This review is from: The Rutles (Audio CD)
This is a brilliant spoof parody of The Beatles. The genius behind it is Neil Innes. The Rutles comes from a one off film by Eric Idle called the Rutles that told the story of the band that looked like the Beatles. The best thing about this film is the music. Without a doubt this is the element that makes it all work. The music is original to the Rutles. I mean yes it is a parody of Beatles songs with contributions such as "hold my hand" and "Cheese and Onion", but the tunes and words are all brilliant originals by Neil Innes. There was a UK hit single from this project this was "I must be in love". This is a great example. It isn't a Beatles tune but it sounds like one, and it uses the same sort of harmonies that the Beatles used in their "Love me do", "Cant buy me love", and "she love you" era.
It makes a great music project and the songs sound like you have known them all your life. The music is very entertaining.
