The singing of the Mighty Shat

It’s official – in a poll to mark the 40th anniversary of the Beatles’ first Number One William Shatner has been voted as ‘singing’ the worst ever cover version of a Beatles number. Anyone who has heard Shatner’s Transformed Man knows just how godawful our favourite Starship ham is in the singing game – just one step up form Leonard Nimoy’s Ballad of Bilbo Baggins. Shatner’s cover of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds beat Pinky and Perky’s All My Loving, which in turn beat Gareth Gates and his fellow crapster Will Young. Details on the BBC news site.
