This is caviar: "Strawberry Fields Forever" + Miyazaki's "Spirited Away":

 

 

Hope you enjoy.


 

Caviar indeed!! Spirited Away's music is awesome, but I think having Strawberry Fields as soundtrack doesn't hurt at all !! Thanks for sharing!

Ok as you know I live in Mexico so I have heard many covers in Spanish. Some are good, some are ok.

 

This one is in wikipedia. A true classic. Roberto Carlos - Yo te amo. (And I Love Her)

 

 

this is the original Portuguese version.

 

 

I know this might make you cringe, but I think it's an awesome cover, because it can make you stand up and dance.

 

Tony Vega from the album Tributo a los Beatles Salsa, Hey Jude!

 

 

From the same album, again, And I Love Her. This version is from Jose A. El Canario Mi gran amor te di. It sounds a lot like the Santo and Johnny instrumental version.

 

 

And the Salsa Queen singing Ob-la-di Ob-la-da.

 

 

You can watch many other fantastic songs from this album, just youtube tributo salsa beatles and they're there.

 

Sorry if there's a Fabulosos Cadillacs fan here, but this one is terrible ..

 

 

Another one quite popular when I was a kid. Penny Lane by Los Freddies. The Spanish translation talks about a girl named Penny Lane LOL!!

 

 

To clean your ears after this.. the maestro Jose Feliciano. First he sings Pretty Woman, but wait for a beautiful version of In my Life.

 

 

You can check the covers Jose Feliciano did from the Beatles songs, actually he did an album. But please, check out his The Doors LIght my Fire. It's just amazing.

Oh boy that Jonas Brothers one was pretty awful. I've seen a few commercials, Target and stuff like that, that have played All You Need Is Love and I think Hello, Goodbye and they just sounded bad, there's really no other way to put it.

This is one of the most incredible pieces of music I have ever heard. Jake Shimabukuro is a god on the ukulele. Plus he, as well as many other great ukulele players, is a huge Beatles fan.


You should try the
Beatles Complete On Ukulele podcast; every week they post a Beatles song covered, in some fashion, on the uke. They've done about a third of the canon thus far.

And for bad Beatles covers, Telly Savalas' "Something" has to stand near the top of the list as an utter atrocity. :)

I HAVE UNCOVERED ABSOLUTE BLASPHEMY.
A good friend of mine showed me this a few weeks ago, knowing I'd absolutely HATE it. She knows me too well, I do. Madly so. I know you all will too. Feast your eyes on
Hello Goodbye by the JONAS BROTHERS. It's terrifically horrid and cringe worthy to the extreme, so if there are any young-ears in the room, I would suggest they leave the premises; their hearing may never recover. Wink


I also heard these posers cover Drive My Car. They failed at that too. I NEVER got into them even though I am their target age.
My mind is far away, off in Pepperland…
I'm a girl, don't be confused by my name.
