    No, but I'm sure it's genius. I never saw Cash or Waylon...I really need to see Willie while he's still touring.

    These guys are great. I like Waylon, too. And Waylon's kid can really sing

    Boys of Summer - Don Henley, Ataris
    The Real Me - The Who, WASP
    If You Don't Know Me By Now - Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Simply Red
    Since I Don't Have You - Skyliners, GnR
    Last Caress - Misfits, Metallica
    I'll Be There - Jackson 5, Mariah (well before the pre-slut days; how I miss her from then)

    Didn't Rod Stewart also do Downtown Train? Or was that a different tune entirely?

    I believe Brian Wilson also has done covers of Barenaked Ladies' "Brian Wilson." That would seem to be the ultimate for this list, no?

    I, too, missed Waylon and Cash, but I've seen Willie three times now. He's slowing up, so go soon.

    Montezuma -- Damn. I've only got Otis and PJ.

    Oh, and Scarlet Begonias -- The Dead and Sublime.
  9. I still hate Sheryl Crow for murdering Guns N Roses' Sweet Child O' Mine.

    One-ply whore.

    Uncle Tupelo's versions of "Moonshiner" (Dylan) and "Great Atomic Power" (The Louvin Brothers)

    This thread got me to throw the Two Rooms disc on on my iPod.

    Sting's cover of Elton John's "Come Down in Time" is really soulful.
    And Joe Cocker's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" is outstanding.
    I could go on, but I'll stop with Rod Stewart's "Your Song."

    Here's one I'd have never remembered without looking at my ipod:

    Down in the Boondocks -- Billy Jo Royal and New Riders of the Purple Sage.
