Episode 149: Richard Curtis & Danny Boyle On The Beatles

Jul 05, 06:00 PM
Edith had such fun recording our latest episode of Soundtracking - given that it's with two of the most friendly, eloquent and enthusiastic gentlemen in the business (not to mention talented).

Writer Richard Curtis and director Danny Boyle have teamed up for the romantic comedy, Yesterday. Starring Himesh Patel, Lily James, Ed Sheeran and Kate McKinnon, Yesterday tells the story of struggling musician who, after an accident, finds himself the only person who remembers The Beatles. Naturally, he seizes this opportunity and becomes famous taking credit for writing and performing their songs.

Despite the offbeat premise, it really does work, and also gives us the perfect excuse to play loads of the Fab Four's music.
