Top 5 desert island covers for my money...Friends and neighbors, dispute at will. The comment box is yours.
1. Twist & Shout, The Beatles (pure fun, so good you forget it was originally an Isley Brothers song
2. Hallelujah , Jeff Buckley (Leonard Cohen writes great songs, but Buckley sings it better than anyone. The Jon Bon Jovi cover of this song should not be on any top 5 lists.
3. Hazy Shade of Winter, The Bangles (just better than Simon & Garfunkel)
4. Hard to Handle, The Black Crowes (pure rock bliss)
5. All Along the Watchtower, Jimi Hendrix (simply the best cover song ever).
Bonus Holiday Track: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band's "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" (come on, its the Boss)
