Best Beatles Remakes

Any music fan will have their own list, but here's mine, in no particular order:

"You Wont See Me" – Anne Murray.
Playful and fun. Better than the original!

"Got to Get You into My Life"- Earth Wind and Fire.
Snappy R&B, great guitar solo. I never get sick of hearing this one.

"Ticket to Ride"- Carpenters.
Karen and Richard's 1973 version is amazing, turning this upbeat pop smash into a slow boil heartbreaker. Another testimony to Richard's arranging skills and Karen's vocal power.

"We Can Work it Out"- Chaka Khan.
Searing vocals, red hot instrumentals. Makes Stevie Wonder's version look like warm milk.

"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" - Elton John.
As freaky as the original.
