Perhaps the White Album’s strangest song aside from “Revolution 9,” this short little ditty was almost nixed from The Beatles’ original release for being too silly, until Patti Boyd (George Harrison’s wife) pleaded with them to keep it. Phish covered it in typically wacky form for their 1994 Halloween musical costume.

Phish, "Wild Honey Pie" – 10/31/94, Glens Falls, NY
