Make Your Week

10 Apr

The Weeklings are known for their British Invasion, Beatles like sound, and in fact have covered one Beatles song that was never released by the band itself called “I’m in Love” made famous in the 60s by The Fourmost.

The Fourmost version has a bit of a surf rock feeling to it, while The Weeklings really put that retro Beatles vibe to it slowing the tempo down quite a bunch and adding jangling guitars and handclaps.

When the Fourmost sing the song it is almost unrecognizable as something the Beatles could have written, but with this modern version, with a new arrangement, it is almost impossible not to hear the Beatles influence on this track.

Those who are familiar with the original version may need to take some time to get used to The Weeklings version, but both interpretations of the track are unique and wonderful in their own way.

The Fourmost really made it their own, but even with turning it into a more Beatles sounding tune, The Weeklings not only get to pay homage to the legendary band, but they get to imagine what the song would have sounded like if The Beatles had ever decided to release it as a single on their own.

Fun, and full of throwback feelings, “I’m In Love” is a great song plain and simple no matter who is singing it.
