It takes a bold artist to cover a song and change the time signature, chords and structure - particularly if that song happens to have been written and recorded by the biggest band in the history of the world.
That's exactly what Cocker and his band did in 1968, though, adding a building organ intro and a vocal performance that makes Ringo's sound tame in comparison. His version tore up Woodstock, added pathos to The Wonder Years and has arguably become the definitive recording.
