With A Little Help From My Friends

Lyrics

What would you do if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key

I don't know, but it seems that mr. Cocker took a Beatles classic and absolutely owned it. Damn! Good stuff.

Best version of this song i've heard

I love Joe Cocker and have had the good fortune to see a few of his concerts in the past few years. He still rocks in his mid-60 and his voice is still one of the finest in rock-blues.

I just saw the Belushi skit last week. SNL's are all on netflix now. I remember some people talking about that but it was much better seeing it for myself.

I like this version too, but I think the history channel should've used the original version for their channel. Sure it was by a British band, but Ringo's just awesome in it.
