Monday marks the 34th anniversary of the tragic death of John Lennon, killed outside his apartment building in New York at the age of 40.Lennon’s gift for songwriting was one of the many reasons that the music of the Beatles remains so influential across the entire music industry. And while The Fab Four’s original recordings are not available on Spotify yet — they took a long time to arrive on iTunes, too — there is a wealth of incredible Beatles covers that show just how big an influence Lennon and the group had on the entire music world.

In honor of Lennon, we assembled the best Beatles covers into a Music Monday playlist. So enjoy this playlist full of artists paying homage to the masters.
