Somebody already said this a few years ago, but I love Eddie Vedder's cover of You've Got To Hide Your Love Away. I remember when I was younger my mom would play the I Am Sam soundtrack in the car and it was my favorite song to listen to.

Has anyone heard Cheap Trick's Sgt. Pepper's album?  Is it worth blowing my money on?

I havent heard it, but they did do a killer version of Magical Mystery Tour. If its anything like that song, then its probably pretty good.

I haven't heard it either but I do have a Cheap Trick EP with "Day Tripper" on it. I always liked it and since I hadn't heard it in years it was the first thing I played when a got my turntable last summer. So there I was, all excited to hear it again and when it started I thought, "I don't remember the tempo being that fast". As soon as the vocal started I realized that I was playing it on the wrong speed.  ;D  Even after I corrected that I found that I didn't like it as much as I used to. I guess I'm not the Cheap Trick fan I once was.

Since "Here, There and Everywhere" is the song of the week I thought I'd post this one from another band in Brian Epstein's stable. 

The Fourmost Here, There And Everywhere


This YouTube user,
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/MrBeatlesCovers/videos," target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/user/MrBeatlesCovers/videos,</a>
has a lot of Beatles covers on his channel. I find this one very strange, especially the ending:

I can only ever think of two Beatles songs done better by someone else.

The first is Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas' much livelier, tighter version of "Do You Want To Know A Secret?":

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX3ADWQw2iw" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX3ADWQw2iw</a>


The second is "Dear Prudence" by Siouxsie & The Banshees who deliver a deliciously creepy rendition which I think eclipses the insipid, wispy original:

That video showed BBC's Pan's People dancing to The B52's singing Paperback Writer which they recorded for a Buick TV commercial in 2004.  Pan's People did that routine originally on this 8 April 1976 BBC TOTP broadcast of The Beatles singing Paperback Writer...

I like that Billy J Kramer version of Do You Want To Know a Secret. It sounds like one of the songs they should have given to another band, anyway.

Great three-part harmony by The Silkie!   icon_good


Paul played acoustic guitar and George the tambourine on the recorded version...

They were part of the British Folk Movement...
