Fab Fighters: The Beatles Vs. Zombies

Inspired by the audio post on Alan Goldsher’s Paul Is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion, I came to realize that the notion of The Beatles fending off zombies throughout their career lends itself uncommonly well to a Beatles vs. Zombies mixtape. If only in their song titles.

First comes the onset of the zombie plague:

“I’ve Just Seen A Face”
“I’m Looking Through You”

But then, the zombies notice The Beatles:

“Run For Your Life”

So, of course, they run and fortify inside of a decrepit recording studio/Ringo’s house/etc:

“You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away”
“Fixing A Hole”

The zombies find them anyway, as zombies do, and an ill-prepared pop group suffers its first gruesome casualty:

“She Came In Through The Bathroom Window”
“I’m Down”
“Here, There and Everywhere”

The zombies never stop hunting them, but the battle-hardened Beatles won’t be taken by surprise again:

“I’m So Tired”
“Happiness Is A Warm Gun”
“I’ll Get You”
“Helter Skelter”

Of course, at some point, one side has to run out of bodies:

“The End”

(Bonus track: “Yesterday.” Because what would a Beatles mix be without that song?)

Chris Greenland thinks that, in a world full of zombies, John Lennon probably would have been the last to go.
