Has there ever been a cover tune that killed the original? To quote Otis Redding on "Respect": "Now I'd like to do an Aretha Franklin song. Yeah, I wrote it, but after hearing her do it, it's no longer my song." To me, it's hard to decide if the Brothers Johnson's cover of "Strawberry Letter 23" was better than Suggie's. They both kick arse. Jamiroquai's cover of "Sunny" was better than Booby Hebb's, IMO.
