(YouTube)   So, what if the Beatles had stayed together into the 70s? Probably something like this   (youtube.com) divider line 59

If you go look at the guys video list, he has ones that, IMO, work much better (Paranoid/We Will Rock You,  Stop In the Name of Love/Evil Woman)

This one is particularly audacious:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Puo0MZDuqBQ

Is it just me or do most of these mash-ups just try a little too hard?  I've seen quite a few but overall they're getting tiresome.  Not to mention it's just another form of sampling to make a new song, but without bothering to add anything original on top.  But hey, video!

Hell no. Some grievous mismatches in key.

Is that a record for longest surviving?

That's a good one.  This one really blew me a away.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIEIl5FGrig

The Tears for Fears bit seems a bit forced (still works), but the rest is really well produced.  Plus, the video has lots of 80's nostalgia throughout.

I thought that Badfinger and Klaatu were supposed to be the 70s versions of the Beatles.

hippyneil: Personally I always thought they'd sound more like this


Yep.  The Beatles were revolutionary, but they absolutely adapted to the sound of the times.  Much less so with their solo work.  As a group, if all the crap that lead to their break-up didn't happen, I'd think they would sound a lot like ELO during that time period.

Definately, Stayin' Alive in the Wall is probably their best known one, which works uncannily well.

Thunderbusters has grown on me.

The Beatles would have become ELO and, by extension, the Travelling Woolburys.

This, along with the inexplicable popularity of Aerosmith, is proof that evolution favors sheer fortitude, not quality.

If you ask me (and I realize no one did), Rock Sugar dominates the mash-up market.

If you want the Beatles in the 1970s, just listen to some Electric Light Orchestra.

Sgt. Pepper's as imagined with Guns n Roses. Interesting.

At least one of Beatles agreed.

The Beatles were a major influence on Lynne. In 1968, while performing with the Idle Race, he met The Beatles during the making of The White Album. Years later he admitted, "To be in the same room as the four of them caused me not to sleep for, like, three days." The original aim of ELO was to take up "where the Beatles had left off, and to present it on stage." Indeed, John Lennon had called them the "Sons of the Beatles".

That sucked donkey balls, but has inspired me to tell a story.   In about '85 I threw a quarter pound of weed in the trunk of my 1978 New Yorker Brougham and set off to drive from Bloomington, IN to Oxford OH where I had a  business engagement.  We very nearly got busted just short of the state line.  And when we did get to town there was a kerfluffle which ended in some rich, Miami student getting the middle of his face sort of bent crooked.

But eventually we met up with our business associates and once everything was concluded we chewed a handful of shrooms, toasted a doobie and headed off to some bar named  (I'm pretty sure) Graffiti.  There was a band playing and they seemed at least as zonked as we were.  The crowd was not digging their buzzed performance very much.    Anyway cutting to the chase, these waste-oids after being booed for quite some time launched into a number which essentially mashed the background music and riffs from the Beatle's "Tax Man" with the lyrics to the Stone's "19th Nervous Breakdown".  

Now your mileage may differ and of course we were shroomin our nutz off, but to this very day I'm sure that was the coolest shiat I've ever seen someone perform onstage and I've seen a few shows.  It jelled perfectly.    Wish I could remember the band's name.  You musicians out there can sort of hum this in your head for effect.

Jess Harnell is a god.  And best part is he does it for real, not just isolated tracks from other groups.  Not to mention all the awesome voices he does.

Entertaining, but Paul was really stronger on the music side and Lennon was stronger on the lyrics. Id think it would be something with Lennon singing and Paul doing the music.
I know they were no slouches in both music and lyrics and Paul himself crapped the idea that he was the music man while John the words. But it seems to be what they were best at to create the perfect storm of a band
