In honor of five decades of the Beatles’ influence on America’s music, we’re looking at some of the best covers of the Beatles’ songs.

On his 2001 album Poses, singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright covered “Across The Universe.” I have to admit: I wasn’t crazy about this song until I heard this version, with its layered harmonies and acoustic pop drive.
