    I was going to post these in the What Are You Listening To thread but thought there's a thread opportunity in its own right. I just listened to these on headphones, have someone outside running an open air garage, compressor/generator running full pelt for over an hour. Post songs you really like and covers of which you approve, also feel free to post covers you do not approve of and tell us why.

    I almost want to say I prefer Joe Cocker's cover.
    Then again, Joe does a good job of covering anything.

    Mostly for the vocals.
    Don't care for the sloppy lead guitar, which I gather was supposed to be inspired by sitar music.

    His playing on that makes me vomit with jealousy.

    I think this is a really good cover of a song we are all familiar with:
