Ok, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who has been caught fantasizing of what could have been. I'm a dreamer.

But, there are plenty of 'What If' kind of things that I love to indulge in. A favorite of mine and my dear friend, was when we were having a Back to the Future marathon one time at her house maybe a couple months ago, and she blurted out, "What if The Beatles jokingly or non-jokingly did a cover of 'Earth Angel'?" And then before we knew it we began hoping that maybe they did one time, and hoped that one day a miracle recording surfaced. I could just hear it in my head right now.

Another one, i think i thought of this one time while rewatching the big livestream of The Vlogbrothers in Carnegie Hall and The Mountain Goats singing John (Green)'s favorite song, 'This Year', and I thought to myself, "You know what? I could totally imagine John Lennon singing that." Although, may or may not be very late Beatles era John, or Comeback era John, although i'm pretty sure i've thought of both of those.

And then one time in 2009 I commented on some music video of that song with Hatsune Miku, 'Love Is War', like, "I totally want Yoko Ono to sing this!!!!!! XDDDDDDD" which is extremely embarrassing, to say the least.

Also I imagined them singing the entirety of the Walk The Moon debut album.

Anyone else want to share their What Ifs?

I'm not entirely sure I get this thread; I think I do, so here's my entry: The Beatles singing "YMCA," using their "Carry That Weight" gang-style vocals on the chorus. Then each one of the Beatles would take a line or two in the verses, like "You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal, you can do whatever you feel"… They would be hamming it up terribly, gesturing wildly as they played to the cheap seats. Then for the big chorus, they would pose using semaphore signals to spell out YMCA, just like they did in "HELP," wearing those distinctive overcoats and hats. And, of course, they would spell YMCA wrong, just like they did HELP.

Is that appropriately silly?
