Often copied, never duplicated, The Beatles were arguably the most influential pop band of the 20th century. With a little help from their friends OpenAI Jukebox, Broccaloo conducted an experiment to see what kind of music it would come up with if you fed it a bunch of the Fab Four’s classic tunes. The results are downright weird.
Awesome The Beatles
Director Peter Jackson has been working on a documentary about the legendary rock band The Beatles. It’s been delayed until August 2021, but Jackson has been kind enough to share a brief montage, much of which has been culled from more than 50 hours of never-before-seen footage of the Fab Four.
We’re pretty sure The Beatles envisioned a much larger ship when they proclaimed “We all live in a yellow submarine.” But as Living Big in a Tiny House shows us, you don’t even need to live beneath the waves to dwell in such a golden vessel. If you happen to be visiting New Zealand, you can even stay there.
Meet the REO Brothers. Based out of Tacloban, Philippines, the rock band is exceptionally talented, and does an amazing job covering tracks from The Beatles like While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Penny Lane, Something, and In My Life. They also do quite the Alan Parsons Project cover.
After hearing Regina Spektor’s cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, we knew that ballades by The Beatles lent themselves well to an Asian interpretation. Now Luna Lee has driven the point home with this warm and soothing cover version of their tune Michelle, played on the gayageum with her usual aplomb.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Abbey Road, their company Apple Corps collaborated with Trunk Animation to create a new music video for Here Comes The Sun. The clip takes us inside the famed Abbey Road Studios’ Studio Two, and features rare band images, and film footage shot by Linda McCartney.
We always thought The Beatles’ track Because a trippy and haunting tune to begin with, so it’s no wonder that the otherworldly sounds of the theremin suit the song so perfectly, especially in the capable hands of Cihan Gulbudak, one of the true masters of the unusual electronic instrument.
