I found this really good clip of While My Guitar Gently Weeps played on a Korean Gayageum. It's pretty amazing and check out some of her other videos including COme Together below

Even though he sticks firmly to the Beatles sound, I still find him amazing...

Here's a couple of ordinary guys, non-famous (as far as I know) doing a nice rendition of Eight Days A Week in a subway station:

Twins who front a band called Blac Rabbit, @Pineapple Records. While not exactly famous, nor are they exactly unknown. That video went viral when they posted it on Facebook. Necko posted another video of them doing Beatles on the subway, while I'm pretty sure a song or two from their debut EP (released last December) was posted in the "What Are Listening to..." thread.

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

These guys are good, thanks to Ron Nasty for connecting my post with Necko's. It's amusing what these guys say after they play "All My Loving " and are about to play "Love Me Do " --

""We've got one more for you guys, and then you can return to your quiet, Beatles-less subway rides home..."

Dubliner Jonathon Ng, formerly known as The Eden Project, now simply as EDEN, released two new songs ahead of an upcoming tour/album/something (?). Back in the old days it would have been called a single, but it's two new songs in the age of streaming... blue-meanie Anyway, were it a single, Nowhere Else (the other new song) would probably be the a-side, while this interesting cover would probably be the b...

COMMEMORATIVE POST

Audacious version from 1968, taking the lyric from third person to first: "I'm Eleanor Rigby ...":

Paul sent Jerry Wexler an acetate of this a few weeks before it the single release suggesting it might be a good song for Aretha. It was:

From 1972, her version rolls around the "Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried..." as a gospel call:

Bonus tracks:

A 1970 bossa nova outtake not realesed until 2007.

A storming live version of Eleanor Rigby  from 1971 recorded for her Fillmore West live album:

The Grip Weeds doing The Inner Light .  I like it because they stay true to the original while putting their own spin on it.  I also like it because The Inner Light must be one of the least-covered Beatles songs.

I got a good chuckle for this parody:

The music itself is also really good too, which is why I'm putting it in this thread and not another one.

Just stumbled across the first release by The Hot Chocolate Band on Apple in 1970, a wonderful reggae version of Give Peace A Chance . John liked this cover too and gave them the permission to release it:

Hard to believe that these are the same guys who did You Sexy Thing six years on from this!
