I gotta tell you...this is fun! I am three nights into "The List" and your response has been fantastic. Thank You! Tonight we were "Undercover". I played what I feel are the 7 best cover-tunes ever. It's quite an art to take another artists song and then make it your own...just ask the kids on American Idol. In case you missed it my choices were;
- Santana-Black Magic Woman (originally Fleetwood Mac)
- Cream-Crossroads (Robert Johnson)
- The Black Crowes-Hard to Handle (Otis Redding)
- CS&N-Woodstock (Joni Mitchell)
- Talking Heads-Take Me to the River (Al Green)
- Joe Cocker-With a Little Help From My Friends (Beatles)
- Jimi Hendrix-All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan)-My choice as the best "Cover" ever. Your thoughts...drop me a note!
Tomorrow on "The List"-What do The Beatles, Steely Dan and Guns and Roses Have in common...you can "Lick" it!
