The beatles - hey bulldog / all together now / it's all too much

9. Hey Bulldog has been covered by a wide variety of artists, including  Alice Cooper ,  Elvis Costello , Gomez,  Cyndi Lauper ,  Dave Matthews , The Roots, and  Toad the Wet Sprocket . The song was also performed by  Dave Grohl  and  Jeff Lynne  on the TV special  The Night T hat Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles , which aired on February 9, 2014, to mark the 50 th  anniversary of the band’s historic debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.

" Hey Bulldog " is a song by the Beatles which first appeared on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack album in 1969. Written primarily by John Lennon (credited to Lennon–McCartney ), and finished in the studio by Lennon and McCartney, the song was recorded during the filming of the " Lady Madonna " promotional video, and like "Lady Madonna" is one of the few Beatles' songs to revolve around a piano riff .

With the first CD releases of their albums, the Beatles' core catalogue was harmonised worldwide to encompass their original UK studio albums released in 1963–1970, the 1967 US Magical Mystery Tour LP and the Past Masters compilation, the latter two of which include the recordings released in 1962–1970 that are not present on the UK albums (mainly non-album singles and B-sides ). However, since then, other past releases have been reissued in digital formats.

The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960 and one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. From 1962 the group consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals). Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, the group later worked in many genres ranging from folk rock to psychedelic pop, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. The nature of their enormous popularity, which first emerged as the "Beatlemania" fad, transformed as their songwriting grew in sophistication. The group came to be perceived as the embodiment of progressive ideals, seeing their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.

With an early five-piece line-up of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe (bass) and Pete Best (drums), The Beatles built their reputation in Liverpool and Hamburg clubs over a three-year period from 1960. Sutcliffe left the group in 1961, and Best was replaced by Starr the following year. Moulded into a professional outfit by music store owner Brian Epstein after he offered to act as the group's manager, and with their musical potential enhanced by the hands-on creativity of producer George Martin, The Beatles achieved UK mainstream success in late 1962 with their first single, "Love Me Do". Gaining international popularity over the course of the next year, they toured extensively until 1966, then retreated to the recording studio until their breakup in 1970. Each then found success in an independent musical career. McCartney and Starr remain active; Lennon was shot and killed in 1980, and Harrison died of cancer in 2001.

So let's put it this way. Let It Be is the final Beatles album, not Abbey Road . . but only if it's a Beatles album. Can you argue that Let It Be is a Beatles album, yet not the Beatles' final album? No, not really, because it includes a tiny amount of music they made in 1970. So here's my reluctant conclusion, at least as of today. I like Abbey Road better. Sentimentally, for me, it's the one I think of as the end. However, unfortunately, Let It Be is the last Beatles album. I would love it if you could change my mind about that.
