Walk Hard: The Beatles

At a friend's house the other day we watched the film "Walk Hard". Okay, I wouldn't recommend the movie, it was a little stupid and I didn't get many laughs out of it.
However, this bit gave me a giggle.

Every single cover version of Hello Goodbye I have ever heard has been terrible. It pops up all the time in commercials. It's so annoying! The Beatles version is the only one I can tolerate and that's mostly because of  the awesome "Hey la, hey hello-ah's" at the end.   ;D

I didn't think it sounded that bad. Its a very basic song anyway(and not one of my favorite Beatle tracks for some reason). The female harony gives it a different sound.

I saw an ad recently (forget what it was for) with All Together Now playing in it. Not a great cover, but I don't mind it. :)

On Series 6 on Curb Your Enthusiasm Larry David has tickets for a McCartney concert and is at a party before the concert and is reading this book about Freaks and laughs and says 'what a freak' and Heather Mills walks in (not the Heather a actress but you just see her back) and she goes 'who you calling a freak?' and Larry gets chucked out the concert.

It frees the seniors .. Can not Buy Me Love plays and they play like in the scene area A Hard Day's Night! Even jumping Beatle! (The old man with a beard not Ringo Inflatable little to reverse.) While the credits are playing a record called Night One day, Bart is shown with Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa take places in the Beatles.

A scene from the film, The Runaways:

I watch a show called Outsourced (I probably will stop watching because it's the 1st season and it's kind of a boring show) and it made me really happy when they had a Beatles reference one episode.Well it's an episode about one of the characters wants to be in a talent show thing so the manager is with him and another girl from the office that sings good and the manager's girlfriend is there and the other guy says "Get out Yoko this is a closed session".

I also have heard many more references on shows and movies and also some books.People said Stephen King has some references in his books,I just recently was reading his book Dreamcatcher and there's an I Am The Walrus reference.I already wrote a comment on this like 10 minutes ago but I wanted to write more because I left out more of what I wanted to say.I really wish I could make a movie all having a bunch of Beatles references,I actually think about ideas for it lol :)

Despite the sugary, feel-good overkill of it, I think John would approve of the 'Imagine' version.

IWHYH started ok but became boring when the music came in.  I like SLS though - it shows what a cool sort of funky melody it is.

Yeah I think John would agree with the sentiment of the song with the deaf choir.

Don't know if these two were mentioned already. Anyway, Family Guy is absolutely hillarious.  ;D
