Screw It, We're Just Gonna Talk About the Beatles

Friends from the Los Angeles comedy scene discuss the Beatles, one album at a time. We have no special qualifications nor reason to do this. And we often get facts wrong or leave them out. We just want to because we're obsessed with the Beatles, like any rational human. TOPICS INCLUDE: Reasons we love them! Stories we've read! Opinions we hold! Excitement we cannot contain! THE BEATLES!

The panel discusses the 2006 album Love. A soundtrack to a Cirque du Soleil show, it is also a terrific standalone listening experience. Giles Martin, a then new produce on the Beatles team, carried on his father's legacy and oversaw the project brilliantly.

The new (at the time) mixes brought new life to beloved songs. The mashups, which could have been gimmicky and cheap, were thoughtful and artfully chosen -- they still sound great over 15 years later. Even the sequencing -- starting off with the acapella version of "Because" and ending with the triumphant "All You Need Is Love" -- is deft and tasteful. Along the way, the Beatles of every era is showcased -- sometimes with original tracks, sometimes mashups, sometimes demo versions and alternate takes. The final product is a must-listen for any Beatles fan.

The sons of Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote a song together called "Primrose Hill", and that merits an emergency episode from the panel. Katie put her Paris vacation on hold so she could get to a computer and the full panel could discuss this event! We listen to the song together and give our first reactions live and then discuss our thoughts! Please enjoy!
