OK. We have a very excellent thread going on about "Deep Album Cuts"

How about one on "Cover Tunes"?

You know, songs done by someone/group other than the original artist, or at least the artist that comes to mind when you hear a particular song.

Lets also include different versions of the same song by the same artist.

I'll start:

Cover Songs:

After Midnight and Cocaine by Eric Clapton (Originals by J.J. Cale)

I have a few others, but it's late and my brain isn't working well right now!

Alternate Versions:

Hotel California - Eagles, the acoustic version from "Hell Freezes Over" I actually like this more than the original!

Layla - Eric Clapton, the acoustic version. Good also!

Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood - Eric Burden, the version from the album "Sun Secrets". Much, much better than the version that you hear on the radio.

I'm VERY fond of covers. And Andy, I will immediately be seeking out Al Koopers version of that Elton song. That's a favorite Elton song of mine and my brother's as well.

There is no way I could list all the ones that I like - but here are my favorites;

Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah ( Leonard Cohen ). I got to be on the air with Rick Emerson a while back to present my " Top 5 Teenage, Angst-Ridden, Lovelorn Moping Songs " and Rick told me this was the most covered song in Canadian history.

Ben Folds Five - Tiny Dancer ( Ben Folds coming to PDX in May. I will be there ).

Cheap Trick - ALL their Bealtes covers - Magical Mystery Tour especially.

Elliot Smith - Because - ( Beatles )

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Born To Run. ( Springsteen )

Lightning Seeds - You Showed Me. ( The Turtles )

U2 - Helter Skelter ( Beatles )

Joan Jett - Crimson and Clover ( Tommy James and the Shondells )

Dishwalla - It's Going To Take Some Time ( Carpenters )

Rage Against The Machine - Renegades Of Funk ( Afrika Bambaataa )

RHCP - Love Rollercoaster ( Ohio Players )

Sarah McLachlan - Dear God ( XTC )

Sundays - Wild Horses ( Stones )

Travis - Killer Queen ( Queen )

Van Halen - Pretty Woman ( Roy Orbison )

7 Seconds "99 Red Balloons" (Nena)
The Germs/David Bowie/The Rolling Stones/who knows who else "Round & Round" (Chuck Berry under title "Around and Around" but same lyrics)

There was also some punk band I can't remember that did a pretty spirited version of "Go Your Own Way" in the early 1990s. A few years later, the Cranberries would also cover this song.

local legend Steve Bradley.

Mr. Bradley outplays a number of original performers. The Ventures "Walk, Don't Run" for example. And a number of Stones songs.

Philly-

So glad you brought up Doug Smith. What an incredible talent. Saw him do a concert with John Standefer in Vancouver a couple of years ago that blew me away. Both these guys have won the international Finger Picking Award in the past few years.

"Hey Girl" Billy Joel (excellent, Billy wasn't mentioned in the top rock singers thread, but his range and ability to stay in key is the reason his songs did so well in the 70's and 80's. This cover is even better than Ray Charles' cover of this tune (written by Goffin/King)

"You Gotta Move" Aerosmith from Honkin' On Bobo" This is the best cover of this old Rev. G. Davis tune since the Rolling Stones did it on Sticky Fingers.

It's hard to think of the longest running #1 in the Rock era as a cover version! That's what "Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog" was until Billboard adjusted it's methodology in 1991 and everything changed.

Since it's short for "synchronization", I'd say that's the common spelling.

Doug is such a huge talent! I've seen him live a couple of times over the years. My all-time favorite thing that he does live is Stars and Stripes Forever. On acoustic guitar. It's truly amazing.

I'll check out John Standefer. I've never heard the name, but if he's a fingerpicking champion, I'm interested.

Yesterday, when I tuned in to 1230 to see what format they were running, I heard a Spanish song--I think in the Mexican Sinaloa style (the one that sounds like polka). A very familiar melody was coming from the singer. I turned up the volume to better hear the lyrics: íSola otra vez! íNo quiero ser sola otra vez! It took me a while to pin down the melody: Eric Carmen's "All By Myself."
