First off, let me just say that I loved ‘Sings With the Beatles’. Firstly, I loved it because it was a very nice slice of yesteryear – which is always a good thing in my songbook. Secondly, I loved it because there were many facts sprawled through out the show – and learning is good (right kids?). Thirdly, it presents a ‘remake’ of sorts, and shows how a song can be reinterpreted through the ages (like a film in fact). Fourthly, I loved it because I do not have to think too hard to write about it – well, I am only human. And fifthly, it gives me the opportunity to boar you sh*tless with both facts from the show, and some of my own.

Still, it was fab in my eyes, and well worth a watch for anyone who enjoys things like...
Class act through and through – I love it yeah, yeah, yeah.
