Has anybody seen that commercial for Ubi Soft's "Your Shape" featuring an awful, awful pop remake of "Revolution?"

On behalf of all Wii owners everywhere, I would like to extend my apologies to the entire TB:RB forum.

    I've seen a many of crappy covers for ads ever since micheal jackson's death. Like Come Together for some clothes store and All You Need Is Love for a phone company its quite sad.

    I went to see 2012 and there was a trailer for some romantic comedy (Christ I'm sick of romantic comedies) with a cover of "We Can Work It Out". It wasn't the worst beatles cover I've ever heard, but it certainly wasn't great. I don't know why, I just can't stand hearing women cover Beatles songs, it annoys me greatly.

    I saw that one. The Drive My Car cover isn't bad. Actually, it's a pretty decent one.

    Plus, it's just the chorus anyway.
    I guess I'm just generally not the biggest fan of covers.
    ..That, and perfume commercials.

    Ah, can't argue that perfume commercials suck. They're passable when they have a good song playing, however.

    What about the Blackberry one with the horrid All You Need is Love?

    Also, the old Target "Hello Goodbye" takes the cake for the worst and most annoying to me.

    I thought Sheryl Crow's "Mother Nature's Son" was pretty good.

    John Lennon and George Harrison must be turning in their graves.

    of what? Revolution? Where'd you hear it at?

    WOW. this is the worst part of that youtube video witht the coldplay cover.

    some guy named 1starforeveryone says this:

    :) I might replace the Beatles version with this in my MP4 player. The beatles version is nice, but I love how Coldplay modernizes the song with a fresh hip new style. It's like upgrading from a 1968 computer to a 2010 computer. Besides, George Harrison is dead, and it's kinda icky to listen to a song from a dead person.

    then this:

    I realise it maybe difficult to understand. You see, when a song writer dies, the life within the song also dies, and is replaced with a "deadness" that makes it harmful to listen to. The channel that connects the listener to the soul of the artist is severed, and what is left is degraded echoes. We have to make sure that we stay in the present with fresh music that is filled with new life.

    and then this:

    No, I heard it from George Harrison himself. He expressed his worry about people listening to his original recordings after he was dead. He wanted other artists to pick up on this song after his death to perserve the life in it, which is why I applaud Coldplay. Honestly, I think that after Ringo dies, a "BeatIes 2" should be formed to put a concentrated effort in creating new BeatIe songs to replace the old decaying versions.


    that is so unimagineably ******ed that i cannot even comprehend it.

    This sounds like some weird-ass religion or something.

    The soul and life from Michael Jackson records hasn't died even though he has, so the guy is clearly an idiot for saying an artist dying kills the rest of the song.

    When he said that both Mozart and Beethoven turned in their graves. John and George twisted and shouted.

    Possibly the only song that is acceptable as a cover.
