As if 'Across The Universe' wasn't enough of an autotuned nightmare, now 'Glee' has seen fit to do their own butchered covers.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Luckily I never watch the show so won't be TOO upset by whatever they do to the songs :)

And for those of us here who don't click the link, I'll highlight this part of the text (it's funny 'cause it's true):
 Oh man. OH MAN. This is going to be madness. I can see it now. First, Beatles fans are going to absolutely SH*T when they see the trailer, because, I mean, Glee is covering The Beatles. Then after the episode airs all of the Glee versions of all the songs are going to rocket to the top of the iTunes charts. THEN, and this is going to be the best part, teenagers all over America are going to strike up conversations with their floppy-haired, music snob, Beatles fan uncles at their families’ Thanksgiving get-togethers, and explain that they think the Glee version of “
Here Comes The Sun” is “like, way better” than the Beatles’ version, and then all of the veins in all of the uncles’ heads are going to start throbbing and bulging with such violence that the pressure will eventually cause their whole entire heads to explode all over the green bean casserole. Families will tear each other limb from limb. Society will crumble. Chaos. ANARCHY.

My original post was replaced by empty space. Basically Glee is unadulterated pish and any conversation of it should be banned be it at the dinner table, in the car or wherever.

BBC Radio 4 played a small excerpt of a One Direction song when their movie was coming out and my word was it appalling. I know this type of music isn't meant to appeal to me but in 5/6 years time kids are going to look back and be horrified they liked all this Glee/X Factor/One Direction shite.

Why all the good songs?! If they have to cover it, do what everyone else does and just do the well known, throw away ones like Let it Be and I Want To Hold Your Hand...but why touch two of George's masterpieces? And not a single Ringo song? Nobody loves Ringo.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

I won't even click on that video.

I never understood why people liked Glee. It's a ridiculous show. My sister put it on yesterday and that was actually the first time I saw something of it. Once and never again. It's uncreative, random and autotuned. Also, badly acted.

I don't care if they cover the Beatles, I don't watch it anyway and thank God, I don't have to watch it. It's just sad that tons of children won't realize who the Beatles are and will indeed, as pointed out before, profess the Glee version ''is obviously way better''.

Now, now people, let's be kind. You never know, they might blow our minds and do a faithful rendition of "Revolution #9."

I'm one of those who stopped watching after first season, and I probably will skip this episode. Yesterday, my car stopped at a red light next to a bus with "Let It Be" emblazoned on the side as part of an ad. I almost took a photo but couldn't be bothered.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.
