But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Joe Cocker & The Greaseband - Lennon & McCartney's "With a Little Help from My Friends" from 1969.

No disrespect intended to Otis Redding, who is the motherfuckin' MAN, but Aretha rocked that song hard.

(The original version's horn section makes it worth posting, though.)

RE: The Best Cover of Another Band's Song
Oh, and this isn't so much a "band" covering another band's song as it is one guy on YouTube, but I think it's one of the best, most respectful (pun intended) covers of another's work I've seen, with the exception of Disturbed's amazing cover of Sound of Silence.





Secondly, as amazing as Disturbed sounds in the studio, his live performance on the Conan show blew the recorded one away, I think.

I'm not posting sad kermit anymore.

























I mean it.






Aw, fuck me.

RE: The Best Cover of Another Band's Song
I grew up with all kinds of punk but these days I listen mostly Alt Bluegrass and the like so I like finding Bluegrass versions of those songs.







I really like the total tonal change to that Greenday song, taking a song about apathy and disillusionment and making it sound hopeful and upbeat without changing a word.














How has this one not made it on here yet?

RE: The Best Cover of Another Band's Song
My favorite cover doesn't have a youtube vid -- it's my buddy Norm Draper's version of Jackson Browne's "Running on Empty" on solo acoustic six-string. Norm brings a nuance and sensitivity to the song that really limns the lyric.

If y'all are ever in Hill Country in March or October, stop on in -- Norm does our local open-mic and kills it every time.
