Actually, I agree with Gerell. I like Jim Carrey's demented "I Am The Walrus," Goldie Hawn's "A Hard Day's Night", and love Sean Connery's recitation of "In My Life" - particularly considering James Bond's derogatory comments in Goldfinger.
"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
I like the '69 Beatles cover of the '62 Beatles Love Me Do.
Pauls covers on Broad Street are woeful.

The all tracks of Roberta Flack's Let It Be abum are very bad covers.
I think it's a matter of taste. I haven't bought the album, but I really liked the sampling on YouTube:
What the topic title says.
This thread is dedicated to cover songs performed by bands and artists who you don't traditionally associate with the Beatles. The jazz, blues, punk, country and metal versions. Or whatever else is floating in the ether.
I'll start with two songs performed by one of my favourite artists, Vince Guaraldi. He's best known as the pianist who gave life to all those Charlie Brown TV specials in the late 60s to mid-70s (until his death in 1977). He had 2 songs which he often played live and also committed to record. And here they are:
E is for 'Ergent'.
I don't know if anyone would really consider it "unconventional" but I really enjoy Vanilla Fudge's covers of Ticket To Ride and (especially) You Can't Do That which says a lot since I can't usually stand covers of The Beatles.
It won't let me embed them for whatever reason but oh well. If you're curious you can just look it up on YouTube.
"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been.. I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene.. Banjos! Banjos! All the time, I can't forget that tune.. and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
Do I even dare to click on that? Won't I get nightmares?
Jazz-fusion guitarist Larry Coryell has a thing for the Beatles - he did a cover of "Something" and inserted a melodic quote from "Eleanor Rigby" into his "Right On Y'all" solo. He plays on this jazz cover of "Tomorrow Never Knows" from Steve Marcus's 1969 album.
I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
Well, I think Beatles on steel drums counts as unconventional.
