Beady Eye – Beatles and Stones ——— Songs that reference The Beatles

Well, this reference is pretty obvious…

I’m gonna stand the test of time Like Beatles and Stones

Beady Eye was a band formed by  Liam Gallagher of Oasis with former members of Oasis. This song was written by Liam Gallagher and it was on the Different Gear, Still Speeding album released in 2011.

They recycled the Who’s My Generation riff to good effect. They defiantly have that mid-sixties mod thing going on.

Beady Eye released two albums. Different Gear, Still Speeding (#3 UK) in 2011 and BE (#2 UK) in 2013. In 2014 Beady Eye broke up because of the failure to gain popularity in the US according to Liam Gallagher.

Beatles and Stones

Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
I’m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

Well it freaks them mama
I’m not doin’ what I’m told
Well it freaks them mama
You know I can’t be bought and sold
I’m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

I’m on my way home, just get back to what’s mine
And when I get home, well I’ll be alright

Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
I’m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

I’m on my way home, just get back to what’s mine
And when I get home, well I’ll be alright

What’s that you say?
Get out the way!

Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
I’m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

Well it freaks them mama

I’m not doin’ what I’m told
Well it freaks them mama
You know I can’t be bought and sold
I’m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

I’m on my way home, just get back to what’s mine
And when I get home, well I’ll be alright
Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
I’m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

I’m on my way home, just get back to what’s mine
And when I get home, well I’ll be alright

What’s that you say?
Get out the way!

    1. I know… again I’m big in the “sound” of a record… I like what I’ve heard off the album. It does have a sixties sound
