Great Video……. And all those years the Isley Bros took all the credit.

Doesn't matter, as The Beatles' version is better than both.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I think being as objective as is possible that the Beatles versions of Really Got a Hold on Me…..Money……..Please Mr Postman and Twist And Shout outdo the originals.

No doubt "Twist And Shout " does.  I'd say "Boys " also outdoes the original version, and perhaps all 3 of their Larry Williams covers as well.

 

I'm pointlessly musing that it would have been very interesting to have heard them take on a Stones classic……..Not sure they could have made a better version of 'Sympathy for the Devil' but given the challenge and audacity of even attempting such sacrilege they would have pulled out all the stops……John would certainly have killed the vocal.

The closest they came to covering The Stones was "I Wanna Be Your Man ," which, of course, they themselves originally wrote for The Stones.  ahdn_paul_01While we're on the topic, The Who actually DID do two Stones covers: "The Last Time" and "Under My Thumb," neither of which are as good as the originals, of course.

I came across this today and I was quite blown away by how beautiful it was, the playing, arrangement, and tone. (His outfit is the cat's pajamas too a-hard-days-night-john-6)
