If I Had to Pick the Songs in Beatles: Rock Band

The Beatles: Rock Band is set to come out September 9, 2009 and Beatle fans are getting excited. So far we know of ten songs which will be in the game. But what other ones will be included? I decided to make a list of what I want to see. By the time I finished it was clear that Harmonix, the game's creators, have a HUGE task ahead of them. Just on my made up list I left off about ten songs I absolutely love.




First, some ground rules. My list is limited to 45 songs because the game is (though I stretched the rules at the end). The songs and venues we already know are in the game I included (they are in bold). For the group of songs that I think should make use of soundscapes, I just wrote "soundscapes" for the venue.

Then when we wake up in the morning we'll realize, collectively as a nation, that Sean Hannity has left and our wallet with all our credit cards in it is missing. He is a con-artist and his show is just an elaborate plot to steal our credit cards.
Crunchy peanut butter was invented by lazy peanut butter makers. They just quit half-way through the peanut butter creating process and push the product off on an unsuspecting public. Unacceptable.
