MP3 of the Day (and more!) #811: Arctic Monkeys

I’m a big Beatles fan but even I am getting sick of all this 50th anniversary stuff about the Fab Four’s first visit to American shores and their first American television appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Initially, I would have thought Arctic Monkeys taking this momentous Fabs’ anniversary and playing a cover of one of their songs was a mere publicity stunt. However, when you listen to Alex Turner and co.’s rendering of ‘All My Loving’ – incidentally, one of the songs that the Beatles played on that Ed Sullivan broadcast – at their recent sold out show at New York’s venerated Madison Square Garden, they gave the classic track their own edge by slowly it down massively. Listen to and download the live mp3 from Stereogum here.

As for the ‘more’ aspect of this post, for a little more tangentially related content, Arctic Monkeys performed on the Late Show with David Letterman last month, in the same location that the Beatles did 50 years ago, now dubbed the Ed Sullivan Theater. This live version of ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ is as sneery and swaggery as you might expect. Watch it below.
