At live shows, we also do arrangements of tunes by Radiohead, the Beach Boys, The Church, Feist, and Sting.
Cool. I really wanna hear that arrangement of Across the Universe... although Beatles songs have been covered to hell in too many different styles, I like Tony Williams' jazz arrangements of some of them-- like the Fool on the Hill.
