    The original... and frankly I'm amazed anyone could rate a cover version of a Beatles song as superior to the original.

    Cocker's version has completely the wrong attitude. Cocker isn't at all suited to the song. It's supposed to be a light-hearted tune. Not something belted out by a power performer.

    In this case the original, most definitely.

    Though there have been covers of other Beatle songs I've grown quite found of.

    Perfect Cirles Imagine. I really enjoy the totally opposite feel it has to the Elnnon version. I'm not sure if I could choose between the two.

    "Imagine" was a Lennon solo effort made after The Beatles broke up. :p

    I've seen/heard a lot of people rate the Cocker version as better; I guess I was hallucinating.

    The Beatles version is pop; Crocker's is soul; both are good.

    It's a variation. An interpretation. There's no such things as a 'wrong' attitude.
