Thread Name: Shouldn't have been covered (songs)
Subject: RE: BS: Shouldn't have been covered
Crap covers of "Baker Street" and "Wonderful tonight" were perpetrated by boy-bands a couple of years back.

Clapton version of "I shot the sheriff" - nowhere near as good as Marley.

And for good measure, the Don Maclean versions of "Everyday" and "Crying" make me skip tracks on the CD PDQ!

Mind you, it's quite amusing seeing this theme on a folk/blues site. I mean, if it's not been around for 100 years and doesn't relate to some historical incident no-one alive can remember, then it's not real folk music is it? ;-)
