I wish they had made a cover of Too Much Monkey Business in the early days.

A weird concept to think of I guess but are there any songs by other artists that you wish were either covered by The Beatles or perhaps used to inspire one of The Beatles own work?

Got it

 

Mine are probably going to be considered a bit weird 

 

this probably looks weird but I just wish The Beatles had this chorus . . so not so much a cover as much as I wish they had written it first 

 

and then this song 

 

of course this song . .  (1968)

 

another weird one . . the melody is based on Pachelbel's cannon 

 

More songs

Empire of the Sun - "Walking on a Dream"

Empire of the Sun - "Alive"

Oasis - "Wonderwall"

KC & The Sunshine Band - "Please Don't Go" 

 

Badfinger - "Baby Blue", "No Matter What", "Maybe Tomorrow", but definitely "Without You"

 

Harry Nilsson - "Without Her" . . I've always looked at this as a sequel to "For No One"

 

Also "She Sang Hymms Out Of Tune"

 

Bobby Caldwell - "Open Your Eyes"

 

 

Cher - "Bang Bang" (1966)

 

Now to make this even weirder 

 

Alice Deejay - "Better Off Alone" 

 

Cascada - "Everytime We Touch" (it's probably hard to hear this song without her voice but I think the lyrics would be great for a Paul McCartney led track)

I don't know if I could come up with an exact album of songs, but I've always wondered what a Beatles-covering-Led Zeppelin album would sound like. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7 Also, speaking of Beatle/Zeppelin covers, I've already heard some bootlegs of Led Zeppelin playing Beatles tunes/covers at concerts (Twist And Shout and From Me To You come to mind), and they were just awesome!  a-hard-days-night-george-9

Now that I think of it, that album would probably sound hilarious considering how incredibly un-Robert Plant-like their voices are. a-hard-days-night-george-10

And maybe the cover would look like this:

Save the last dance for me - Ben E King and The Drifters

What  a classic! I wish they'd done it...I guess they were quite fond of it given that they did a cover (parody?) of it during the Get Back sessions, and John produced Harry Nilsson's album which had that song there..

 

O sweet moon, I thank thee for thy sunny beams...

Yes! I always thought it was sort of a Paulish vocal thing. I can totally picture him beltin' it out. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 

Wot ye lookin at? Half of what I say is meaningless... but I say it just to fill the other half with Beatlerubbish. Too fab four you, sorry

I can't pick one, but I will say that I'd like to hear The Beatles cover anything by The Rolling Stones and or The Beach Boys. Those were my 3 favorite bands when I was really young. If I had to pick one song from each to hear them cover, it would have to be Jumping Jack Flash and Wouldn't It Be Nice.

I think it's really weird that Led Zeppelin would choose those songs to cover instead of a song like Helter Skelter or I Want You (She's So Heavy). It reminds me of how Train (AKA those guys who sang Soul Sister and Stars Of Jupiter among other pop rock numbers) did a cover of the entire Led Zeppelin II album, but the funny part is that they actually do a fairly good job on it (not nearly as good as Led Zeppelin themselves, but very impressive). Just the idea of a Train, a pop rock band covering Led Zeppelin, a Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band is as far fetched as N*Sync doing a cover of War Pigs or One Direction doing a cover of the entire A Night At The Opera album.
