Some Kind of Happiness is Measured Out in Miles

Don't look at me, man. I've already got grandchildren!

The PowerPop blog recently lamented that there haven't been more cover versions of the Beatles' "Hey Bulldog."

Just to remind you, that's the one that goes like this:

So in the interest of not wanting the week to actually start yet, here's a few cover versions.

Ween live in 2006:

The French band Les Shattels:

Cyndi Lauper (she's still so unusual) at a John Lennon tribute concert in 1990:

Dave Matthews:

Toad the Wet Sprocket (listen to the intro on headphones):

The Crash Kings:

Miles Kane:

And Elvis Costello with the Fab Faux -- embedding's disabled on this one, so you have to click here.

Some good digging! Another one is the 1972 cover by Fanny, the all-woman band that had a hit with "Charity Ball."
