david coverversion: rufus wainwright vs. the beatles vs. the country gentlemen

that live country gentlemen record is still spinning. a-getting spun like a girl who got too few or too many hugs from her daddy. dudes slay. this record's version of matterhorn is top notch, as is their version of john denver's 'take me home, country roads', which might get a david of it's own. probably later, don't want to oversaturate the scene, you know. anywho, charlie and co. breakdown the beatles 'yesterday' to utter perfection which i'm sure led to stacking tons of japanese cougars backstage in their rooms. the beatles are this new band that almost ruined music, totally not worth checking out. pussies. foreskin nibbler rufus wainwright contributed 'across the universe' to the beatles tribute album known as the 'i am sam' soundtrack. one of the greatest musical ironies has to be the song 'rufus is a tit man' written by his father, loudon wainwright III. rufus' earlier albums are a good place to start if you're new to the scene. maybe i haven't given his new record enough rotations, but it seems like he was a little lazy with the songwriting this time around. yes i know it's two in 6 hours, but consider this two for saturday or something, lame-o who cares-o.

the country gentlemen - yesterday
the beatles - yesterday
the beatles - across the universe
rufus wainwright
- across the universe

the country gentlemen - matterhorn

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't
