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

Joe Cocker is probably the only man who can improve a Beatles song. I think that why people are so careful in when they talk about covering Beatles music. With Beatles music you do it in one of there ways as an element of the entertainment such as with Across the Universe, as a tribute band such as 1964, or when you go out on the limb to make it your own such as Joe Cocker did. Cocker just adds more energy and just a bit of fun to it that made it good for a day time concert as he did at Woodstock. He gave it a gospel since of heart touch level that McCartney just did more of the skelton of. Both versions are great but this has to go to Cocker.

Joe Cocker's the biggest piece of SH*T I ever listened to. I vote Beatles! YAY RINGO! Joe Cocker RUINED I LOVE YOU from Ringo's show with The Chipmunks which is Barney!

i LOVE everything ringo ever sang, but Joe's revamp of the song is fucking brilliant, but the beatles surely don't miss any meotion joe has, it's just another style of playing, and sorry, but hendrix sgt pepper isn't that good, it can't hold a candle to the beatles.

I've yet to find a Beatles cover that is better than the original. Definitely vote for The Beatles

Is Cocker epileptic? He moves like his body has Tourettes Syndrome.

Definitely one of the best Beatles covers of all time, but still not as good as the original.

Cocker's version is easily much better than the Beatles. It's hard hitting and very bluesy compared to the Beatles pop version that seems to be missing some emotion, proving that Cocker has more feeling in his left nut than the Beatles had on the entire Sgt. Peppers album. By the way, Hendrix's version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is also better than the Beatles. Look it up.

Probably the only time a Beatles' cover was better than the original and I guess it isn't fair because Ringo sang it but Crocker turned it into a masterpiece, that simple
