I just finished watching Across The Universe...again..

I was wondering if The Pit prefered Original Beatles' recordings or the way the songs are sung in the film.

There are some that are better on both sides, so both is a decent option i guess.

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools
What the hell is ATU?

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

I have trained a live tarantula to calm and sit on my guitar due to the awesome powers of my rocking. When I am not playing it angrily bounces about my room hitting everything that isn't me.

rageagainst64 you are a legend!
In my observations, Across The Universe had become trendy to an extent. I see many people who know the songs from the movie, and that's it. They know nothing about The Beatles but claim to based only on the movie. Then they'll go out and buy some Beatles tote bag. It's basically the same as Guitar Hero.

Whatever though, I'm happy with my position.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

Accross The Universe.

I like the originals alot more. They ruined Mr. Kite in the movie, and what the fuck were they thinking letting bono sing i'm the walrus? Bono?! I mean come on!
I much prefer the originals, though the movie was pretty good. I hate the way they did Blackbird.

But Jeff Beck's instrumental of A Day in the Life was amazing.

I'm surprised you returned to this thread after cheeseman owned you.
87% of the soundtrack was bleh, and 0% were better than the originals so I went with option 1.
Do you like anime/manga?
PM me about buying the graphic novels I'm trying to sell
Basically, when I think of modern day Beatles, I think of ATU and Cirque du Soleil: Love, which has a buttload of killer songs remixed by George Martin, the Beatles' producer, and his son. Therefore Love (and Beatles) > ATU any day of the week.
I didn't like most of the ATU ones at all. The Beatles are much better.

I love taking a nice dip of some horse shit, so good.
ATU's songs just failed for me. I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Blackbird, For The Benefit of Mr Kite, and the random snippet of Girl in the intro were just aweful, and the rest were definately sub par, with the exception of Come Together, Strawberry Fields Forever, Something, and the instrumental A Day In The Life.
fear is the mindkiller

Never saw Across the Universe.

Never REALLY listened to the Beatles.

Therefore, I can't be biased to either side.

Neutrality FTW!!!

Some were good in Across the Universe. I personally liked the remakes of For the Benifit of Mr.Kite, Revolution and Come Together, but I wouldn't go as far as saying their better than the originals.

And just because I feel like ranting, I didn't like ATU "that" much. It was alright, but I felt as though they were trying too hard to fit the songs in.
