The Eggman Best Covered Songs:

no order

Johnny Winter - JJf (esspecially when he screams ROCK AND ROLL!!! at the begining)

Otis Redding - Satisfaction (in this version you can see where Jagger gets ideas from changing this song around, notable in Hyde Park)

DEVO - Satisfaction (only because it was in CASINO)

so far thats it

WTF is Ryan Adams If he don't play a resembles of Rock then why do you even talk about him???

only Adams that sounds like the only Adams I know is Bryan Adams and he plays rock...or well used to

Didn't know Otis Redding was a rocker. Ryan Adams plays country rock and is quite well known these days. Check out his excellent cd Gold.

beer Hey Happy Motherfucker, i think it is Alejendro Escavedo that you're thinking of. He covered Sway.

08-25-02 07:53 AM
gypsymofo60 Does anybody remember 'The Residents'?......19th Nervous breakdown?.......Paper bags on thier heads, circa..1978/79....Seriously though; the best cover imho was The Gunners; 'Sympathy'....they didn't try to copy it, and they didn't try to out do the original, D'ya know what I mean?.....Oh! and who could ignore The Flying Burrito Bros.-'Wild Horses', actualy released prior to The Stones original, I think!....The Who's 'The Last Time' & 'Under My Thumb' are pretty good too.

Montrose- Connection
J. Winter did very nice covers
and the Flamin Groovies too
Joe Cocker- H.T. Woman
Melanie- Ruby Tuesday
Luther Allison- You can't always get . .
Handsome Family-Faraway Eyes
Eric Burdon - Paint it black
Roger Chapman-Let's spend the night together
Townes van Zandt- Dead Flowers
Jason & the Scorchers - 19th Nervous Breakdown

#5 Black Crowes "Silver Train"

stonedinaustralia i won't say these are the best but they haven't been mentioned yet both have their merits (awaiting abuse on the second)

bowie's LSTNT - cool by me - i really like the break he added where it all fall's apart ("let's do it.. let's make..." etc.)

bette midler's - "beast of burden" - once you get over the fact that she's essentially broadway and not "rock n roll" -i like quite like it (on the rare occasions that i hear it) she belts it out like a trouper and she's got the sass

i've already sung the praises of the cowboy junkies "dead flowers" in another thread

i generally like all the female vocalists that give it a go and very few of the male - melanies "ruby tuesday" is another, already mentioned, that i have always liked

it's a pity nina simone didn't tackle one in her prime when she did those dylan and bee gees (yeah, weird but she makes them work) covers - her take on the beatles "revolution" cut lennon's to shreds (imho)- she could've really done something with the likes of GS or YCAGWYW

to close, you would really have to put otis' "satisfaction" in a league of it's own - imagine how m&k would have felt having him do one of their tunes - 'tho that muddy waters' version of LSTNT (which i haven't heard) sounds like it would be right up there

Bluzian Oh, and Leon Russell doin' Jumpin' Jack Flash!!!!!!!!!! :-)
08-26-02 11:56 PM
Bluzian The Muddy Waters version of LSTNT is an instant hard-on!!!!
Its' waaaaaaaaa~aaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY better than any stones
attempt! Musically, it sounds like Cream, (Sunshine of Your LOve)
to the lyrics of Let's Spend... but the way Muddy ad-libs his
way thru, trying to cajole some honey into spendin' the night
with him is fucking wicked!!!!! *LOLOL* The song is off
"Electric Mud" produced by Marshall Chess (I'm sure you know
who he is) and it's from 1968, at an attempt to make Muddy
psychadelic, er, "electric mud", get it?

I emplore you to stop at nothing to getting this record/track!
The liner notes, pictures, quality is bar none. If I knew
more about technology, I'd send it to you right now man.
