Return of O.W.N. - Week 5 = "Hold Me Tight"

This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles". Don't know why they decided to name themselves after a bunch of bugs but maybe Papa Roach knows... This is a classic Beatles number but has only been parodied twice so far on Amiright.com (Maybe we'll find out why) (Comments & Parodies)

KT Tunstall
Tunstall is her real surname and "KT" is derived from her first name Kate. It is not short for anything. According to her, "Kate makes me think of a buxom lass baking bread for her man working in the fields, I have no problem with that, but it is not really how I pictured being a rock star''.
