    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).

    And-
    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?

    That's my fave Beatles cover.

    There's also a hilarious John Hartford cover of "Hey Jude," which I heard once and have never been able to find since.
