I've never really bothered with the originals of some of these songs, but I can tell you which covers I just don't like:
A Taste of Honey
Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby
I am partial to Dizzy Miss Lizzy, but I can't for the life of me figure out why it is the last song on Help! Very out of place, especially after Yesterday.
The Beatles' best covers by far are Long Tall Sally and Till There Was You.
I really like Roll Over Beethoven but I think that the original is even better.
[QUOTE=HotMangoChutney;3427015]Their single-take versions of "Twist and Shout" and "Long Tall Sally" definitely blow The Isley Brothers' and Little Richard's respective versions out of the water.[QUOTE]
Definitely prefer Beatles cover of "Twist and Shout," but beg to differ on "Long Tall Sally."
Nobody -- I mean nobody -- can upstage Little Richard. Paul sounds like a naughty choir boy compared to Mr. Penniman.
Wait wait, woah woah. Beatles' Twist and Shout better than the Isleys'? LOLNO
Harmonix, thanks to Jimi Hendrix Experience, you've made sure I never will say one bad word about your company!
Hahaha Dookie, I just said that because of when Paul is joking around about it being a cover in The Anthology.

"Golden Slumbers" is definitely not a cover song it's music set to a poem. This is actually quite common in music. I liked what the Beatles did with the Motown songs with the emphasis on the guitars and the beat. I think if not the first they were one of the first to make songs like "Twist and Shout" guitar beat orientated songs. My favorite cover version is the Beatles version of “Words Of Love” the guitar work is pure early jangle pop.
