If you want to butcher a song, do it in a bikini, not a tablecloth


EOnline- The pop star was tapped to sing the classic “Yesterday” on the CBS special The Beatles: The Night That Changed America—A Grammy Salute, and though she seemingly did the song justice, she rubbed some Fab Four fans the wrong way. Why? Well, for starters, there’s a contingent out there that can’t stand when an artist changes the line “suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be” to “I’m not half the girl I used to be”—a change-up that happens pretty much every time a woman covers the Lennon-McCartney classic.

That had to be a joke right? Take one of the best songs and have one of the worst singers cover it, and let her change the words. It was either a joke or a way to get John Mayer to show up because that was brutal. Sure it was passable but this is a tribute to the most popular music group ever, and this is one of their most famous songs. It’s not some B side track that only 8 people have heard while tripping on LSD. I mean were Boyz 2 Men busy working at their real estate/bank teller jobs? They did one of the best covers of that song I have ever heard. I mean I wasn’t busy, I could’ve done better than that. Maybe not but you don’t know.
