Ghost of Christmas Pastiche: The Beatles

Michael Hall echoes the mid-’60s Fab 4 with “Fab 4 Christmas.”

Cover band The Rubber Band makes a living being The Beatles. They have a Christmas album Xmas! The Beatmas!

Their “Last Christmas” isn’t too bad, opening as it does with the ‘Mr. Postman’ intro. (Probably got the idea from The Ventures’ Christmas album from 1965 featuring “Sleigh Ride” with one of their own numbers morphing into a rocking interp of the moldy traditional. Moderne!)

Let’s feature “A Bairn is Born in Beatlehome” as an epic (minute and a half) tribute to the boys. It’s not terribly Christmassy, but hope you enjoyed the audition.
