This March, we pit 64 Beatles covers against each other in what we call Moptop Madness.

Yesterday’s winners: David Bowie, “Across the Universe” and Booker T. and the M.G.s, “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”

Round Two continues with two more fearsome battles. You all liked the Black Keys’ “She Said She Said” and Aretha Franklin’s “Eleanor Rigby,” but only one can win. Ditto for Al Green’s “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and Teenage Fanclub’s “The Ballad of John and Yoko.”

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.

  1. I LOATHED Teenage Fanclub’s cover. I also hated the APPROACH Aretha took (you really should’ve gone with her “Let It Be” since she at least kept at that one with the right emotion…)
