Default Worst Beatle Cover

What is, in your opinion, the worst Beatle cover out there? Mine would have to be "Love Me Do" by the Brady Bunch. Pretty bad.

I thought that Nick Cave doing Let It Be from The I Am Sam soundtrack was pretty bad.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned William Shatner's "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" yet.

I definitely agree that Let It Be and Julia from the I Am Sam soundtrack were pretty bad covers...Julia just isn't a song that's meant to be covered, but that's just MHO.

Oh trust me, you're not missing anything.

I also would like to add Julio Iglesias' version of "Something" ( )

Any remake by the Carpenters belongs in the toilet. It was a damn CRIME and a sin what they did to "I'm Happy Just to Dance With You!" That is JMO, but of all the atrocious remakes of Beatle classics, the Carpenters and any reggae version are singularly atrocious.

I never liked Celine Dion in the first place. Her style is too sappy and maudlin for me. As for the rotten remakes on "I Am Sam" (good movie and song choices, but play recordings by the REAL Beatles instead of by folks who can't even carry a tune in a pick up truck)! I think a round of flaming pies is in order for all!
Pies to whoever does that stinky version of "Taxman" for the current commercial. They are really bad!

I also didn't like Elton's 1974 remake of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."

I have to agree with BB - the Carpenters (who I do actually like!) did very poor covers of Beatles' songs - I'm specifically thinking of "Ticket to Ride".

The "ultimate" worst cover is Earth, Wind & Fire's version of "Got To Get You Into My Life". They totallly ruined it.

Yeah, Earth Wind & Fire's remake WAS singularly atrocious.

THE WORST WAS THOSE DAMN CHIPMUNKS BASTARDIZED FALSETTOS OF BEATLE TUNES IN 1964! EVEN WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL I HATED THE WAY THOSE DAMN CARTOON RODENTS IN THEIR GHASTLY, FALSETTO, SOUPED UP VOICES DID ATROCIOUS VERSIONS OF BEATLE TUNES! DARTS AND PIES ARE TOO GOOD FOR WHOEVER VOICED THOSE DAMN CHIPMUNKS! I THINK THE PIE TRUCK WILL DO A ROARING TRADE THERE! I remember when I was younger, so much younger than today I was HIGHLY displeased that anyone would try to fob this crap off instead of getting a REAL BEATLES ALBUM! I HATED THAT CHIPMUNK TRIO THEN AND NOW!

I don't like Sarah McCl. either. She can't carry tunes in a shopping cart. The Brady Bunch's atrocious rendition of "Love Me Do" is an embarrassment.
