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?

James, Kirk, and the boys great job on the vocals and guitar work. Lars was a bit busy with the machine gun tom toms. All in all a great cover. That band still rocks. JM2422

I recently watched a replay of the John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert (Dec 2015) on AXS-TV. One of the most amazing performances that evening was this cover of Watching the Wheels by Aloe Blacc.

I consider her the original. It was a tremendous performance.  

 

I love Chris Cornell. I will never forget seeing him perform solo.  Amazing voice. So sad that he is gone.

Please do not forget the guy who wrote this song for her Prince,. Sinead O'Connor was nobody until she recorded HIS song. Cornell's performance was great.

There is no possible way in this world that I would or could ever forget Prince.  This is a great covers topic and the reason for giving the covers the credit. And speaking of covers, here is a Prince cover that just knocks me over every time I see it

 

Given the tremendously talented guitarists on that stage, this is just amazing.

 Yes, I think Prince had that one covered pretty well!!

Comments mentioned that Prince was mad about being left off of Rolling Stone's Top 100 Guitarists list (talk about oversight!!) and decided to let his guitar do the talking!  

Dhani Harrison looks so much like his dad.

As a pure musician Prince made Michael Jackson look like back up band material, Sing, write, dance play 7 or 8 instruments. he literally could do it all. Take from a guitar player: HE COULD REALLY PLAY!!!

That's amazing! Funny that people in the background hardly notice him.

Kid's got an interesting angle with the skateboard. Some guitar playing ability as well. I still prefer Jimi Hendrix covering Bob Dylan. Still the penultimate version.

Okay, here's one that y'all may not know is a cover song. I didn't either until I saw it on an AXS-TV program called Hits That Were Covers. A lot of music professionals didn't know it was a cover either. This one got the no. 1 ranking on the show.

 

Black Magic Woman - Santana (1970 cover)

 

So here's the original - Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green (Green wrote it) 1968
