Well, come on Posted by Johny Hit and Run Dec 032021 Great cover?…Greatest cover? 12 Responses to “Well, come on” geo says: 12/04/2021 at 1:27 am I like Uncle Tupelo. I like this cover. Greatest cover? Not even the greatest cover of I Wanna Be Your Dog.” I prefer the Alejandro Escovedo version. https://youtu.be/l7y3o5RwBZQ The following is the greatest cover of all in my book. An oddly sourced cover that sits perfectly in this band’s debut album. It’s of a piece with the album and yet maintains a stylistic connection to the original. https://youtu.be/nbtEkZIvMAg 0 High Five BigSteve says: 12/04/2021 at 12:28 pm I’m pretty banjophobic, but I like it. In a way it’s not exactly a cover, more like reusing the words by singing them over a different song. 2 High Five Lucidersquad says: 12/05/2021 at 1:50 am Hey @BigSteve how you doing, I just saw one of your thread which was from 2009( Makin Love , Rock n roll pick up lines ) . I didn’t actually hope this website’s still running. It’s good to see you here man!!! I hope you’ve a great day . 0 High Five chickenfrank says: 12/05/2021 at 7:38 am I thought you meant the ALBUM cover was the best cover. Of course that can’t be true because Whipped Cream and Other Delights is the best album cover. 1 High Five sammymaudlin says: 12/05/2021 at 9:18 pm Or Warrant’s Cherry Pie. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 12/06/2021 at 8:13 am Boring answer but true: “All Along the Watchtower,” by Jimi Hendrix. 1 High Five chickenfrank says: 12/06/2021 at 8:33 am Ha! It took me a long time to understand the subtlety of that album cover. OH, the piece of pie is symbolic of her Hoo-Ha. Did they know that the Album cover for Mom’s Apple Pie did that trick already? 0 High Five cdm says: 12/07/2021 at 9:46 am Are we talking about cover versions of songs? If so, the Mod came pretty close with Watchtower but I think the Clash were great at covers and I would place I Fought the Law as number 1 closely followed by Police on My Back. Also, I really like Tiny Bradshaw’s version of Train Kept a Rollin’ but I prefer the other three more well known rock versions in chronological order: Johnny Burnette and the Rock and Roll Trio, the Yardbirds, and Aerosmith . 0 High Five cdm says: 12/07/2021 at 9:49 am Tiny Bradshaw’s version: https://youtu.be/ci4EQDD4CqA 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 12/09/2021 at 6:11 pm I saw something where people were discussing their 5 favorite songs. I don’t know what mine are, but Johnny Burnette and the Rock and Roll Trio’s Train Kept a Rollin’ is probably my favorite song. I really love that, I have since I was a kid. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 12/11/2021 at 12:41 am chickenfrank, if anyone ever told me that I would have giggles that may carry over to when I’m trying to fall asleep simply from reading the words “Hoo-Ha,” I would have said, “No way!” Way! 0 High Five SirLaurenceOblivious says: 12/12/2021 at 12:21 am Best album cover? Yeah, I’ll agree with Whipped Cream and Other Delights. Best cover of a Rock song? If Rock includes ballads- and it does- the champ has got to be ‘Without You.’ Nilsson took a very nice Badfinger song and made it as monumental as the pyramids. 0 High Five Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
