I meant to add this thought I had while watching the Ohio State Band performance.

I think it is cool that they just assumed everyone would know what/how to sing along to the end of Hey Jude. The stadium was probably filled with lots of young, college age kids, and they na-na-na'd along beautifully.

Did someone say Jeff Beck Beatle cover? I just found this live version of "She's A Woman"! I was previously only familiar with the (George Martin produced) album version (also talkbox-led.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Yeah, tho in that People article it quotes Kurt from 1989 saying he wasnt a Paul McCartney fan. Maybe he changed his mind and came to his senses. Who can resist Paul?

@Into the Sky with Diamonds 

THAT. WAS. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   beatlemaniacs_02_gif heart 

I was enraptured... and I'm not normally a huge fan of 'Hotel California', but I must admit the chords are out of this world. It looked like terrific fun, and she kept glancing up saucily like, 'Yeah, you know it!' 

Then I watched her cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps

beatlemaniacs_02_gif X 20!!!!!!! 

It took my breath away. God, she's good. I am, to put it mildly, impressed.

Maybe an odd song to choose since this is a gathering to show off national pride in a competition?

Me too! Pre-disco era Bee Gees were tremendous. What a talented family - such harmonies, even on the video you posted.

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