Mixed & written in August 2010.
August 17 of 1960 is often referred to as the birthday of The Beatles because they played their first show in Hamburg where their career kicked off. As everywhere in the world, the Fab Four were big in Brazil and a lot of bands appeared that simply covered their songs and that of other groups of that time. They often translated the lyrics into portuguese and the most curious are maybe The Brazilian Beatles, see video below. To celebrate the 50th anniversary I selected and mixed some rather reinterpretations than mere cover versions by Brazilian artists.
