Once upon a time ago, I was a fan of their music (I know).  Even I thought that their version of Hello Goodbye was pretty horrendous.  Drive My Car wasn't much better.

This video isn't exactly weird or bizarre, and a matter of fact, it's not even the Beatles, just John.  It's a version of Imagine sung by the girl Connie Talbot, who impressed Simon on Britain's Got Talent.  I like Connie, she sings really awesome, she's very cute, and I try to like this version, but to me, it just sounds like there's something wrong with it.  Maybe a little too Pop music sounding, maybe she's trying too hard, or maybe because this version got more views than the real Imagine.  Whatever it is, I can't bring myself to like this versiona-hard-days-night-john-4

Last.fm is killing me with this band called "The Bornagain Beatles" or something like that. I have no idea why last.fm would think people would be satisfied with such crap cover versions.

I don`t know, but Eddie Vedder singing You`ve Got To Hind Your Love Away is bizarre.

Really? I like his version. I disagree when people say it's better than the original, but his version isn't bad in my opinion.

It's not that it is bad, it's just that seeing Eddie Vedder, known for his hard rocking songs, singing such a sad song. On the fence. But then again I never thought Nirvana would cover Bowie, so what do I know?

Nirvana's cover of The Man Who Sold The World is pretty good. The song Something In The Way is a very soft song and Kurt pulled singing that song very well. Eddie can do softer sounding songs just as well. My favorite example is the song Just Breathe. But I get what you are saying to hearing such strong voices singing quieter tunes.

This Sesame Street parody of Hey Jude "Hey Food" scarred me for a week

And these Kidz Bop versions made me cry in anguish…  Now we know it was Kidz Bop who really broke up the Beatles. LOL just kidding…  But seriously check out these links and be disgusted, I couldn't even get past 17 seconds of I Want To Hold Your Hand and almost choked on Let It Be

My friend emailed me this video today. I felt the need to share, but didn't know where to put it. I don't know, maybe we can use this thread for covers that are bad or... have an oddly specific premise.

I really liked that, quite strange tho. Revolution #9?! Looked like from some office conference.
