Maybe you have heard

The album Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is forty years old this week. I'm sure everyone knows that. This morning I heard a nice story on NPR about covers done of songs from Sgt. Pepper. One really stood out, a version of A Day in a Life by a band called Big Daddy. They do the song as if it's a Buddy Holly song and instead of a long piano chord at the end you hear a plane crash and snippets of radio news stories. It's very eerie and very good. You can hear the story here.
