  • Vote for your favourite cover version and tell us a bit about why you made your selection. (The selections are listed in release order.)
  • Note: This is our final installment (although I did miss one from early on, which I will post next week). For the following and subsequent weeks, I have a few notable "Two-Artist Shootouts" from the same time period to post that may be of interest. Stay tuned…

Had to go with George here, even though it's not a Benson album I'd choose to listen to very often.

I vote for Benson on this I love this Beatles classic and I have it by others as well as the fab four

I like hearing Harrison's song from the female perspective -- there's something about the role reversal that's inviting. I like Benson, of course, and do concede his version is better from a purely musical standpoint; however, I'm voting for my favourite here. Cocker's singing style has never appealed to me and at this late age, safe to say I'll never warm to it.
