Pink – Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Any major music publication will attest that The Beatles are one of the greatest bands the world has ever seen, if not the greatest band. Their career may have ended over 45 years ago, but their music has lived on in culture since then, inspiring films like Across The Universe and theatrical productions like Cirque du Soleil’s Love. Now, The Beatles’ music has found its way into yet another medium – children’s television. Beat Bugs, the Netflix series — the first season of which premieres Aug. 3 — is taking the music of The Beatles and using it to tell kid-friendly stories. But the Beat Bugs aren’t just using the songs themselves, instead, the show has brought in some big talents to cover some of the Beatles classics. The artists on Beat Bugs’ soundtrack are sure to bring some exciting and clever interpretations on the songs we love.
According to the Wall Street Journal, getting the licensing rights for Beat Bugs to use Beatles songs was no easy task for the show’s creators, but an even more difficult task is giving these classic tunes the tribute they deserve. The best Beatles songs are already so well-known and beloved that it takes a lot for a cover to stand-out. Luckily for Beat Bugs, they’ve collected some of the biggest names in pop and rock music to put their spin on the music. Here are the artists you can look forward to hearing on Beat Bugs.
