Helter Skelter

In the video below, Bono says, “This song Charles Manson stole from the Beatles. We’re stealing it back.”

Personally, I prefer Dolly Parton's version of "Garbage Dump".

Bold statement by Bono, except that it was one of the shittiest versions of Helter Skelter EVER!

OMG-LMAO. I always sing that sing around the house and it drives my daughter crazy.

Are you implying that Bono is ...grandiose?? NAAAAH! Perish the thought, people....

I still love the story about Bono getting word out to Captain Beefheart that he wanted to "record a song" with him. The Captain, who never had any time for ego hero rock stars, replied with typical Beefheartian dismissivness "Who's Bongo?"

Cease2 said...

Yeah Candy, Siouxsie's "Dear Prudence" was fab.

For once Patty agrees with both of you. ;)

Say what you want about Motley Crue, but they did a nice, raunchy version of Helter Skelter. You get the feeling that they're injecting their awareness of Manson and the Family into their rendition. There's kind of a volcanic sexuality going on here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2dO619pSPo

Yet another reason I hate Bono.

PS my 14 year old does a better version on Beatles Rock Band.
