Here’s one of my favorite Beatles covers just released.
It’s hard to grasp the number of timeless melodies the Beatles have written. What makes them timeless is they are as fresh today as they were 50 years ago. Their songwriting prowess cannot be contested when one considers the number of tunes the average person can recognize as Beatles’ hits. It’s easy to make a song sound new again when the melody is memorable and singable. So, one reason I enjoy covering Beatles songs is because their melodies are timeless.
Most of the songs the Beatles wrote were during a season of my life when music and life events were pretty much woven into each other, like a quilt. Remembering what I was doing when I first heard “Yesterday” or “And I Love Her” brings pleasant feelings that the future was bright and life was good. Wanting to offer people music that lifts them up, playing Beatles covers is a winning strategy.
