About 24 years ago, there was a cat named Gregg Tripp and his song "Time" was very Beatlesque. He even has the John Lennon guitar stance down to a T:

As in the melody only. I don't mean songs that have, for example, 'Yellow Submarine' in their lyrics. I mean songs by artists who aren't The Beatles that sound like the tune of a Beatles song :P

I have 2 so far:

Lily Allen - Not fair (Chorus)
Sounds like Yellow Submarine (Chorus)

 

Adele - Rolling In The Deep (Verse)
Sounds like Lady Madonna (Chorus)

What about yours?

FYI I moved the posts from ''songs that sound like Beatles songs'' to here. This is pretty much the same topic.

I always thought this sounded like a song the Beatles would have done had they stayed together...

Sorry I wasn't very clear when I made the post :P

My post was about Songs that actually represent real Beatles tunes
Whilst I think this post is more along the lines of songs that The Beatles could have made

It's understandable if you can't move it back though :)

For weeks I've been trying like mad to track down a song that had a definitive Beatles sound, with slightly distorted guitars and dirty John Lennon sounding vocals. The last verse of the song is "until the end", and another verse is either "heard you cry" or "made you cry". I heard this song at the gym within a mix of newer songs, so I assume this song is relatively new as well. And since I was at the gym I did not have my cell phone with me, hence no SoundHound. Does anybody have any idea what this song could be? It was absolutely fantastic, and I would greatly appreciate any help tracking it down.

Cheers!

No idea but i'm happy to throw songs out.

Doing a google search with the lyrics you mentioned brought up Adam Gontier and Until The End. I'm not expecting it to be correct in any way so don't get your hopes up. You've probably done a google search. Maybe i should leave.

Have you spoken to the gym? Some play specially created playlists or cd's so they might be able to find out for you.

10CC did an album called How Dare You.  It features "I'm Mandy Fly Me":

@DrChinese Don't worry about the ads when posting youtube clips, they don't usually appear outside of youtube - and even there they come up randomly. 

Nice to have you hear.

Not sure this is exactly the right place. It's a rewritten cover. Chumbawamba's version of Her Majesty. It does sound Beatle-ish!

I'm putting together compilation of Beatles-inspired tracks. After some internet research, I've found a ton of great songs that clearly show a Beatles influence, but I noticed I've only found a few tracks by female artists. I know they're out there, does anyone have any leads? I'm looking for songs by female artists or bands - or just songs with female vocalists - that are clearly Beatles-influenced. Any help would be much appreciated!

@shichimi

I moved your post here. Perhaps this thread will help you with your research and/or someone will have some more ideas for you.

Also, may I ask a favor? We have a very active poster who uses the avatar you have chosen. Would you consider changing yours? It will cut down on confusion as to which of you we are corresponding with.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Just heard the song 'And We Danced' by The Hooters that feature the lyrics:

She was a bebop baby on A Hard Day's Night
She was hanging on Johnny, he was holding on tight
a-hard-days-night-john-4

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
