I genuinely don't believe you. I think you don't want to like anything the beatles did, for whataver reason. Probably partly something to do with the type of personality that finds objectivism appealing.

Perhaps. It may be because Yellow Submarine is quite possibly the most annoying song ever, though.

Over the weekend I will find the ten most annoying songs ever and post them here.

Edit: OH wait, it's Sunday already isn't it...lol. OK, over the course of the day of the sun I will find the 10 most annoying songs ever and post them here.

I'm all for this- as long as it's annoying covers of good songs, or good covers of annoying songs. Possibly annoying covers of annoying songs. Anything by Alvin and the Chipmunks will be considered a violation of the "Don't be intentionally annoying" community guideline.

Well that song is from a 60's animated movie soundtrack... you probably never heard the B-Side of the 45 version of "Let It Be" which is pretty obnoxious... You Know My Name.
and this extended version on youtoobe even more so.
Here's a decent Beatles Song . . . covered by Jeff Beck and Neil Young and the Beatles.

George Harrison's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3RYvO2X0Oo&feature=relatedWhile My Guitar Gently Weeps[/url] covered by A Pick Up Band including George's son Dhani... with a few hot licks tossed in.

Sublime even did a cover to this song. My drum corps played it as their ballad last year it was epic.

I'm a fan of Harry Nilsson and had never heard the Dylan cover.

Tonight I watched Austin City Limits and they had The Civil Wars performing
and they really killed it Live. They did a great cover of Billy Jean.

No covers, but also on ACL was The Punch Brothers. They're a Bluegrass band
who essentially extend the boundaries of the genre and they really cook.
Impressed enough to just order 2 CDs from Amazon.
