Is it possible to link from the Beatles to any other band or artist in the world in only five steps? There is only one way to find out. This one links from the Beatles to Howard Carpendale in five simple steps.
1. Beatles – Blackbird
This Beatles track was included on their 1968 album The Beatles (also known as the White Album), although credited to the Beatles every single part on the song is played solely by Paul McCartney, who later went on to write the song Live And Let Die which was used as a Bond theme.
2. Garbage – The World Is Not Enough
Some people might well say that Garbage was quite the apt name for the band chosen to perform the theme song to the Bond film The World Is Not Enough. Anyroads, there is another music star who appears in that film – the character of Bullion was played by Goldie.
3. Goldie – Believe
Goldie had a hit with this song in the UK charts in April 1998 when it hit a peak of number 36. The following year he was ‘acting’ in a Bond film. Anyway, the song title Believe seems to be quite a popular one, as this song shares its title with the following song.
4. Elton John – Believe
This Elton John track was released in the mid 1990’s and became just another top 20 hit, reaching a peak of number 15 in March 1995 and spending a total of 4 weeks in the top 40. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Elton John has covered, and plenty of his songs that others have covered – like the following song.
5. Howard Carpendale – Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
(No video on YouTube!)
The Howard Carpendale cover version of the Elton John song Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word can be found on the 2004 album Das Finale – Live.
