A Green and Yellow Submarine: Brazilian Musicians Interpreting the Beatles

Beatles songs sung by Brazilian Artists

As it has been 50 years since the Beatles release of “Love Me Do”, I thought it would be a good time to jump on this train and feature Beatles’ songs interpreted by Brazilian artists. The Beatles had a big influence on Brazilian music. This has been very evident since the Tropicalia musical movement, with Gilberto Gil’s song “Domingo no Parque”. We just love them! We can identify with their irreverence and spontaneity and relate with the sounds of our Northeast region. We can also identify their harmonies and vocals with the baroque tradition from the state of Minas Gerais. The Fab4 songs are part of the repertoire of any Brazilian acoustic guitar player, from beginner level to advance. In this post , you will see a small playlist sung in our own Brazilian way. Scroll down until the end of the page and will also find a few original songs, sung about the Beatles.

Pe.H Moraes and Band – All my loving All My Loving

Milton Nascimento – Norwegian Wood

Ze Ramalho – Dear Prudence

Orchestra Ouro Preto – Eleanor Rigby

Cassia Eller – Blackbird

Jane Duboc: Across the universe

Graveola e o Lixo Polifonico – Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Ageu Marques Hocus Pocus – She’s leaving home

Pato Fu – Live and Let Die

Ok, this is post-Beatles, but “Live and Let Die”, played with musical toys, is very cute.
