Some of the Beatles’ songs were written by this actor.
While The Beatles did perform a few covers, the majority of their songs were penned by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Some people, however, believe that their songs were penned by an actor. This is how the actor reacts to their misunderstandings.
Making a musical with The Beatles’ songs was deemed a “bad idea” by one actor.
Across the Universe is one of the more ambitious films based on The Beatles’ songs. The jukebox musical features several Beatles songs in a story that spans the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, free love, and recreational drug use in the 1960s. The film stars Jim Sturgess as Jude, a guy named after a certain Beatles song.
Interestingly, Sturgess was initially uninterested in the idea of a Beatles musical. He told The New York Times, “When I heard they were doing a film with Beatles music, I thought, ‘What a bad idea.'” “I got withdrawal symptoms after we finished shooting: I kept thinking, Why isn’t anyone singing on the street? I felt compelled to sing.”
One of The Beatles’ “White Album” songs was partially a parody.
When people credit Jim Sturgess with writing The Beatles’ songs, he reacts in this way.
During an interview, Sturgess mentioned that fans occasionally ask him about the film. “I’ve had a few folks think I composed some of those tunes, you know,” he admitted. “Growing up in England, it’s extremely odd to think that people believe I composed some of those songs. I never tell them, though, that I didn’t.”
He’s claimed credit for several of The Beatles’ most well-known songs in these scenarios. “‘All You Need Is Love?’ ‘That’s one of mine,’ she says. Yes, I wrote the song ‘Come Together.’ This is a condensed version of the narrative. I hope you found it entertaining.
