    I think we have all the covers done by The Beatles so far. Secondhandsongs lists 75 by them

    http://www.secondhandsongs.com/artist/41#t3

    and we now have 80.

    The most covered artist of all time...

    Bits of the songs I posted below are all present in "Revolution 9", apparently. These are all taken from Wikipedia, so I can't verify them completely.

    I don't understand your list. Those songs were sampled or sample something. And how do you have the songs and not the songs they sample or were sampled in?

  • stationary unit
    stationary unit said 2 years ago:

    A lot of the classical music samples have been found. Some of the vocal samples were just outtakes from the studio that were never commercially released, and therefore can't be submitted.

    Here's an incomplete list:
    Vaughan Williams - "O Clap Your Hands"
    Jean Sibelius - "Symphony No. 7"
    Robert Schumann - "Symphonic Studies"
    Ludwig van Beethoven - "Choral Fantasy"
    Traditional Folk - "The Streets of Cairo"
    The Beatles - "A Day in the Life"
    The Beatles - "Revolution 1"
    An Elektra Records sound effects album

    George Martin saying "Geoff, put the red light on".
    An EMI sound engineer saying "This is EMI test series #9".
    Yoko Ono talking.
    John Lennon and George Harrison talking.
    American football chants.

    Anybody, feel free to submit them. Perhaps MrBlond could help, as he's added a lot of Beatles samples lately. Also, I'm having a hard time detecting some of the classical bits.

    Wasn't "Revolution 9" just a bunch of random samples? How has nobody found any of those yet?

    Finding audio/video sources is a stumbling block, I know I've got a fair few Beatles covers on vinyl that aren't online.

    According to BBC, just Yesterday has been covered by more than 2200 different artists :)

    WS has 1425 total :D

    When will be the day when we have submitted all of the Beatles covers? :D

    I think some people may want to have a look at this list:
    http://www.discogs.com/label/The+Beatles+Complete+On+Ukulele

    An online project by Roger Greenawalt and David Barratt, they hope to:

    a) Record & perform on ukulele all 185 original compositions by The Beatles with 185 guest artists.
    b) Write essays to coincide with each release.

    Hehe thanks to everybody who added here (you, Spy,...) Would you believe me if I said I wasn't aiming for it... I said ok let's do some covers of "This boy" it only has 2... but some where on tribute albums so by the time I added all This Boys I had 1001 and I noticed She Loves Me only needed one more for 10+ so I added another crazy one (worth checking out: Ted Chippington)

    Well done on getting 1000 Beatles covers Anubis! And we've barely scratched the surface when it comes to the Beatles!

  • DJ Anubis
    DJ Anubis said 4 years ago:

    60 covers to go... ^^ I guess it's getting a lil harder now? If everybody here that doesn't speak English would add the translations that were made in his country, we would be there

    Ooo, nice link! I wonder how many of the covers are on this site? Sounds like a puzzle to me...

  • KingRizlaa
    KingRizlaa said 4 years ago:

    Any one heard Mark Ronson's Mini Mix (from Annie Mac's Radio 1 show)?? He mixes together multiple versions of "Hey Jude", amongst others... worth a listen.

    A month later & we've got 300 more covers... I wonder who's to thank for that ^^

    Well done Tick, on getting the 100th sample!

    14 days later and we need one more sample... Who will submit the 100th sample? :)

  • Xanadu
    Xanadu said 4 years ago:

    Thanks, Drpepperfan. Musically the songs haven't changed, they were just spiced up versions in stereo... plus it's loads of work to add them all :P

  • Drpepperfan
    Drpepperfan said 4 years ago:

    Although they were remastered, I don't think that their is enough of a difference between the original and the remastered songs to warrant an entry on the site.

    Weren't a lot of songs remastered a year ago? Shouldn't they be added here as remixes?

  • DJ Anubis
    DJ Anubis said 4 years ago:

    This one is a lot harder: only 10 more for 100 samples :) (youtube prob fixed here)

  • DJ Anubis
    DJ Anubis said 4 years ago:

    Hmm, I should start more challenges (it took less then 5 minutes to complete ^^) Anyone else have probs with Youtube? Can't get on their server and see blank spots here for the embeds?

  • DJ Anubis
    DJ Anubis said 4 years ago:

    Anyone wants a minor challenge? Only 7 more covers and they reached 500 in total.

    Wow! The page gets updated frequently

  • Xanadu
    Xanadu said 4 years ago:

    I usually go to add one sample/cover and end up adding every thing that Wikipedia lists... I sometimes add other songs by the same artist. I added all Elton John 'Sorry Seems To Be' covers and got sidetracked at Leona Lewis.

  • DJ Anubis
    DJ Anubis said 4 years ago:

    Believe me, we've all been there... ah the lovely feeling of getting sidetracked... or linking a song, and then hearing samples in the original, linking that one, and hearing more samples in THAT original... like you say: until you totally forgot where you started :) Nothing more fun in musicdiscovery ;) Only problem is: some things come back to me in bed: "aah damn I wanted to link a track to Run-DMC" but which one was it... oh wait it had that other sample of X in it" *back out of bed* :D

  • tick
    tick said 4 years ago:

    hehe i tend to go for one artist and then find all their samples, but then you come across a song that you know is sampled somewhere else and go off on a wild good chase, and then another tangent, and after a while you forget what artist you were originally doing!

    Like researching things on wiki, you forget what you actually came to look up :)

  • DJ Anubis
    DJ Anubis said 4 years ago:

    wow, not even a month later and we got 100 more covers... Sometimes funny how one day an artist doesn't have a page and thanks to you guys the next day suddenly has a page filled with covers & samples :). Funny to see everyone specialising in certain areas ^^

  • DJ Anubis
    DJ Anubis said 4 years ago:

    The first to reach the 250 covers limit... Can we have more statistics like this? ^^
