Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

In 1968, William Shatner released The Transformed Man, an album filled with his dramatic interpretations of poetry and popular music. One of the most memorable songs from Shatner’s debut album is his interpretation of the 1967 Beatles hit, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. According to popular rumors, it was this interpretation’s success as “one of the worst songs of all time” that inspired Shatner to present his interpretation of Rocket Man at the 1978 Science Fiction Film Awards.
