The Beatles and Rock Band or Guitar Hero?

With the recent rumours that Beatles representatives met with both the makers of Rock Band and Guitar Hero to discuss the possibility of a Beatles-themed game, I’ve been more than a little excited at the prospects of rocking out to these tunes. (See more coverage at Wired and the original FT article)

Whatever the outcome, it could be a deciding factor in what console (if any) I decide to buy. I’m already feeling the pain of no DLC for the Wii version of Rock Band, which is putting doubts into my mind as to whether I should have bought the Wii version.

With that said, here’s a list of the top 10 songs (in no particular order) I’d like to see in any Beatles-themed game or available for DLC for an existing game like Rock Band. (Top 10 list idea shamelessly taken from the Wired article and others)

  1. Rain
  2. One After 909
  3. Revolution 1
  4. Day Tripper
  5. Here Comes The Sun
  6. Drive My Car
  7. What You’re Doing
  8. I Wanna Be Your Man
  9. A Hard Day’s Night
  10. Helter Skelter

Those would provide a good all-around experience for all the instruments in a Rock Band-like game. Actually, those are just the first 10 that came to mind while browsing through my play list. I actually just want all of the Beatles songs to be released for Rock Band DLC, then I’ll finally be able to justify a PS3 purchase…
