That cover is one of the worst Beatles/Beatles related cover i've ever heard! The next one is some jackass trying to do Happy X-Mas (War Is Over).... Why bother trying unless you do it right and have vocal alteration surgery to sound like John Lennon or whichever Beatle you what? Is that even possible??

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a papercup, they slither willdy as they slip away, across the universe

It was a crappy cover...I dont get why they just play the original song without fans getting so offended, or p*ssed, or whatever the word is.....I'd rather hear a Beatles song(original) then some Good charlotte or Blink 182 song

It's all about permission....I'm glad to say i have never seen a beatle song on a commercial in the UK...There was a great nike advert some years back with Lennons Instant Karma. I loved it.
In principle though I think The BEatles music is best kept away from advertising things other than their own message.

I would, but I have to wait three hours. :(

So at least I know it goes on at 10:40. Of course they have to wait 'till the end.

That means it'll be on here at 11:40. I'll be in bed then so I guess I won't be seeing it.
