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

Yesterday’s winners: Jonathan Coulton, “I Will” and Sonic Youth, “Within You Without You”

Today we stage our final Round Two matchups! And they look to be doozys. First, it’s an all-out shout-off as Ike and Tina Turner’s “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window” goes up against Joe Cocker’s “With a Little Help from My Friends.” Then, things get a wee bit quieter with José Feliciano’s “A Day in the Life” battling Sukilove’s “Love You To.”

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. How much do I hate that tired old Joe Cocker cover? Almost as much as I love Tina’s energetic funk, still fresh 40 years later.

  2. There’s a reason Joe Cocker’s version is a universally-accepted classic!

    On the other side, though, I have absolutely no idea why everyone likes this horrid Jose Feliciano cover so much… Ugh.

  3. Dear TOtz, Jose Feliciano, how in any his Beatles cover, make an incredible job
    and hre is LIVE at the london palladium in 1969, so a more great work!
