10 great Beatles covers

                           Adrian Belew started covering this almost as soon as it was out.
                                                              "Free as a Bird"

            love this version of Robert Palmer covering "Not a Second Time"

                    Aimee Mann and her husband Michael Penn's great cover of "Two of Us"

                   I really liked the Hooters version of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"
                             the mandolins sound amazing

     the late Jeff Healey did a great version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" .
 Incredibly, George Harrison and Jeff Lynne sing backing vocals.

 Cheap Trick really does a good job covering Beatle songs.
They have live album out of them performing Sgt Pepper's in its entirety.
                                                         " Day Tripper" 

 I always thought this one was one of the best moments of the whole Live Aid concert.
                                            Elvis Costello "All You Need is Love"

 I was surprised that Hall & Oates pulled this one out for their Unplugged special
Very Good.
                                                  "Don't Let Me Down"

        Jeff Beck never ceases to amaze me. He is one of the best. I love him more than Hendrix.
                          awesome take on  "A Day in the Life"


                  Always liked this crazy one from Adrian Belew "I'm Down"
