I think some of you guys are just coming up with obscure covers to try to look cool.
This thread isn't about who wrote the song , it's about qwho covered the song.
He didn't mean "written by Skynyrd, he meant performed by Skynrd.
Most people know it's a JJ Cale tune. A guy Clapton's done some nice cover's of.
"Most people know it's a JJ Cale tune."
That's what I was saying. I DIDN'T know that. I have always thought LS wrote it. Which is why I was surprised to see it mentioned as a cover by them.
It's that collaboration they did a while back.
knowledge is always cool.
Busy mix...but there's more to like. Really dug JJ's vocals and drumming-solid. Loved the mandolin and Woodman's solo sounded a bit like Roy.
Thanks for posting...hard act to follow.
My oldest daughter's been visiting-she swung by on the way to Mexico and she's due back Sunday. Last time she was here we were messing around and she started singing Wild Horses but sang it like The Sundays, being a teenager in the 90's and all. So now it reminds me of her.
Maybe this version will sneak past the geography police:
The Gourds version of Gin and Juice is miles better than the original.
The Smiths 'Stop Me' covered by Mark Ronson featuring Daniel Merriweather manages to eclipse the original IMO
I Fought the Law - The Clash. As much as I love the Bobby Fuller Four, they made this theirs.
Absolutely love this band...
Just got into the Meters a few weeks ago.
How did I go so long without these guys?
CCR's "Good Golly Miss Molly" brings the funk.
Actually, CCR does quite a few awesome covers.
I think I like both The Dixie Chicks and Smashing Pumpkins versions of "Landslide" more than the original Fleetwood Mac (which is still pretty awesome).
(I really want to be a big bastard and not put song names and groups in. But this is teh inerwebs, and most of you aren't going to watch the videos anyway. )
Goin' back a ways...
Cover The Diamonds:
Original The Gladiolas:
Once In A Lifetime.
Cover Big Daddy:
(crap, no youtube. Calypso version by the kings of the mashuip. Seriously.)
Original Talking Heads.:
Cover Tracey Ullman:
Original Irma Thomas:
Then again, pretty much every Tracey Ullman cover beats the originals. In fact, Kacike DeShannon (the writer) has said that Ullman's version is the best. And nothing against Irma thomas, but even Jackie's demo version is better.
And not better, but certainly different:
Fat Bottom Girls
Cover Hayseed Dixie:
And Fez, if I'd known that the Rouders were covering the Fugs, I'd have been the King of high school way back when. My jaw is still dropped.
Billy's unauthorized cover of Bowie, which got the Associates a contract actually, when it should have got them in trouble.
i like this acapella version of "Unchained Melody" by the Fleetwoods much better than the Righteous Bros. understated and heartfelt, a real gem
Just wanna say I saw 1 image in there that's the Nevilles, not the Meters, and there could be more.
And of course Cyril was in the band as the 5th member later on.
I cringe when I think how cheaply you could hire these guys for fundraisers, benefits. We should've done it much more often than we did (the hall, the bar, the staffing, that was I guess what kept us in check).
If the music they've found is cool, I'm fine with it:
