ESSAY QUESTIONS: (50 points, 25 points each) Preparing all of the questions below will ensure that you review all the course material. Two of these questions will appear on the test, and you will be asked to write essays for both of them. Each essay should be at least 3-4 pages in a blue book. 1. When the Beatles stopped touring in 1966, their music was no longer constrained by the requirements of live performance. How did their recording practices change after 1966? 2. The Beatles made four live-action films (A Hard Day’s Night (1964), Help! (1965), Magical Mystery Tour (1967), and Let It Be in 1970) as well as numerous promotional videos for individual songs. They also “appeared” as animated characters in the film Yellow Submarine (1968). How were the Beatles, as a group and as individuals, presented to their audience in these films? How were their presentations similar or different from one film or video to another? How might the audience’s perceptions of the Beatles’ characters and interactions influence the listening experience, how their music was heard? Would audience perceptions be similar or different between the 1960s and today? (You may also consider Beatles performances on television that we have seen, but focus primarily on the films.)
