Cover Versions Of Beatles Songs
« 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.

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.

Adrian Belew's version of I'm Down is brilliant. Great maniac guitar solo.

Soundtrack to I Am Sam is excellent.

Johnny Cash - In My Life is very moving.

Just heard a cover of Goodbye by a guy called Robert Crosbie on Beates-A-Rama!! and his voice sounded right like Paul. Almost identical to the bootleg version too.

Day Tripper on the Jimi Hendrix Radio One album. Maybe better, in it's own way. Raucous.
