Under The Covers: Other Artists Covering Beatles Songs: ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’- Steve Martin. The worst Beatles song ever- written by Paul McCartney- from Abbey Road- covered by Steve Martin from the movie soundtrack of the dumpster fire of a movie ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
That song might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. I understand Paul was a real a-hole about it and wanted to record it over and over. Maybe he should have done it by himself, like he did with “McCartney.”
Yep- Paul thought he had a classic on his hands- and everyone else hated it.
They were probably ready to kill him…
Another fun cover from the Sgt. Pepper movie!
