227 Yesterday - Ray Charles (The Beatles)

I can't believe it's not on the list! The cover is so much better than the original, after listening to this version I finally understood what is the song about.

Way better than the original! Much more sad and dramatic than The Beatles version. Ray Charles really expresses the meaning of the lyrics. - saaarsdej
