    You gotta have guts to serenade a Beatle. This is particularly so if you choose to serenade him a) with his own song and b) the day he becomes a septuagenarian. And still, the band Modern Inventors bravely gambled their dignity, and it paid off with their masterful cover of Sir Paul McCartney's "Every Night," first released on his 1970 McCartney album. Paul originally penned the tune on a Grecian vacation, back when the Beatles were Getting It Back, Letting It Be, and giving fresh hell to British reporters.

    As he wrote "Every Night," McCartney may have had the world at his feet and practically every news camera in Europe flashing outside his hotel room, but he didn't have the synthesizers and mixing technology of the aptly named Modern Inventors. The group combined their tech-savvy and Josh Benus's too-cool-for-school voice to create a dreamy, modern twist on McCartney's classic. The song will be played by Helen Leicht today on WXPN for McCartney's 70th Birthday. Hey, how awful can growing old be with a soundtrack this good?
