Another look at Cover Songs
I was reading an enjoyable post by Andrew Porter last week, as he shared his favorite cover tunes. His number one was "All along the Watchtower" written by Bob Dylan and covered by Jimmy Hendrix. As I wrote in the comments, I love that tune!
Building on Andrews post, I thought I would share my top four covers just to add to the conversation and share some great music on a Monday.
So, without further ado. . .
Number Four: Disturbed covering Simon and Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence"

And, just for giggles because I can, an honorable mention. . . Closing with "Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels. And a good Saloon in every single town. . ."
The Counting Crows performing "Return of the Grievous Angel" originally written and performed by Gram Parsons.
