This week, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ debut on American shores, we’re taking a look at some of the best Beatles cover tunes.

Peter Mayer has played guitar and sang in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band for 25 years, but his solo music blends folk, pop, and jazz in some truly unique ways. In 2009, Mayer recorded an album of Beatles covers entitled Goodbye Hello. On this album, he took “We Can Work It Out” and turned it into a duet with Nadirah Shakoor, also of the Coral Reefers and formerly with Arrested Development.
