    Re: Beatles COVER Song of the Day

    With a Little Help from My Friends

    Here’s a live cover of the Joe Cocker version - Tom Keifer covering With a Little Help from My Friends Live on "The Way Life Goes" 2014 Tour at Ziggy's By The Sea in Wilmington NC September 20th 2014 .

    It’s a great cover, but probably only notable because Kiefer’s the singer/guitarist for the band Cinderella.

    But it’s actually astonishing to note that this song still kicks butt in a live setting 45 years after Joe Cocker set the world on fire with it. Lennon/McCartney - They sure were a great songwriting team, weren’t they?

    At last, a ukulele version.

    You know you wanted it.

    Orquestro Ouro Preto
    merges the Joe Cocker version with the original Beatles arrangement in what may be the best orchestra performance I’ve heard of this tune.

    International jazz a cappella group Accent bills itself as “Six Guys, Five Different Countries. One Sound”. Hell, I still marvel at the technology that allows this sort of “virtual” group to happen.

    Speaking of ukulele, here's Feng E playing a cover of Let It Be.

    Now, I really enjoy covers that put a different spin on a Beatles song, so I really like this “sponsored” cover by “Dodie”. She accompanies herself on ukulele (and doubletracks some of the background vocals).

    I love its intimate vibe.

    So . . . here’s another a virtual a cappella group, this time 11 singers from 5 countries. It seems to be a one-off by people that just “do” this sort of thing for fun. I know I’ve seen the lead singer, Sonny, in another of these as a guest of the guy that usually does all the voices for barbershop covers. Sonny also does his own four part barbershop arrangements of songs.

    So here’s a version by two dueling Barbershop quartets, Crossroads and Vocal Spectrum, performed live at the Together, We Sing: 2017 Saturday Night Spectacular concert at the 2017 Barbershop Harmony Society International Convention in Las Vegas

    I'm floored by just how many covers of WaLHFMF I've found.

    Shoshana Bean feat. Grace Potter does a great uptempo big band version, without resorting to relying on Joe Cocker’s cover.



    Kyla Jade sang the tune on this year’s live finale of The Voice. She certainly does the song justice, although she’s no Joe Cocker. But this gets so wonderfully more manic the longer the song goes on, that it’s a joyful experience. She placed third overall in the competition.



    These days there seems to be a lot of live recreations of Beatles songs, and this one’s no exception. Get a load of Elephant Revival’s live cover from 2018.





    This cover of the Cocker version by the Spencer Lee Band also kicks some serious butt. I don’t know where they’re from, but they’re currently touring from Quebec to Delaware to the South to California.
