With all this talk about Beatles remasters and video games how about this.

What are some of the best cover version of Beatles songs?

I love Richie Havens' versions of Beatles (and Dylan) songs. His most notable are:

STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER, which was played at Woodstock is incredible

HERE COMES THE SUN is something he still performs.

I guess you have to mention Joe Cocker, since he's kind of the ultimate cover song man. Gregg's "Rain" ain't too bad. There's a jamaican duo, Bob & Maria (i think) cover of "Don't Let Me Down" that I stumbled upon that I'm really into.

It's odd, the two greatest musical acts(or at least the most influential) of the 60s, Bob Dylan and The Beatles, are polar opposites when it comes to covers - Bob Dylan's songs are loose structures that lend themselves wonderfully to multiple interpretations, however, The Beatles sound (thanks to George Martin) was often more important to their songs that it makes them sound positively foreign when stripped of it by another band.

Rufus Wainwright's "Across the Universe." It's from the movie "I am Sam," and I like it almost as much as the original.

I am biased but I'll go with Mule's version of 'She Said She Said'.

Also love Aerosmith's version of 'Come Together'.

The Smithereens put out TWO CDs of Beatles covers a year or so ago. Real good job on both!

Edited with links to samples:

of course, there's the cover of Hey Jude by Wilson Pickett, featuring a very well known guitar player

Hendrix probably did the meanest guitar solo on a Beatle song ever recorded (except for Hey Jude, of course) in Day Tripper

Neil Young and Jeff Beck both do great versions of A Day in the Life

in general, I'll take the originals any time, though

Hands down She Said She Said by the Mule but I've also seen them play Helter Skelter and I'm So tired at the Beacon a few Years ago.

I also really dig Dear Prudence by the Jerry Garcia Band on the live album he put out from 91. Lot's of great covers on that one.

I saw the Dead encore with Revolution at my first show. It was awesome. The last year or so before Garcia died, they were playing Rain and I Want to Tell You fairly often.

I've seen some bootleg video of Hendrix playing Sgt. Pepper which is really cool. Supposedly he played it at a show within days of it's release and everyone in the crowd was blown away.

801 Live ~ Tomorrow Never Knows , amazing stuff from a band that to this day very few people ever heard of or know about.

801 Live was released in 1976.

801 was :
Brian Eno ~ Vocals / Synthesizer / guitar
Phil Manzanera ~ guitar
Bill MacCormick ~ bass / vocals
Lloyd Watson ~ slide guitar / vocals
Francis Monkman ~ fender rhodes clavinet
Simon Phillips ~ drums

801 Live is an amazing album. i discovered it around 1979, and i am listening to it right now ( this thread got me thinking, thanks ). if you can find a copy ( long out of print ), get it. great stuff from this very talented all-star line up. wow, this sounds great, haven't put this on in a long time.

Paul McCartney said it was just one or two days after it's release . and i believe Paul was at the show when Jimi played it and he was blown away by how fast he learned it, and how amazing it was.
