The British Invasion: The Music That Took Over Our Lives from 1964 to 1967
December 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm
When it comes to borders, no walls could ever keep out music. In the early sixties, rock ‘n roll was sharing the charts with the burgeoning folk revival, Motown out of Detroit and surfer music from California when unstoppable Beatlemania swept across the Atlantic, triggering the British Invasion. Begun along the banks of the Mersey River, the new sound percolated in Liverpool clubs as skiffle bands that incorporated elements of Chuck Berry-style rock n’ roll and other influences, such as doo-wop and R&B — essentially, a fusion of American sounds unique to British artists. In 1964, The Beatles led the way for The Dave Clark Five, Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Animals, Rolling Stones, Zombies, Herman’s Hermits, Freddie & the Dreamers and a host of others. In May 1965, nine songs on the U.S. Top Ten were British.
