1.  Ain't Wastin' Time - The Allman Brothers
2.  Feelin' Alright - Joe Cocker
3.  My Old School - Steely Dan
4.  Third Rate Romance - Amazing Rythem Aces
5. Honky Tonk Woman -  Rolling Stones
 
The list may change if you ask me tomorrow.


1. Good call with Ain't wasting time no more... My favorite Allman Brothers tune.
2. I love Joe Cocker but in this case I prefer the Traffic Dave Mason Original. For Cocker... You can leave your hat on or Delta Lady.
3. Good call on My Old School... But I still got FM and Deacon Blues ahead of it.
4. Third Rate Romance... That doesn't fit your list.
5. I love Honky Tonk Women... How can you not but the have have so many. Dead Flowers... Monkey Man.... Sympathy... Tumbling Dice... Almost anything with Taylor on Guitar.

My list:

1. Down by the River -- Neil Young or any cover of.
2. Since I've been Loving You - Led Zeppelin... Zeppelin and Zeppelin only.
3. Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix or any cover of.
4. Don't Thing Twice It's alright - Bob Dylan or any cover of.
5. Bell Bottom Blues -- Derek and the Dominoes

Great list...except for the Henrix:)

 

And you're totally WRONG on the Steely Dan comment.  WRONG I tells you.  Just...wrong.

OK...7 songs.

 

It's a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong.  

 

And only Louis Armstrong.  

 

All other versions suffer by comparison.

Chief, if you like this version, you'll like his version of 'La vie en rose' too

In two pitches we go from a 4-2 lead to a 5-4 deficit. Nothing's going right right now.

Throw Ella in there, too, and that's the real summit.
