It comes on automatically with this page. Everything seems to indicate it a Beatles song. Sounds like their style. My wife and I don't recognize it. I really like it and could see doing it.

That's very cool. And thanks for the link to the info on that Taike. I didn't know that song but it certainly has that Beatles signature melody.

My pleasure!

I'm amazed that this song seems to be unknown in the US. It rocketed to number one on about all the major hit parades in Europe and even several in Asia.

I'm a huge Beatles fan, and when they said they were going to release a "new" Beatles hit with posthumous tracks ... well, we were all excited. Unfortunately, here in the US .. no one I know was even mildly impressed with the new song.
I'm glad it had some success around the world, but in the US pop charts it was a dud.

Actually the Beatles released 2 songs for the Beatles Anthology.
The second song is called :"Real Love"

I like it better than the first one.

Bump to top in case some of you missed the second song...

The post went fast to the bottom and could have been easily missed.
