Most music fans at some point or another find themselves discovering or delving into the The Beatles. It's hard to think of a band that has held such a long influence on music in such a short time of existence. Their existence also encompasses such a wide range of sounds that for many a Beatles fan it becomes impossible to pick one album or one song as a favorite.
Which is precisely what occurred recently over at Cover Me Songs. The cover songs blog recently tasked its staff (including yours truly) with picking their favorite cover of their favorite Beatles song. Myself and the rest of the staff found this to be a very difficult choice, but we managed to come up with quite a diverse list. So if you fancy yourself a Beatles fan, head on over to Cover Me Songs and check it out, including my pick of Waylon Jennings' cover of "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)." Yes, that exists.
Here's the full list:
Grandaddy - "Revolution"
Al Green - "I Want to Hold Your Hand"
801 - "Tomorrow Never Knows"
Humble Pie - "Rain"
Stereophonics - "Don't Let Me Down"
Sonic Youth - "Within You Without You"
Paul Westerberg - "Nowhere Man"
Waylon Jennings - "Norwegian Wood"
Tapes 'n Tapes - "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"
Marc Ribot- "Happiness Is a Warm Gun"
