No contest. Joe vs Ringo = Joe all the way
Cocker is still one of the best cover song singers ever.

Joe Cocker is the *ONLY* artist I have ever heard cover a Beatles' tune better than The Beatles. (Perhaps it's because it was a Ringo song, not Lennon/McCartney, who's to say?) Changing the meter to 3/4... a risky move but it's dead-on here. Any time you can improve on the Beatles, you should get plenty of credit.

Feel free to cover a Beatles song, but I've never heard a cover version of a Beatles song that I have liked better than the original. The fab four had a masterful talent for pressing records in their finest form.

Joe's cover is way too bombastic...
I'll go with The Beatles, no doubt..
