Harry Nilsson's version of "You Can't Do That" by the Beatles. He uses parts and lyrics from other Beatles songs. Just listening to it once, I got these (in order they appear). The horns could be from another Beatles song but I can't quite pinpoint it. The Song is fantastic. here's a quote from wikipedia
"When John Lennon and Paul McCartney held a press conference in 1968 to announce the formation of Apple Corps, John was asked to name his favorite American artist. He replied, "Nilsson". Paul was then asked to name his favorite American group. He replied, "Nilsson"."

"She's a Woman"
"I'm Down"
"Drive My Car"
"You're Gonna Lose that Girl"
"Good Day, Sunshine"
"Hard Day's Night"
"I want to Hold your Hand"
"Day Tripper"
"Paper Back Writer"
(the shalala might be from Nowhere Man)
"Do you want to know a Secret"
"Norwegian Wood"
"Strawberry Fields Forever"

Also, I don't know how to work imovie (as basic as it is) and I just wanted to put this song up on youtube. I'm sorry it is not more visually entertaining
