cover of the moment



I love Beatles covers, especially when they are recorded in different languages. Here is my favourite cover of the moment - a Mandarin cover of "I Should Have Known Better", recorded by a singer whom I know next to nothing about, unfortunately. She must have been a Beatles fan, because she recorded an EP solely of Beatles covers. This was supposed to be my contribution for week 15 of Contrast Podcast (Best of Beatles covers!)except I kept procrastinating.

Zhang Xiao Feng - I Should Have Known Better

It's impossible to list every single Beatles cover ever recorded, and I bet many were recorded all over the world at the peak of Beatlemania. The Covers Project lists some of the more well-known recordings, here.

Ever wondered what could be the 'worst Beatles cover' ever recorded? Read results of a 2003 poll, here.

Oh yeah yeah yeah!! I share your love for foreign language Beatles covers, and as you already know, I'm especially pleased when it's performed by a female. So needless to say, I dig this cover more than a pony. Thanks for sharing this great find!

Glad you like it as much as I do! I know what you mean, I also love it when guys cover songs originally sung by a female. It totally transforms the song!

I'm almost tempted to do a second volume of Beatles covers to get this one in!!!
