Beatles drummer Ringo Starr lets another group do the perfor

The cult of personality that was/is The Beatles. Fan or not, there is no denying they changed everything, musically and beyond. Right place, right time, they acted as (initially anyways) enthusiastic agents of change. And then reluctantly. While there (obviously) is no shortage of on-the-nose Beatles inspired music out there, I’ve long been fascinated by the songs about the band. And there are many — the good, the bad, and in many cases, the truly bizarre. Here are a few favorites: The Motions’ surf ode to Ringo, “Beatle Drums”, The Fondettes’ mash note, “The Beatles Are In Town”, and Japanese trio The Pebbles’ “We Love The Beatles”. Hit us up with your favorites, below.
