The idea of filling a movie soundtrack with covers of Beatles songs is clearly a good one. It must be, because it's been done so many times.

Overview

The idea of filling a movie soundtrack with covers of Beatles songs is clearly a good one. It must be, because it's been done so many times. Let's see, there have been All This and World War II (1976), Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978), I Am Sam (2001), and Across the Universe (2007), all resulting in chart albums and, in some cases, gold and platinum certifications. So, Imagine That is in good company, even if it's another movie in which the music seems oddly appended to the film itself, in this case an Eddie Murphy comedy. (Hey, that's no stranger than setting Beatles music to World War II footage.) The soundtrack album takes things somewhat further. Nine different Beatles songs are featured among the 11 tracks (with "Here Comes the Sun" presented twice), and four are not actually heard in the film. Among these are the more unusual renditions, including a slow ballad version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by Hope and an equally slow treatment of "I'm Looking Through You" by Tyler Hilton. Although they certainly don't improve on the originals or really represent notable alternative interpretations, these versions at least are different, while other performances are pale copies of the Beatles' performances. The album demonstrates that the Beatles have the potential to score on the Adult Alternative charts of the 21st century, if there were any doubt about that, even if their relationship to the humor of Eddie Murphy seems tenuous.
