The Beatles & My First Born
First off, saw Across the Universe last night; huge disappointment. Great, great idea...executed poorly. The main actor's voice was terrific but I just had to cringe at some of the other renditions. Bono's take on "I Am The Walrus" was pretty cool, though. I wasn't really diggin' the whole Janis Joplin-esque character (who butchered "Helter Skelter"), besides her 'harder' takes on some songs like "Why Don't We Do It In The Road". Watching this brought me back a longing I've had for some time. One I would give up my first born son for. Or atleast a body part of some kind. That being a hard rock Beatles album, in the style of "Helter Skelter" "I Want You", "Revolution" etc. It is a reoccuring fantasy that this album is locked up somewhere waiting to see the light of day. I suppose if we're talking first born I better ask for a double-album. Let's call it The Black Album, shall we?
