My husband and I used this song for our first dance at our wedding. <3
It's a beautiful take on the classic Beatles song.

Original artists can often be surpassed by cover artists especially when for a purpose. This for "Pleasantville" has a profound connection with movie viewers and as good as John Lennon was , this song along with Gary Jules version of INXS Mad World for Donnie Darko show the overwhelming power of music. Add Chris Cornell doing Billie Jean and I guess that you have the triumvirate....

The singing on this track is decent and well produced, but what I like are all the little supporting parts. There are some neat flutes and synth textures that really do a nice job of supporting and enhancing the melody. The drums have an appropriate retro sound, with the loose, low-tuned snare and mushy (but not unpleasant) kick. Ringo-esque fills abound.

Speaking of the melody, the words don't make a ton of sense, but it sure is a pretty line, and there are some nice, unique touches, like the occasional 5/4 bar and minor IV chord. The track really draws you in. I'm not a stoner or anything, but I like to engage the "repeat one" setting on my iPod and let this track carry me off to sleep.

I've always liked this song but it was on an expensive import or on a full soundtrack - when I just wanted the one track. thank you MP3 format. I've got what I want without having to pay for a bunch that I'm not that interested in.

Everytime I listen to this tune I remember scenes from the Pleasantville movie. It has a wonderful calming effect on me. Fiona has the perfect voice for this song.

I know this song was originally done by the Beatles, but Fiona Apple does a great job. Her voice has a relaxing and dream like quality as she sings this song.

Across the Universe is a beautiful song! The Beatles made a great hit that is covered wonderfully by Fiona Apple.

Also, easy and instant downloading!

I love this song whether by Fiona Apple or by the Beatles. I most definitely prefer Fiona's version though. She has such a wonderful voice.
