Top Ten Covers of Beatles Songs that Were Actually Performed Better Than the OriginalBritgirl I like the Beatles! I do! But to be honest, these artists who covered their songs breathed a new life into them. The Beatles should thank them for it. Be honest, if you think a band or artist made a better job of a Beatles song than the Beatles did, feel free to add. :).
The Top Ten
I'm "being honest", none of these are better than the originals, except that I will concede Joe Cocker is better on the number sung by RINGO. Even though Frank Sinatra is quite possibly the greatest male solo singer of all time, his rendition of Something "honestly" sucks.
Yes. Duane Allman's guitar playing gives it the slight edge on which is better. I would even go as far to say that Pickett does a better job on the vocals than McCartney. - BrianScott01
I just listened to this and there is no way this is better than the OG - judo8alex
Can't believe this isn't #1 in a landslide. My favourite song, my favourite version. - truckturner
This is a much heavier version of this songs it will blow your mind at how well this is done it destroys the original - christangrant
Much as I like some of Harry's work, the Beatles' version is gritty, driving rock, and, in my opinion, far superior.
Beautiful 20-something twins became YouTube stars with their many Beatle covers, and their fame spread to the point where they became the "House Band" at the Cavern Club for several years.
