under the covers

When covers of songs are done well, they can be even sweeter the second or third time around. Here are a few of my favorites. What are yours?



Free Fallin (Live) by John Mayer

Sexual Healing by Ben Harper

How Deep is Your Love by The Bird and The Bee

Last Kiss by Pearl Jam

Wonderwall by Ryan Adams

The Heart of the Matter by India Arie

Oh man! I love Ban Harper's Sexual Healing too. AND Johnny Cash's Hurt. Good picks.

I like Pearl Jams cover (live) of Little Wing (Jimi Hendrix song). Come on Eileen cover by Save Ferris. Gosh, SO MANY good ones.

So many good covers, so little time! I'm also a big fan of Johnny Cash's Hurt (& Johnny Cash in general), as welll as the following;

Such Great Heights - Iron & Wine (better then the original, in my opinon)

Down By The River - Dave Matthews

Use Me - Fiona Apple

Imagine - Jack Johnson

Paint it Black - Vanessa Carlton

Across the Universe - (I like this song so much, I'd listen to anyone sing it!)
