Under The Covers: Other Artists Covering Beatles Songs: ‘I’m A Loser’- Eels. One of my favorite songs on Beatles For Sale- a John Lennon song. When I hear this song I often think back to the mid-80’s the first year I was teaching. At the end of the year the high school had a talent show and one of the students -at least to me stole the show with a cover of “I’m A Loser’- since I don’t have his version to play- here is the 2005 cover by Eels from the Sixteen Tons album. Eels is actually singer-songwriter Mark Everett.
