Cover Me

Inspired by a crowd sourcing request from The Hired Guns on Twitter today, I compiled a baker’s dozen of some favorite cover songs. This was no easy task. It turns out, there are a lot of really good cover songs. So, by no means is this list definitive. But I’ve playlist tested it on my iPod and it seems to hold together well. So take it for a spin and let me know what you think. What cover songs do you suggest?

All Along the Watchtower – Jimi Hendrix (Bob Dylan)
Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again – Cat Power (Bob Dylan)
Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley (Leonard Cohen)
Redemption Song – Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros (Bob Marley & the Wailers)
Hurt – Johnny Cash (Nine Inch Nails)
Wonderwall – Ryan Adams (Oasis)
Love Hurts – Gram Parsons (Everly Brothers)
Sweet Jane – Cowboy Junkies (Velvet Underground)
Little Wing – Stevie Ray Vaughan (Jimi Hendrix)
The Man Who Sold The World – Nirvana (David Bowie)
With A Little Help From My Friends – Joe Cocker (The Beatles)
Stand by Me – John Lennon (Ben E. King)
What a Wonderful World – Joey Ramone (Louis Armstrong)
