The Beatles – Mr. Moonlight

Leave a comment

Counting down the 10 WORST BEATLES SONGS – “Mr. Moonlight,” closing out side one of BEATLES ’65, was the goofiest tune we’d ever heard from the Beatles. It doesn’t quite make sense as a pop song. The rhythm is wrong for dancing, the shift from shout to shoobie-doo is jarring, the hook is lousy, and their totally deadpan delivery does not sell it. The original by Dr. Feelgood & The Interns in 1962 failed to crack the Top 40, and the song would be languishing in utter obscurity if the Beatles hadn’t released their cover version in December 1964. The song still languishes in relatively deep and well deserved obscurity even so. You have to wonder — what were they thinking?
