Yep, from Across the Universe. Also released on vinyl this year for the first time.

Yeah, I vaguely remember something about this but didn't pay any attention to it, but when I was looking around for some Secret Machines stuff who I recently discovered thanks to this forum, I came across this and thought it was pretty cool.  I think I like Bono's LSD rendition though better then the IATW tune.

Yeah, I have them.  Truthfully, I think Bono's kind of the weak link on IATW.

I'm a huge Secret Machines fan, and have basically bought every known track.  Their versions of Flying and Blue Jay Way on that soundtrack are really, really good.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  They do great versions of them, in the spirit of the originals, but in their own style.

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds is Bono and The Edge, although Edge is only listed in the supporting credits, IIRC.

Sadly, one of the Secret Machines passed after this collaboration.
