    Oh, I don't know...
    My "Big 3"-

    How 'bout Earth, Wind, & Fire doing "Got To Get You Into My Life"? (Verdine White ripping & groovin').

    Also, Aretha Franklin's "The Long & Winding Road"(from Young, Gifted, & Black) is killer(Chuck Rainey on bass...I think).

    Chaka Khan's "We Can Work It Out"...absolutely smokin'! (Gregg Philliganes on synth bass goin' off!)

    The Brothers Johnson have covered "Come Together" on their debut, Lookin' Out For #1...I can't seem to remember too much about(I'll try to re-visit it later today...gotta fire up the ol' turntable).

    BTW, GRP(the Contemporary Jazz label) released an album dedicated to The Beatles...
    Groove Collective does a nice job on "She's So Heavy"...Diana Krall does a nice job on "And I Love Her".

    There's also-
    Motown Meets The Beatles(the classic Motown stars like The Supremes, Temptations, Marvin, Gladys Knight, Edwin Starr, etc).
    Jazz guitarists Wes Montgomery & George Benson(The Other Side Of Abbey Road also have done tribute albums to The Beatles.

    Damn...totally forgot about that one! Kinda in a Reggae-R&B-Funk groove with some very nice jazzy guitar chops by JB.

    No one is gonna mention Tiffany's "I Saw HIM Standing There", huh?
