Old? How dare you. I can remember seeing that when it came out. I was at uni. If it's old then I'm like really old.

Whatever happened to the best cover versions threads? Oh hang on here's one...


Here's a few covers by the Cowboy Junkies, who have written more than a few decent tunes of their own over the years:

Edit.

Joe Cockers' best cover was WALHFMF. A bit obvious perhaps but true.

Melanie's version of "Ruby Tuesday" is far superior the Stones' version
Kirsty's version of "Days" is better than the Kink's version too.

Don't talk soft. Its not bad but nowhere near The Kinks.

Whole Lotta Love, Led Zeppeilin, but who's version of which song is a bit crazy. Its the Willie Dixon song recorded by Muddy Waters and adapted by the Small Faces before Page and Plant attacked it.

Certainly a ground breaking rework of a blues classic.

Nah, it's way overblown. Delta Lady is about Rita Coolidge, written by Leon Russell when he was her bloke. Joe really liked both of them and did the song more than justice.
