May I suggest THE BOBS' a'cappella version of HELTER SKELTER? Few Beatles covers are this funny.Check it out of you can find it.


ANTHOLOGY 3 is my favorite of the series. It's really convenient how CD 1 is entirely made up of 'white album' material. Sometimes I put the 'white album' and ANTHOLOGY 3 disc 1 in my CD changer and I'm off to 'white album' heaven!

Come and get it Paul recorded alone and gave it to Badfinger. It was never intendend as Beatle song. I think it got to number 1 in the US?

No. Badfinger haven´t had any no. 1 hits. "Come and get it" reached no. 7 position in US and 4 in UK

From a 1996 Mojo interview........

Macca: .....Come And Get It.That was a straightforward pop song,you know,with the old innuendos: Come and get what?

Mojo: Did you consider it as a Beatles song for Abbey Road?

Macca: Yeah. Anything I was writing then was considered.

Come And Get It? Would have gone to number 1 and sold tons, without a doubt. A flawless pop song. Paul told Badfinger to record it EXACTLY the same as he did - he knew what he was talking about.

In my point of view this is the best of the Anthology albums. There is so many great songs and different arrangements. I love this version of Helter Skelter
Now junior behave yourself
