Everybody’s Got Something to Hide is an astounding, dazzling romp through the songbook of Lennon and Mccartney.
With the talents of Libby O’Donovan, Melissa Langton and Mark Jones this Beatles cover show is a surefire winner.
O’Donovan, Langton and Jones dazzle in the Spiegeltent, their inspirational arrangements and powerful voices proving that covers can sometimes outshine the originals. In this case the talents of Lennon and Mccartney are brought to life, and more.
The haunting ballads are beautifully handled with “She’s Leaving home” and “Let it Be” highlights.
O’Donovan’s “Oh! Darling” is a showstopper. This pint-sized diva has a strong following in Adelaide for good reason.
The trio’s jam-packed medley is also filled with fun as they wisely avoid all traces of “Mull of Kintyre” favouring instead a tongue in cheek yodeling version of “Obladi oblada”.
The title song "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey" is written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon/McCartney) and performed by The Beatles on their 1968 double-disc album.
The songwriting partnership of John Lennon and Paul McCartney is one of the best known, appealing to fans across generations. Who hasn’t bought a Beatles record, tape or CD?
The original compositions of the Beatles, the formidable talents of this trio and the magic of Spiegeltent in the Garden of Unearthly Delights are a potent combination. Make sure you have a ticket to ride to this show!
