Welcome to our new feature, PJ Lifestyle Music At Midnight. With this feature we get to play DJ and share some of our favorite music. Hopefully PJ Lifestyle readers will gain some new favorite songs and artists as a result.

On February 9, 1964, the Beatles first performed on The Ed Sullivan Show. Music changed forever with the Beatles’ debut. In honor of the 50th anniversary, PJ Lifestyle Music At Midnight presents a week of great Beatles covers.

Tonight, we’ll begin with a cover of a tune the Beatles performed on The Ed Sullivan Show. Al Green recorded his Green Is Blues album in 1969, but his cover of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” didn’t appear on it until the special edition was released 40 years later.

Probably my favorite Beatles coverage is Joe Goldmark's CD 'Steelin' The Beatles'.

All instrumental. Mostly a Country vibe. Featuring Joe on Steel Guitar. It's a real secret gem.

Wilson Pickett's 1969 version of "Hey Jude" is absolutely definitive!

"...PJ Lifestyle Music At Midnight presents a week of great Beatles covers."

Almost looking forward to any acknowledged covers found in the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band movie. Despite some profoundly awful renditions (e.g., Donald Pleasence's "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"), others were quite nice (Aerosmith's "Come Together", EWF's "Got To Get You Into My Life", Billy Preston's "Get Back") or at least memorably novel (Steve Martin's "Maxwell's Silver Hammer")

Very good, I like Al Green.

As a suggestion, reference Chet Atkins' album, "Picks on the Beatles" (1966).
