      Came across this video again... Ignore the conspiracy theory about the parallel universel (totally fabricated by someone for entertainment value... and why would an advanced technological society not be able to advance beyond casette tapes!  ) ... but can't help wondering if the Beatles music would have sounded like this if they hadn't split up.  Or perhaps their own songs would have survived as separate tracks.     I like their compositions as solo artists just as much as I appreciate the Beatles music!

      Whoever did this mashup did a pretty good edit, but the rest of their parallel universe story is... as Paul would say "totally cr*p."  Anyway, just wondering if the Beatles would have sounded like this, had they stayed together.   I'm sure they would have sounded much better than what's on the video!

        Had the Beatles taken a few years off after Let It Be, made a couple of solo albums each and then got back into the studio in 1973, they would probably have released an album with the following tracklisting:

        Side A: Band On The Run / Mind Games / Jet / One Day At A Time / Give Me Love / Bluebird / Photograph.

        Side B: Jet / Out The Blue / Don't Let Me Wait Too Long / Let Me Roll It / You Are Here / Tight As / Helen Wheels.

        Then again, they might have made Dark Side Of The Moon before the Floyd did !!

          Thanks, Kestrel, I think your theory of them going back to the studio (after a few years off) seems right.   I think George Harrison would have had a few more tracks on the album than the few he was given previously.

          Then again, they might have made Dark Side Of The Moon before the Floyd did !! 

          I was thinking they'd have gone in the direction of Frank Zappa... and sound like the  opening screams of The Return of the Son of Monster Magnet

          (a journalist who  listened to  the Beatles "Carnival of Light" at Paul's house a few years ago said that Zappa track is the closest thing to  what Carnival of Light sounds like...)
