The MJ Show #32 (Awesome Beatles Covers from Two Movies)

Now without a doubt, one of the greatest bands in the history of rock n roll were - The Beatles.
Their songs are immortal, they will live on for all of time, I truly believe it. And that is possible not just because of how brilliant the songs are in themselves but also because of the hundreds and hundreds of covers of those songs that are out in the market.

Tonight, I'm giving you some of my favourite Beatles songs covered by other artists. Hope you enjoy them.

Here's the song that inspired tonight's show. I was watching the 25th Anniversary Concert of the Rock And Roll Hall of fame and this INCREDIBLE rendition of one of my all time favourite, Beatles songs was done by the incredible Paul Simon, David Crosby and Graham Nash!

This one's dedicated to @OldMonkMGM (Jyotishko) on twitter. He's the one who urged me to get this concert. And man! What a gig this was!
1st Song - Paul Simon, David Crosby & Graham Nash - Here Comes The Sun #TheMJshow


After hearing this brilliant cover, I remembered a couple of movies that had INCREDIBLE soundtracks. 
Why? Well, it's because they revolved completely around the songs of The Beatles. I'm going to give you quite a few songs from those two.
I'm talking about "I Am Sam" and "Across The Universe"

Here we go. First from "I Am Sam"
