Damn it, I forgot I made that… a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I was annoying everyone with a kazoo and for some reason I decided to record Yellow Submarine with it to get it out of my system. (It was a long time ago, I don’t remember…)

You were behind that monstrosity?! a-hard-days-night-john-7 a-hard-days-night-george-10

Nope, my ears survived. They thought it a great lard* and frankly, so did I. a-hard-days-night-john-6 

As Sir George Martin said, life just ain’t worth living if you haven’t a sense of humour. (Okay, I paraphrased a bit.) 

 

*Edit: Curse ye auto-correct, I meant ‘larf’! Don’t ye like my Lennonisms? a-hard-days-night-john-7

I find this to be an odd cover of Dig A Pony , but I kinda like it because my style of playing is very similar (irregular rhythms 😀 )

That cover was posted before, I think by @Joe, in a good light.

OMG: without a doubt, hands down, the worst cover ever. BECAUSE not only are the vocals horrendous (totally wrong voice for this song) but the visual effects are vomitorious.

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

Just utterly dreadful, but officially approved, and currently top 10 in various worldwide charts. A travesty.

Dear god, that’s atrociously abysmal of the worst nature. The vocals are just unlistenable in how they have been affected, the backing vocals are cheesily ghastly and the way parts of the music track drop out for effect are laughable.

I did have a fear that John’s voice was going to be appear tho.

That thought frightened me too, especially as the opening piano sounds like John’s.

Just a car crash of a cover though. Truly as bad as it gets.

Very well played but a bit unconventional:

A dull cover with a weird vocal.

I almost put this in the “Turn it up or down” thread, but I’d forgotten just how dreadful it was…

If I don’t compare it to the original, I have to admit I really like this song.
