I looked earlier, but the iTunes calculation is incorrect. It says I can listen to them all in 18.4 days. That's not even close for over 7,300 songs.

Maroon 5 really did a great job, as did Joe Walsh on "Something". I kept looking at the "sidelines" to see if that was Frampton providing most of the leads for the evening, and Ringo finally introduced him during his set. One of the biggest highlights for me was the Sgt. Peppers/Little Help from my friends medlee. Wow, talk about being transported back. I was not crazy about all of the arrangements but it was basically a variety show.

McCartney's bass playing was great and Ringo looks like he can still pound on the drums.

Loved the Eric Idle "Ruttles" routine.

Amazing when you think about it. To imitate the Beatles it looked like they needed about 12 musicians and 4 backup singers. Those young lads from Liverpool could rock.

I wondered about that after I posted. Says for 7900 plus songs it would take 28 days some amount of hours and minutes. Wish I had the time to find out who's right.

Sgt. Pepper and With a Little Help from my Friends was the highlight for me. Can you imagine if there had been a Sgt. Peppers Tour?

Once they stopped touring after the Candlestick concert in Aug. '66, the Beatles became a studio recording band, each member recording their part (or parts) serparately. Freed from having to peform their songs live, they used all kinds of studio tricks to make their songs--multiple overdubs was just the start. A number of songs also used a string section or even a small classical orchestra. Their music became far more complex, but it really couldn't be performed live by just four people.

Before the "Abbey Road" sessions, Pail wanted the band to return to recording live as a band (the concert on the roof was a result of this); these were the "Get Back" sessions which ultimately were a failure, but in 1970 the masters were given to Phil Spector and the resulting album was "Let It Be".

I have thought, for years, that Paul and Ringo should hook up with Sean Lennon and Dhani Harrison and have a charity concert which started with the rooftop and ended with Sergeant Pepper. Oh what a night! smile.gif

And what happened with Julian Lennon. Is he persona non grata? No mention of him at all.

Wonderfully stated. Except it started before then. I was at the Candlestick concert and was surprised they didn't do any recent songs. But by then they couldn't.

Ringo sang "Boys" that night. He sounded the same on the show!

+1..... Take away the auto-tune and other effects and she's just an American Idol reject. rolleyes.gif

Annie Lennox sounded a quite a bit over-the-hill on "Fool on a Hill".

I could have happily lived the rest of my life without ever having heard Imagine Dragon's country-fied version of Revolution . . . eek.gif

Ed Sheeran (whoever he is) managed to single-handedly ruin "In my Life".. frown.gif

The rest of the show was quite enjoyable . . . smile.gif

Yeah, I didn't really like that either, but it's actually a lot closer to to how the album version of the song (titled "Revolution No. 1") sounds than the very popular single version that most people are familiar with. The "White Album" version is way slower and more "folksier" or "acoustic-er" (if that's word).

Yeah (60-year-old here) I'm well familiar with both versions. I'm not at all familiar with Imagine Dragon, but a name like that doesn't imply "country" to me. However I had the impression they were trying to make Revolution sound like country music.

I'd be pleased if today's mainstream recording industry would simply learn how to make country music sound like country music. Hint: there's more to it than a cowboy hat and a twang.

I had no issue with any of the renditions, they did not have to mimic the originals - if they did then just make it a clip show. Differing takes on a song keep it fresh and original, and often bring a new meaning to age old lyrics. I would have perhaps chosen different performers, Katie Perry was only there to draw a younger audience - luckily we didn't get Mily....

LL Cool J to open? Yeah, that would have been my first choice. rolleyes.gif I get why they did that, gotta cover all the bases, but the only blacks in attendance were family and friends of the performers.

Stop inviting Johnny Depp to any event. He seems like he'd rather be anywhere but where he is. And he always acts like he's doped up, which is why a five year old can read a teleprompter better than he can.

Count me as one of the very few who actually liked the Imagine Dragon (never heard of them) version of Revolution. It got off to a slow start, but by the end I was into it.

There were very few covers that I enjoyed (maybe 3 or 4). And that was because I didn't think they did a good job of matching the performers with the song. The Fool on the Hill was butchered. Sérgio Mendes and Brasil '66 have the best cover, and I like it as much if not more than the Beatles version.

The most enjoyable part of the evening was when Paul and Ringo performed. Ringo looks great for his age.

But If you watch any TV at all you've no doubt heard their hit song "Radioactive". I think there was some requirement that it appear in montage sequences in every single television show made last year. Just selling the rights to that song alone to all those shows must have set them up for life. Might as well retire now...

Beat me to it ... (See also the YouTube universe of cover videos.)

PS: Oddly the only cover that made me cringe a bit was "Let It Be." Half good, half WHY????
