Singer/songwriter Elliott Smith covers "Because," from the
Beatles' Abbey Road, on the soundtrack to the upcoming film
"American Beauty." The disc, due Oct. 5, also includes tracks by classic
rockers the Who and Free and by modern bands Folk
Implosion, the eels and Gomez. "American
Beauty," starring Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening, is a dark comedy about
passions unloosed in the suburbs.
