeeding in integrating new elementals to popular music which originated from other genres. This became a standard of Pop Music thanks to the Beatles; Pop music became a combination of all genres making it confusing to what genre it really is.

The Beatles are also influenced by Blues artists this is heavily evident in some of the Beatle tracks. They become Blues artists themselves, as well as other genres; the Beatles are brilliant musicians who can play any genre with any instrument.

The Beatles as guitar players have Blues and Rock n’ Roll based instrumental riffs. This might be a little shot of Blues from the Beatles, but they have a track which is full of Blues called: “Yer Blues”

Money (That’s What I Want)

 Even though Money is a Beatle cover, it is also rhythm and blues based. Mostly John Lennon sings the Blues tracks. John Lennon liked to mix concepts of rock and roll to the Blues, resulting to this Beatle track.

Yer Blues

“Yer Blues” is a Beatles track sung by John Lennon. John Lennon uses all his vocal power to sing the Blues. The track has a long guitar solo, which is evidently Blues based. The solo is abruptly cut by the Beatles, then the vocals return to a fade out.

Don’t Let Me Down

 Billy Preston is one of the guest musicians the Beatles had. Billy Preston is also a blues player. Some of the Beatle tracks wherein Billy Preston played have a bit of blues in them like Don’t Let Me Down which is obviously heavily blues based.

For You Blue

 This is a George Harrison Beatle tracks with a tribute to Elmore James. There is a gimmick wherein George Harrison and John Lennon talked to each other while playing. John Lennon played the slide guitar in this track. This a genuine Blues track following the 12 Bar Blues. Paul McCartney also played the piano while recording. Albeit it is not present in the Beatles track.

The melancholic writing of the Beatles is due to the nature how the Blues are sung. Some of these Beatle songs are:

  • Baby’s in Black
  • Girl
  • I’m a Loser
  • Run for Your Life
  • You Never Give me Your Money
  • Can’t Buy Me Love
  • Cry Baby Cry
  • Don’t Bother Me
  • Eleanor Rigby

With all the number of the Beatles track, almost all of their tracks are Blues based.
