And there isn’t any guilty pleasure better than a Beatles cover (yes, I even like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – can’t miss Aerosmith doing “Come Together” and Steve Martin singing “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”). There’s a new movie musical using Beatles songs. Will it be be any good? I don’t know, but here are some clips from the movie. Personally, I really want to see Eddie Izzard doing “For the Benefit of Mr.Kite”.
