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

Yesterday’s winners: Sufjan Stevens, “What Goes On” and Junior Parker, “Tax Man”

We’re all over the place today. In ring one, the Bobs’ a cappella “Helter Skelter” goes head to head with Ike & Tina Turner’s raving “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.” In ring two, Gomez’s far-out “Sun King” undertakes a mystical battle with Sukilove’s equally far-out “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. The first pairing was just horrid. I can’t stand either of them. I voted for Ike & Tina, though, just because I didn’t want to skip a round, but really, I loathe them both.

    Frankly, Sukilove’s take on “Love You To” is the only song posted today that I was able to get through. I made it up to the vocals in “Sun King” but it lost me at that point, and the other two barely got ten seconds betweeen them. This is just a bad day for this, I think.

  2. I say what Totz the Plaid said. To make it more interesting, press play on all 4 at the same time!
