In 2069, The Beatles’ Songs Will Be Children’s Nursery Rhymes

Psychology professor Daniel J. Levitin on the music of the Beatles:

A hundred years from now, musicologists say, Beatles songs will be so well known that every child will learn them as nursery rhymes, and most people won’t know who wrote them. They will have become sufficiently entrenched in popular culture that it will seem as if they’ve always existed, like “Oh! Susanna,” “This Land Is Your Land” and “Frère Jacques.”
