New Wave covers the Beatles

New Wave/Punk music, culture, genres, memories. '80s revivalism and other relevant topics.

Day Tripper was covered by YMO, and Revolution by the Thompson Twins. Lots of Beatle covers in New Wave. A good song can be adapted to just about any genre, and the Beatles had a crapload of them.

I'm a little surprised that McCartney's "Coming Up" wasn't remade (as far as I know). It sounds like the kind of song DEVO or Duran Duran could of had some fun with.

did anyone mention Oingo Boingo's cover of I am the Walrus off their last record?
they also did a cover of the Kinks of You Really Got Me on the Only a Lad LP (sure everyone knows that!)

I heard World Party live in 1987 doing a Day in the Life live at their tour in celebration of the 20 year anniversary of the lp (man it was that long ago!)

And then there's The Smithereens who have lately become a virtual Beatles cover band.

Colin Newman of Wire did a fine cover of 'Blue Jay Way' on his excellent 1982 solo album, 'Not To' - highly recommended, both cover version and album as a whole.
