Flaming Lips and Wilco Star o Heavy Beatles Cover

(Gibson) It's no secret that the Flaming Lips are big Beatles fans. If you recall, late last year the alternative group posted a psychedelic cover of The Beatles' track "I Am the Walrus" on YouTube, and the patterned rendition has scored over 100,000 hits to date.

Now, the Lips are getting into Beatles-mania all over again and putting their stamp on the Beatles' nugget "I Want You (She's So Heavy)," which they played live during their New Year's Eve 2012 show in Oklahoma City.

George Salisbury director and graphic designer for the Flaming Lips recently tweeted a link to the fresh Lips cover. Coupled with Wilco guitarist Nels Cline on stage, the Flaming Lips serve up an authentic interpretation of The Beatles' landmark, except for the small fact the song is a whopping 17-plus minutes long. more on this story
