A creation of Dutch producer Jaap Eggermont, it was inspired by a bootleg remix of sixties songs of the early 1980s. Eggermont hired Bas Muys, Hans Vermeuien and Okkie Huysdens to sing John Lennon, George Harrison and Paul McCartney's voices.

Thus the Stars On 45 Beatles Medley was born.

You can boogie like disco, love that disco sound
Turn up the volume and move it all around
But don't, don't, don't, don't, don't forget
Don't, don't, don't, don't, don't forget

The Stars on '45 keep on turning in your mind
Like "We Can Work it Out"
Remember "Twist and Shout"
You still don't "Tell Me Why" and "No Reply"

After the huge success of the medley, they recorded several other medleys of ABBA, Stevie Wonder and famous songs of the 60's.

Songs covered, a bar or two at a time:

You know you're a child of the 80's if... you remember the words to the Stars On 45 Beatles Medley
