I agree and an absolutely great song, and maybe the best cover of a Beatles song ever. But then again, look at the personnel in that band. Jeff Lynn, and Tom Petty on vocals, Dhani on acoustic , Steve Winwood, Ferrone on drums, and of course Prince on guitar. Great solo on that Tele he plays all his serious solos on.
The night I saw that show when he came with that particular Tele on, I knew he meant business. Love that rendition. In my heart, I I knew George was up there jammin' too.

Simply put, ditto. They're all great. No comparison needed. If you need to hear how good they were as a band listen to Beatles, Naked. Great raw album.

My personal favorite Beatles song is Yesterday.

"Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.  Now it looks as though they're here to stay.  Oh, I believe in yesterday."

There are way too many favorites, so I can't pick just one. I go from Baby's in Black to If I fell to Helter Skelter. I love them all.

Oh my! That's a tough one. There are two that especially stand out to me. 

 

Let It Be - (1970 album, Let It Be) This was their last single from their last album to be released. McCartney said it was inspired by a dream about his late mother, whose name was Mary. To many fans, it became something of a Beatles farewell anthem. I was in a high school folk / pop group and we sang this a lot because it had great harmonies.

 

In My Life - (1965 album, Rubber Soul)  IMO, this is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. The lyrics are especially amazing since it seems to be reflections of a much older person, yet John Lennon was only 25 when he wrote it.  Rubber Soul is still my favorite Beatles album. 

 

Honorable mentions to -

 

Yesterday (1965, Help) Possibly the most covered Beatles song ever

Here Comes the Sun (1969, Abbey Road) 

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (1968, The Beatles, White Album)

Come Together (1969, Abbey Road) IMO, one of their best "fun" songs 

 

My favorite cover of a Beatles song -

Help - covered by Deep Purple (1968, Shades of Deep Purple) Deep Purple singer, Rod Evans, came up with the idea of singing Help as a ballad. It was reported that John Lennon heard it, and remarked that this was how he envisioned it being sung in the first place but management wanted it sung up-tempo for the movie. Lennon said it was meant to be a ballad.

 

Always fun to chat about The Beatles!
