    At the Royal Variety performance for the Queen Mother, on either side of John's famous "rattle your jewelry" crack, Paul sang the lead on Til There Was You, and then John on Twist and Shout.

    Quite a one-two punch right there.

    Sh#t! I had no idea that was a cover, and I've been listening to it for 45+ years... I just assumed it was Paul's, but then, I've haven't seen The Music Man since 1962 either! LOL!

    I was gonna say Money, because I think The Beatles just own that song -THE definitive version, but now I'm not sure.

    You really do learn something every day... thx

    I really have a bunch, but I gotta pick two:

    #1 You Really Got a Hold On Me-(Smokey Robinson) just love it!
    #2 Roll Over Beethoven- just love George's guitar playing and tone here- it's so clean it's almost brittle, but I love it as it's so naked in your face

    Haha, no problem. I actually learned that when I was searching for the chords for it in this Beatles chord book I have and I couldn't find it in there. After finding online, I learned that it was a cover as well!

    Jeff Beck's version of "A Day In The Life" is killer.
