The Guess Who did a cover of Blackbird. The Beatles version is way better.

Good song, terrible version

Um sorry people but i am a twelve yr old girl and do a better cover of this

The only cover band that actually covers this song excellently (that I know of, anyway) is Walk Off the Earth.

Blackbird is a beautiful song and the original is outstanding. However any good teenage middle school chorus student who has mastered this song and can play decent acoustic guitar can come close to matching this. Also, there are some excellent cover versions of Beatles songs. A few that I know of are Michelle by Andy Williams,Wit h a Little Help From My Friends by Ritchie Havens,and my favorite and better than the original is Dear Prudence by Siouxsie and the Banshees.

Never heard this version until now. Sounds good to me, but interesting discussion below.

I pretty much agree with Laura and John below. Why cover a song if not to put your own interpretati o n out there? A note for note imitation is kind of pointless.

Sorry but Beatles version is way better

Let's face it - The Guess Who was not a good cover band. Maybe good at coming up with their own songs, but not covers.
Report as inappropriate
This cover is pointless. It sounds almost exactly the same as the original--ex c e p t for the fact that it's completely inferior.
Report as inappropriate
Covering a song like Blackbird was a gutsy choice. They had to know whatever they did would be a distant second to the original - and it is. Sounds like they did their best to exactly re-make the original complete with the chirping bird. Seems kind of pointless - like a neutered dog humping the couch pillow. Just a tad pathetic.

What's the point of a cover if it sounds this close to the original?
Report as inappropriate
I actually thought it WAS McCartney singing.

this is a great cover of the song, but i do think that i like the Paul McCartney version quite a bit better, as it has a clearer sound than this one.

I've only heard the Paul McCartney and Beatles versions before. Usually the covers are utterly horrible, even without being compared to the originals. This is one of very few exceptions. This is a great cover.
Report as inappropriate
Very good cover. I had never head this version before until now.

it is about race but not racist. paul mccartney said that he was inspired to write this song after he saw the civil rights riots in america in the 60's. it is a beatles song, this is just a cover. saw him in concert recently and he explains a lot about where his songs come from. great showman, i recommend you go see him when he comes to your town.

I this is a very good cover. More often than not, though, the original is always better. That's the case here as well.

@angelina No, The Guess Who did not write or perform this song originally.
Written by McCartney on The White Album.
