All The Lonely People

For a change of pace, here is a live Beatles' cover by Jellyfish that breaks the mold and goes off into its own little world of melancholy. It really gets me how the chords have been altered ever so slightly in a way I could never have imagined would work. Normally I would toss off any attempt to alter this classic, but it all works beautifully.

What a lovely cover version (Including the samurais on the shamisen in the intro!). And those Japanese hosts are pretty darn adorable. I have no memory of this band from the era, but I love their sound. Thanks!

Oh how I love this band. I also love the 'karaoke' style lettering in the vid!

When I saw them live, the encore was "No Matter What" by Badfinger. Such a great band.
