It’s always amazing to see that no matter how much time has passed; music never truly dies. That’s the case with many famous bands, especially the likes of the Beatles who still continue to dominate in the music world.
Billie Eilish has paid homage to many great artists and the Beatles are one of them. The popstar emerged in the scene with her massive 2019 debut “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”
The artist’s eclectic mix of pop, trap, alt-rock, and electronic music has earned her success and universal acclaim, but not without some kind of backlash as is all too familiar in the music world.
Many people were turned off by dark themes and melodies that Billie put within her songs.
Her style was so different than the usual pop sound that many fans labeled it as too depressing and dark, something that Eilish recently revealed came as a surprise to her.
In an upcoming Audible series called “Origins”, Eilish explained why she didn’t agree with the people who called her music “sad and dark” (via Rolling Stone): “It was so weird to me when I was first coming up and, and the thing everybody said was, like, ‘Billie Eilish’s music is so depressing, and it’s so sad, and it’s too dark,’ and I was like, ‘What are you talking about?'”
She then went on to talk about the Beatles and how some of their most beautiful songs have been songs that can be taken in a bright, but also very dark way with the way that the songs have been structured. She stated: “‘Have you listened to the Beatles and ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ and ‘Yesterday’, and Lana Del Rey? Like, what the hell?’ It was so surprising to me that people thought anything I was creating was dark. I mean, it’s real.”
