Oh yeah, this is what happens when one legend covers a great song by another legend.

This is my favourite Bruce cover EVER.

FURTHER ON UP THE ROAD - JOHNNY CASH

I am not a fan of covers. To me it seems like an easy road away from the own lack of inspiration. Also, I strongly believe that there are a lot of songs that shouldn't be covered because 9 out of 10 times I like the original version way better. However, there are exceptions. Think of GnR's Knockin On Heavens Door.

Someone mentioned Dropkick Murphys in this thread and that reminded me of their cover of Fortunate Son which I think is one of the few covers that are actually better then the original version.

Dancing in the Dark by Amy McDonald Oli? Seriously. How can you possibly like that ?

I salute you,
TS

Awesome - I have had a hell of a time finding anything on youtube lately. I don't like their new setup at all

I know the general opinion of McFly is not very positive on this board, but I think they did a really cool band-acoustic cover of Born to run....

I am not talking about liking or not liking Amy McDonald. I am talking about liking her covering a Bruce song that, in my opinion, shouldn't be covered as well as many other songs.

Has nothing to do with me liking AC/DC or not you slacker !

I salute you,

Oops - must have misread, I thought you were insulting dear Amy

I like it! And Dancing In The Dark is in one of my all time favourite Bruce songs so I'm pretty protective over it.

And if not for Amy a bunch of stupid people, such as my own mother (love you), would not have realised the actual lyrics are pretty depressive.

And also, as a big fan of the song's lyrics, it's nice to listen to Amy's slow version on a dark day instead of Bruce's.

And that, my friend, is why I like Dancing In The Dark by Amy Macdonald.
