I think this is what elevates the Beatles above every other band going. They weren't just musicians they were poets! The way they had with words and the imagery used in the songs is just incredible. If schools are still using them in lessons 50 years later i think it's safe to say they still will be in another 50 years. I've passed my Beatles love onto my 2 nieces and nephew (they're 9, 7 and 4) and they probably will to their kids. I asked my niece today what are faviourite band is and she said the Beatles! She also likes one of the One Direction boys (forget who) but she doesn;t like their music. I asked her who she prefers, the 1d boy or Ringo and she replied "Mr Starr of course!". I have taught them well!

I think the superiority in songwriting that they had over other artists at the time is largely the cause of Beatlemania, to use the term. Although what they were writing in 1963 isn't comparable to what they were writing a few years later, they always pushed the boundaries – which set them apart from other groups that maybe could sing almost as well and make the girls go wild just as much. People underestimate their writing, and I have no idea why. Hopefully, if schools are using their lyrics, they will be at the front of people's conscience for some time yet.
