2. The Beatles, 'A Hard Day's Night' in 'A Hard Day's Night' (1964)
The dawn of Beatlemania: John, Paul, George and Ringo race down the street, chased by their fans. Everybody gets swept up in the high-speed excitement of that mega-reverbed opening guitar chord. The Beatles might be trying to run away from the lust-crazed, clothes-tearing, screaming girls, but they can't stop grinning, especially John – they love this bit. (Who wouldn't?) The girls chase the band, but everybody's madly in love with the chase, enchanted hunters of the rock & roll thrill. This scene tells you all you need to know about how the Beatles revolutionized the entire concept of fun. But they were just getting started.
