Note by Ahhh Girl 20 September 2014: The original topic title was "Are there Beatles songs that sound exactly the same?" Since that isn't exactly what MeanMrsMustard meant, I changed the title to be more reflective of the conversations in the thread. I also merged in a thread that had the title "Beatles songs that remind you of other Beatles songs" which had listings of songs that people thought sounded similar. The posts in that thread are now here as posts 43-59 and 78.

OK, the topic title sounded better in my head. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

I'm pretty sure everyone's heard a band/artist whose songs all sounded exactly the same. If you've heard one of their songs, you've heard them all. 

I was wondering (OK, worrying) if there were any Beatles songs that sounded really similar to others. I can't really think of any off the top of my head, because it's 5:30 AM, my time. 

You can also post songs that sound similar to songs by other groups/artists (OK, I'm just going to say "musicians" from now on) that aren't actually covers of the songs by other musicians. My example is "I'm Down" and "Good Golly, Miss Molly." 

OK, rant/ramble over. You can either respond or ignore me. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Well, She Loves You and Sie Liebt Dich sound pretty similar to me. And have you heard I Want To Hold Your Hand next to Komm Gib Mir Dein Hand? Think about it!

*cough*

There aren't any that I can think of at the moment...

Oh, ha ha. Let me go check iTunes….

EDIT: There's a bit in "Till There Was You" (A little guitar thing near the end) that reminds me of "Every day, we'll be happy, I know" from "It Won't Be Long." Could that be any more vague?

I actually was thinking about putting "This Boy" and "Yes it Is" in the original post, but for some reason I shot it down.

John's quiet songs on the White Album sound a bit similar since he uses the same picking (Dear Prudence, Julia, Happiness Is A Warm Gun). All totally different, though.


You can add Look At Me from Plastic Ono Band to this list. I always thought the guitar in that song was very similar to the guitar in Julia.

Hey! Does that mean if I have posted but He hasn't that the thread isnt worth anything, and by extension my posts are worthless?

No. I mean that Zig is cool, plus it was his first post in a while. (Welcome back!) I might have posted that if you had posted before... you'll never know! Muahahaha....

Somebody say something that's on topic!

I find The Anthology 3 version of WMGGW similar to an early Beatles song, but I can`t place what song

Evan - could it be Do You Want To Know A Secret?

And thanks for the welcome back, M3. I was having a great time with Christmas and am now enjoying a few days off work.

I guess, they are both Vaudevillian in a way.

If you listen closely to the electric version, I think there's someone playing a kazoo that got buried in the mix.

In all seriousness, I think bits of I Want You sound similar to Because.

Well, the beginning of All You Need Is Love is very similar to the French national anthem.  Also, it sounds similar to Greensleeves at the end.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

And there's a bit from "The Prince of Denmark" at the end of "It's All Too Much."
