Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

I think William Shatner's version of Pulp's Common People is better than the original, Shatner's vocal inflections really make this work, he gives it this great snark, and Joe Jackson is great.

And I love Nina Gordons' cover of NWA Straight Outta Compton even though it's so wrong (or maybe right...)

Black Magic Woman - Santana (originally a Fleetwood Mac song)
I never knew that was a cover but I'm digging Mac's version right now....
