Does anyone have any recollection of a live awards type program but not an awards show that was more of a tribute special to the rock and roll genre where I specifically saw an AMAZING cover of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds sung by Macy Gray? I have been wracking my brain for years trying to find it and I cant remember what station it was on, what year or why it was even on. It was sometime between 1998 and 2003

I saw the show and was trying to point to it during a conversation of the best cover songs but no on in the conversation had any idea what I was talking about and then it was me trying to prove the show actually was televised. I lived in Des Moines, Iowa at that time and live in Kansas City, Mo now but I cant imagine the programming on cable changes much during primetime

Are you sure it wasn't 'With a little help from my friends'?

Music of the millenium and Concert for New York City here. Probably a few others knocking around YouTube too.

I can honestly say it was Lucy in the Sky but it may very well have ended with A little Help from my Friends but that was sung with I think Shania Twain, Shaka Khan, Bonnie Raitt, et al. Man I wish I could find that clip!

No this is not the show. I recall it was very early on in Macy Grays career which was the catalyst for my becoming a fan. She had on these thigh high patent leather boots and looked fierce.

Setlist.fm is usually pretty good about this stuff, but while it lists three different performances of The Beatles by Macy Gray, they are all "With a Little Help from my Friends." If she did "Lucy in the Sky" might it have been a one-off done specifically for a John Lennon tribute show?
