So I've finally heard Mrs. Miller! :D Thanks for that. Sounds like she was enjoying herself!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Had I known about them, I would have included them. I grew up on Peanuts, so it would have been perfect. Hell, if I can throw in Looney Tunes covers of the Beatles, I for sure would have gotten Peanuts in there.

Ahahaha, I bought this back in the 90s (also grew up with Peanuts). Might want to avoid She Loves You. It ends on a bum note to end all bum notes, and I remember listening for the first time with a friend and literally rolling on the floor laughing.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 She Loves You was one of the others i would have posted but thought two videos of that material was plenty. Never got to the end of it as i found it to be pretty lame whereas there is a sort of innocent childish sweetness to Do You Want To Know A Secret which kind of fits the song. She Loves You on the other hand needs a bit of emphasis and balls for the song to work

I like the '69 Beatles cover of the '62 Beatles Love Me Do.

Pauls covers on Broad Street are woeful.

I love the many covers they did on those sessions already recorded by themselves in some single or album:
Just to mention a few: Rock N' Roll Music (omitting a verse, but complete) You Really Got A Hold On Me, I'm So Tired (complete - with McCartney in the lead including the gibberish Lennon said at the end of that song), Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (partial, Lennon mockingly in the lead), You Can't Do That (partial), Money (interesting instrumental version). They did so many covers of their old songs although some lasting a few seconds only (i.e Every Little Thing, When I'm Sixty-Four, Back In The USSR). They also did some covers of song that they recorded on BBC (Crying, Waiting, Hoping, Sure To Fall), and even songs that were unreleased either forever or at the moment (Thinking Of Linking, You Know My Name (! - I was surprised to hear this one with vocals; 4 months before they recorded the vocals!!)

Just of curiosity, I went to hear the very infamous William Shatner version of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds...It's an insult! paul-mccartneya-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to...Strawberry Fields.

^^^ Actually, the version of Money (That's What I Want) isn't instrumental, it's just that the lead vocals aren't sung into a microphone, so they're very quiet.

There's a lot of bad Beatles' covers, but Tiffany's 'I Saw Him Standing There' is at the bottom of the barrel in my books:

A capella version of Live And Let Die (and yes, I really did seek that out):

 

 

Not half as bad as I'd expected, I like the arrangement. I just wish they'd varied the syllables... and the dynamics, as opposed to starting loud and getting louder.

 

Edit: Another, Glee-style, with choreography, starting around 5:30:
