On his 2009 album Goodbye Hello, singer-songwriter Peter Mayer put his own spin on a collection of Beatles classics. His version of “Blackbird” shows off his virtuoso guitar skills and his amazing voice.

I think the best Beatles cover, ever, is Elton John's "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." A close second is Earth, Wind & Fire's version of "Got To Get You Into My Life."
