Michael Jackson covering "Come Together." Not a bad cover, but I'm experiencing a bit of cognitive dissonance with the combination of Beatle song, hip thrusts and vinyl pants.

Also: Sean spotting.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Reminds me of the Come Together cover by J-LO and Mary J Blige. Not sure what is worse, their rendition or their wardrope.

Pretty bad rendition, but honestly, I really like the organ and guitar at the start.

In light of last night's performance, The Guardian picks some of the best and worst Beatle covers. [x-posted to the best Beatles cover thread]

Just believe that someone somewhere who heard that went and found the Beatles original, discovered talent, and is now listening to Pepper blazing out with a smile on their face.

Its all we have.

First and foremost, I'm a fan of the harder rock variety but still a huge Beatles nut.  Right now, a band named Koritni is dominating my iPod.  They originate from down under but are currently spending a lot of time in France (where they're gaining a lot of popularity) and the continent.  They've got a cover of Got To Get You Into My Life on iTunes (which I liked).  The video is from some bar/club and is fan-shot.  The sound quality isn't that great, but...

Sandy Farina's cover of Strawberry Fields Forever on the movie Sgt. Pepper. Not a bad version, just lacks the natural quality of John on the original.a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

No, no, don't apologize. It's in the so bad it's good category.

I can't find a link for a video, but the band Atom And His Package (known for tongue-in-cheek covers at times) has a track called P.P. (doo-doo) which is a cover of Polythene Pam, followed by someone starting to sing (off key) "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" at which point Atom says "shut up" and the song ends. I can't call it good, but it's good in a bizarre way.

The Michael Jackson cover of "Come Together" was remarkably straight -- to the extent that it worked, all thanks should go to the genius of Paul & John.

It puts me in mind of an interesting imaginary cover:  Prince doing "Come Together"...
