If they were still around today (by "they" if course I mean the COMPLETE group, including George Harrison and John Lennon) I wonder which PG composition they might have chosen to do if they had participated in the PG cover tune exchange project.
The only one I can come up with that might fly as far as my own musings go is perhaps On the Air.
I can imagine them doing it with the shouted stype of "Dizzy Mis Lizzy" or "Paperback Rider" > man on man would that have ROCKED!
I'll bet that they would have loved to have done it too. Anyone else have any thoughts? Forgive me if this has been asked before. I am a newbee and have not had a chance to fully explore the treasures in the Forum's archival Caverns yet.

. . ."On the Air" is a great idea - probably also "Harold the Barrel", "Mother Of Violence", "Excuse Me", "Happy the Man", . . .
PG covering the "Beatles" and John Lennon :
- Let It Be
- Strawberry Fields Forever
- Lucy is in the Sky with Diamonds (thanks Needy)

Hah! Excellent! I had not thought of those!! All very good. I especially could see John Lennon doing Mother of Violence with only piano. He is missed.
And FYI, PG audiophiles, I may have had a brain synapse failure on my "recollection of hearing a PG version of Lucy in the sky With Diamonds. If Peter heard about that he might have thought, "Damn! I must have been pretty out of it at some point because I don't recall that at all"! Uh, which is probably because I got it wrong, sieur!
Please excuse me! I think it must have been
Strawberry Fields instead. I'd still very much like to know how to obtain a copy of it! But no, It was not in all likelihood Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds after all. My memories of so long ago have grown cloudy it appears (shades of Spinal Tap)! My appologies to all for the idioticy! (cukoo clock sounds!)
That is the one error I will allow myself in 2009!

How about. . .
"The Barry Williams Show", "Secret World", "Lovetown". . .
I always thought that Secret World had sort of a "Beatleish" sound to it during certain points of the song.
The Barry Williams Show in a sort of a Sgt. Pepper style.
Lovetown in a sort of Come Together sytle.
Just a thought!

. . ."All This And World War II"-OST 1976 ("Strawberry Fields Forever"). . .
. . .maybe "with a little help from my friend" MAK we could add sth. on her "PG-covers thread".
There is already a full-length version on "page 2" of the thread - think we can dig out a short edit featuring original film sequences from the film "WWII".
Let`s see. . .
