You know how you'll start humming along with the radio and then suddenly the voice that sings out isn't the one you were expecting? "Ice Ice Baby" used to just drive me crazy like that, though Vanilla himself always maintained that they were totally different because the sample doubled a note. I was a moron in my early 20s but I wasn't in so much of a hurry that I'd believe that.
Anyway, there are songs that always always remind me of the Beatles and no matter how often I hear them it's always a little surprise to not hear Paul McCartney and John Lennon harmonizing. Here are a couple of them (but no Oasis).
There She Goes, The Las
Well, they were from Liverpool so they at least come by it honestly. This song peaked at 49 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1988; Sixpence None The Richer's 1999 cover reached 32.
I'll Be There For You, The Rembrandts
I was never a huge Friends fan but this song is catchy like the flu.
Can't Change Me, Chris Cornell
Part of Cornell's legend is that he suffered an episode of major depression as a teen and acted out by breaking into abandoned buildings. In one building he found a box of Beatles records, took them home and listened to nothing but them for about a year. When he emerged from his room he'd decided to become a musician.
So, what reminds you of the Beatles or another artist?
