wayback wednesday: "She's a woman who understands, she's a woman who loves her man..."  
Since I have a deep obsession with the Beatles and at least a passing interest in American Idol (especially when there's nothing else on), I had to watch them singing songs from the Lennon/McCartney catalog last night. The best was definitely Chikezie Eze (great name) singing McCartney's Little Richard homage "She's a Woman." I would totally listen to that performance again on my ipod. Less interesting, but still quite good was Carly Smithson singing Lennon's "Come Together." Other than those two, the song choices and performances were (at best) safe and predictable. I wish the country girl had just done "Rocky Raccoon" instead of that line-dancing version of "Eight Days A Week."

Listening to: Codeine - "Realize"

I physically cringed when I heard Eight Days a Week so violated. My choice for a Beatles country hoedown would've been "I've Just Seen a Face". It's fast-paced, has Dylan-influenced cred, plus a killer bluegrass hook to keep the audience on their feet.

That and the fact that Jim Sturgess did a decent/recent cover.

Re: Country Girl
Say, that could be good!

I'd also enjoy a Nashville-style "Honey Pie," but I doubt she'd get many votes for it.
