    I stumbled across this on Friday. This is one of the worst professionally produced cover renditions I’ve ever seen. Not that it was poorly performed.. but whoever arranged this cover…yikes. Much better video on mute.

    I think JJ Cale’s is the best version.

    The original is better most of the time. It's easier to list the instances when it's not. Right now I can only think of Joe Cocker turning a ditty by The Beatles into a rhythm and blues epic (With a Little Help From My Friends).

    I’d make a funny comment here but I’d somehow derail the thread if I did.

    I always thought Clappers' version was dull, much preferred the original.

    I know. It almost makes me believe in progress in music.

    Yes. It has a good beat and you can dance to it.
