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

Yesterday’s winner: Jake Shimabukuro, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

The second Elite Eight battle looks to be a doozy. Two heavy hitters butt heads when Neil Young’s guitar on “A Day in the Life” challenges Booker T.’s “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” organ. Either could end up taking it all, but only one will make it to the Final Four.

Listen to both songs 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.

Neil Young – A Day in the Life
Booker T. and the M.G.s – I Want You (She’s So Heavy)
