Sarah Mclachlan does a very nice version of "Blackbird" -- and I like Aerosmith's take on "Come Together".

Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help From My Friends" of course is a very powerful version of this song.....

 

And of course there are several great performances on THE CONCERT FOR GEORGE of Harrison's best Beatle tunes....

I've got nothing to say, but it's okay.. GOOD MORNING! GOOD MORNING!! GOOD MORNING!!!

An amazing acoustic cover of All You Need Is Love by 11-year old (!!) (when the video was uploaded) Sungha Jung:

That's awesome! I hadn't noticed this until now.

In an earlier thread ("Beatles Elevator Music"), I posted about how I'd heard an awful jazz cover of "A Day In The Life". While searching for said cover on Youtube, I came up with an incredible cover by Jeff Beck (formerly of the Yardbirds).

Check it out:

Let's see, how about a little Canadian artwork: PM Stephen Harper singing With A Little Help From My Friends. And believe me, not all Canadians are as crazy as the comments seem. Enjoy!

I liked the cover of With A Little Help.

 

A couple of good, different cover versions

If Fulsom had waited just a couple of years, he could have had the "One beetle screwing another" picture from the back of Ram.

That Jeff Beck cover never ceases to amaze me. God among men when it comes to playing guitar.

The Jerry Garcia Band performing a version of "Dear Prudence". I know Jerry always got the words wrong, but I like Jerry's expansive take on this.

Since I mentioned the King's Singers in another thread I feel the strong urge to share this incredible listening experience with you.

They are one of the most famous and successful a cappella groups in the world and legendary in their precision and humour.

People unfamiliar with "counter tenors" might feel irritated by the very high male voice at times, but you might get used to it!

Enjoy!!

and, of course, Yesterday

I can't stop, one more:

Brilliant! I especially like And I Love Her and Honey Pie. Totally suited to this kind of performance. The madrigal is inventive, too.

They remind me of the Spinners (the liverpool ones not detroit). I actually like that kind of music as its interesting to how they use just their voices yet come up with some fascinating and fun sounds.

I love this cover version of one of my favourite Beatles songs, "Cry Baby Cry". Wanted to share it with you, enjoy it if you can. J.L R.I.P

 

The Norwegian band Seven won a cover song competition with this version of the eminent "Cry Baby Cry" - run by EMi Records, the Norwegian paper Dagbladet and Norwegian radio P3, together with 4 others out of a total 250 bands. Seven has released a total of five albums.

 

Listen to it!

I was never a huge fan of that song in the first place, but I think that's a good interpretation of it.

King's Singers did many a cappella versions.

 

I like this version by Kalkapela of Till There Was You

Click on track 5. It's epic. LOL!!

 

And check this. This is a fantastic Mexican duet and today a student told me they do a Blackbird version. Her voice is perfect for the song.

Yes, nice version of Blackbird (I'm focusing on the guitar).

The Chevy Chase "Let It Be" sounds like the Chipmunks! That'll be fun to play at Christmas. I'd never heard that album; some of the other tracks are good too!
