Fiona Apple - "Across The Universe"

Great version of Lennon's song, from the recommended film Pleasantville.

Kewl video too. It must take quite a bit of concentration to sing with a serene face while big men are smashing a café with baseball bats all around you.
I also like the rotary gimmick she sat in, in the middle. It gave an unusual sense of abstract disconnectedness to the scene, even while she was actually in the middle of it. Which ties in with the lyrics too.

Another version. Has Dakota Fanning in it. It will be interesting to see what she will do now she's growing up. She was such an exceptional talent as a child actor.
