This Aerovons/Beatles coincidence-arama will stop eventually, but not yet. Not by a long shot.

This one is a two-for-one deal, where The Aerovons steal from two different Beatles songs.

Firstly, this “coincidence” involves pilfering a lyrical idea from The Beatles. You know in the chorus of “Getter Better“, when Paul sings “It’s getting better all the time”, and John responds with “It can’t get no worse”? Well…

The Aerovons – “Everything’s Alright” (1969) (excerpt 1)

Link

The Beatles – “Getting Better (1967) (excerpt)

Link

Next, I’d like you to have a listen to the handclaps…

The Aerovons – “Everything’s Alright” (1969) (excerpt 2)

Link

Where have you heard them before? Why, in a Beatles song of course…

The Beatles – “Eight Days A Week (1964) (excerpt)

Link

Here are the full versions:

The Aerovons – “Everything’s Alright” (1969)

The Beatles – “Getting Better (1967)

Next in our series of coincidences involving The Beatles and thieving upstarts The Aerovons is one that’s so egregiously obvious that it was the one that tipped me over the edge into “Right, that’s it – I have to let people know how much The Aerovons ripped off The Beatles! Aaaargh!”.

The Aerovons – “Say Georgia” (1969) (excerpt)

The Beatles – “Oh! Darling (1969) (excerpt)
