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

“Peacemaker” – Green Day

She Said She Said ” – The Beatles

“Thank You For The Venom” – My Chemical Romance

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:
