Across the Universe

Everyone knocks Phil Spector's over-production of the Let It Be soundtrack, but he deserves a bouquet for his perfect complementing of John Lennon's dreamy lyrics in this song. The alternate version of the song (found on Past Masters, Vol. 2 and Anthology 2) is far less oblique, with fluttery wings at the start and falsetto accompaniment on the chorus that nearly makes one gag.
