Sometimes Covers Are Just Better Than The Original

Seriously, no offense to The Beatles or anything, but this kid’s cover of “Don’t Let Me Down” reaches into the depths of the material in a way that those guys simply couldn’t. Not that The Beatles don’t deserve credit for their original (I mean, they wrote the song, for goodness’ sake!), but sometimes songs are just better translated through the talents and culmination of pain, desire, and happiness that arises in another artist, and this is one of those times! Like, in the vein of what I’m talking about I guess it would go this song, and then this song, but then way ahead of both of those it goes this song. You get what I’m saying? Seriously, though, no offense to The Beatles. They have a lot of good ones. (Thanks for the tip, werttrew!)
