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.
