Skipshot, I agree it doesn’t hold a candle to the original but somehow I think even Jimi would get a kick out of that creative, talented dudes stamp of light hearted fun on “foxy lady”.

“Pressure Drop” by Toots and the Maytals is wonderful, but The Specials added their juju vibe (extra guitar riffs, fun-loving keyboard, increased tempo, and those drums!) to really make my butt shake involuntarily - https://youtu.be/IWweHBpscDU

SRV’s cover of Hendrix’s Voodoo Child is superior, IMHO.

Look what I found!  Motörhead covering Bowie’s “Heroes.”  I like the revised lyrics at the end, “And the shame was a divided city.”  Rest in power, Lemmy.  Stay funky, David.

(By the way, the dang computer recognized Motörhead and automatically added the umlaut.  Somebody at Apple is a fan.)

I also like the breathy gravitas of Peter Gabriel’s cover of heroes:

Puddles the clown does Ozzy’s “Crazy Train.”  Don’t laugh, really.  The dude can sing!

I am on the fence with this cover of “Foxy Lady” by Jimi Hendrix:  https://youtu.be/-IxHM3qsYW8

I dig the zip tie fret board on a 3-string whatchamahoozit.

Boy, was I wrong.  I’ll take Jimi all day - https://youtu.be/zv97c3W6lw8

So I’m totally late to the party, but I’m having trouble deciding if Stevie improved The Beatles’ “We Can Work It Out.”  -  https://youtu.be/MkF_u-_mm0Q

Saw Chaka do it many years ago, she got something going there…

Anyone for a little ‘Whiskey in the Jar’?

The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses” sounds like they were drunk when they recorded it.  I like The Sundays’ cover better.

You say that like it’s a bad thing.

I need to correct myself.  Everybody who covered this song did a better job than the Stones.

I was a big Aerosmith fan as a kid, and never was turned on to rap, but. . . I’ve always liked Run-DMC’s version of “Walk This Way” better than the original, and I really like the original.
