Yeah I'm so bored I could puke playing blues rock covers in my power trio. I keep telling my guitard we need to take a few cheesy old pop standards and give them our own treatment AKA the Gimmes but he's not into it. He says "I don't want to do that. I'm a 'SERIOUS' musician."

Whatever

Nice. We actually do a slow to fast to slow punk version of "House of the Rising Sun" we arranged but I want to do like the Gimmes and take cheesy but classic songs we normally wouldn't play and rock them out.

Hey I haven't heard the Gimmes do "Happy Birthday" but the NOFX version I've heard on one of their live albums probably wouldn't be a good way to go..."Happy Birthday Amy your not special...."

Yes covering Every Little Thing by the Beatles far outshined the original, for my money.

I have to disagree with this one! IMO the original is better. The Boss' version has a simplicity and funky feel to it that I prefer to the Manfred Mann version. Plus you can actually understand what Bruce is singing. It's Deuce not Douche!

As far as songs I prefer the cover version to the original:
The Power Station's version of "Get It On (Bang A Gong)"
It has a cool groove, that funky bass break courtesy of John Taylor, a catchy guitar solo and Robert Palmer's voice.

ZZ Top doing "I Thank You" and Tori Amos' version of "Landslide." Two of my favorite covers that have not already been mentioned.

And Of course, "Morning Dew" as done by the Grateful Dead. When they did it well it was thunderous.

Yep. Good choice and most people don't realize that The Bobby Fuller Four version was a cover of the original by The Crickets (after Buddy Holly)

Joan Jett probably deserves a lot more credit in this thread. Most of her hits were covers.
