Leo Sayer did an excellent version of Bobby Vee's (I don't know the original artist) More Than I Can Say.

Paul Young does that one also. It's pretty good.

I've always liked Crowded House's song, Don't Dream It's Over.  I recently heard a version by Diana Krall which is really good.

Simon & Garfunkel cover of the Everly Brothers song, Bye Bye Love  - from the 1970 album, Bridge Over Troubled Water. It's a perfect fit!

Great version. The funny thing was that was done with original Motown Funk Brothers/studio musicians. They had to practically beg her to try it. She did a beautiful job!!

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.

The song is by Leon Russell, and Donny Hathaway covered it. But either way a great pick.
