Finally, a clear and scientific explanation of the Beatles' success. (Caution: it's all very scientific.)
What if every human being were to enter into a similar pact with Satan? Would that not lead to a glut of great music and just kill the damn market?
On the other hand, if we were all deprived of fame and fortune forever, would we not be a simpler, happier people? Soulless, yes, but simpler and happier, finally freed of all desires, content to be writing, painting, singing, knitting without an eye on the prize. All thanks to Satan.
I say turn me on, Red man.
