    How about when you love a cover more than the original?

    I started to list them, but anything Linda Ronstadt recorded, and the original.
    It's takes rare talent and skill to interpret and redefine.
    She was the all time queen of that, IMO.

    Heck, yeah. "Heart Like a Wheel" would be her apex, for me. Killer songs, production, arrangements, and band.

    My Mom had an 8-track of that album that spent many hours playing through our junky little home stereo.

    One of the few Beatles' covers that I really like, Eddie nailed it imo.

    Bo's version is great, but listen to to Johnny Kidd only just reaching those notes and Mick's playing is exquisite.

    There is something to be said for this version though. Feral in its approach.

    Dylan wrote it, Clapton played it, and GNR perfected it.

    Is great.



    Is great also. Recorded in 1962, Mick was about 18 at the time. Recorded in one take, as they were wont to do.

    While I like Dolly's version more, Whitney really knocked I Will Always Love You out of the park.

    Sinead and Prince's versions of Nothing Compares 2 U are both excellent in my book.

    And while I'm a huge Nine Inch Nails fan, I just get chills every time I listen to Johnny Cash's version of Hurt!

    It was the word "love" that gave me pause. I've been listening to a lot of soul music lately (blues with better melodies) and if i had to pick an archetype soul song today it would be Cover Me by Percy Sledge. It's simple with a strong melody and lyrically the singer is on the edge with a relationship-it could go both ways-and he's pleading like James Brown. Begging at this point will likely not work but there's still that element of hope! And the song was co-written by Eddie Hinton and his version is just as good. Man, i love this song.
