Please Please Me (Beatles Cover Challenge)

Here it is! My covers of The Beatles debut album, Please Please Me. So I'm two days past my self-imposed deadline (I picked March 22 because that was the date in 1963 that the album was first released) but I did the best I could, learning a lot of new material in just a few weeks! Some are straight-forward, some are wacky, and some feature special guests! For those of you who really know this album, you'll notice a few tracks missing. That's because this first album of theirs contained quite a few covers and I chose to only record the Beatles' original work. I hope you enjoy :) Feel free to comment on what you liked (or didn't!)

"I Saw Her Standing There"

"There's A Place"

  1. I just binged watched it twice - so fun! I like how you mixed it up with different styles - oh my gosh classical Do You Want To Know a Secret (what??) and the haunting Love Me Do. I loved watching your students sing with you, just makes me smile! I'd have to say my favorite is There's a Place - I've never heard that and I thought I'd heard them all. It's a happy song, and I like your nod to West Side Story :) Thank you for the entertainment!
