It's Raining Beatles

Whether or not you can get to tonight's RAIN show at the Civic Center, if you are a Beatles fan you may enjoy some CD's with a slightly differently take on their songs. "I am Sam" is all cover songs. Aimee Mann's and Michael Penn's take on Two of Us is especially engaging. Love by the Beatles is from the Cirque du Soleil's re-imagining of the Beatles' works, often mixing very different songs together. Lastly, Across the Universe presents the songs in the raw, simply sung with great emotion by actors from the movie of the same name.
