    Buddy Holly's original is still far superior to both the Stones and the Dead.


    My favorite cover: Leon Russell and Joe Cocker doing Dylan's "Girl From the North Country" on Mad Dogs & Englishmen

    Holy shit, I just remembered You Are The Blood is a cover, which right here and now /thread for me. But it's sort of cheating if the original isn't that widely known, right?

    This isn't the whole song, but it's good enough to get a nice feel. I almost posted the version they actually did with the artist in Dallas last year, but that wouldn't 100% be a cover.

    My Morning Jacket - Tyrone (Erykah Badu cover)

    Song starts 1:00 in.

    I'm still convinced Guy Garvey is secretly the affably meek alter-ego of some sort of superhero.

    Also, well done team on getting this far without Johnny Cash's Hurt or One.

    If he is, then I hope he is the one to save me if I am ever in trouble. I'm sure he won't have time for a drink, but I will still ask.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I actually don't like Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt." I don't care what it means or what he was feeling at the time, I just simply don't like how it sounds. He sounds too much like a quivering old man for my liking. That opinion seems to be blasphemous among music fans.
