Comment:

This was made for a friend, who specified "Beatles-like pop." Not wanting to bore myself too much, I used the tracks on "Beatles 1" as a template: each track, in order (except for the last three - bonus tracks), parallels some aspect of the corresponding Beatles track: tempo, mood, some instrumental sound, lyrics...or some vague something or other.

Excellent. The stuff I'm familiar with is wonderful (XTC, Loud Family, Sloan). Liz Phair supposedly did something similar with the Rolling Stones'"Exile On Main Street" for her album "Exile In Guyville."

I thought Klaatu was the Beatles! Seriously...nice job -- and done without Oasis (nothing against the Gallaghers, but you could've made a whole mix this way with their music).
