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 Mills Brothers in five simple steps.
1. Beatles – Let It Be
Taken from the album of the same name, Let It Be was the last UK single released by the Beatles, reaching a peak of number 2 in March 1970 (although it did reach number 1 in the US). After the split of the Beatles all four members launched solo careers!
2. Paul McCartney – Another Day
The song Another Day was the first solo chart hit in the UK for ex-Beatles Paul McCartney, reaching a peak of number 2 in February 1971. One month previous one ex-Beatles was riding high at number one in the charts.
3. George Harrison – My Sweet Lord
Of the four ex-Beatles, it was George Harrison who got his solo career proper off to the best start (as the early John Lennon offerings came under the name of the Plastic Ono Band). The song My Sweet Lord raced to the number one spot in the UK in January 1971 and also reached the top spot in the US.
4. Ringo Starr – It Don’t Come Easy
The debut chart hit in the UK for Ringo Starr, and the last of the debut solo hits for an ex-Beatle, came in April 1971 when It Don’t Come Easy hit a peak of number 4. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Ringo Starr has covered, and plenty of his songs that others have covered – like the following song.
5. Mills Brothers – You Always Hurt The One You Love
The Mills Brothers song You Always Hurt The One You Love was covered by Ringo Starr on his album Sentimental Journey.
