Welcome to all you CD Babies!

Hey! If you're a visitor from the CD Baby newsletter you're very welcome. Sit down and let me make you a fine cup of english tea.

What you've stumbled upon is one man's foolishly ambitious project to blog his way through all 211 Beatles songs, pull 'em apart to see what makes 'em tick and then put together all the bits into new songs.

I'm on song 38 so far.

I know, epic FAIL.

But I am learning a massive amount already and I haven't even got to the best stuff yet.

I've been writing songs for 25 years but last year I realised that I've been trying to learn about writing simple pop songs from Beethoven, Gershwin, Phillip Glass, Steve Vai & Burt Bacharach instead of studying the greatest pop group of all time.

So that's what I'm here for.

It's a long and winding road and if you think you might learn something by joining me, or just want to encourage me to keep going (Maxwell's Silver Hammer's coming up soon and I think I need a hug) then it would be jolly good if you'd subscribe, follow me, tweet me, share me, leave a comment, send me chocolates, or adopt a Walrus in my name - anything...


  1. Hi Matt... I did follow your link from CD Baby to here last week (or the week before)... Very cool blog. I have you subscribed now through my google reader account. Love the be-atletudes and tickets to write... Looking forward to you continuing on your quest. Keep up the good work.

  2. Cool Randy - great to have you on board!
