Let It Be was the best cover. Stevie Wonder, Eurythmics were good too.

Paul & Ringo both sounded great, they gave it all.

Really no interest in this special.

But I'm totally down to relive memories from the old Beatoffs thread.

One of the most consistently funny periods in Bang & Clatter history.

I liked that thread a lot, but more because of the shared love of the band. That being said, agreed that it was also a good stretch for B&C as it pertained to laughs.

Watching the special, about 1/2 way through. Stevie Wonder is the highlight thus far.

I flipped past this so-called Beatles special,
it was terrible.

To see a bunch of jack holes butcher the songs. Why not put on just the recorded performances of the Beatles.

Imagine Dragons are horrible, I would expect them to do terrible things to revolution. Or any cover.

I heard sgt pepper in its entirety on the radio last night, though. That was nice.

How bad was Pete Best if they actually sat down and said "ya know, I think we're gonna go with Ringo"?

And secondly... So you think Paul still stares down Yoko when he plays Get Back?

(yes, I'm watching the show on DVR right now)

I think the Ringo decision had more to do with persona than musical ability.

So what you're saying is people had a much different definition of annoying back in the 60s

I think I just learned that Ringo is the inventor of the white man's dance

I had a blast watching that last night. People take covers far too seriously sometimes. Paul and Ringo were having a ball, that's really all that matters, to me.

Also them singing together was just about one of the happiest moments in television watching history for me.

Some of the covers were great... others not so much. But that's not what bothered me the most.

I just thought that CBS fucked up.

They should have filmed the entire thing at the Ed Sullivan Theater as was originally rumored, performances and all, and should had a real tribute... not a half tribute, half opportunity to plug CBS. Did I really need to see LL Cool J open the show, and the chick from NCIS in the front row? Come now...

Some things should be above shameless network promotion.

The Grohl/Lynn/Walsh performances were my favorites - Lynn and Walsh on 'Something', Grohl and Lynn on 'Hey Bulldog', and Walsh, Gary Clark Jr., and Grohl on 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'.

After that, probably Mayer and Urban on 'Don't Let Me Down' and Ed Sheeran on 'In My Life'.

Didn't much care for Stevie's 'We Can Work It Out', and I love Stevie. I just thought it was a bit 'much'.

I love how excited Grohl was during 'Hey Jude' - he had a childlike excitement just sharing a stage with Paul and Ringo. It was endearing, imo.

Thumbs Up

Watched the Beatles' Special last night. I thought it was awesome. I actually enjoy when an artist covers a song and gives it their own interpretation. We've heard one version millions of times, so I don't see anything wrong with doing things a little differently.
