The Contenders

11 Some Other Guy

It's got the best overall fidelity of their recordings of the song. I think it would have been a good fit on one of the first two albums. - Gg2000

12 Nothin' Shakin'

Originally by 50s rocker Eddie Fontaine. I think this song is kinda underrated. - Gg2000

13 To Know Her is to Love Her

A gender-flipped cover of a song by The Teddy Bears, which was originally written by a young Phil Spector. It's a lovely-sounding ballad. - Gg2000

14 The Hippy Hippy Shake

The Fabs used to play this song a lot in their early days. A group called The Swinging Blue Jeans took notice and recorded their own version; it became the Blue Jeans' biggest hit. - Gg2000

15 Keep Your Hands Off My Baby

Originally by Little Eva- it was her follow-up to "The Locomotion". I read in the Anthology a quote from George basically saying that it was one of those songs that they learned and only performed a handful of times because they got bored with it. - Gg2000

16 Ooh! My Soul

A Little Richard cover. The song was (of course) sung by Paul McCartney, who did all of their Little Richard covers. - Gg2000

17 I Got a Woman

Originally by Ray Charles; to me, however, it sounds more like they're imitating the Elvis Presley version. - Gg2000

18 That's All Right (Mama)

Originally the first Elvis Presley single. I still prefer Elvis' version, but I think the Beatles version is pretty nice. George did a good job of covering the guitar solo. - Gg2000

19 Sure to Fall (In Love with You)

Originally by Carl Perkins. I dig the harmonies on this cover. - Gg2000

20 Honey Don't

This version is different than the Beatles for Sale version in that John sings the lead vocals rather than Ringo. - Gg2000
