freakchic9, thank you! Maroon 5 sings very well, but the timbre of the voice is strange for me to hear on this song. As I can see they covered quite a lot of the Beatles songs! Well done, guys!

^^  Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 did a cover of another Beatles song too...  I can't remember which one it was  (It's the same one that the Carpenters covered).  It on my old computer in the basement, evidently I'm a little too lazy to go down there and look it up

I think that we have Day tripper.  I'll have to go on there one of these days and get some of the music off of there (my dad had hundreds of hours of music on there, part of the reason why it crashed!)

I wasn't sure whether to bump this or start a new topic called "Favorite Covers of Beatles Songs". I'll leave that up to the Mod Squad. ;) Anyway, I don't think this is a better version of "In My Life" but it's definitely my favorite cover of it:

Yes did a cover of Every Little Thing in they're early line up. I think they missed on it. It's too fast a furious for a happy song  but there's some interesting changes.

as much as I am not crazy about her stuff, but Anne Murray did a real good version of "You wont see" and I kinda got liking for Elvis' version of "Something".

Joan Baez's version of Let It Be is my favourite cover of a Beatles song I think, I feel like she really understood the intent of the song. I tend to like her interpretations of her contemporary's music because she tends to actually try to express the message ofthe song rather than just pay tribute to it like a lot of artists

Joan Baez Let It Be

Anne Murray's version of 'You Wont See Me' is outstanding Larry. Gotta agree with you there.

I like it too and so did John:

"When John Lennon knocked on her dressing room door at the 1974 Grammy Awards, it was to tell Anne that her hit, "You Won't See Me", was his favourite cover version of a Beatles song."
