Boing Boing pointed me to this post at Bolus which shows just what 1964 wrought. It’s not pretty. Are you ready for a Bollywood version of “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”? I DON’T THINK YOU ARE.

Wherever he is, George just threw up in his mouth…Still, I just listened to it twice, and may go back for a third.

    British comedy writers have always been intensely amused by India and Indian culture. (See Peter Sellers in The Party)

    The British humorists who wrote HELP! couldn’t resist poking fun at that culture, which led to George being exposed to sitars. Which led to the lads embracing TM, and “Within You Without You” being copied by other bands.

    If the scriptwriters had chosen a different plot, the whole history of the Beatles and the ’60s might have been altered.

    So you can say a good part of the psychedelic ’60s owes its influence to some hack British comedy screenwriters.
