On Repeat

"For the Turnstiles"... the Be Good Tanyas covering Neil Young off of their 2006 album Hello Love.

This song is good. So good it has me thinking about my all time, top five, desert island covers.

  1. Top 5 desert island covers for my money...

    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)
