Ok basically im doing a essay about pop music and one part is about society. It says:

'Explain and give your personal opinion on the relationship between society and the development of pop music during each decade'

Then it goes on to say 'The Beatles mania, did society need them or did they influence society'

What do you think about both parts?

I don't know if this is what your looking for, but here goes-

The 1950's were a pretty conservative period, as it was after the war and really, society just wanted life to go back to how it was before WW2. Music in this time wasn't aimed at specific ages or generations, rather at a family as a whole. The music scene was generally slow, you know, rife with crooners and such. Teenagers at this time weren't encouraged to be different, or to go out and party, start bands, listen to any music that was 'different'.

The 1950's saw the rise to fame of Elvis, and rock n roll. Sure, Elvis was popular, but he was still going off the crooner kind of image, if you get what I'm trying to say. In the 1960's, society was set to enter with again conservative views. But then the Beatles came along. They were different to any other band, they connected with teenagers and young people on a level that would eventually become an obsession for many young people. They gave young people a way to differentiate themselves from older generations, and encouraged them to start bands, or wear their hair differently, or listen to rock n roll, etc.

I don't know if that's on topic, but I just spent 10 goddamn minutes on that masterpiece

QWEDIT: So yeah, society did need Beatlemania at that point. Otherwise, maybe those conservative ways would have continued through the generations and we would never have the vast majority of genres of music now.
