It’s a bummer that some people don’t know who Electric Light Orchestra are.Can you please just do me a favor and listen to this? I usually don’t condone greatest hits albums but this is an emergency.

Jeff Lynne: proof that a crazy fan can somehow become friends with his idols, and mimic their music just enough to turn that into a career (In this case, the Beatles).

New chart looking at the Beatles’ post-Beatles careers and collaborations with other members of the band.

Awesome. But I’m pretty sure “McCartney” was by Paul, not Ringo…

The Beatles playing The Ed Sullivan Show is just one of the crazy 8-bit GIFs in our slideshow of famous moments in music history, all done by musician Joshua Carrafa.

This should be accompanied by this MIDI of “I Want To Hold Your Hand”

Watch a rare Beatles video on iTunes

guardianmusic:

Over on iTunes, they’ve just unveiled an exclusive new Beatles compilation, Tomorrow Never Knows. If you head to the album’s page, you can currently stream this rare video of one of the album’s tracks, Hey Bulldog, for free. CS

I’m actually enough of a Beatles nerd to already have this video. It’s a cool look inside that middle-period recording process, when they were arguably at their most care-free and wild.

Also, it elicits one of those “oh wow, John Lennon was a redhead” moments.

Even if you’re not a musician, there’s something incredible about the iconic crash of the first chord on The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night. What is that chord anyway?

In a letter dated 12 August 1960 to an unknown drummer, Paul McCartney writes:
"Dear Sir,
In reply to your advertisement in Echo, Wed night, we would like to offer you an audition for the position of drummer in the group.
You will, however, need to be free soon for a trip to Hamburg (expenses paid ₤ 18 per week (approx.) for 2 months.)
If interested , ring Jacaranda Club, Slater St. [ROYAL 6544] and ask for either a member of the ‘BEATLES’ Alan Williams, or else leave a message, stating when you will be available.
Yours sincerely,
Paul McCartney of THE BEATLES”


The letter is a part of an upcoming auction at Christies and is expected to fetch approximately ₤ 7,000.

When the outtake is better than the album version…

I’m a HUGE Beatles fan, and obsess over the Anthology, which is chock full of “outtakes”; glimpses into the songwriting genius and studio wizardry behind the greatest band of all time. Not many of these are fully-recorded, alternate versions though. In this case, “The Fool on the Hill (Take 4)” off of Anthology 2 is in my opinion, better than the album track. It’s got a more dystopian feel, a bit of angst, that the album version doesn’t. I think it holds truer to the lyrics, about a misanthropic loner, than the pep-in-your-step official cut. I think its that relentless, driving, minor acoustic chord that is up front for the entire song. (For comparison, here is the album cut).
