I love Adele. Such a great, great voice. Very refreshing nowadays.

I was driving to work this morning, and at a red light, the lady next to me was jamming to Adele :lol:

I started a band back in October 2010 called Before Perils and since then we've written about 10 songs, one of them being a Led Zeppelin Medley that we wrote when we were asked to open for Zepparella, even though im more into writing my own songs I thought it would be a good idea considering who we were opening up for and to pay a tribute as well to one of the best bands of all time. Check it out and let me know your thoughts!

Gillian Welch and David Rawlings covering Neil Young's "Pocahontas". This song served as the inspiration behind "Me, Marlon Brando, Marlon Brando And I" from R.E.M.'s new album, Collapse Into Now. Both songs involve imagined conversations with Marlon Brando.

When I went to listen to Neil Young's Cinnamon Girl, I was surprised to find so many artists had covered this song.

They include The Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, John Entwistle, Joe Walsh, Radiohead, and Type O Negative.

The envelope please, and the winner is............

John Entwistle did a great cover! ..............:) missy

R.E.M.'s version of Vic Chesnutt's "Sponge" which originally appeared on Sweet Relief II: Gravity of the Situation - The Songs of Vic Chesnutt. Lots of great interpretations of Vic's work on here from The Smashing Pumpkins to the Indigo Girls and Soul Asylum. Sadly, Vic died on Christmas Day 2009. He went into a coma after taking an overdose of muscle relaxants earlier that same week.

Jose Feliciano did a cover of The Doors classic, "Light My Fire" in 1968.

He also did a cover of The Mamas and the Papas "California Dreaming'" the same year.

A few years ago I finally heard Jeff Beck's version of this which is when it dawned on me that his rendition was more of the inspiration behind this cover than the original by Stevie Wonder. The Beck clip is of pretty poor quality but is still well worth watching.

I much prefer CSN's version to Joni's, truth be told.

Same here. She's great, but IMO this was better :peace:

Okay, I get that not everyone is as high on Joni as I am, lol. Actually I like CSN's Woodstock cover equally to Joni's.

But would you agree that the following Joni original slightly edges out the k.d lang cover?

The original "Help Me" written and performed by Joni Mitchell.........

And the great cover done by k.d. lang.
