Beatles songs by other singers
« on: September 24, 2008, 08:02:02 PM »

Are there any Beatles songs better sung by other singers? KEyes has posted a video where Franz Ferdinand sings It Won`t Be Long. I can`t say I like it. In fact, I don`t like their singing at all. What terrible voices and the style is wooden.

Have you heard George Michael singing A Long and Winding Road? A lot of people believe that his version is much better than the Beatles`. It is kind of accepted truth. Though I disagree with this point of view. I`ve listened to him singing the song and NO. Maybe it is because I don`t like him?

Haven't heard it.  But I don't like that song anyways.  I will see if I can find it, and see if it's any better.

I like The Buckinghams version of 'I'll Be Back' better than the Beatles version.

I like the Joan Baez version of Let It be (who saw that one coming?), but I don't think it is better than the original.

Peter Sellers performs 'A Hard Day's Night' in the style of Laurence Olivier's interpretation of Richard III.

What? The Wallflowers? Which album is it? Or only a soundtrack?

I hate most covers, especially by female singers, but I thought Alanis Morissette did an amazing job at singing Dear Prudence. She doesn't have that annoying breathing baby voice most girl singers go for. Her voice is powerful. And it seems like she actually has an appreciation for the music.

As for Ozzy singing In My Life, obviously his voice isnt up to par for that song.  But I think he did it because I read somewhere that he is a huge Beatles fan, and I think I may have even read that when he first got into music, he wanted a band like them.  Someone correct me if I am wrong.

And I will say I really like Alanis' version of Dear Prudence.  I don't care for that song, but I think she did a great job, I enjoyed listening to it!

Ozzy is a huge fan of the Beatles. I saw him on Howard Stern once when Paul was supposed to appear on the show and he met him in the hallway and was just star struck. I tried to find it on youtube, but no luck.
