    I love this Beatles cover. I've heard on the radio several times since I am Sam. There are a few other covers on the soundtrack I like, but this is by far my favorite. Anyone else feel the same way?

    I like the Eddie Vetter cover "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away". Those are the only two songs I bought that CD for, but some of the others are pretty good, not all of them are to my liking. "Don't let me down" is good too, can't remember who did that cover though.

    I'm home today doing some painting and spun this album earlier. It is very good... Many nice cuts.

    Yeah, that's cool, along with the Eddie Vedder number that John mentioned (kind of a rote reading, but that's Ok with Beatles stuff...perfect as it is. [​IMG] )
    The best Blackbird cover I've ever heard is Crosby,Stills & Nash's from their box set, pretty amazing.

    This thread seems to be getting swaying into a "fave Beatles cover" thread, so I figured I'd chime in with my own weird-ass cover choice (not a "favorite," technically, but certainly one of the most unique) -- Slovenia's own neo-fascist band, Laibach, and their cover of the entire album Let It Be. Many of the songs have been twisted almost beyond recognition (listening to "Get Back" and "I've Got A Feeling" mutated into goose-stepping dirges is somewhat unsettling, to say the least), and curiously, "Let It Be" is the only song not covered on the album, but the grand irony of the Beatles being covered by a group of Balkan pro-totalitarians is something to behold.
