Fabricated Fab Four

Back in the 1970s during David Bowie's heyday he recorded an album of old hits and called his album "Pinups". This actually helped his career by helping to define him at a time when a lot of people were having a hard time understanding just what it was he was all about. The songs on Pinups were songs that sounded like they could have originally been David Bowie songs and he played them in his style but real close to the original arrangements.

If The Beatles had lasted a bit longer I wonder if they might have recorded an album of non-Beatles Beatles songs. I mean hit songs written and recorded by other bands but that were clearly inspired by the music of the Fab Four.

Here is my song list for such an album;

Go All The Way by The Raspberries

Mr. Blue Sky by ELO

Lies by The Knickerbochers

No Matter What by Badfinger

Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying by Gerry and the Pacemakers

Oh You Pretty Things by David Bowie

Sowing The Seeds Of Love by Tears For Fears

Last Train To Clarksville by The Monkees

Tell Her No by The Zombies

Somebody Made For Me by Emitt Rhodes

Because by The Dave Clark Five

Such A Night by Tim Piper

I would LOVE to hear a really good Beatles tribute band record a CD like this doing their very best Beatles impression. Think of the payback; a Beatles band playing a bunch of songs by bands trying to sound like The Beatles.
