Title: Cover Versions Of Beatles Songs
Post by: GreenApple on November 02, 2006, 08:32:09 PM
Ever heard any as good as the originals? Can't be many. The only one I know that comes close is CSN's cover of Blackbird.

I'm hearing a lot more now on Beatles-A-Rama!!! and they're just interesting.

It seems that the soundtrack of I Am Sam contains Beatlescovers that are quite good.

That's probably the best Beatles cover album.

Come Together, Helter Skelter & I'm Down by Aerosmith are three of the best Beatles covers.

U2's Helter Skelter is pretty good. check it out on the Rattle and Hum album

Joe Cockers With A Little Help is superb. Not better, cos he pretty much changes the genre, but as good as.

Absolutley agree with you there!

I've always thought that this song was SO radically different to The Beatles' version he could have re-written the lyrics and called it his own composition - no-one would have been any the wiser.

I forgot that one. The Woodstock version is fantastic, and on the same level as the original. I heard Pat Benatar's Helter Skelter on Beatles-A-Rama!!! the other day after many years, and that's good too.

You're right about Joe Cocker's cover of With A Little Help From My Friends Kevin, especially his classic performance at Woodstock in 69 where the song rocks.

I don't like Joe Cocker's version. But that's probably just because I don't like Joe Cocker.

I was just reading the Wiki article on Fats Domino and it says he did great versions of Lady Madonna and other Beatles songs including "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey"?

Can this be true?  Anybody heard the Fat Man who walked to New Orleans doing this song?  It's got to be either horrible or great.  

No Jimi Hendrix Day Tripper on the Uncut list?  And I like Joe Cocker's With A little help from my Friends better than She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.

And Steve Earle's "I'm Looking Through You" is awesome.

Chet Atkins Picks the Beatles is a nice piece of work too.  With liner notes by George Harrison.

Richie Havens "Here Comes the Sun."

Jerry Garcia Band (and Dead Boots) of "Dear Prudence"

Neil Young Imagine

bob Dylan Yesterday (bootleg with George)

Hey Jude Wilson Pickett (with Duane Allman)

Johnny Cash In My Life

Forgot about the Steve Earle. It is excellent. And Cash's version of In My Life is one of the best Beatles covers I've ever heard.

The Uncut list is 50% predictable and 50% just damned wierd.

The "dive bombs" are what set his base line apart from others'.

Trust me Barry, you don't want to know! Suffice it to say that if I ever do hear her cover I will immediately want to erase it from my mind with something nice like the Brasil '66 cover. I remember hearing that on the radio or someone's record when I was little. And I'm not offended by the other ones either.  ;) I heard a local band do "I've Just Seen a Face" not too long ago. They were good but they did it with all gee-tars; not like these fellers.

Wow! Another reminder of why I adore the 60s so much. Accept no substitute, that was fantastic.

The roving camera on the beach idea, where people pass by in front of the subject (the Courier and Aunt Jessie in MMT / the gaggle of reporters in CUIYC.....am I making sense?) was almost entirely lifted from the final scene of the (brilliant, seriously!) Dave Clark Five film 'Catch Us If You Can'.

This clip, like Herb himself, seems to completely embody the James Bond style/Sunday Colour Supplements of the day, I can't believe he would have gone down too well with the hippies.

I agree.  There was nothing like the 60s.

Thinking about the Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass Taste Of Honey video a bit more, indeed The Beatles brought their instruments to various locales a year before in Help!  We saw them on the beach doing Another Girl, on the Salisbury Plain doing I Need You and The Night Before, and they hauled a grand piano onto the ski slopes to do Ticket To Ride...

Johnny Cash - In My Life is very moving.

Agreed. Perfect choice that reflected the place he was at with his life at the time.

Also, The Beach Boys' Tell Me Why, I Should've Known Better and You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (from the Party album) deserve a mention. Nothing earth-shattering, but genuine, nice covers that show just how much The Beach Boys loved the songs of one of their main musical rivals.
