Lot of good ones mentioned so far...Red House Painters did a couple of fun covers - "All Mixed Up" (The Cars) and "Roundabout" (Yes).

Just remembered
Jackson Browne's cover of the Rev. Gary Davis tune "Cocaine"

Immature? Of course I'm immature Einstein, I'm 50 and in a Rock and ROll band.

As a matter of fact.. Warren Zevon did a GREAT version of "Knocken On Heavens Door" On his last album...God bless 'em---the dog

Lots of great covers. I agree with the dog(s): Warren Zevon's cover of Knockin' on Heaven's Door is special. I got it on a compilation disc of covers/songs influenced by Bob Dylan.

My current favourite covers are:

Shelter From The Storm, covered by Mary Lee's Corvette

and

Dust In The Wind, covered by The Scorpions.
"Little Wing" - by the Corrs (The sexiest band in the world, IMHO) from their Unplugged album

A sentiment shared by many of us. I may just start a "who is your favourite Corr sister" poll :lol:

(mine is Caroline) :wink:

Although I sometimes cringe at covers (ah, nothing beats the original :wink: ), especially when it comes to either the Beatles or Led Zep (ahem, Puff Daddy's aweful attempt to cover...I mean, "sample" of Zep's "Kashmire"), I will admit that the following are my favorite covers:

"All Along the Watchtower" - DMB
"Hello" - Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies
"Live and Let Die" - Guns N Roses
"Knockin' on Heaven's Door" - Guns N Roses

OK, I know, I know, some of my choices may seemed biased because I'm a huge GNR fan, but IMO Axl brought those two songs to "life." :D

Man, I haven't thought of Foghat in a while, they were awesome.

I loved their cover of I Just Wanna Make Love to You.

Hey, check out their website, you get to hear another fantastic song, Slow Ride. :twisted:

Yes it was, I was getting the writing credits for this and Oye Como Va which was written by Tito Puente, mixed up in my poor old addled brain
