Let It Be is the fifth album by Laibach. It was released in 1988 and is a cover of the Beatles' album Let It Be recorded in Laibach style with military rhythms and choirs, though a few tracks deviate from this formula, most notably "Across the Universe". The title track is omitted and "Maggie Mae" is replaced by the German folk song "Auf der Lüneburger Heide" in combination with Was gleicht wohl auf Erden. "For You Blue" begins with Moondog's "Crescent Moon March", which is subsequently used as a counter-melody. "One After 909" includes a small piece of "Smoke on the Water", originally written and recorded by the band Deep Purple.
