With a list this long, it can be awfully hard to choose. Or... maybe not?
Standout ones for me:
- Fiona Apple, "Across the Universe"
- Joe Cocker, "With a Little Help from my Friends"
- Pearl Jam (or was it Eddie Vedder alone?), "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away"
- Elliott Smith, "Because"
- Elliott Smith, "For No One" (I actually prefer his to the original)
Favorite Beatles songs (actual)? It might take me a few days to put together a list, but I think my one favorite song might be "Don't Let Me Down." I don't know what that choice says about me, but I think it's incredibly sexy. (Someone needs to make an internet quiz called "What your favorite Beatles song says about you.")
