It should be no secret to my readers that I’m a huge Beatles fan. I often get asked which is my favorite Beatles song, and the answer has been the same since around 1970: Let It Be. However, the single version is much better than the album version.
I thought for today’s Music on Mondays, instead of playing songs by The Beatles, we’d explore some songs that reference The Beatles. These are not all of them by any means, but these are some of my favorites, and I only used songs which I have in my music collection
“I Saw It On T.V.” by John Fogerty, 1985
‘Cause four guys from England took us all by the hand.
It was time to laugh, time to sing, time to join the band
“Never Been To Spain” by Three Dog Night, 1971
Well I’ve never been to England, but I kind of like The Beatles.
“All The Young Dudes” by Mott the Hoople, 1972
And my brother’s back at home with his Beatles and his Stones.
“Summer Rain” by Johnny Rivers, 1973
All summer long we spent dancin’ in the sand
And the jukebox kept on playin’
Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
“Shooting Star” by Bad Company, 1975
Johnny was a school boy when he heard his first Beatles song.
“Love Me Do,” I think it was and from there it didn’t take him long.
“We Didn’t Start The Fire” by Billy Joel, 1989
“The Seeker” by The Who, 1970
They call me the seeker. I’ve been searching low and high.
I won’t get to get what I’m after till the day I die.
I asked Bobby Dylan, I asked The Beatles,
I asked Timothy Leary, but he couldn’t help me either.
