MusicRadar's Beatles Week: The best Beatles covers you've never seen!
Last week, MusicRadar published their celebration for the release of Beatles' remastered catalogue with special Beatles-related articles. One of their bright idea is the collection of Beatles' cover from all over the world!
That sounds really neat and interesting. Almost all of the listeners are really soaked up with the original version by the Fab Four from every radio channels you can find. But with lots of artists doing the Fab Four's cover version every years, there certainly be some version that even the biggest Beatles fan might find interesting. Here are some selected examples from the MusicRadar.
Maggie Wong & The Jungle Lynxs - From Me To You
Back in 1964, Paul suggested that this 'McCartney/Lennon' (yes, it's the right way around) number one from 1963 could even be rearranged "as an old ragtime tune". What he didn't suggest was it could be twanged to high heaven by Malaysia's finest exotic pop sensations of the time. Fact: In 1966, Maggie Wong toured Malaysia and Singapore with a show called 'GO GO SHOW'. How cool is that? - Mike Goldsmith
Munetaka Inoue & The Sharp Five - She Loves You
Off to Japan! Rather than a 'Group Sounds' (the name for the Beatles-sounding combos to emerge from Japan in the late Sixties) cover, we've gone for an 'eleki' (the name for the Japanese Ventures-style surf/rockabilly craze of the early Sixties) take on one of The Beatles' greatest early singles. Dig this? Read Julian Cope's Japrocksampler for info or just listen to all of Inoue's Beatles covers album Ding Dong! here. Yow! - Mike Goldsmith
