I agree. Everything Elvis did was special and will always be timeless.

There are many songs by original performers that become icons in and of themselves. One such song would be Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. However, once in a while someone comes along who can take the song to different place, and that is what makes it a great cover. Here is an interesting take on Billie Jean by Aloe Blacc with a string quartet. You may like it or hate it, but that is the way art works, and this man is an artist.

One of my favorites was William Bell 1968 " I Forgot to be Your Lover." In 2002 my grandson was shocked when I told him that Jaheim remade his favorite song " Put That Woman First" from the original popular in my day.

The "Wagon Wheel" we know today was never done by Dylan.

This will probably be controversial. But this is my opinion. Even tho Bob Dylan was a very good songwriter, I didn't really like his performance of those songs. It was always lacking something, regardless of how good they were. It seemed to me that his songs were just demo versions in need of further refining. Just about anyone who had their own version of his song(s) did a better job with it. I still like him tho.

"Wagon Wheel" originally and spectacularly done by Old Crow Medicine Show. Covered by Darius Rucker and became one of his greatest hits. I believe he got a Grammy for it.
