9 February 1964. The Beatles perform live on national television for the first time, and change the course of history.
25 July 1965. Newport Folk Festival. Dylan goes electric. Big deal.
18 June 1967. Monterey Pop Festival. Woodstock, NY. Jimi Hendrix slags off Mike Love on stage, and lights his guitar on fire as protest against Love’s treatment of Brian Wilson and the SMiLE album.
22 August 2017. The Today Show. Why Don’t We performs their HIT single and perfect song: “Something Different.” Their clothes are contemporary, while their moves bring to mind the era of Motown. The harmonies? Buddy, they’re out of this world.
It begins with an acoustic ballad, led by Dan “Workhorse” Seavey tickling the stings. A fireside jam, the boys trade off harmonies all teens will enjoy – then the boys set the shit off, and blow the roof off that bitch when that beat starts to knock and wouldn’t you know it but dan MEANS BUSINESS, Zach keeps it “weel,” Jack veers off key like any bad boy would, Jonah the rock, and Corby so chill. omg, then into a flying V format to blow the screen out of your damn laptop/celly. Make sure you’re sitting down before you press play.
Still conscious? The boys are just getting started. And mom is excited.
