The shit was so chunky it broke the fan.

Quick question, has anyone heard the Past Masters version of Across the Universe? It was the one I put on my Desert Island list, it could be one of the greatest songs ever made by anyone.

All of that hyperbole is necessary.

Let It Be is a good song, probably in my Top 20 so it's not that big of a loss. It's not as egregious as fucking ELEANOR RIGBY over TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS.

Yes, I will chill in a second, hold on.

I'm listening to it right now -- I'm not sure I like it better than the original. The intro and outro (birds chirping, wings flapping) are cool, but there are some screechy backing vocals that I think hurt the song a little.

Hmm, the backing vocals are my favorite new touch. That and the fact it's stripped down to it's essense, you know? I find the original Let It Be release to be too overproduced (well the entire album, really.)

Past Masters + Let It Be... Naked ftw.

Joseph Arthur's version just came on -- he's butchering it!

Well, in fairness, it's hard to listen to anybody else sing it right after John.

Now Fiona Apple's -- I've always liked her version.

Is the verison on Past Masters or Naked like the one on the Anthology?

Don't get me wrong I love ATU but it feels more like an afterthought than a complete song to me...

YES. I've heard that version several times through the years and find those backing vocals just about the most annoying thing on any Beatles track ever.

I don't care for Fiona Apple's version. She sounds like she's either completely stoned out of her gourd, or bored out of her mind.

David Bowie's version is pretty good. Then again, the man shits excellence.

Just keep in mind that when all of the LPs are finished, you will have a chance to vote on ONE 'Final Round' to redo.

And then... What, we pit the winners of each round in a final elimination to determine the greatest Beatles song of all?
