If the Beatles songs come to Rockband, which one out of all of their songs do you think will be hardest for each instrument (assuming its in the game)?

    For drums and bass: Rain
    For guitar: While My Guitar Gently Weeps
    For singing: Let It Be

    The End would be hard for all the instruments, but they wouldn't put that in there cuz it's short and there's hardly any singing...They might if they put it with one of the other songs in the medley.
    I would agree with this.

    But I still have to say Yer Blues would be major fun on drums.

    I would vote for "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey." Not only is the name long, but it's challenging rhythmically and Lennon's vocals are over the place.

    Vocals: Hey Jude (you'd have to match the runs at the end)
    Drums: The End
    Guitar: While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    The songs aren't really about difficulty... but Revolution might be kinda hard, if they chart the piano solo.

    I don't really care what will be the hardest but the most fun will definitely be either Rain, Come Together, or my personal favorite Beatles drums song "She Said, She Said":

    I'm hoping they put the medley in, it's one of my favourite Beatles' compositions. Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End please.

    "Get Back" off of the 'Love' Cd.

    I don't think this is the hardest but I really hope it's included. I like the drums in the beginning especially.

    Absolutely. That ending to Abbey Road is just incredibly epic. When McCartney ended his 89-90 tour with that, I had goosebumps the whole time. It just HAS to be in there at some point.

    why don't you go listen to their discography and discover for yourself. Don't let us decide for you.
    the reason he is on this forum is so he can talk to other people. if he wanted to decide for himself, he wouldnt have asked. you are an idiot

    Are you serious? You know, Oscar, sometimes you can provide a really good post. Other times, such as this one in particular, you come across as a complete moron.

    He asked which YOU thought would be most difficult, not which one would be the most difficult for him. Good grief.

    As for my answer, I don't listen to the Beatles. If we get them, I only really want Blackbird, Let it Be, and Hey Jude. Everything else is kind of 'meh' and bland to me.

    Edit: Therefore, I don't have the background to you an answer, essentially :P

    First: This is the first mention of beatles I've seen here and HOLY ****ING **** ****S YES.:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    ATTN HARMONIX: LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.LOOOVE YOU. LOOOVE YOU.

    She Said, She Said, off revolver, is my number one pick for a beatles song, after the ENTIRE abbey road medley, from You Never Give Me Your Money through The End. Any one or two songs, especially You Never, would be fun, but the whole medley . . . oh yeah. Especially since it's the last thing on the last beatles album ever recorded, and The End. . . ah yeah. . .

    I think they should release it in a few tiers- start with a McCartney Career pack (Day Tripper, Live and Let Die, Dance Tonight), then a six pack or album (Weren't there rumors of a White Album release a while ago? I'd go Pepper, Magical Mystery, or Revolver), and finally a 20+ song game spanning their entire career, possibly with a couple extras thrown in from related bands similar to GH: Aerosmith. I never supported GH: Aerosmith, or to a slight degree AC/DC, but with the ability to export songs and songs on the caliber of Hey Jude and Helter Skelter sung by the man who made them great (no offense on Johnson's highway to hell) the whole deal is completely different.

    Wow, I'm not sure, but were you the one who wrote it? If so, not funny...at all.

    If not or if so, how dare [whoever it was] bring that piece of **** sound that doesn't even constitute as music into a thread about the greatest band ever.

    And by greatest band, I mean they changed Rock and Roll forever. :D

    I don't know about hardest, but Bungalow Bill has wide ranging vocals. Oh, and Rocky Raccoon would have alternating talkies.

    For guitar how about some of Harrison's stuff like the Inner Light and Within You, With Out You? lolz

    "Norweigian Wood" might be difficult...you'll need to learn sitar and alternate tuning to get through it.

    That was a joke...

    Twist and Shout should be tough if you're in John Lennon's octave...

    there would be no other way to sing it but in his octave, otherwise even if you can sing, you'd hurt the song.

    Wikipedia said:

    The Get Back album was intended for release in July 1969, but its release was pushed back to September to coincide with the planned television special and the theatrical film about the making of the album. In September, the album's release was pushed back to December because the Beatles had just recorded Abbey Road and wanted to release that album instead. By December the album had been shelved.

    Recorded:
    Abbey Road: 22 February 1969 – 20 August 1969
    Let It Be: January 1969, Apple Studios, Savile Row;
    January 1970, March 1970, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
    Let it Be was the final released Beatles album, but Abbey Road was the final recorded beatles album overall (besides the last couple of tracks on let it be).

    And Your Bird Can Sing sounds fun
    Helter Skelter, of course
    WMGGW is a must...there are so many...a lot would be tough on vox, and there are a few that could be surprisingly tough on guitar

    I have the feeling "Back in the USSR" would be up there challenge-wise. Fast drum runs, and if they make you play the rythym when lead guitar isn't up to much, the guitar would have plenty to do. Short though, little under 3mins, so it wouldn't be a wear-out session like some songs.

    I will pass out with ecstasy if I get to play "Helter Skelter", which has been on my wish list since GH1. Such a riotous noise fest. Not crazy challenging for drums, but I imagine it would be fun. Bassist might get tired. I wonder if it would be at least part-talky though, might be hard to pitch-bar the shouted lyrics and keep it fun. The fade out/in fake ending and "blisters on my fingers" are a manditory inclusion.

    "Yer Blues" could be a challenge on vox, depending on the charting, bassists would just love it, a real chance to come out front. Drums are simple but fun with variations.
