Here are some of mine (for this game, the musician or band you pick doesn't have to be still around or alive necessarily):


Drive My Car -- Earth, Wind & Fire (with a funkier soul edge plus brass)


Norwegian Wood -- Bob Dylan (also have Dylan replace the flute at the end with his signature harmonica)


I Saw Her Standing There -- Tom Jones


Things We Said Today -- a Latin pop version, with Gloria Estefan and Linda Ronstadt doing the vocals in Spanish ("Te dices que me almas/Si yo tendria a ir..."), with Carlos Santana on guitar, and Latin percussion (congas, timbales, etc.)


I Will -- duet with Phoebe Snow and Stephen Bishop


I'm So Tired -- duet with David Bowie and David Byrne


Julia -- Emmylou Harris, with mandolin, fiddle, accordion


Penny Lane -- James Taylor


Here Comes The Sun -- Neil Diamond




Man We Was Lonely -- Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young -- with Neil Young doing the main single-part vocals


My Love -- Barry Manilow


Power Cut -- the Roche Sisters


You Are Here -- okay work with me on this and step out of the box, maybe take a hit of acid first:  Frank Sinatra


Mother -- This is the strangest cover idea yet I think -- imagine this:  Emmylou Harris doing a kind of slow and stately country version (with guitar strum, mandolin, sad fiddle sound etc.)

I can just hear her sing out "Mother............ you had me, but I never had you" in that mournful country way she can do so well.  Of course, she would not get progressively more raucous with screaming, as John did, but I think she could transform the song suitably.  Actually, the part where John starts progressively screaming occurs at the end, when he keeps repeating --

"Mama don't go..... Daddy come home" -- which Emmylou could do backed up by a few other singers all together, and throw in a couple of "rough" male voices to give it punch.


Comic Relief:

A Day In The Life -- Leonard Nimoy doing John's part, and William Shatner doing Paul's part, with John Tesh arranging and conducting the orchestra.


Okay, I think I've done enough damage for now...a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Faded flowers, wait in a jar, till the evening is complete... complete... complete... complete...
