this has got to be the hardest one yet for me as there are so many good cover versions some from the doors,Rory Gallagher,The Grateful Dead,Golden Earring and why too many more to mention but these are very similar to the original so i tried to find something with a twist for the good cover

Who do you love

Original

Good Cover

Bad Cover

<neg>
according to the crack yes this is a cover but i'm still not convinced it's that bad and so far removed i'm still not sure


Big bad Bo wins this hands down

not really i honestly believe he's a great song writer but every time someone (of note) covers his songs they are better than his version

He has done so many amazing covers in his "American" albums, and I think every single one of them are better than the original. <awe>

It is not the best cover is it <erk>.

I do really like the original Mercy Seat and Personal Jesus, but I just can't get enough of 'old Cash' <love>. Still liked a lot of his eariler stuff, but for me his older (newer) stuff is just amazing.

Yeah I love the later Cash stuff as well,I like his earlier stuff but stuff like Hurt,personal Jesus,The Man Comes Around,The mercy seat,I Hung My Head etc. are a cut above and the American series of albums are probably his finest works.

This gives me an excellent opportunity to be a pedant and point out that Run-DMC's version is actually a cover of the original song which was by Aerosmith. <whistle>
However, that Sugababes/Girls Aloud version is an abomination to music. <puke>
