I wish they had made a cover of Too Much Monkey Business in the early days.

Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit” (“Perhaps one day it will be a pleasure to look back on even this”; Virgil, The Aeneid, Book 1, line 203, where Aeneas says this to his men after the shipwreck that put them on the shores of Africa)

A weird concept to think of I guess but are there any songs by other artists that you wish were either covered by The Beatles or perhaps used to inspire one of The Beatles own work?

Got it

 

Mine are probably going to be considered a bit weird 

 

this probably looks weird but I just wish The Beatles had this chorus . . so not so much a cover as much as I wish they had written it first 

 

and then this song 

 

of course this song . .  (1968)

 

another weird one . . the melody is based on Pachelbel's cannon 

 

More songs

Empire of the Sun - "Walking on a Dream"

Empire of the Sun - "Alive"

Oasis - "Wonderwall"

KC & The Sunshine Band - "Please Don't Go" 

 

Badfinger - "Baby Blue", "No Matter What", "Maybe Tomorrow", but definitely "Without You"

 

Harry Nilsson - "Without Her" . . I've always looked at this as a sequel to "For No One"

 

Also "She Sang Hymms Out Of Tune"

 

Bobby Caldwell - "Open Your Eyes"

 

 

Cher - "Bang Bang" (1966)

 

Now to make this even weirder 

 

Alice Deejay - "Better Off Alone" 

 

Cascada - "Everytime We Touch" (it's probably hard to hear this song without her voice but I think the lyrics would be great for a Paul McCartney led track)

I don't know if I could come up with an exact album of songs, but I've always wondered what a Beatles-covering-Led Zeppelin album would sound like. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7 Also, speaking of Beatle/Zeppelin covers, I've already heard some bootlegs of Led Zeppelin playing Beatles tunes/covers at concerts (Twist And Shout and From Me To You come to mind), and they were just awesome!  a-hard-days-night-george-9

Now that I think of it, that album would probably sound hilarious considering how incredibly un-Robert Plant-like their voices are. a-hard-days-night-george-10

And maybe the cover would look like this:
