Can You Please Crawl Out Your window, take 6 I believe it is from the Highway 61 sessions, though the Hendrix cover is also brilliant

I've actually been listening a lot to The Rutles, actually. I'm definitely appreciative of the fact that Neil Innes didn't do carbon copies of Beatles songs, and apparently didn't even listen directly to them while composing. That makes the fact that he could come up with a counterpoint of "If I Fell ", for example, just by gut instinct. It's like real magic, isn't it?

My personal favorite is "Cheese And Onions", especially, because of not just how it captures "A Day In The Life " quite well, but the sheer amount of musical jokes in and of itself. The one note ending is an absolute hoot.

I have been listening to 'Dancing Queen' by Abba a lot recently. They released many pop classics, but this is my favourite.

I'd say Hold My Hand is my favourite, because it epitomises early Beatles without really even having a song it copies (sure, a but of inspiration here and there but my point remains)

It's a really, amazingly done song. It can be described as 'pop perfection', imo.

Another song I have been on a kick of recently is the reggae cover of 'Love's A Game' by the British band, The Magic Numbers. They are my favourite co-ed musical quartet and Ringo's a fan. It's my favourite cover of a song by the band. 

 

Here's the original version from their debut album in 2005:

Heard this song yesterday and woke up with it in my head and gosh darn is it a bop

I know I'd heard it before long ago, probably on the radio.

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

These two Waterboys tracks are getting repeated plays at the moment:

First off, from the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco on 4 November, a medley of The Trip to Broadford, Sweet Thing (Van Morrison), Blackbird (Beatles) and You Can't Always Get What You Want (Stones)...

...and this version of Yellow Submarine  Mike broke into in a bar in the Arun Islands when the barmaid wanted And a Bang on the Ear...
