If you love music, you probably use the YouTube Music app often. You can go to the app and find the song you want using the app’s search tool, or you can ask your digital assistant to play a specific song from a specific artist (eg. , “to play Revolution number 9 by the Beatles on YouTube Music”). You may first be asked to unlock your phone. In addition to its extensive library of original performances, YouTube Music offers a wide selection of cover songs, allowing the app to recommend a selection of them as well as alternate takes, live versions, and more.
Scroll down to Other Performances and you’ll see cover versions of Come together from the likes of Ike and Tina Turner (!) and Jennel Garcia. There is also a live version sung by the late John Lennon (who of course wrote the melody and recorded it with the rest of the Beatles). Speaking of the latter, there is also an alternate take recorded by the Liverpudlians included in this list.
