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

  • very cool cover~OhYeah
  • Better than the Beatles...
  • Well, this is different...
  • I like Aretha but this cover misses the original spirit
  • Beatles version is more moving emotionally Aretha was more uplifting in her verse
  • Ray Charles does a really great version too. This is brilliant. [2]
  • Mindblowing
  • thats a fuckin cool photo of Aretha with the bug eye shades...
  • 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.
  • anything by aretha is genious pure and simple god given talent that is a gift from above a gift that gives us humans the chills
