Tears for Fears' 1989 worldwide Top 10 hit, Sowing the Seeds of Love.

When TFF reunited in the 200s, they released an album called "Everybody Loves a Happy Ending" that's even more insanely Beatlesque than "Seeds of Love," with deliberate musical and lyrical references to songs such as "A Day In The Life" (right down to the alarm clock), "Come Together," "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," to name a few. When they performed one of their songs live, Roland Orzabal segued a bit into "Let 'Em In."

It can get a bit tiring, actually. But if you're in the right mood, it's a nice tribute and it's fun to spot the references. During my Beatles hiatus years, I became a TFF fan, and I'm sure I wouldn't appreciate The Beatles half as much as I do now if it weren't for them.

parlance, noticing this is forum post is #909 :->

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

I don't particularly love ELO either. Jeff Lynne's major trick seems to be trying as hard as he can to evoke a Beatles vibe, then turning it into a quasi-operatic over-compressed production-fest. That said, I am fond of "Telephone Line", which is absurdly melodramatic and overblown but the pre-chorus and chorus melody just really get me.

And as for other artists who sound like the Beatles, there's Emitt Rhodes, who has been referred to as the "one-man Beatles" although a more apt title would be "McCartney-lite." His self-titled album was released in 1970 and he played all the instruments and sang all the harmonies himself. Vocally he also sounds a LOT like Paul. Considering that he was only 20 years old when he made the album, it is rather impressive - he has a serious ear for melody and there are a few tunes on it that I really enjoy. Sadly they are difficult to find on the internet so I'll post a few that I could find on YouTube...
