Existentialist
EXISTENTIALISM (/ɛɡzɪˈstɛnʃəlɪzəm/ ) is the work of certain late-19th- and 20th-century European philosophers who, despite profound doctrinal differences, shared the belief that philosophical thinking begins with the human subject—not merely the thinking subject, but the acting, feeling, living human individual . While the predominant value of existentialist thought is commonly acknowledged to be freedom, its primary virtue is authenticity . In the view of the existentialist, the individual's starting point is characterized by what has been called "the existential attitude", or a sense of disorientation, confusion, or dread in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world. Many existentialists have also regarded traditional systematic or academic philosophies, in both style and content, as too abstract and remote from concrete human experience

Moptop
The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon , Paul McCartney , George Harrison and Ringo Starr , they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential act of the rock era. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania ", but as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney , they came to be perceived as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the counterculture of the 1960s . Their continued commercial and critical success assisted many cultural movements—including a shift from American artists' global dominance of rock and roll to British acts (British Invasion ), the proliferation of young musicians in the 1960s who formed new bands, the album as the dominant form of record consumption over singles , the term "Beatlesque " used to describe similar-sounding artists, and several fashion trends
