Planet Rock has a new poll on their website asking for people to name their favorite cover songs. The one I chose was The Allmans doing Stormy Monday. Their version might be the best version of that song! What are your favorite covers?

Crossroads - Cream Stands the test of time

All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix. Associate the song more with Jimi than Bob

Hurt - Johnny Cash Brings tears to my eyes

I believe when asked about his song called "Watchtower" his response was "that song now belongs to Mr. Hendrix"

I personally prefer many of the songs already mentioned but i want to mention "The King Of Cover Versions":
Joe Cocker. Covering other people's songs and make them his own is kinda his speciality.

Joe Cocker - And A Little Help From My Friends

I don't know about "best," but in terms of putting a smile on my face, there is no question that the first 40 seconds of The Isley Brothers' version of Todd Rundgren's "Hello, It's Me" would be my choice. I challenge you to click on the link and not smile (or fall to floor in fits of laughter).

Watchtower has to be at our near the top of any list. And speaking of Joe, The Letter or Feelin' Alright immediately come to mind.

Along those lines, I've always loved the Rare Earth version of "I'm losing you".
