To my knowledge, no one has ever covered this Beatles song. It's understandable -- there are so many textures and sound effects.  I do believe no one has played all the parts, so...that's what I decided to do.  Lots of work. Lots of fun.

I believe every beatles track has been covered at least once if not thousands of times.

Mr Kite from the movie Across The Universe

Even Revolution 9

I can't imagine covering Revolution 9 . It's just so unique I wouldn't even know where to begin. And I'd just like to state for the record that I despise the Across The Universe cover of Mr. Kite. I absolutely hate it. In my opinion, some Beatles songs are easier to be covered and some should just be left in their original state.

You make your own dream.

Come on. That cover is awesome. All the effort put in. I would pay to experience that live. Tho still isnt close to the mayhem, chaos and disturbia of the original. I think John would have been tickled by that. [Insert heart and apple here]

Nice cover, quite meticulous (though I did miss Lennon's exaggerated DUH! sound pronouncing the "d" in "world").

 

Your visuals made me realize that this song could be done by Cirque du Soleil -- imagine, in French!

The version of Revolution #9 which "mithveaen" linked to had interesting and nice sounding instrumentation, but the guy's voice repeating "Numbah NINE... Numbah NINE... Numbah NINE" had a very UNinteresting and annoying voice.

 

Other than Lennon, the only voice I'd like to hear repeating that is Michael Caine.
