I'm posting this episode on 2/9/64 - the 60th anniversary when The Beatles made their US debut, performing on The Ed Sullivan Show! Influencing classic rock, teen demographics, British Invasion artists, and media promotion, The Beatles’ music success lives on. Celebrating “all my loving” of their songs, I made a playlist of 9 Beatles cover songs done by famous musicians. Comparison to the originals, let’s take music notes.

Theme Song: "Dance Track", composed by Jessica Ann Catena

“Got to Get You Into My Life” - Earth, Wind, & Fire (1978)
“With a Little Help from My Friends” - Joe Cocker (1968-1969)
“Something” - Frank Sinatra (1970)
“Come Together” - Gary Clark Jr. & Junkie XL (2017)
“Here Comes the Sun” - Sheryl Crow (2007)
