University launches master’s degree in The Beatles

Course can be studied both full and part time, includes a dissertation on the Fab Four


 

From Liverpool Hope University:

Liverpool Hope University has launched a brand new MA in The Beatles, Popular Music and Society, the first of its kind in the world. The new course, which can be studied both full and part time, covers four modules with specific issues relating to The Beatles and Popular Music, consisting of four 12-week taught modules, plus a dissertation.

Mike Brocken, Senior Lecturer in Popular Music at Hope, said ‘There have been over 8,000 books about The Beatles but there has never been serious academic study and that is what we are going to address.

‘Forty years on from their break-up, now is the right time and LIverpool is the right place to study The Beatles. This MA is expected to attract a great deal of attention, not just locally but nationally and we have already had enquiries from abroad, particularly the United States.

”The Beatles, Popular Music and Society’ marks a seminal advance in popular music studies. For the first time in the UK and possibly the world, a postgraduate taught course is offered to research into The Beatles, the city from which they emerged, the contexts of the 1960s, technology, sound and songwriting and the industries that have set up in their wake to capitalise on tourism in the city of Liverpool.’

    One upon a time there was a way to get back home
    Sweet little darling do not cry or I will punch you in the eye, ee
    Zip up your fly
    Or I will punch you in your eye
    Golden showers falling from the sky
    Golden showers falling from the sky
    Right into your mouth
    Gargle gargle gargle gar
    South into your mouth
    And I will sing a lullabye

I seen a movie on the web of a orangutan pissin’ in his own mouth cause I guess he was thirsty and every body laughed at him so he picked up a handfull of stuff and through it at them and that was the funniest thing I ever seen except when a little baby monkey sitting on a log smelled his butt and fell off it to the ground which was really funny,:-) !
