I really love this slow country version of Please Please Me by Wyckham Porteous. John originally wrote the song at a much slower tempo than the one we know.

I mean... It's by no means 'the best' cover of I Am The Walrus ... and it isn't really other 'musicians' either...

But it's I Am The Walrus , with walruses!! (first 7 minutes are him finding the sounds... which is amazing)

I liked it! Been hearing a lot of their music the last few months (and new James Bond theme coming soon). She also plays the ukulele. Here's a little bit of I Will from Corden the other night:

Fresh off the press

  

It's good but I think it would be a lot better without the pre-recorded backing track as it's not needed.

my favourites on that list a few posts up are the ones by Bowie, The Breeders, and YMO

whole bunch there I'm not familiar with that I should check out

that one While My Guitar Gently Weeps at #7 is so overrated, everything other than the Prince solo is so BORING
