8:00 AM on 07.21.2009

We’ve known for a while that The Beatles: Rock Band will feature 45 of the legendary band’s songs on the game disc, but at E3, Harmonix -- those dirty, dirty teases -- chose to only tell us about ten of them. They’re continuing to drip-feed us information; today, they revealed 15 more tracks:

  • “Twist And Shout”
  • “Do You Want To Know A Secret”
  • “Can’t Buy Me Love”
  • “I Wanna Be Your Man”
  • “Eight Days A Week”
  • “Paperback Writer”
  • “And Your Bird Can Sing”
  • “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”
  • “With A Little Help From My Friends”
  • “Within You Without You”/“Tomorrow Never Knows” (from 2006’s remix album, Love)
  • “Yellow Submarine”
  • “Revolution”
  • “Birthday”
  • “Dig A Pony”
  • “I’ve Got A Feeling”

As a ridiculously huge Beatles fan, I’m happy to see all of those songs -- but personally, I’m most excited about “Twist and Shout,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Paperback Writer,” “And Your Bird Can Sing,” “Birthday,” and “I’ve Got A Feeling.” Those songs are going to be so much fun to sing with the game’s two- and three-part harmonies! You can see some of the 15 new songs in action below the fold in a brand-new trailer, as well as twenty new screenshots. Man, I just cannot wait until 09.09.09!

Be sure to check back in twenty minutes, when I’ll post impressions of my time with these 15 tracks in the game’s vocal trainer mode!

To recap, here are the 25 songs that are currently confirmed for The Beatles: Rock Band:

  • “I Saw Her Standing There”
