Just a quick post about some new DLC (downloadable content) for The Beatles: Rock Band.

The Beatles outside Abbey Road Studios

Abbey Road (1969), The Beatles’ second to last album, was made available for download on the Playstation Network, Xbox Live, and the Wii music store on Tuesday, Oct. 20. This supplement to the game includes all of the songs from Abbey Road that weren’t in the original setlist (which included Come Together, Something, Octopus’s Garden, I Want You (She’s So Heavy), Here Comes The Sun, and The End)

Downloading the pack will cost you $16.98 as a whole, or $2.00 per song. Here is a list of the new songs that are available:

  1. Maxwell’s Silver Hammer
  2. Oh! Darling
  3. Because
  4. You Never Give Me Your Money
  5. Sun King / Mean Mr. Mustard
  6. Polythene Pam / She Came in Through the Bathroom Window
  7. Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight / The End
  8. Her Majesty (the hidden track)
  9. Abbey Road Medley

The Abbey Road Medley encompasses songs 4-8 on the list above, which were short and sometimes unfinished songs that were edited into a single 16-minute mix. In The Beatles: Rock Band, this track allows you to play the songs back to back as they were recorded, but it is only available when you purchase the full track pack.

If I could figure out how to connect to Xbox Live from my dorm room, I wouldn’t hesitate to download this monumental album. For now, take a look at the beautiful visuals in the first half of the medley:

    It’s like a nightly ritual at my house for my dad and sister to jam out to the Beatles via Rock Band. I’ll have to let them know about the supplement; I’m sure they’ll be stoked. Thanks for posting!
