Paul McCartney Cites Ray Charles Among His Favorite Beatle Covers

Paul McCartney has chosen R&B legend Ray Charles as among the artists doing his favorite covers of Beatles songs. “(Ray) did a good ‘Eleanor Rigby,’ McCartney declared during a recent interview.It seems McCartney’s flattered whenever anybody, of any level of musical popularity or skill, takes the time to cover his work: “People say ‘You must be cringing when you hear that watered-down, steam-organ version of ‘Good Day Sunshine’!’ but I love it, are you kidding? ” McCartney has been covered more than most artists, but soon that table will turn, as Sir Paul is deep into sessions for his next LP, which will find him covering a set of pop standards. Macca tells Rolling Stone he’s having a great time recording songs he used to sing as a child on New Years Eve’s, with his father on piano.
