I think Crippled Inside is quite Beatle-esque. It's cool trying to imagine Paul's voice harmonizing. Like on the part "You only got one, and a dog's life ain't fun, momma take a look outside". And on this part: "One thing you can't hide, is when you're crippled inside."

Many of the songs off of the Ringo album sound Beatley too. For obvious reasons I guess. Hah. George's Love Comes to Everyone and Blow Away could be cool as Beatles songs as well.

And several times I've wondered how Band on the Run would be if John had been part of writing it. Also, that'd be cool if the Beatles did an old rock 'n' roll album, like the one John did and Paul's Run Devil Run. Combining the two would be cool.

But Spectre makes it magnificent with a real soaring finale.
Maybe George Martin could have done the same - I hold him in the highest regard. I don't think Spectre could have made I Am The Walrus or Rain, where all the sounds distort into one to make that glourious swirl. And Martin had a real soft touch with arrangements - take the closing of Hey Jude, where a lesser man would have lain it on. But Martin does just enough, never more, to get the effect he wants. But Spectre does that wall of sound thing like no other - he can have so much going on but if you listen you can hear everything that's in there. And he manages to make so much space. Yes I have a hard on for Spectre. And George Martin. In the most histories of The Beatles, and music in general, producers tend to be mentioned as an after thought, or at best the icing on the cake. I think a true story would place them much higher in the hierachy.

I have to agree. Spector was a one trick pony but he did that trick very well. Beyond the wall of sound, however,  his productions sound sparse and bland.

I would've hoped that had the Beatles continued, they would've stuck with Martin/Emerick/Scott, et al.

Lot of interesting song choices, I enjoyed reading them. This thread also had me re-imagining almost all the solo work as Beatles songs...I could see it happening especially has John started mellowing out. Although I am sure he'd probably put his foot down on Silly Love Songs. "Save it for the solo album, Paulie!"
"Someone told me a few minutes ago they saw John walking on the street once wearing a button saying "I Love Paul." And this girl said she asked him, "Why are you wearing a button that says ' I Love Paul'? He said "Because I love Paul."
