This falls into the "bizarre" category.

 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I love Richard Cheese! I've had the pleasure of seeing him perform live. He just retired due to health issues. :-(

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

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."

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That's just embarrassing. Know when to leave it alone and move on.

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.

I've always disliked Joe Cocker's version, but that also has a lot to do with the way he pronounces words. That annoys me a lot. Also, I like the tempo of the original better plus it's Ringo!
