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.

oh my god….that was awful….absolute torture on the ears…you’d have to stone tone-deaf to remotely think that was even tolerable…
I’m not tone deaf and actually enjoyed that!
jajaja…”(God help you)”….
It was fun. I probably wouldn’t buy it though.
Really dude? Jeebus must actually be tone deaf because he is apparently not somebody who understands what they would sound like playing back their own voice on a recording. Stop hating Jeebus
