This March, we pit 64 Beatles covers against each other in what we call Moptop Madness.
Yesterday’s winners: Bob Dylan, “Something” and Spiers & Boden, “Run for Your Life”
Some strong contenders today, folks. First, it’s a battle of beauty when Smokey Robinson’s voice in “And I Love Her” takes on Jake Shimabukuro’s ukulele in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Then, things get uglier as Neil Young’s roaring “A Day in the Life” butts heads with Cotton Mather’s trippy “Don’t Bother Me.”
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.
Smokey Robinson – And I Love Her
Jake Shimabukuro – While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Neil Young – A Day in the Life
Cotton Mather – Don’t Bother Me
