Spin through your playlists for today’s LTP, it’s about cover songs.
I can count the number of covers I like better than the original on one hand. Jane’s Addiction’s version of “Sympathy for the Devil” is sublime. Pretty much anyone who’s ever covered a Dylan song has a leg up. (Ducks.) I like UB40′s “Can’t Help Falling In Love” better than Elvis’s. (Ducks and hides.) What covers do you like more than the originals? Extra credit: What cover would you love to hear that doesn’t exist? I’d like to hear Henry Rollins sing anything by John Mayer. I’d pay good money to hear it, in fact.
