30-Day Song Challenge — Cover

I am a big Beatles fan and yet I have to give a lot of credit to Joe Cocker. When it comes to “a song that’s a cover by another artist,” Cocker was, in my opinion, the only performer who could successfully cover, and possibly even improve upon, originals songs by The Beatles.

Probably his most widely recognized cover is “With a Little Help From My Friends,” and that, indeed, is a great cover. But my personal favorite is Cocker’s cover of “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.”

Here are both. You decide.

    I can’t believe you chose Joe Cocker, and that song! The first time I heard it I had to get the album with him singing it! He did a lot of great covers. He had a home in CO near us.

    My teacher shared with me these two songs years ago – I really enjoy both of them

    Oh, cool. You have a Joe Cocker cover for The Letter too, at a pictured link above (from months or so ago) after the opening post.
