This March, we pit 64 Beatles covers against each other in what we call Moptop Madness.
Yesterday’s winners: Joe Cocker, “With a Little Help From My Friends” and José Feliciano, “A Day in the Life”
Today begins the Sweet 16. Sixty-four covers entered. Sixteen remain. Only one will win. Two more covers will be eliminated right here, right now. Will David Bowie’s “Across the Universe” or the Black Keys’ “She Said She Said” prevail? Will Al Green’s “I Want to Hold Your Hand” or Booker T. and the M.G.s’ “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” advance? You decide.
