    Default Best Cover Songs of All Time

    Let's hear about those cover songs that did justice to the original.

    Here's one that stays true to the original, but is harder and faster (and so good):

    You could argue that Hendrix cover of Watchtower, the Dead’s cover of When I Paint My Maserpice and Joe Cocker’s cover of Little Help From My Friends are better than the originals.

    Other good to great covers of JJ Cale include Call Me the Breeze, After Midnight, and Cocaine.

    The live recording of Les Claypool doing the entire Pink Floyd album Animals is definitely worth a listen
