    I’m only 14 minutes in so far, but I peeked at the playlist hoping that Tiny Tim would be on this and you did not disappoint. This is hitting the same spot in my heart as the mixtape I got a while ago of fake Beatles bootlegs

    This was a great episode, I was really hoping for some Bubba Ho-Tep references, but in retrospect I can’t really think of any that would have made sense. The Dread Zeppelin track at the end was dope for sure.

    @Gimpeyjoe: Fake Beatles bootlegs? I knew that these things were prevalent, but enough to fill a decent mixtape, eh? I’m intrigued…

     


    @Max
    : I love the idea of Bubba Ho-Tep, but I’ve never made it through without falling asleep. And if you know my history of insomnia, that’s really saying something. Is it something I should power through in chunks for an assumingly worthwhile payoff?

    I’m going to have to check an older computer to find it, but it was a 14 tracks, if I recall correctly

    Failed search attempts at least pulled up this:

    If you do a Beatles cover episode look up the Beatle’s cover band that did the a cover of Stairway to Heaven. I can’t say how good it was but it has always stuck in my ear’s mind.

    Listening to the Elvish-isode now.

    @mark, I find it extremely amusing, but if it didn’t have you at hello, it probably isn’t going to grab you by goodbye.

    Beatles covers, eh?  This is a bit of a side step, but have you ever heard of the “Wings” song “Love Take Me Down to the Streets”?   It’s one of my favorite music jokes in recent years:

    Woah, that Beatles covers idea seems like it has legs. It was just something I was compiling and toying with, but it sounds like there’s quite a bit of interest in it. I’ll take the idea a bit more seriously!

     

    @anduin Do you have a link for that cover of Stairway To Heaven?

     

    @gimpeyjoe I have never heard EITHER of those things, and they sound right up my alley for that type of episode. This’ll be a toughie to compile because pretty much every artist that has more than ten songs under their belt references the group at some point, you know?

     

    @thebigbadshadowman Thanks a lot! My wife had the idea, I simply did the legwork. Once she mentioned it, there was kinda no way I couldn’t tackle it.

     

    @cap Holy crap, I had never heard that song as a stand alone track, and as a massive fan of Wings… yeah. They nailed it. Sounds like a London Town-era outtake, but… good. (Love Wings, but that album is one of McCartney’s few clunkers to my ears).

    Also, at this point, I could likely do a month of Beatles themed episodes (all different topics) and never actually play a note by the group themselves.

    @Marc

    Here is the video link where I heard the cover. It reminds me of the early Beatles sound, and although the group seems to use some of the cliche Beatle sounds, it is still a catchy tune.

    @anduin I’m pretty sure that shuts down most of the parody games. Jesus. That’s amazing!
