"Because (The Beatles cover)" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Ah, because the world is round
it turns me on
Because the world is round

Ah, because the wind is high
it blows my mind
Because the wind is high

Ah, love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue
it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue

Ah, ah, ah, ah

    General CommentI think this song is perfect for the end credits of one of my favorite movies, "American Beauty". I couldn't believe that I hadn't noticed Elliott had played this song before. But it's a great song for the film sung by a great artist.

    General Commenthe said the following about recording this song:

    another recent cover doesn't appear on the new album -- smith's otherworldly reworking of the beatles' "because," recorded for the *american beauty* soundtrack. smith, a fab four fanatic since early childhood, was initially reluctant to remake a beatles tune -- something about treading on sacred ground. "what's the point?" he says. "it was fun to do, it's just weird to think about. but that's the way most things are, and that's the way this record has been. it was fun to do, but not much fun to think about -- particularly that ocean of opinion that surrounds every record that people put out."
