Courtesy of Townsman cherguevarra. News of this astounding find was first posted within a recent All-Star Jam. I knew you wouldn’t want to miss it. An alternate Beatles “Butcher Cover” has been found in among a private collection of Beatles memorabilia in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Check it out…after the jump!

Have three women ever sung a medley with so little sensitivity to the material? Cher and Tina Turner are especially brutal! Is the horn section alive?

How pissed must Klaus Voorman have been to have seen his work in corporated into this mess?

  1. Is that Jack Lemmon?

  2. People really shouldn’t do massive amounts of cocaine before arranging medleys.

    The only redeeming factor is realizing that that medley is totally pieced together and there’s no way they got through the whole thing in a single take.

    “You can get it wrong and still you think that it’s all right.”

    My favorite part is when Kate starts to get her groove thang on at the beginning of Day Tripper at around 1:52.

  4. It’s good, right?

    I thought the goofy guy it was variety show staple, Tim Conway.

    Poor Kate Smith….

  6. Cool. Day Tripper is the peak when Cher and Tina start leg kicking and hair whipping and cheering each other on, and all Alex Karras can do is sway from side to side in that polar bear suit they have him in.

  7. Or, from the ridiculous to the sublimely awful:

    I just showed this vid to my 15 year old. Without seeing the title of the post he said “I refuse to watch this. They are butchering my favorite Beatles songs.” He then asked to what address he should send his “hate mail.”

    That’s my boy.

  9. This puts the lie to the saying about it not being over until the fat lady sings; this was over long before that – although she did shovel quite a bit more dirt on the grave.

    And help me with the chronology – was it after this that Ike started beatin’ on Tina?

  10. Or, from the ridiculous to the sublimely awful:


    OK, that was worse. At least Cher, Tina and Kate are trying to have fun, and the cocaine-addled producers were trying to be funny.

    That second video was the result of someone saying “Hey! Everyone loves ‘Please Please Me,’ and only a fun-hating party-pooper would ever point out that the lyrics could be interpreted as passive-aggressive semi-date-rape peer-pressure. Let’s take all the bounce, fun and romance out of that song so there can be no other interpretation BUT that!”

    And about 20 people saying “Yeah! Cool!”

    A cover that actually makes you like the original less – that takes some doing.

  11. I sent this link out to my Facebook friends and told them that if they opened it up they HAD to watch all the way through. I got back 20 seconds, 35 second, 5 seconds. Nobody could sit through the entire thing. It’s Two Girls One Cup for Beatle fans

    That’s funny, jungleland2. Good effort on your part at spreading the stink.
