I'm Eleanor Rigby, I picked up the rice
In the church where the weddin's had been, yeah
I'm Eleanor Rigby, I'm keepin' my face in a jar by the door
You wanna know what is it for?

    Beatles version is more moving emotionally Aretha was more uplifting in her verse

    ARETHA! This is probably one of her most awkward covers, and it's still crazy good. Her version of "son of a preacher man" almost makes me jizz in my pants.

    Really good interpretation. At first I was thrown off because it's such a different song musically. I never thought of it as bluesy in any way, but the lyrics really do lend themselves to the blues. All about having the blues, loneliness and pain. I'd bet The Beatles felt honored by this version..
