Back in 1998, the Beatles producer, George Martin, produced an album called In My Life. It's probably not an LP that ever made it into your record collection, unless you're a fan of middling covers of Beatles songs. (In which case, you'll love our old post, The 15 Worst Covers of Beatles Songs: William Shatner, Bill Cosby, Tiny Tim, Sean Connery & Your Excellent Picks.) But the compilation does feature one recording that hasn't quite faded from view -- Jim Carrey's take on "I Am the Walrus." There's a comedic component to his performance. But Carrey also demonstrates a "vocal elasticity" that you might not have expected. If you've never heard the Beatles' original recording (God help you), you can find it here.
