On Inspiration of Art

Here are some clips of Beatles Videos which capture the essense of their magic and charm. The question to ponder, from my point of view, is what makes them so fantastic? Was it the sound of their voices, the humor of their witty reparte, the nonchalance of their moods. Was it the story of love that they told?

Within and Without You
Kansas City
Yesterday 2nd version
Hey Jude
Lady Madonna
Midsummer Nights Dream
Please Mr. Postman
One after 909
Tomorrow Never Knows

For those who see the link between this art and ours there is a hint here pointing in the direction of the potential for story telling, and Gamesmastering of a kind which the world has not yet known.

Am I saying we can duplicate what the Beatles did? No, of course not. What I am saying is that in the future we may find that our new art form could inspire things as great, or greater, perhaps. Only time will tell.

In the meantime, it doesn't hurt to revisit the Beatles. They were truly, magically, wonderful.
