Best Covers of Beatles Songs

Obviously no artist or band can or will ever cover the Beatles songs like the real deal but this little lot had a bloody good crack at it.

The Top Ten

1 Let It Be - Jacob & Jackie Evancho

Talented teenager Jacob Evancho sang lead, with the world's premiere up and coming soprano taking "high harmony" behind him; the effect was as if Paul McCartney had David Crosby behind him.

There is no part of this performance that is less than splendid. - BobG

In a concert near Palm Springs, California.

2 I Want You (She's So Heavy) - Coroner

Fantastic cover by a classic Prog-Thrash-Jazz Fusion-Metal band. Check it out, it adds a great punch to the original, very heavy and groovy

This is my favorite song by the Beatles and also this is my favorite cover version. Coroner just developed further the Beatles idea towards a heavier sound. - Metal_Treasure

3 Helter Skelter - Motley Crue
4 Helter Skelter - Aerosmith
5 Come Together - Aerosmith
6 I'm Down - Aerosmith
7 Come Together - Michael Jackson

The Contenders

11 Here Comes the Sun - Ghost
12 Penny Lane - Amen Corner
13 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - Athlete
