Poor take on the song, but even ignoring the past versions it stands on its own as awful.
Dear Reviewers of this Cover, Please Read:
Hello, fellow iTunes viewers. I've read a majority of your comments and I feel it is time to review the purpose of a cover.
Did Maroon 5 try to sound just like John Lennon and mimic his musical stylings 100%? NO- the point of a cover is to reintroduce a popular hit, but tweak in the way of the band covering it. Adam Levine doesn't sound like Lennon and shouldn't have to sound like him. He sounds wonderful in his own way.
Does the fact that Maroon 5 covered this song mean they can't come up with originals? Ugh, I can't even believe someone mentioned this. Look up their past albums, will you? That's all I have to say.
Did Maroon 5 mean any disrespect by this? No way! In fact, the fact that they covered a song by Lennon EMPHASIZES their respect for him! They are greatly influenced by the Beatles and are using their fame to publicly express their appreciation for Lennon.
Okay, iTunes viewers, now that we've cleared this up, play the song again, either like it or dislike it with this logic in the back of your mind, and move on if you truly dislike Maroon 5 and their rendition of this.
By A** hat
Best version of this song. EVER. PERIOD.
I'm sorry, this isn't very good. I love the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. I dislike covers of their songs because they're not as good as the original. This song is alright, not completely bad, it's just... Okay.
Better than original
Love this version. Better than the original!! Judge it on the basis of this song not who has done it before!!
Precisely why I have the Beatles; their fans are so rabid about anyone doing a cover of the songs.
Not better tha the original, but still great.
If ur a true fan...
Its ok to express ur opinion but a good bit of you said u were fans and the song didnt cut it heres why ur wrong if u were a true fan u would support the decision of ur favorite band everyone has the right to take risks and try something new if u didnt like it y even comment they did what was right to them and if ur a true fan u should support them.
This version is so beautiful!! Adam's voice is amazing, can listen to him all day!!
I 👍👍👍 this!
