UNDER THE COVERS: OTHER ARTISTS COVERING BEATLES SONGS: ‘LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS’- ELTON JOHN

The Elton John Band – Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (1974, Pinckneyville  Pressing, Vinyl) - Discogs

Under The Covers: Other Artists Covering Beatles Songs: ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’- Elton John. The John Lennon classic from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band- which was controversial in some circles who took the Lucy- Sky -Diamonds to be L.S.D.- The famous cover by Elton John went to #1 in 1975- the only other Beatles cover that went to #1- [some trivia to tell your friends] the Stars On 45 medley which included eight Beatles songs- if that counts. Also there was a Paul McCartney written tune which went to #1 that The Beatles never recorded- Peter And Gordon’s ‘ A World Without Love’ in 1964.

  1. One of a number of Beatles covers I’m sure I could count on the fingers of one hand that I think are at least as good, possibly better, than the original.
