Last Thursday the web was invaded with the rumour that Arctic Monkeys were going to be performing at the London 2012 Olympics ceremony after a journalist posted a photo of a monitor of the rehearsals where a heavy-quiffed Alex Turner was clearly present, and singing on a microphone.
We all knew something was up, but no one really expected this cover to be the Monkeys surprise. 'Come Together' by The Beatles is the opening track of Abbey Road and even though it was not one of the most commercially successful Beatles
' singles, it manages to engage the listener with its grippy verses that allegedly describe the personalities of each member of the Fab 4. Odd choice of a cover for this event some might say, but I reckon it blends effortlessly with the sound the Arctics achieved on Suck It And See.
The Sheffield quartet's version almost at the end of the ceremony, was faithful to the original, accentuating the bluesy side of the track with some booming Turner vocals, perfectly on tune and owning the stage as if the song always belonged to them. I bet that Sir Paul Mc was backstage danging along to this one. What did you think of it?
