Walter Bolin

A 2017 video of Walter Bolin has gone viral for his ability to identify 21 Beatles songs in two minutes. And while most of you can likely do that in less time, you still can’t top Bolin. Then again, we’re going to take a wild stab here and guess that none of you use a car seat. Walter, you see, was two-years-old when he accomplished this feat.

His parents uploaded a video to YouTube on Feb. 10, 2017 with the camera fully trained on Walter during a family outing. As they shuffle through the first few seconds of Beatles favorites, the youngster does his best “Name That Tune” impression by correctly identifying the songs. He occasionally embellishes some of their titles: “Love, Love Me Do,” “She Loves You Yeah Yeah,” “Hard Days’s Night,” and so on.

With each correct answer, his unseen parents heap well-deserved praise on the youngster.

As his father, Eli Bolin, notes on the YouTube clip:

When our son Walter isn’t jamming on the drums to Abbey Road, he’s strumming the uke to Rubber Soul. Walter even asks for “Beatles Bedtime Stories” which are stories we make up about the Beatles coming to our house to ask Walter to join the band and give them ideas for songs. Walter currently claims that he wrote “Day Tripper” and “Paperback Writer,” not Lennon and McCartney. On a recent drive, we flipped through the Beatles’ 1 album, trying to get Walter to name as many Beatles’ songs as he could, as fast as he could. This is what happened.

Fun facts: Right before “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, Walter starts to say “Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand”, which is the little-known German-language version of the song which he is also totally obsessed with. He also calls “I Feel Fine” by his preferred alternate title “Said So.” (As in: “Baby’s good to me, you know/She’s happy as can be, you know/She SAID SO.”)
