The Beatles’ version of “Memphis Tennessee”

Song Of The Day

“Long distance information, give me Memphis, Tennessee, help me find the party trying to get in touch with me”… These words, that are sure to be pleasantly and permanently wedged into your mind, signify that one of the great rock n roll classics of all time is about to be played. This classic song, originally written by Chuck Berry, has been covered by a plethora of artists. We are going to take a look at the version played by The Beatles, during their live BBC studio sessions. It is a very unknown Beatles track, which is odd considering it’s the Beatles covering Chuck Berry. Is there a better true rock n roll combo imaginable? You would be hard pressed to find one.

It’s also a great song for a Sunday. So relax and take in this song, one that actually fits the bill of being a “classic”. Those are rare. Please enjoy.
