Watch this.

Three year old Olivia North, with the aid of her father Matthew, with Two Of The Beatles Have Died, her self-penned tribute to the passing of John and George. As a proper net-wide meme it's hardly Keyboard Cat, with roughly 2,750 views in 22 months at the time of writing, but the mysterious entity known as The Thomas Ferguson Band was so taken by it he commissioned 21 artists to cover, remix or respond to it. The line-up includes The Cuban Boys, MJ Hibbett, Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences, Applicants, Alan MX and Keith Top Of The Pops And His Minor UK Indie Celebrity Allstar Backing Band, the latter of which incorporates Eddie Argos, Mikey also from Art Brut, Simon and Julia Indelicate, The Vessel from David Devant And His Spirit Wife, Sue Denim off of Robots In Disguise and some other people from some other bands. Released on Helen Llewelyn Product Nineteen Recordings, via the oft reliable Brainlove, it's available from their Myspace for £7, all proceeds going to the British Lung Foundation.
