I was at a bar with a live band last weekend and they did a cover of the Beatles' "Get Back" that was really awesome. The song's been in my head all week, so I decided to go through some old Beatles songs. Damn there are some good ones!

So what's your favorite?

I can't list just one.

Help
Revolution
Get Back
I Saw Her Standing There

I've heard the classic version. Is there a second "Beatles" version?

This one is just McCartney (well maybe Ringo too). We are probably talking about the same thing song though. Starts out about like the Beatles version, but then breaks into mostly orchestra/instrumental type stuff. Whole thing is about 9 minutes long.

I love the version of Something that McCartney plays on the Ukeleyle on the Concert for George. It is a great homage to Harrison and also John Lennons mom.

Well, let me add this:

The "Let It Be" movie version of "The Long and Winding Road," just Macca on the piano, sans the Phil Spector shit. Carries so much more of an emotional impact stripped down like that.

I had to check on amazon to make sure, but they have re-released LIB w/o Spector's input, under the title Let It Be...Naked

A song we can all relate to..(except Gochiefs)

The tax man

Let me tell you how it will be
Theres one for you, nin'teen for me

Cause I'm the tax man
Yea I'm the tax man

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all

Cause I'm the tax man
Yea I'm the tax man

If you drive a car-car I'll tax the street
If you try to sit-sit I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk I'll tax your feet
Tax man

Well I'm the tax man
Yea I'm the tax man

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more

Cause I'm the tax man
Yea I'm the tax man

Now my advice for those who die (tax man)
Declare the pennies on your eyes (tax man)

Cause I'm the tax man
Yea I'm the tax man

And you're working for no one but me
(Tax man)

Helter Skelter. It got a bad rap because of the whole Mason thing but it's a good song.
