licensing trivia

how bad songs get recorded:

“Wes Anderson is asked about the way he uses film in music, and reveals that when he was making The Royal Tenenbaums, George Harrison was too ill to enable the clearing of rights to Hey Jude. So then he decided to get Elliot Smith to cover it. You might think he’d have quietly dropped the idea after that.”

TMFTML cites something but i’m not sure why b/c i couldn’t find this quote there …
