Ever wanted to hear the gorgeously haunting Eleanor Rigby turned into nightmare fuel? Well today’s your lucky day, because internet classic The Beatles – Eleanor Rigby (but all notes are E and F) has reappeared on the viral circuit.
Originally posted in March last year, the rendition offers nothing but dissonant chords, and a shrill vocal quality that only Stephen King would be proud of.
In today’s episode of musical experiments that we didn’t need or want, a petrifying rendition of The Beatles’ legendary track Eleanor Rigby has re-surfaced on the internet.
Eleanor Rigby, originally appearing on the band’s 1966 record Yellow Submarine, has long been heralded as a striking portrait of loneliness. The song’s post-war bounded lyricism and eerie string arrangement offers an unearthly sense of beauty to the track, deeming it a triumph within the band’s catalogue.

Leaving audiences with nothing but capitalised quote “ALL THE LONELY PEOPLE”, it seems that they set out with one mission. Wreck havoc on a timeless classic, potentially kick-start a career in horror movie composition, and leave the video’s viewers too afraid to fall asleep at night.
To be fair, the track does offer a very accurate accompaniment to today’s climate. However, crank this up on any speaker, and you’ve just turned a lovely Autumn afternoon into a ’70s slasher film. Don’t worry though, there are nearly 100,000 others also processing this corruption of reality:
“The Beatles play the Residents play The Beatles.”
“Charles Manson approved”
“Damn, Geeges lips looking mega THICC.”
Prepare to not sleep tonight:
