MORE Silver Laughter LIVE – Cover Songs!

The album that contained the original "All My Loving".

The album that contained the original “Hold Me Tight”.

“Hold Me Tight”

It was amazing to us that very few of the Beatles cover bands chose to do this song. Jon and I thought it was one of the best on the album. On the American album, “I Want To Hold Your Hand” was the big hit, but it was not featured on the British Parlophone album.

Written by Paul, it really rocks with great guitar riffs, harmonies and lyrics. I sang lead on this one with Jon and Ken on backup vocals. As you can hear at the end there is a snippet of “All My Loving” which was the next song in the medley. Cut from the Calgary Beatles Tribute, it almost sounds like it could have been done by the Beatles themselves in the Cavern Club!
