Tuesday Tunes 2/24/09

Here's this week's playlist. 20 songs for you listening pleasure. The original version of the song is immediately followed by what I determined to be a quality cover of said song.

I'm taking suggestions on weekly themes.

Hush rocks! I had no idea Deep Purple's version was a cover. Only one I'd ever heard.

Theme idea: Educated Rockers.

Might require some research. Brian May. Boston. Kiss. Steely Dan. Alison Krause. Dexter Holland.

Pretty sure all have more than a G.E.D.

Oh how I love this list! Must go download when I get real internet again!!! Good choices. I think the Animals did "dont let me be misunderstood" first. I could be wrong.

I had no idea Deep Purple was a cover either until I did the research. Like the suggestion. Research will take a little bit but you've already given me six names.


The Animals are a cover. Simone did the original in 1964 with The Animals covering in 1965. This version is from the Kill Bill Vol 1 soundtrack. The group is called Santa Esmaralda

excellent list Milky! I will visit it more than once this week.

Alison Krause is an excellent suggestion, she has an AWESOME deut with Robert Plant. I believe it is called Raising Sand.

Maybe some Steppenwolf, or the ever favorite Steve Miller.
