Tuesday Moment of Mea Culpa

If you were around on Friday, you may recall that I claimed that The Beatles' relatively obscure "Hey Bulldog" (from the Yellow Submarine soundtrack) hadn't been covered too often.

A trip to Wiki, however, suggests otherwise. In fact, it's been covered by Miles Kane, Alice Cooper, Crash Kings, Jim Schoenfeld, Tea Leaf Green, Eric McFadden, Ween, Elvis Costello, Cyndi Lauper, Fanny, Honeycrack, Ian Moore, Gomez, Rolf Harris, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Firewater, The Gods, Skin Yard, U-Melt, Dave Matthews, Paddy Milner, Of Montreal, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Bill Deal & the Rhondells, French rock band the Roadrunners, the Golden Ticket, Southern Culture on the Skids, Dave Matthews & Friends, the Chaperones, Charlemagne and the Independents, the Motet, Die Andalusischen Hunde, Les Shattels, as well as The Roots, who cover it during jams in their live shows with the Beatles' vocals replaced by rapping from their MCs.

I regret the error. Meanwhile, from 1976, here's a positively smoking version by underrated and quirky Brit prog-rockers Boxer.

You're welcome.
