Do you Think a band with 3 1/2 strong vocalist good pull this song off? I think it may be a good dance tune.

What could make it a good medley?

You can *certainly* pull it off. The tune has some interesting meter changes, so everyone really needs to be on top of things to keep it danceable. One possible idea for a medley in E:

· “Magical Mystery Tour” (1967)
· “The Ballad of John and Yoko” (1969)
· “I Saw Her Standing There” (1963)

Octopus Garden is in E also (think "polka" when playing it). A fun thing to do during the guitar solo is have a cocktail glass nearby with water/ice and a straw and use it near a mic for the bubbles sound. People will love it.

Another one, if you have the vocals, is Oh Darlin' (good luck on that one;).

We've done both and they're received rather well.

Played with a guy decades ago that could just nail the vocal on "Oh Darlin". Talking scarey good here. I lost track of him in the late 70s, but would love to repeat those memories.
