None of this is exactly "new".

I Thank You -- ZZ Top's version is different enough from the Sam & Dave original to stand on it's own. Sam & Dave had a hit single, backed with Wrap It Up , which, in turn, was covered fabulously by The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

The Black Crowes' Hard To Handle is a passable cover of the song originally cooked to perfection by Otis Redding.

Here's a thread with some discussion of song covers.

I think Edna covered what I would have said :grin: :thumbsup: Thanks ji :bow:

Yes, Radhi introduced me into Kula Shaker :bow: :bow: :bow: (the bows are for Radhi... ;) )

Cake also makes good covers. "I will survive" -Gloria Gaynor´s is the bet- is pretty good. And I know they cover other songs.

Smashmouth make a copy of "Why can´t b we friends" and "I´m a believer".

The Lemonheads did a few covers. Their first single was a cover of Suzanne Vega's song Luka. And their version of Mrs. Robinson is very popular too. Apart from that Evan Dando (lead singer) also did a cover of Knowing Me, Knowing You for an ABBA Tribute album. :)
