This is obvious fantasy based, but watching the halftime show last week I couldn't help but wonder how 'The Beatles' would have done it. So I thought I'd make a fun little topic out of it!

 

So have a go! If you had 30 mins (I say 30 since I'm sure if The Beatles were to reunite for a game they would give them that time!) what songs would you pick? I would want them to just come out and jam, not many theatrics (only a few at certain parts to make the fans go wild lol) So have at it friends!

 

My setlist for them would be something like this:

 

Come Together (All the way through first chorus into  solo leading into….) (1:52)

All My Loving (Whole song leading into…) (2:08)

Help! (First Verse, Final Chorus) (:56)

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (All the way through the solo and lead into…) (2:30)

Let It Be (All the way through solo into…) (2:25)

Strawberry Fields Forever (All the way through solo..) (3:10)

Yesterday (Whole song leading into..) (2:07)

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (Sing all the way and stopping before the 'Picture yourself on a train…" section leading into…) (2:09)

Octopus Garden (All the way into the solo leading into) (1:55)

I Am The Walrus (Sing through but end before "Sitting in an english garden" into…) (2:10)

Obla Di Obla Da (Sing through and ending before the repeat of "In a couple of years) (2:13)

Something (Sing through solo into…Love, Love, Love) (2:33)

All You Need Is Love (This is when everyone is let onto the field. Sing until the final 'Love is all you need' where they start to repeat it into…) (2:33)

Hey Jude (All the way and stop before Paul's Ad libs during the 'Na Na Na' section) (4:00)

 

Total time: 30:42

 

That was so hard! I wanted to end it with 'The End' but I guess 'Hey Jude' is a great way to go out on The Superbowl. Let me know what you guys think and feel free to add your own setlists!

I say what would be cool is if they did a career evolving kind of set list Since Halftime is around 30 Minutes i have chosen 10 songs that could work

1. All My Loving (It was the first song they preformed on The Ed Sullivan Show)

2. I Want To Hold Your Hand

3. Help

4. She's A Woman (My 2nd Favorite Beatles song)

5. Day Tripper

6. Rain (My Favorite Beatles song)

7. With A Little Help From My Friends (So We can get atleast one Ringo song in)

8. Strawberry Fields Forever

9. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

10. Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End

I Think that Rolling Stone should do a cover story of The Rolling Stones covering "Like a Rolling Stone" or if a Type of Beetle was named after The Beatles.

Halftime acts at the Super Bowl get 12 minutes. Sorry to spoil it, but they get 12 minutes.

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

The OP said 30 because if the Beatles reunited, they'd be likely to get more time. The halftime thing's what inspired the idea, but it's pretty much just a 30 minute concert.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!
