    Re: Favorite Cover Songs

    Pretty much anything by Boyce Avenue. Check out their acoustic covers on YouTube they're amazing, and they cover pop songs you wouldn't think your like. Some of my favorites are Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift and Beautiful Day by Michael Buble.

    This may be the best cover of all time. So good.

    Also, credit to Whiskey in the Jar.

    Ryan Adams is an amazing talent. Thanks for sharing this.

    I'm a fan of him doing "Black Sheets of Rain" from Bob Mould.

    This, or pretty much any other cover by Aaron Lewis. Guy is pretty talented. Puts Rascal Flats ****** version to shame.

    Re: Favorite Cover Songs

    Hope it is not cheating to post two but I also absolutely love this one. John Lee Hooker doing Gloria, maybe the most covered song of the 1960’s and early 1970’s. Every garage band played this. Getting help from Van Morrison "covering" his own hit from back when he was with Them. Okay, so technically not a 100% cover but it's John Lee Hooker!




    Edit to correct Van Morrison group.

    You're absolutely correct, I can't wait to see him at Stephens in October. I'm so mad I didn't see him on his Live After Deaf tour in Kansas City but we had a 3 month old and the wife didn't want to leave her so soon.

    Smooth Criminal!


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: Favorite Cover Songs

    Here's a short list of ones I can think of offhand that were better than the originals:

    Johnny Cash - NIN's "Hurt" (overplayed, but obvious)
    Fugees - Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly" (just way more interesting)
    Clapton - Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff" (tons of soul in Clapton's voice)
    Cake - Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" (because Cake and disco)
