    ITT post a great cover song followed by the original (The original doesn't have to be great).




    Not a far deviation from the original, but Bowie does it justice.

    Good cover, but I'm one of the few who loves the original much more...

    You ever hear Wu Tang Clan's version of Run DMC's Sucka MCs?

    this one will take a while but i highly recommend taking the time to listen...this is basically the first incarnation of primus along with an extra guitar player, keyboards and sax...they play a live version of pink floyd's animals recorded at the great american music hall in san francisco on 10/8 and 10/9/2000...its pretty much dead on true to the original..

    Blue Cheer did a much better version than The Who.

    I caught that on Deep Tracks a few years ago. I have the whole recording and it's great.

    Every time I hear somebody say "Elvis stole the black man's music," I think of this. Listen to the two versions. Same song, but radically different music.
