Harmonix reveals 15 more The Beatles: Rock Band songs

8:00 AM on 07.21.2009 // Samit Sarkar

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”
  • “I Want To Hold Your Hand”
  • “I Feel Fine”
  • “Taxman”
  • “Day Tripper”
  • “Back In The U.S.S.R.”
  • “I Am The Walrus”
  • “Octopus’s Garden”
  • “Here Comes The Sun”
  • “Get Back”
  • “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”

If some weren't aware, Phil/Mike Martin needs some help right now but can't access traditional donation avenues like Paypal on his own. I'm offering to be a middle man. I'm also offering to match 50% moving forward right now. [email protected]

At first I thought it would be fun. Then more ideas came, so I kept adding. More! More! But soon it just became stubbornness. Now, as I stare at 10000 words of meandering loon about a subject I'd almost rather be porn, I must question all my life choices.

Someone on Gamefaqs asking the real questions. How mad would you be if halfway through the Mad Max game he stumbles upon a tribe of kids and the rest of the game is a lighthearted romp?

Really sad that Wes Craven has passed away. He made really fun films.

R.I.P. Wes Craven. I'll always remember you for A Nightmare On Elm Street, Scream and Red Eye. I'll try not to remember you for Music of the Heart.

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.

Been looking for a car to buy today. I swear, I am so sick of my mums voice. "It's too expensive!" "Don't you think it's a little big..." "INSURANCE!" Goddamn woman, chill your beans.
