Best Cover Version?

I’ve been enjoying this song a lot lately. Just a great combination of soul and funk.

Sly & The Family Stone: Que Sera Sera

Nice, scomargo! The link doesn’t work anymore but I found another version. Lots of soul. I’m enjoying this at the moment (much less soulful, though). A cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie” done on a rooftop in Buenos Aires during a sunset while a girl dances in the background using a hula hoop. It all somehow works for me. Transports me to another location.

First time I watched this I almost cum:

I really liked The Mexican, I think I never heard the original, but this one is good!

The Damned’s cover of the Stooge’s “I Feel Alright,” is not too shabby.

Oh, and the Damned’s cover of the Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz.”


#149

Elton John’s “Rocket Man.” hee-haw!


#150

Nice! Didn’t think the banjo would work, but they pulled it off. The Iron Horse reached exit velocity.

This cover is so good that most people don’t know it was originally a Shuggie Otis song:


#152

My favorite cover of all time (so far), much better than Dylan’s version.


#153

And here’s how not to cover the same song. Axl’s vocal flourishes are so annoying you want to tear off his headband and choke him with it…and even Slash is phoning it in.

As long as we’re doing covers of Dylan tunes:

This has only 250 hits for a reason. They keep removing this best Dylan cover of all time.

In case the above video is removed before long, here’s a cover of Hendrix’s cover of Dylan’s classic:

The story of the Richie Havens’ style is so cool. He didn’t have a teacher and of course there were no YouTube tutorials at the time. And so he got his guitar and tuned it to a way that sounded good to him- open D tuning (the D chord plays when your strum the guitar without pressing on the strings). Richie played the guitar on his lap for a while until somebody criticized him for that. But he didn’t change the tuning and he didn’t change the way in which he wrapped his thumb around the neck to play chords, using his other fingers minimally. The result was pure magic. The moral of the story? Well the one that comes to mind is to give your kids room to experiment and come up with their own solutions. Sometimes you can do your kids no greater disservice than forcing them to do things the “right” way.

Originally an Otis Redding tune. Ready for the weekend.

Doesn’t look like this has been posted here before. I think it deserves a place at the table.


#158

Where did Prince’s guitar go to???
