She's Just Bein'... Paul McCartney?
When Miley Cyrus starting hanging out with The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne, I was like, that's weird, but they're weird, so maybe it's not that weird and moved on. Coyne and Cyrus previously came together to record a cover of The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" — and to smoke a bunch of weed — but because that hasn't be released, we didn't have to worry about it. Okay, we had to worry about it a little because AHH THAT COULD END UP SO HORRIBLY! But now, the duo are at it again. Miley Cyrus recorded a cover of The Beatles' "A Day in the Life" with the Flaming Lips' frontman and we actually get to hear some of it this time. Ahh! High alert Beatles fans, Miley haterz, Miley loverz, Flaming Lips fans, and anyone else who even remotely cares about this!
Coyne posted a video clip of Cyrus singing "A Day in the Life" on Instagram along with a ridiculously long caption which reads,
Woke up ..fell out of bed.. dragged a comb across my head.. Yep!!!! @mileycyrus singing the Paul McCartney bit on A Day In The Life!!!!! Yesss!! Thanks @NewFumes Almost done mixin !! Gon beeee rad!!!!! If ya love The Beatles and John Lennon you gonna love this!!! #freaks #floyd#beatles #srgtpeppers #theflaminglips#lovemoneyparty #dogsmusicfriends#drugmusicthatdestroyshate
I'm not sure about the "If ya love The Beatles..." part. This clip, which is only about ten seconds long, is an emotional roller coaster: "No! Don't do that to The Beatles! Wait, it actually sounds kinda chill. Miley sounds... cool? No! Wait. What? I don't like it, I don't like it, I don't like it!"
My conclusion is that it sounds like it would play in a club scene in a movie. You know, the type where everything is in slow motion and the focus is on the main character who is having a fun, trippy time when suddenly stress starts building inside of her and sweat beads form on her forehead. Does this sound too specific? I think you know exactly what I'm talking about.
For that situation, perfect. For real life, not so much. The probably of it inducing uncontrollably anger is too high.
