Love Love Love

There's nothing you can do that can't be done. That includes a Beatles mash-up made up entirely of their own music. George Martin and his son went back to re-imagine The Beatles catalog in the context of fruity dancers and high wire acts. Hence, the Love - Cirque Du Soleil project. You've heard about the Vegas act, but in November, you'll be able to bring the music home with you.

News from The Beatles official email list:

"This music was designed for the LOVE show in Las Vegas but in doing so
we've created a new Beatles album" said Sir George. "The Beatles always looked
for other ways of expressing themselves and this is another step forward for

Giles continues, "We took all the Beatles' catalogue from tape, the
original four tracks, eight tracks and two tracks and used this palette of
sounds and music to create a sound bed. What people will be hearing on the album
is a new experience, a way of re-living the whole Beatles musical lifespan in a
very condensed period".

As cheesy as the whole Cirque Du Soleil concept is, I've heard it's incredible. I enjoyed the two "new" tunes from the Anthology releases and the work McCartney did with Super Furry Animals and Youth for the Liverpool Sound Collage so I'm excited to hear this music. We'll never hear new Beatles music again so why not liven it up a bit.
