11: Beatles Covered b/w I Don't Love, Want, or Need You!

Side A: Covers of Beatles songs (recorded 6/11/1993) I would record another covers mix of Beatles songs in 2003.
  1. The Mamas & Papas: "I Call Your Name" is a great cover of a good Lennon/McCartney song, a song which the Beatles made a mediocre recording of.
  2. Aerosmith: "I'm Down"
  3. The Deighton Family: I found this cover of "Taxman" when I was a DJ on WERS' World Music show The Gyroscope.
  4. Phil Collins: "Tomorrow Never Knows"
  5. Joe Cocker [live at Woodstock 1969] "With a Little Help from My Friends", arguably the most famous Beatles cover ever.
  6. Billy Joel [live in the USSR] "Back In The USSR"
  7. Jeff Healey Band: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
  8. World Party: this is a note-for-note, exact Xerox duplicate of the original "Happiness is a Warm Gun". I read somewhere that World Party frontman Karl Wallinger even owns a recording console from Abbey Road?
  9. Nina Simone: "Here Comes The Sun"
Side B: Breakup songs (recorded 8/5/1993)
  1. I'm Not Your Man: Tommy Conwell & The Young Rumblers
  2. Hit The Road Jack: I always loved the female backup singers on this Ray Charles song. One of the best things about the Norman Jewison biopic Ray (starring Jamie Foxx) is the prominent role backup singer Margie Hendricks (Regina King) plays in the movie.
  3. Tainted Love: Soft Cell
  4. Family Man: The best Hall & Oates song which does not appear on their Greatest Hits CD.
  5. Don't Come Around Here No More: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
  6. Is She Really Going Out With Him? Joe Jackson
  7. Suspicious Minds: Elvis Presley
  8. Superman: R.E.M.
  9. Kiss This Thing Goodbye: Del Amitri
  10. Hey Hey What Can I Do? is my favorite Led Zeppelin song. Well, Top 5 for sure.
  11. Missing You: John Waite
