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?

Thank you for posting this, I really enjoyed listening to it. It's a really good cover, and a group I had not heard before.

This one is okay but the original, sung by Sonny Geraci for The Outsiders, is perfection.

All Along The Watchtower written by Bob Dylan (I hate his music). Jimi Hendrix did an awesome cover.

I'll grant you Robert Zimmerman can't sing a lick. But, he may the one of the greatest song writers of our generation.
I could give a list, but it it be too long too list of the great songs he's written, it's kind of scary. Most of them recorded, like Jimi, by other artists.

WHEN IT COMES TO COVERS, WE SHOULD PAY HOMAGE TO THE ORIGINAL GREAT BLUES ARTISTS- JOHN LEE HOOKER, MUDDY WATERS, HOWLIN 'WOLF, ETC. 7 THE ROCKERS WHO INTRODUCED US TO THEIR MUSIC. MY CURRENT FAVORITE COMPILATION CD IS "GOD DON'T NEVER CHANGE" COVERS OF BLIND WILLIE JOHNSON SONGS BY TOM WAITS, LUCINDA WILLIAMS, TEDESCHI-TRUCKS, SINEAD O'CONNOR, ETC.

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