I want to start by saying I've never really listened to The Beatles. Of course it's impossible to completely ignore their music, but I only heard maybe 15 songs by the band up until today, so this game was not only an extension of my favorite video game franchise, but also an entirely new experience for me in many ways.
First off, I am now officially going to college with a major in music. I've played the piano since I was a wee lad, played in orchestras with flute and piano, and always had a passion for it, but never really "took off" with it. Harmonix changed that for me and I can't be thankful enough with how awesome they are. Since The Beatles is arguably the most influential band of all time and I love to broaden my musical horizons, I was stoked for this game. After studying music theory for hours today, I finally was able to go down and pick the game up and start playing. Well, I didn't put the game down until I completed every song in one sitting, then proceeded to finish all of the challenges, then watch the videos, then read all of the photo captions. ....Amazing. I'm ashamed for not paying enough attention to The Beatles earlier, but in way, it was the perfect time for me to listen to them. I'm overall more aware of music now after studying it so much lately, and can appreciate it that much more, especially hearing the majority of these songs for the first time.
I just wanted to thank Harmonix for another gem, and after watching those epic credits, I can tell a lot of blood, sweat, and maybe even some bloody sweat went into making this game. It's a great game and a beautiful work on its own, and if I didn't have more classes tomorrow, I'd still be playing it instead of writing this before I pass out. Everything from the photo facts to the attention to detail to the overall beauty and amazing feel I get from simply playing the game is a very rare find, and I'm still amazed Harmonix got the permission to even touch these songs!
So long story short, I have FINALLY been touched by The Beatles music, and once again, I thank Harmonix for not only entertaining me, but inspiring me and influencing my path in life.
