RE: Under The Covers ssc

Greatest cover of all time -- Elvis doing Gentle On My Mind.

Song was originally by someone else (forget his name). THen it was done by a country singer. Then, another great country singer, Elvis (that's what he wanted to be known as) did the song and it is simply awesome, surreal, wistful, and heartbreaking. It is forever my favorite Elvis song.

I know a 'cover' is anytime that someone does a song that someone else originally did. To me, some 'covers' defy this term because they are so great themselves. If, for example, Justin Bieber did Hound Dog, NO ONE would say that Bieber is covering "Big Mama" Thornton who first did the song. They would say he is covering an Elvis song. I think that some covers eclipse their originals or their originals (such as the first recording of Gentle On My Mind) are not that famous.

But yeah, the Stones are an awesome cover band
