Peter Saint-Andre writes about some favorite cover songs. Here are some of mine that come to mind:
- Dave Mason's "All Along the Watchtower" is a cover of Hendrix's cover.
- Peter Frampton's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".
- The Pretenders' "Needle and the Damage Done"
- The Pretenders again: "Angel of the Morning"
- Not Fade Away (Remembering Buddy Holly) - various artists
- Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles - various country artists
- Influence - Shaw and Blades
- An Acoustic Tribute to Prince - various female artists, I found this on itunes.
- Run Devil Run - Paul McCartney covering artists who influenced him
Most covered song on my ipod: "Sweet Jane" at seven different artists. I have almost as many covers (6) of "Within You Without You".
