I was 11 or 12 at the time, but even then I thought the whole '50s look was strange. First Beatles album I ever bought. By the way, the one thing I remember about the songs is that if you listen to "Back in the USSR" at the very end you can faintly hear the opening notes of "Dear Prudence.

Purple Jim , May 2, This album came just after all the original singles got re-released in those green "Beatles" sleeves not good. So for white fundamentalists and conservatives it took on this different kind of religious dimension. There was also a lot of talk about witchcraft and demon possession—I even remember hearing some of this as a kid in the s and 80s in the Church of the Nazarene.
Some of that rhetoric persisted for decades after the 50s. In part it had to do with their look, and also with their being from Britain—being foreign. But I think the hard thing for us to wrap our heads around now is that, at the time, the hair length of the Beatles—which they had borrowed from these sort of Beatnik existentialists in Germany—was viewed as such a radical departure from how young men were supposed to look and to behave.
There was a lot of talk about how tight their clothes were and how their hair was effeminate.

So even on the other side of the aisle, there were people who believed the Beatles to be important agents of change. Timothy Leary, too, made a number of pretty hyperbolic statements about the Beatles ushering in a new religious sensibility—a new way of being for young people.
Tell Me What You See. I'm Looking Through You. The Beatles convincingly transform this somewhat laid-back Chuck Berry anthem into a frantic, thunderous rendition leaving the listener hardly a chance to take a breath. Views Read Edit View history.
