alright here's some old time stuff first

Santana-"Black Magic Woman" ( Fleetwood Mac)
Ray Charles-Georgia On My Mind (Hoagy Charmichael)
CCR-I Heard It Through the Grapevine (Gladys Knight & Pips)
Aretha Franklin-Respect (Otis Redding)


In regards to more modern covers,  I can't believe I didn't see a mention of Nirvana's Unplugged album which is almost half cover songs.

I'm sure it's been mentioned, but I don't want to wade through 9 pages. Ryan Adams covering Wonderwall is unbelievable.

Also Metallica's Garage Inc is amazing, especially covering Queen's Stone Cold Crazy.

Sorry, this belongs to the Gourds... they did the best cover and all the others are wannabes.

I'm sure you've all seen the new Levi's commercials advertising their skinny straight leg jeans with someone covering Johnny Cash- Walk The Line.  I googled the shit out of the commercial trying to come up with the artists and came up with this:

"It is a modern version of the Johnny Cash song "Walk the line" the female version is sung by Megan Wyler, an American singer, she does not have any commercially released work as of today. The male version is Adem IIhan, who performs in the British band Fridge."

I like both.
who likes movies anyway

my least favorite version of Walk the Line is by those three brothers, Los somethingrather.  that sucked.  my favorite version, don't think is the best version, is by dolly parton.

Thinking about putting together a cd of cover songs, even better if they're live cuts.

i was thinking about stuff like John Frusciante's Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, Jolene by the White Stripes, Comfortably Numb by Van Morrison (I know this is still Pink Floyd too, but you get my point......)

Any suggestions?

First, I'd suggest...

http://xixax.com/index.php?board=17.0

Then I'd suggest a cool cover of "What a Wonderful World" by Nick Cave and the Flaming Lips.  Also, the "Moon River" cover by Vincent Gallo, John Frusciante and PJ Harvey.

From Idle Chatter to Real Life Soundtracks. Doesn't bother me, but it would be more fitting.
