Got to Get You into My Life


Like nearly all Beatles songs 'Got to get you into my life' is also a great song. It was published on the famous Beatles album 'Revolver'.
But Earth Wind & Fire modified this song quite well and created a funky version of this song. Anyway I like the original Beatles version better.

I love both versions, but the energy Earth Wind and Fire adds to theirs makes it phenomenal.

When Earth Wind And Fire ruined that song my Mom called them Mars, Fart, and Ashes. I wanted to hear the Beatles' version so bad and I put on Revolver! I love Revolver

I like The Beatles while William likes Earth Wind and Fire but EWF never sold a Christmas album

I'm not a Beatles fan, however, i appreciate Earth, Wind & Fire's version of this song more. They're my favorite band because they could take a well played and known song like this one and make it their own. No other remake did that & they were able to fit the remake into an album which included their own incredible songs. This one goes to the Elements!

Although I like The Beatles and what they represent in pop, I have to say that the EWF cover is very wel done. When I discovered it I thought it was absolutely powerful. There are bands that have covered that song in the way EWF did.

I agree, the Beatles was better, but I feel I have to say something for EWF's version. They really add something to the song, and they make it their own.

The Beatles is the best one, but #2 is by Cliff Bennett, not EWF.
