Back from a great vacation.
Esquire’s short list of great Beatles covers gives proper kudos to an excellent but largely unrecognized band from the way back, The Feelies. Listen to their cover of “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey”. Fantastic.
Sure, the Beatles were probably the most important rock band, but the Rolling Stones are a close runner up. And that’s what seals the deal for The Feelies. ‘Cause they’ve got a solid, if straightforward, cover of Paint It Black. Listen up.
