Comment:

The girlie pop series hits number 9 (number 9, number 9...) with a third collection of female-fronted Beatles covers (plus a few songs inspired by the fab four). I've tried to limit this series within a series to one song per artist, but that Nina Simone cover was too good to pass up -- especially the way she stops the song to scold her keyboard player for his premature fills. A pair of Beatle boots goes out to Thomas Mohr and Greg_D, who both contributed a couple songs. Thanks guys! You want a quiz to win a copy? Name another Beatles' song that Helen Reddy covered (you might let someone else win, P the Swede!). Update: Muzag (not Misfit) is our winner.

ok I do that ;)
this looks stupid and fun at the same time, I suppose 19-20 is on the stupid side but 4-10 on the more fun side

Well, Muzag already won, but I was hoping I could snag acopy by noting that Reddy's "Fool on the Hill" is from the truly misguided film, All This and World War II, which featured footage from the war & a sound track comprising nothing but Beatles covers.

Absolutely marvellous. May I suggest Anita Harris' "Beatles Rhapsody" ( a medley of Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane & All You Need Is Love) & Sylvia "Y Viva Espana" Vrethammer's Carry That Weight for a future volume?

This is indeed wonderful (as per George) and is assembled with your by-now requisite level of cleverness, style and quality. Once my burner issues are resolved, we should really think about doing a more comprehensive trade than the ones that we've done recently.

You guys are all so smart. This is nothing short of terrific. By the way, perhaps you don't know that the John and Paul wrote Let It Be for Aretha Franklin? Her version is very good.

Sweet Apple trax as always, Ion. Funny, that Lee Castle LP has a track I meant to put on my Beatles cover mix, but I forgot about it.

i disappear for two years only to find out you've only made seven of these things in the interim? i'd say it was disappointing, but this is too fucking good.

Congratulations are in order for Misfit for his correct answer to the quiz. A copy also goes out to Jenergy for her knowledge of soundtracks from misguided films. Way to go kids!

Well, I just received my copy today, and I can't begin to say how much I love it. Very hard to pick out just a couple of songs for special commendations, but Holly Cole's haunting "I've Just Seen a Face" and Sergio Mendes' catchily melodic "Norwegian Wood" are what stand out on the first listen. Thanks Moe for sharing this!
