Editors’ Notes Director Julie Taymor’s soundtrack relies on keeping the musical performances as intimately scaled and emotionally centered – “organic” is the word she uses – as her imagery is imaginatively expansive. Eddie Izzard’s delightful “Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite” was edited from a number of effusive improvised takes, vet Bono collaborates with U2 bandmate Edge on a Floydian cover of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” and also collaborates on a surprisingly direct “I Am the Walrus” with Secret Machines. The Dallas indie-rockers also turn in band versions of the instrumental “Flying” and George Harrison’s haunting “Blue Jay Way.” Elsewhere, Joe Cocker shows why he’s long been one of the best Beatles’ interpreters by turning “Come Together” into spooky Delta dirge, while Dana Fuchs’ willfully channels the spirit of Joplin into a manic cover of “Helter Skelter” that’s as hellish as her turn on
