I hope everyone will read that title with the irony with which is was intended. Obviously, it's a tongue in cheek lampoon of the many troll threads that pop up. But, it got me thinking... The Beatles are the most covered composers of the last half century. In terms of the actual AMOUNT of songs they may be the most covered of all time. Almost everything they've done has been re-done. I read somewhere that "Yesterday" alone has over a thousand recorded versions. of it. This doesn't include all the indie recordings -- everything from solo bass versions to salsa band versions. Symphony orchestras have played Beatles music. Jazz artists, country artists, you name it. Now ask yourself -- how many Kiss songs have been covered by other artists? Okay, okay, not looking to start a war. But it is amazing to think of the immense scale of McCartney's influence.
