All you need is a love of Paul, John, George and Ringo to come together with all the lonely people of Brooklyn to enjoy Union Hall’s Beatles Sing-Along.

Union Hall loves sing-alongs and you know that can’t be bad. Events producer Michael Austin says they’ve done sing-alongs dedicated to boy bands, ’90s summer jams, Michael Jackson, love power ballads and they even held a Bowie/Queen mash-up night.

“I’ve been doing sing-alongs just about once a month at Union Hall for over three years now, so [we’ve held] somewhere over 30,” said Austin.

The song selections will be taken from Beatles music videos, movie clips and television performances. Speaking words of wisdom, Austin chose the Beatles because of how universally loved the band is. This is a Beatles sing-along for fans looking for an opportunity to relax and enjoy songs always on their minds.

“We do a lot of Sing-Alongs that are really crazy parties and I wanted to do one that was a bit more low key but had songs that people would still be psyched to sing along to,” said Austin. “‘Hey Jude’ and ‘Give Peace a Chance,’ for example, both utilized crowds singing along with them in the videos they made of the songs so I thought it’d be really special to try and recreate that live.”

Nothing will change your world quite like showing off your Beatles knowledge in the trivia contest or singing and dancing around in the Fab Four costume contest. Prizes include free drinks, tickets to future shows at Union Hall or the Bell House and even Beatles memorabilia, all things you’ve probably got to get into your life. Austin said that so far they have things like Beatles buttons, an album and a Christmas tree ornament.

Austin said he expects anywhere between 70 and 100 people to just do what they please and come to the sing-along.

Everyone knows you’ve been working like a dog. Take a break on Sunday, June 23 if you can work it out and all your troubles will seem so far away as you sing along to some Beatles tunes and down plenty of Beatles-inspired drinks without going across the universe or all the way to Strawberry Fields.

Beatles Sing-Along at Union Hall [702 Union St. at Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 638–4400, www.unionhallny.com]. June 23, 8 pm, $8
