Nina Simone: You Can't Do That!

Join the electrifying Nina Simone as she (ahem) 'improves' a Beatles classic. Do you think she listened to the original more than once?


  1. Good cover! Different but loosely rooted in the source. Better than a slavish copy; those are good for live covers bands but pointless in recorded form.

  2. Is that a cover version? Erm?

    Groovy baby. Come on, it's a complete rewrite isn't it?

  3. Kind of agree with you both! A slavish cover is pointless, and this is so far removed it probably could be classed as a different song.
