This falls into the "bizarre" category.

Was listening to one of Geoff Lloyd's podcasts on Absolute 60s, and he mentioned this attempt by Stevie Wonder to do a cover of "She Loves You" at Outside Lands. But he had to give his band the chords, and then realized he didn't know the words to the verses.

Coulda been a cool cover. I like his version of "We Can Work It Out."

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Joe Cocke- With A Little Help From My Friends Lacks the quality of the original. Sounds like crap.

I think it's way better than the original.

Personally i think both are pretty ordinary songs. If forced to choose i'd go for Ringo's based solely on its shorter running length and that little bit where Ringo's drums become the focus.

Independent article on five bad and five good Beatles covers.

Didn't know Bono had sung lead on a cover of 'I Am The Walrus'. Sounds like a bad cover of Oasis's cover of the same song.

I hate them both. Now I think of it, I dislike most Beatles covers.

Electronic avant-garde stuff from the mid'70s. It's "interesting". Bizarre, definitely; bad, maybe.

A friend recently sent this to me. Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus attempting to be unconventional and bizarre but only succeeding at being bad.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Richard Cheese does a pretty good job of bringing everyone down to the piano lounge... he roasts a lot of crummy rock, AB/CD and just everyone, but Beatles... well whatever.

 I like Yngwies hack at Magical Misery Tour, whoever did that version with him on guitenbox, it roks at least.

Of course Steve Howe did a nice version of Strawberry Fields I think, years back, with the pre-Yes band Yesterday. Yes!

But that was good, nice guitar work, not even really unconventional. Should be in the 'good, swell and decent' covers thread probably. Sorry.
