Across The Universe-wise, I love the Hold Me Tight cover so much. I love them all a lot really.

Anyone heard some good covers of Beatles songs?  I heard one of Ray Charles doing "Let It Be."  It was really good.  I've also heard that Aerosmith did a cover of "Come Together."

I like Elton John's version of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds better than the original. Of course John is on both versions!

Buddy Holly sings A day in the life
:angel:

Of course, it is not Buddy singing - it's just sung in Buddy's style - a mash-up of Beatles' and Buddy's style.
The band is called Big Daddy.
Hope you'll like it.

Hi everyone,
Here's a funky Beatles instrumental medley done by my very own sensei:

Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel is the only guy I know who can play several things (on his guitar) at the same time (incredible guitarist)  ???

Ok, I love this cover because the band is having so much fun on the stage with all that jumping - plus, there is crazy ending.
And Gwen Stefani is - no doubt - cute.

I've been trying to figure out if Ringo's version of "I Call Your Name" has ever been officially released. I know it was from a British television special honoring John's 50th birthday but I first heard it on Pandora radio so I assumed that it was released. The only place I can find it is on a bootleg album. I really like it and I just want to pay my $1.25 or whatever and have it; I don't want to mess around with all that other stuff!

I guess I'm not the only one who likes it!

I like the way The Mamas and The Papas did the song too...cabaret style! This is a bit abbreviated compared to their album version:

<a href="http://youtu.be/lHnINo3A8xY" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://youtu.be/lHnINo3A8xY</a>



The album version:

I always wondered which John Cass was calling during the bridge; Phillips or Lennon but knowing her feelings for Denny I'd now guess it was the songwriter John!

Ooo...I forgot about this folkier version. Love it too.

It seems that the Flaming Lips love Beatles.
This is Strawberry Fields. I'd wish it had better sound quality.

The only cover versions I prefer to The Beatles originals are:

Billy J. Kramer's "Do You Want To Know A Secret?"
and
Siouxsie & The Banshees' "Dear Prudence"

Here is my guilty pleasure, haunting...almost spooky in fact...but to me, mesmerising:
