The Beatles are my most favorite bands because their music actually has meaning. There are some artists that don’t make their songs with thought and feeling. Those artists usually just make music for the money. I wanted to tell people that there are bands out there that work hard on their music and don’t care about the money. The Beatles are one of those bands that do it for the music.
