This March, we pit 64 Beatles covers against each other in what we call Moptop Madness.
Yesterday’s winners: The Black Keys, “She Said She Said” and Teenage Fanclub, “The Ballad of John and Yoko”
For our first weekend set – yes, these contests don’t end with Friday – we have some unusual genre pairings. In ring number one, Aretha Franklin’s soulful “Eleanor Rigby” butts heads with K.J. Denhert’s folksy “Ticket to Ride.” Then, in ring two, Laibach’s industrial “One After 909” challenges Al Green’s smooth “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”
Listen to each pairing below, then vote for your favorite. For added sway, try to convince others to vote your way in the comments. Voting closes in 24 hours.
Aretha Franklin – Eleanor Rigby
K.J. Denhert – Ticket to Ride
Laibach – One After 909
Al Green – I Want to Hold Your Hand
