The Beatles cover of the day is “Yesterday” by Ray Charles. “Yesterday” written by Paul McCartney is one of the most covered songs ever- I have seen various figures but I will go with 2200 different covers. Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Willie Nelson, Marvin Gaye, Neil Diamond are among the artists who have covered it- everyone has covered “Yesterday” from the greats to lame ass artists like Kenny G and his brother Michael Bolton, Liberace covered “Yesterday.” Bob Dylan who once made critical comments about the song- recorded it with the help of Beatle George- but the Dylan version is still unreleased. My favorite interpreter of Beatles songs is the great Ray Charles. Ray Charles could sing anything- he’d get my vote for the pound for pound being the greatest singer of all time. Ray Charles version of “Yesterday: was released as a single in 1967 and went to #25 on the Billboard Hot 100.
