Joe Cocker's version was a radical re-arrangement of the original, in a slower, 6/8 meter, using different chords in the middle eight, and a lengthy instrumental introduction (featuring drums by Procol Harum's B.J. Wilson, guitar lines from Jimmy Page, and organ by Tommy Eyre). It was used as the opening theme song of the American television series The Wonder Years and is one of Cocker's most famous songs. Cocker performed the song at Woodstock in 1969 and that performance was included in the documentary film, "3 Days of Peace and Music". His cover was ranked number two in UpVenue's top 10 best music covers of all time in 2009.[11] The version heard in the film Across the Universe segues from the original to Cocker's arrangement at the end of the song
