Under The Covers: Other Artists Covering Beatles Songs: ‘Getting Better’- from Sgt. Pepper- written by Paul McCartney with a little help from John Lennon- you could guess the line John through in there- ‘can’t get much worse.’ In the infamous Sgt. Pepper movie starring The Bee Gees and Peter Frampton- they cover it but I can’t bring myself to use any of their Beatles covers from that album [except a couple NOT by the Bee Gees or Frampton] Gomez is an English indie band. They’ve been around since 1998- and were more successful in the UK than in the US- from what I am reading they are still a band but its been ten years since they’ve released an album of any type.
Hans, I’m really shocked you don’t like the movie or the soundtrack. The Beatles movies except for Hard Day’s Night aren’t any better quality-wise (imo.) Now this version definitely is not superior to the one from the Frampton movie (imo.)
OH this was a total turkey one of the worst movies ever. The Beatles movies were much better- even Magical Mystery Tour.
I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one.
I just ordered the movie from the library system- I will watch it again- I haven’t seen it since in the theater in 1978- will give it another go.
YAY! 43 is enough time that maybe you’ll see it differently. Can’t wait to see what you think of it. It’s been about that long since I saw it also. I should re-watch it. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if you now like it and I now dislike it? lol
when i first saw it- i went in certainly wanting to like it- i was 17- i was excited about it. Maybe I will get the album out and listen to it again too.
