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:
