What are the best songs covered by the Beatles? What are the best covers of Beatles’ original songs?

My favorite Beatles cover, by quite a ways, is “Twist And Shout “. I could do without “Mr. Moonlight” and others.

As for covers, I enjoy “A little help from my from my friends” by Joe Cocker.

There are too many original Beatles’ songs covered by too many people, to possibly list (isn’t “Yesterday ” the most covered song in history? but be my guest to peruse the list:…..tles_songs)
