Till There Was You – New Video!

​Today we are sharing with you a cover of one of our favourite non-Beatles Beatles songs! "Till There Was You" - From the musical “The Music Man”, covered by the Beatles back in ‘63.

We can’t think of many songs with a melody sweeter than this one.

It's dedicated to our friend and long-time supporter "Steve from Miami", who we lost this Winter. It was one of his favourite songs, and today would be his Birthday ♥


We often reminisce about the time when we "caught the Beatle bug" in our early teens and would experience our very own Beatlemania together with our best friend from high school.

When the three of us first saw the video of the Beatles doing this song for the Royal Variety Performance we just about lost our minds and immediately fell in love with it - Paul surely knew what he was doing with all that cute head bobbing!

For several weeks to follow we would sing this song to ... no, AT anyone who would listen. During gym class, in the locker rooms (great acoustics!), at the bus stop and even in the tram on the way back from school. We couldn't get the pretty melody (that includes George's stunning solo) out of our heads.

Our guitar teacher at the time even transcribed the guitar parts for us although they were a little too advanced for us at the time. We still tried!

Ten years later, and after learning that it was one of Steve's favourite songs too, we want to try it again.

We hope you'll enjoy the song and video. Let us know if you have any memories connected to the song yourself!

Much love to you all,
Mona & Lisa

When my daughter was little I sang this as a lullaby to help her get to sleep along with Golden Slumber, Over the Rainbow, All the Pretty Horses and even The Carpenter’s Superstar. Good memories.

Love your harmonies on this classic song! Such talent with drums, rhythm and lead guitars, and tight vocals. You really nailed the George solo, Lisa. Your adoration of this music shines through! Well done, looking forward to more.

It was one of my favourite songs sung by Peggy Lee. I think it was her version that inspired Paul to record it

Last week I suddenly lost a dear friend who I had grown up with, played music with and through the years shared over long distance our love of music. But as hard as it was to lose my old buddy, a few weeks before he left this world he unknowingly gave me a gift to use to get me through the hard times as well as to use to celebrate the good times. That gift was to tell me about a duo that he had found on YouTube that played the music from our rock band days. That gift was the music of the MonaLisa Twins. We talked about your ‘Till There Was You’ release during our last conversation. It was a favorite that we use to play in the band. Your music is very healing and uplifting. Please keep making great music.
