We return to our series where host Will Hines plays Beatles albums for his Beatles-neutral friend Eugene Cordero, to see what Eugene thinks!
Eugene largely liked Sgt. Pepper! Interesting wrinkle: because of these episode, Eugene is now becoming a Beatles fan and also knows a lot about the band. He's starting to lose his unbiased view! Listen to how quickly he likes the first track! We talk about what makes Pepper great, how much Paul is on it, and of course the amazing final track. Oh, also Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas.
We discuss the 2007 film Across the Universe, a musical which used Beatles songs to tell its story. Host Will Hines joins Across the Universe superfan Alex Lewis (Lewberger) and moderate appreciator John Flynn (Two Old Queens) to watch the film and then discuss it! Bad news, skeptics: Will liked the movie. I mean, sure it's weird that it's about a guy named Jude who falls in love with a girl named Lucy (roommates: Maxwell, Sadie and Prudence). But the visuals are cool and the songs are good! Check it out!
Panel: John Flynn, Will Hines, Alex Lewis.
