Eva Cassiday's Somewhere over the Rainbow

Best cover of Sweet Jane, performed by Mott The Hoople. Some characteristic Mick Ralphs guitar work towards the end:-

On a lighter note, from ISIHAC (New Series just started!). 'Girlfriend in a Coma', to the tune of 'Tiptoe through the Tulips'.

Circle Jerks brilliant cover of CCR's Fortunate Son.

Its got you in its grip before you're born

It's done with the use of a dice and board

It lets you think you're king but you're really a pawn

Good version

I was listening to CCR's Willy And The Poor Boys the other day. First time I'd listened to it in ages.

I was listening to CCR's Greatest Hits CD the other day. Excellent but I realised it hasn't got Born On The Bayou on it.

You need to get John's version (or a copy of Bayou Country). That's a major omission .

I like The Sword's cover of ZZ Top's Cheap Sunglasses. They pretty much nail it.

this is a good version of nick caves "the mercy seat" but not a patch on the original.

Now this is the Law of the Jungle --
as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
but the Wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk
the Law runneth forward and back --
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

and from the sublime to the ridiculous.
cave sings the seekers.

Now this is the Law of the Jungle --
as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
but the Wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk
the Law runneth forward and back --
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
