Bono's cover of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

What do you guys think?

To me I think he could have covered something else, and better.

It seems lifeless to me.

I thought I Am the Walrus was loads better than Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, a cover version that can best be summed up by this:

meh.

I liked it. I though he sounded more like a Beatle than himself. I was listening to John Lennon today and I thought that in certain ways Bono sounded alot like him.

A different take, but a thoughtful one.

I think I am the Walrus is more interesting Lucy is kind of boaring. However I was a little disapointed that Bono didnt show off his Bono voice a little more he tried to blend with the Beatles wich is ok too I guess neither are meant to be big vocal songs

As a song, I find Lucy to be quite boring. I don't think Bono could have done much more with this song. I find his voice rather interesting, especially in the verses. I think he delivered this transcendent, psychogenic feeling of the song well, though, I agree that the Walrus sounds more like Bono vocally.

It's okay. I agree he sounds like a Beatle. Would have been interested in hearing some other Beatle covers. The Walrus is definitely better: Beatle with a twist of Bono. Delish.

Sounds like AB era guitar at the end of the song - clearly pointing to new "hard" sound for the next album

Here is a link to the audio of the song:

I've grown to like this one quite a bit, but I also like Bono's I Am The Walrus better.

I'd take Shatner's over Bono's.

The unintentional (or intentional???) comedy of Shatner trumps a lame cover any day.

I thought Lucy and Walrus both were good and if you haven't seen Acrossthe Universe yet you are missing a really good story!

His cover of I am the Walrus off the soundtrack is really good.

I guess his backing band is The Secret Machines.

I purchased it off iTunes.
