I will admit that I cringed inwardly at the thought of Vedder covering this tune (a favorite of mine), but after giving it a listen, I do not think it half-bad. I would not go so far as to say that it is an improvement on the classic...because, as with any Beatles song, such is not possible.

The original is perfection, I agree. But, I think Eddie does an amazing cover. His voice and acoustic guitar playing are right on the mark. I really can't imagine anyone else being able to pull it off. I know a lot of people think Pearl Jam is some washed out 90's grunge band. But, I really think that EV comes very close to Moz's talent, both lyrically and with his vocals. He also has a huge, loyal fan base. You may ask why I am not posting this at PJ's site. Because honestly I like Moz fans better. I am staying here. I've made Solo my home. I hope no one minds, lol.

Surely you must like THIS version of "She Loves You" better than the original, Codreanu

Have you heard Peter Sellers' Dr. Strangelove version of "She Loves You"?

MP3 is linked below.

Wow, that's a nice one!

Is this Eddie without Pearl Jam?

I haven't followed Pearl Jam's career. This MP3 is a keeper though! Thanks!

Lol! Well, I will GIVE you that one...only because that is one of the few Beatles songs I find genuinely disagreeable.
I really do like the little introductory flourish of Wagner -- that prelude to act i of Die Meistersinger is my favorite piece by the composer.
Are you familiar with Laibach's bombastic cover of the (almost) entire "Let it Be" album? I really do not care much for the band, except for the truly beautiful "Macbeth," but "Let it Be" is much greater than its status as a novelty; I used to listen to this a lot in high school, until loaning it to a friend...

Yes, it is from the soundtrack for the movie "I AM Sam." The whole CD is Beatle's covers. I haven't listened to the others yet. I was turned onto the Eddie cover by a friend, who is a huge PJ/Eddie Vedder fan. I am glad you like it.

I Me Mine -- Holy shit! That sounds like a Satanistic Chant.
I am too scared to go into the basement now, lol.

Wow, I like Across The Universe. Very spiritual.

What a contrast ~ Light and dark ~ Good and Evil.
