Another early Bee Gees song. This one sounds like a mashup of Taxman , I Want To Tell You and If I Needed Someone :

And for those who didn't know already, that album artwork is by a certain Klaus Voorman.

Evangeline said awhile ago
Early BeeGees sound really Beatley. 

Like this song;

https://youtu.be/xLzfjPkNaM8

 

It's like a strange combination of Taxman and all the songs off of Rubber Soul .

(A very good album in it's entirety, if any one has the time.)

I don't want to go through all 13 pages.

Did anyone mention these?

Sorry if they did.

This song by David Gilmour has a riff toward the end that sounds very similar to the recurring Abbey Road theme (the rest of it is reminiscent of other Gilmour/Floyd tunes).

https://youtu.be/gErAxKXZJwo

I also think that the harmony/some of the chord changes in this song is rather Beatlesque:

I was listening to 'Quicksand' by David Bowie, and I had it paused at ~2:35, and when I unpaused it, I realised that the falsetto chorus sounds very Beatlesque, like Abbey Roadish or something.

Listened to The Tremeloes for the first time the other day - I did post their song "Right Wheel, Left Hammer, Sham" as the song I'm on a kick of, but I also really like this song of theirs called "Me And My Life":

Thought it sounded like a cool cross between Hello Goodbye and Come Together , not to mention the lead vocal on the verses which could easily be John!

I first heard this track on a compilation of early Randy Newman-written songs recorded by other artists, and I thought it was a first-rate knockoff of early Beatles. I'd almost believe it was an obscurity of the Hard Day's Night period. A good one, at that. Even the slightly dinky guitar solo evokes the obvious model. It was a collaboration between Newman and Jackie DeShannon.

Not exactly Beatlesque, but I think this late 70s Hollies cut sounds like it could have come from George's 33 1/3 album:

I found this site when I was searching for "sounds like Beatles" in an attempt to remember Emmitt Rhodes' name.  Please pardon the extreme cheek of posting my own song but it has elements from a number of Beatles tunes.  Not done intentionally, mind you, it's just what a lifetime of listening does.  It was written to "celebrate" the election of the worst president in US history.
