Help! Yourself To These 7 Beatles Covers
The Beatles and iTunes have come together. Apple founder Steve Jobs commented, “It has been a long and winding road to get here…we are now realizing a dream we’ve had since we launched iTunes ten years ago.” We weren’t content to celebrate with elaborate puns (sadly, Lucy In the Sky With iTunes just didn’t work), so we’re honoring the ability to download the legendary Liverpool foursome (legally) by showcasing some of the most recent pop star covers. Jump below to hear everyone from Sara Bareilles to the Jonas Brothers taking a crack at the Fab Four’s hits.
Michael Jackson – “Come Together” It only makes sense that MJ would cover The Beatles, seeing as in 1984 he purchased the publishing rights to their catalog.
Sara Barielles – “Oh Darling” The cover was recorded live in Abbey Road studios.
Fiona Apple – “Across The Universe” This famous cover was featured on the Pleasantville soundtrack.The Jonas Brothers – “Drive My Car” Joe took lead vocals on this cover, performed live at the White House to honor Sir Paul McCartney.
Maroon 5 – “If I Fell” Adam Levine performs this live cover accompanied only by an acoustic guitar.
Glee – “Hello Goodbye”
This cover was from season one’s “Hell-O” episode and performed by the beloved faux high school choir New Directions.
