This is tough, I don't really see George and Ringo as having great cover voices...well with some exceptions (If Not For You).

I think Paul would do a great job on the slower ballad types, God Only Knows would be really interesting. Actually, looking around youtube there's a version where Paul sings it with Brian but from much later. John would bring the energy, I'd want him to rip a few and those motown choices are all good.

Paul

I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons) - Nat King Cole

Hello There Angel - Marvin Gaye

What I'd Say - Ray Charles

Girl from the North Country - Bob Dylan (they'd have to work with this one, but it could be nice if they sweetened it up a bit)

George

Castles Made of Sand - Hendrix

She's Not There - the Zombies

John

Be My Baby - the Ronettes

A Change is Gonna Come - Sam Cooke

All I Could Do Was Cry - Etta James

Runaround Sue - Dion

Ringo

Louie Louie - the Kingsmen

Instrumental (with Billy Preston)

Take Five - Dave Brubeck Quartet

I think they should have fleshed out their "Rainy day Women 12 & 35" jam from the Let It Be sessions. I've always wanted that Dylan classic to get a proper redoing. I think "Ballad of a Thin Man" would've been a good John cover as well (given his reference to it in "Yer Blues"), most likely solo. Happy listening! apple01

Most of the songs they covered during Get Back were oldies that they knew from the old days (Elvis, Buddy, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry), tho there were a handful that were more recent (The Band, Hendrix and their classic House of the Rising Sun (seriously if you havent heard it you really should, the beatles being deliberately awful. Bored and stoned i imagine)).

 

A few i can think of

 

I Heard It Thru The Grapevine – Marvin Gaye (listed above but i hear George singing it not John)

Delilah – Tom Jones (John)

Hello Mary Lou – Ricky Nelson (Paul)

It Doesnt Matter Anymore - Buddy Holly (John & George)

Sloop John B – Beach Boys (just for the lyrics (i want to go home/the worst trip ive ever been on))

That version was awful. Context means everything.
