i want you (she's so heavy).
written by john lennon (also credited to paul mccartney, although many say it was all lennon) and appearing on the beatles' "abbey road" - "i want you (she's so heavy)" has been covered by everyone from the bee gees, george benson, booker t & the mg's and sarah vaughan. being that i'm a huge fan of the funkmob, my favorite cover is from eddie hazel's "games, dames and guitar thangs". the beatles' version is rock heavy w/ gorgeous keys by billy preston. i'm not sure who plays on hazel's version but the brides of funkestein are on vocals.
check out both versions ..
