New York City Buskers Sound Just Like the Beatles

From Matt Whitlock comes a tweet featuring Amiri and Rahiem Taylor, two New York City buskers, singing a spot-on version of The Beatles’ “Eight Days a Week.” Close your eyes and imagine listening to John and Paul.

According to their website, Amiri and Rahiem are twins from Bed Stuy, Brooklyn. And although they grew up “surrounded by hip hop culture and all it’s glory,” they had exposure to pop and funk, and they’ve steadily built up a Beatles repertoire. You can find plenty other Beatles covers by the twins on YouTube. Enjoy.
