Several weeks ago, Brett and I saw Across the Universe, and I've been humming Beatles tunes ever since. Buying the soundtrack helped feed the fever, and just being around teenagers who are all gaga over the movie hasn't hurt, either. (Gotta tell you: Pretty cool to hear 17-year-olds singing "Hey Jude" in the hallway between classes!)
Tonight, out of the blue, Brett suggested we watch Yellow Submarine for our family fun night, so my Beatlemania continues! The kids weren't entirely enthralled by the film, but we grown-ups got into the tunes, man. Those scenes were pretty trippy. Groooooovy.
Sail the ship, jump the tree
Skip the rope, look at me
All together now...
"1, 2, 3, 4, can I have a little more? 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10! I love you!"
Dang! Now you got it stuck my head, too!
You know, Wade, they say the only way to get a song out of your head is to pass it along to someone else. So thanks!
Where did you see the movie? Karen and I bought the CD week's ago but haven't been able to find a theater to watch the movie.
I love Eddie Izzard's version of Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.
We saw it at the Rave at Northeast Mall, and it's still showing there. The way the songs are used is pretty cool!
