    Five Finger Death Punch's cover of "Bad Company" is much more interesting than the original Bad Company version of "Bad Company"

    Manfed Mann--all of bands--doing a superior job on Blinded by the Light. Nazereth with this flight tonight is another. Another great effort is Traffic with John Barleycorn Must Die--a traditional song from the 14th century.

    Another interesting collaboration type one is Stereolab/nurse with wound doing an update of Neu's Hallogallo. They certainly pulled it off. Or Mas Y Mas doing Philip Glass' Koyaanisqatsi.

    Dusty's song....

    But then Joss?



    But I think my favorite is now

    Sarah Connor - Son Of Preacher Man

    Many I can think of, but I REALLY prefer this version to the Eagles' version. It isn't even close.

    Since I cannot find a full version on Youtube, I'll go with this one:

    Here's one I found more recently. Though I like Ricky Nelson's version, I think Las Ondas Marteles does him one better. (Their version of Suzy Q also is first rate.)
