Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

^That was a nice one! Through the other Christmas song you posted I discovered the weeklings and eventually this cover of It Won't Be Long:

The vocal performance is just stunning, in my opinion. For example, the very beginning sounds just like John, I mean literally like John! I just love this cover.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Dr. Pepper's Jaded Hearts Club Band - an impromptu band made up of, among others, Miles Kane (Last Shadow Puppets), Matthew Bellamy (Muse), Ilan Rubin (Nine Inch Nails), Sean Payne (Zutons), and Chris Chester (Jet) - perform a Beatles set at the 40th birthday party of Jamie Davis at Pour Vous in Hollywood on 28 September:

Shame it's only extracts, and I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye out for the full unedited performance.

This appears to be the only song that's out there in full... so far:

I always feel a little weird about posting in this thread, because my favorite Beatles covers are not objectively "the best," I'm sure. I guess I always feel odd about classifying music as "best" or "worst" because art is subjective by its very nature. 

Anyway, here's the late Pat DiNizio doing For No One

I appreciate them doing this, but in my oh so humble opinion, a cover should offer a different spin, rather than merely try to emulate/copy.

American group Aqueous' jaw-dropping live 12-minute version of Strawberry Fields Forever. Pretty straight, though impressive, cover to begin with, before it develops into a long musical exploration of its themes:

Strawberry Fields Forever - Canyon Jam

Throwback to our take on 'Strawberry Fields Forever' by The Beatles at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre.

Posted by Aqueous on Thursday, January 25, 2018

(a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Think you may like it, @Beatlebug.)

And here's another James Taylor, performing George's If I Needed Someone in Syracuse on 6 February 1970:

And, just so it's here, so people don't have to hunt it out, here's @TheWalrusWasBrian pick of Yes' recording of Every Little Thing:

These two guys are performers in the subways of New York City. They are pretty damn good. The name of their group is Blac Rabbit. Here they are doing All My Loving and Love Me Do
