I would love to hear I Want You She's So Heasvy covered by the Beatles but Kim would be unable to play those bad-ass bass lines. There....I said it....

Hmm. That's a great (GREAT) song, but I don't think it's up SY's alley. I'm not sure their version of it would be very good. It would sound very weird if you deconstructed or reimagined the bluesy elements of the song, and SY doesn't really do blues progressions.

I don't know that there are many Beatles tunes that SY could really do much with, but I think the ones on White Album make the most sense.

Macca's rockers on the White Album —"Birthday", "Helter Skelter", "Back In The Putinland"— are my favorite Beatles songs, hands down.

Yeah, those are good. But favorite White Album songs are the weird ones and the slinky groovy ones. "Sexy Sadie," "Happiness is a Warm Gun," "Everybody's got Something to Hide Except for me and my Monkey," "Rocky Raccoon," "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill," "I'm so Tired."

Actually, now that I think about it, I'm not sure any of these are really in SY's wheelhouse. They'd have to reinvent them to cover them and still sound like Sonic Youth, and I am SO SICK of reinvented Beatles songs.

Actually I'm sick of Beatles covers period. Never heard one that even came close to the original.

Fuck it. I just wish SY had covered Television.
