TOP 10 MOST UNIQUE BEATLES COVER VERSIONS



5. 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' Sparks
Single (1976)

One of the most unique and original musical entities to ever walk the Earth tackle this early Beatles landmark in a way that is expectedly unexpected. Ron and Russell Mael are the core of the long-running combo known as Sparks, and the records they have made over the last forty years range from stunning and amazing to puzzling -- but never dull. On this B-side from 1976, they twist and turn the beat group pop of 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' into a soul-tinged ballad. Slathered in Hollywood pomp, the song is almost unrecognizable except for the lyrics.
