The Beatles Defeated the Soviet USSR

It was the love of jeans and the Beatles that helped topple the USSR. Kids were not agreeable with the government, and their love for Westernó-worldó-products and culture was irresistible.

Taking away the Internet and PlayStation for these now-adult Russian citizens will cripple Putin.

This documentary is superb recounting the real Russian revolution. A full hour, but you will understand how Putin has screwed the pooch.

2. Hello?!?

That's because The Beatles were the greatest band of all time. Hell, their impact even gets its own Wikipage. LOL

4. There's a story that Soviet leadership was so concerned

about the impact of the Beatles that they sent a KGB agent to go "underground" at the Maharishi's ashram while the Beatles were there, disguised as a hippy. Supposedly, everyone immediately knew he was a spy, since his behavior was so blatantly phony and unhip.

Thanks for posting this video.

Heartbreaking though to see the concert in Kiev at the end, and to realize what's happening now.
