What is your favorite cover?


There are many great covers, such as Mr. Tambourine Man,by the Byrds.  I'm curious about everyone's favorite.

Smokestack Lightnin’ by the Yardbirds, orig Howlin’ Wolf

Woodstock by Eva Cassidy orig Joni Mitchell

Summertime by Janis Joplin, orig George Gershwin

Ball and Chain by Janis Joplin, orig Big MamaThornton

Recently discovered Motorheads version of "Heros" by Bowie. Absolutely brilliant. Can't help but keep thinking of the Ukrainian resistance stand against that tyrant while listening to it.  Been bringing me to tears.

Considering that she co-wrote the song, I don’t know which is the original and which is the cover, but, in any case, I like Marianne Faithfull’s version of “Sister Morphine” more than that of the Rolling Stones’.

Not exactly a cover as it's Leonard Cohen performing his own song, but with a mind blowing assist by Sonny Rolllins.  Perhaps from David Sanborn TV show maybe 2006.
