GREAT COVERS OF YOUR FAVORITE SONGS

For many an original song that they love cannot and will not ever be duplicated by a cover, but there are many songs that have been done equally (debatebly) well by others..

So do you have favorites?

 

What are your favorite covers of favorite songs?

Fleetwood Mac, and a whole lot more wouldn't have had anything to sing about.

Wow! Thanks for posting this, it was awesome, so joyous. Listened to it once, then called my husband in to listen to it again. We found ourselves wondering how Mozart or Beethoven  would react to it 😉
