    Hey I forgot one of my favorite bands for doing covers, Rasputina. I saw them first opening for Marilyn Manson and later at the Southgate House, the birthplace of BG John T. Thompson (the inventor of the Tommy Gun). Their original songs are the best, but I like the covers too.

    Not the best version, but I like the live video:

    And this one is great, but I didn't know it was a cover until today:

    The original, released on a 78 RPM shellac disk in a year I can't discover, but certainly pre WW II, so I'll guess 20s or 30s:

    This Everly brothers tune has had many covers, but this version is near the top.



    Here is a tribute verison to Linda, lots of talent on that stage, that's Emmylou Harris on the end.

    A "cover" of an original Steely Dan song done by long time steely Dan associates, Skunk Baxter, Kipp Lennon, and Nathan East.

    Indeed. All three were eminently hittable.
