COVERS THAT ARE BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL➕

  1. Bridge Over Troubled Water / Johnny Cash
    I never liked this song until I heard Cash's version. Now it moves me deeply. http://bit.ly/1GstLQy
  2. Every Grain of Sand / Emmy Lou Harris
    I loved the original but Emmy's is more haunting. http://bit.ly/1GsBv54
  3. Can't Help Falling in Love / U2
    Sublime take on an otherwise uninteresting song. http://bit.ly/1R9TsbL
  4. Clay Pigeons / John Prine
    The Blaze Foley original is great. The Prine version is better. http://bit.ly/1KoTQ5j
  5. Knockin' on Heavens Door / Dave Grisman and Jerry Garcia
    This is probably blasphemy but I never though much of this song until I caught this Grisman/Garcia version on iTunes Radio. http://bit.ly/1GtOmnv
  6. My Mexican Home / John Prine
    This is a cheat but the original studio release of this song is twangy and forgettable. A rare miss for Prine. But the reworked live version, finally released on the "In Person & On Satge" album is brooding, powerful, and sad and one of my favorites. http://bit.ly/1Hxb6o7
  7. Cocaine by Eric Clapton

  8. Love vigilantes by iron & wine
    Granted I love love love new order but this version kills

  9. Traveling riverside blues by led Zeppelin (box set)
    I'd say I prefer this one 1% more than the Robert Johnson version, but that said aren't many of their songs uncredited covers?

  10. Sweet Jane/Cowboy Junkies

  11. Blinded By The Light - Manfred Mann's Earth Band
    Springsteen did the orig and it's eh at best. THIS ONE RULES
