"All the songs on this cd stink.They really do.But, I'm not going to tell you how much they stink. oh, no.You're going to have to BUY THIS CD and find out for yourself. Who knows? You may think I am wrong.If you do, then write and say so. Exercise your right to free speech.And, in the meantime, know right now that, without this cd, you'll be unable to hear the likes of Bing Crosby sing Hey Jude, or Little Joe Pesci sing Got To Get..., or best yet Telly Savalas--TELLY SAVALAS--sing Something. And, and, that's not to mention the horror that is Mission Impossible...everytime i play this cd, i bet Yoko gives a slight shudder. and, i laugh and laugh and laugh. it's fabulous. it's better than pot."
If for no other reason...

"Let's be very clear: this CD will probably have a short half-life in your CD player. A lot of it is genuinely annoying, but like a pipewrench: when you need really annoying Beatles' covers -- and you know you will -- nothing else will do.The title of my review refers to the included Joe Pesci version of "Got to Get You Into My Life". This little postcard from an early moment of exploration and experimentation in Joe's life, sounds like a bland lounge singer through the verses, but when the chorus kicks in, Pesci's voice hits you like a bullet. If for no other reason, this is a keeper."

"For years now I've been collecting covers of Beatles tunes. Sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised (e.g. Mel torme' doing 'She's Leaving Home'). Sometimes I feel like someone is sticking a dentist drill in my ear (e.g. The Springville, Utah 7th Grade Choir singing 'Help'). Most of the songs on this album fit into the later catagory. May West said; "when I'm good, I'm good- when I'm bad, I'm better". Well, when she sings the beatles...she's worse!This CD is campy, ecclectic and perfect for running people you don't like out of your parties!"
