April-2014 update: Please scroll down to the comments area to read the visitors’ awesome contributions with more identified songs!
A couple of days ago I got a link recommendation from a friend suggesting me to read the history of James Richards, a guy who supposedly had an incredible experience traveling to a parallel world to ours and then discovering that in that ‘parallel world’ The Beatles never broke up. Even John and George are alive and rockin’ on. If you are interested in reading the history, which in my opinion if not true, the guy only needs a gentle dose of space cakes to create a Hollywood-esque movie script, anyway read it here.
To this, dozens of bloggers, critics and mainly Beatles hardcore connoisseurs have summed up giving their sharply bladed word, for instance you can find Bungallow Bill’s post ‘Everyday Chemistry Beatles Hoax: The unreleased Beatles’ album? Review’ or Nick Spacek’s post on Pitch Music Blog.
Well, this post is not to discuss the validity of that history, even though is 99.9% hard to believe to be truth.
What I’m proposing here is to break-up each of the songs of the Everyday Chemistry album, which is clearly a mash up of Beatles soloist’s career. Although is not an official album, I have to recognize that I’m starting to like this mash-up, specially the second track ‘Talking To Myself’.
By now I just can recall a few soloist songs that I identify by hear, but I’ll updated when I’m done reviewing my Beatles library or with your comments, we can work it out together though!
