Como la industria musical más predecible, Sing Swan Songs desempolva el arma definitiva para el consumo musical navideño: Los Beatles. El regalo perfecto para padres y abuelos

Una de las series temáticas de Sing Swan Songs es el repaso a canciones que han gustado tanto a nuestros artistas favoritos que han llegado a versionarlas. Hace un año lo hicimos con los Stones, poseriormente con Yo La Tengo, hoy es el turno de los FabFour.

Creo que o más interesante de este programa es que, si os fijáis en las fechas, todos los temas son anteriores a la grabación del primer LP de los Beatles. Se trata de los temas que mamaron y versionaron hasta la saciedad ya fuera en The Cavern de Liverpool o el Star Club de Hamburgo. Los temas que les hicieron adorar el Rock y crear su propio sonido.
