Once upon a time ago, I was a fan of their music (I know).  Even I thought that their version of Hello Goodbye was pretty horrendous.  Drive My Car wasn't much better.

This video isn't exactly weird or bizarre, and a matter of fact, it's not even the Beatles, just John.  It's a version of Imagine sung by the girl Connie Talbot, who impressed Simon on Britain's Got Talent.  I like Connie, she sings really awesome, she's very cute, and I try to like this version, but to me, it just sounds like there's something wrong with it.  Maybe a little too Pop music sounding, maybe she's trying too hard, or maybe because this version got more views than the real Imagine.  Whatever it is, I can't bring myself to like this versiona-hard-days-night-john-4

It's not that it is bad, it's just that seeing Eddie Vedder, known for his hard rocking songs, singing such a sad song. On the fence. But then again I never thought Nirvana would cover Bowie, so what do I know?

Nirvana's cover of The Man Who Sold The World is pretty good. The song Something In The Way is a very soft song and Kurt pulled singing that song very well. Eddie can do softer sounding songs just as well. My favorite example is the song Just Breathe. But I get what you are saying to hearing such strong voices singing quieter tunes.

This Sesame Street parody of Hey Jude "Hey Food" scarred me for a week

And these Kidz Bop versions made me cry in anguish…  Now we know it was Kidz Bop who really broke up the Beatles. LOL just kidding…  But seriously check out these links and be disgusted, I couldn't even get past 17 seconds of I Want To Hold Your Hand and almost choked on Let It Be

Two words: Jonas. Brothers.

I can't believe Paul would pick them to sing Drive My Car in front of the President.
