Pretty sure that John had been sitting on the "Apple Corps" joke for years, him and Paul could not resist a shit gag, and here was the big chance to force everyone to laugh at their lame pun.

Paul coined it as a reference to the "Michelle, m'apple" line, you idiots.

Just as long as everyone is on the same page Yoko is a talentless cunt who manipulated a post-cynical LSD-ego destruction John Lennon into a motherless babyman who went along with anything that she said despite it being obvious horseshit to manipulate her career.

I think "talentless cunt" is unfair, but I recently watched both the Dick Cavett shows they were on, and the combination of Cavett trying a little too hard to accommodate her and even Lennon's occasional barely suppressed discomfort at some of her contributions makes it awkward viewing.

John just added the coincidence that it was Ringo in Japanese because Yoko told him that, as that's the only way she'd have heard of the name Ringo because of course she'd never heard of the world famous Beatles while she was in the central Bohemian art hub of the world in New York or London for years and they were always on TV or in the media. No, she only heard of them after meeting John Lennon purely by chance and him telling her. Lennon was still repeating all this in the mid 70s on chat shows, stupid cunt.

Some people have never heard of George Ezra, y'know.

"You're making me dizzy, my head is spinning..."

The version I'm most familiar with was sang by none other than Vic Reeves, alongside some britrock band I've never heard of. It's a cover.

At the time, I remember a friend's dad telling us about the original, how it was better and then playing the Tommy Roe single that he'd bought as a youth. Nine year old oiks that we were, we rolled our eyes and said we preferred the Vic Reeves version.

30 years on, I'd say the old lad was right.

Finally got around to listening to Yellow Magic Orchestra the last couple of days, and halfway through the Solid State Survivor album comes a familiar keyboard line.  Is that Behind The Mask?  Sure enough it is, I'm about to start formulating this post when the next track comes on, a cover of The Beatles Day Tripper.  Oh, so maybe the song's even older and YMO were covering it?  Quick trip to you know where shows that theirs is in fact the original version of the song only known to me as an Enoch Clapton joint. 

But wait - this hat's getting DP-ed!  The Clapton version is a cover of a cover, being his rendition of an unreleased version by Michael Bloody Jackson ffs!

Oh, god no!  If ever a recording benefited from the early 90s' abundance of recreational stimulants, it was this version.  Kudos to whoever saw potential in that blummin plodder!

Clapton also decided to turn it into a rip-off of Gimme Shelter for some reason

From the BBC4 TOTP thread when it was repeated last January:
It's a cover of a Ryuichi Sakamoto/Yellow Magic Orchestra song called Behind The Mask, which had English lyrics written by Chris Mosdell (it had started out as a jingle written by Sakamoto for a Seiko advert).  Quincy Jones was a fan of the song and  brought it to Michael Jackson. He recorded a cover with new lyrics he'd written during the Thriller sessions, but it wasn't released as they couldn't come to an agreement with Sakamoto's publishers over royalties.

Greg Phillinganes, Jackson's keyboard player, included a version of Jackson's cover on his Pulse album in 1985 and released it as a single, but it wasn't a hit.  Phillinganes was hired as a session keyboard player on Clapton's 1986 album August, (produced by Phil Collins) and he played his cover to Clapton during the sessions.  Clapton liked it and decided to record a version, with Phillinganes on keyboards and Collins on drums & backing vocals (along with Katie Kissoon & Tessa Niles). Despite only rewriting some of Mosdell's lyrics, Jackson got 50% of the royalties on this cover.

Pauline Moran (Ms. Lemon from Poirot with that David Suchet, and scary, screaming Woman In Black from that ITV drama that's just come out on Blu-Ray) was in an all-female band called She Trinity.

Just heard a song with 80s-sounding production values in the co op, with a chorus 'she's an easy lover'. It was a pastiche all along!!

En Vogue did a version of "Free Your Mind" for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics tie-in album, with completely different lyrics, and even did a video of them singing it (which is, admittedly, the same as the regular video, but they're definitely singing the other version).

The vocal on novelty UK Garage hit Deekline - I Don't Smoke was a Marcus Brigstocke sample.
