    The music offered in some recent threads made me want to start this one. Since I like different takes on songs this thread is dedicated to covers.

    I'll start off with a few:

    In seriousness the best two covers of all time are:

    Aretha Franklin's - Respect (otis redding did the original)

    and Hendrix's - All Along the Watchtower (dylan original)

    Can anyone refute this?

    Honorable mentions:

    Clash's - I fought the Law (crickets original)

    Talking Heads - Take me to the River (al green)

    Willie Nelson - Always on my mind (elvis)

    Minor Threat - 12xu (wire original)


    I'll probably think of a dozen more as Im falling asleep.

    I picked those very songs in another thread on the subject. Refutation is futile.
