We Call This Music Fab.com proudly presents the annual posting of our holiday special, "Christmas With the Fabs," which combines humor and music in what we hope is the tradition of the Beatles' Christmas Records from the 1960s.
On December 19th, Orchestra London's Jeans and Classics Band as well as the Red Hot Choir performed A Very Beatles Christmas, a special concert event that featured vocalist Jean Meilleur. They performed the entire Sgt. Pepper album as well as a number of Beatles-related Christmas songs, including John's "Happy Christmas (War is Over)". Fittingly the conductor for the evening was Jeff Christmas.
In a recent interview with The Irish Sun, Paul McCartney discussed his reasons for appearing on the television series X Factor. "At first," said Paul, "when we talked about going on X Factor, it was a bit of a worry, I must say. It was, like, 'People say we shouldn't do that. They say you are too big for a show like that. It'll ruin your reputation,' and I thought about it. But then I'm always getting told that: 'Don't go to perform in Israel,' or 'You can't do this or that.' Then if someone tells me not to do it, I want to do it more. They said, 'Don't do X Factor' and I said, 'Wait a minute, let's check it out.' I started asking people in the street. They all said, 'Oh, do that, it's great.' I'm a fan of normal people and normal people usually get it right." The episode featuring Paul was viewed by over 20 million people.
