Thanks to all the listeners who sent me links to this. My Google Alert also linked me to no less than 20 different postings about this article. That’s some pretty unusual press COVERage. Pun intended.
Celine Dion’s cover of “You Shook Me All NIght Long” has been voted worst cover song by Total Guitar Magazine. The current issue lists the best and worst in the field of cover songs, as judged by music experts. Jimi Hendrix’ “All Along The Watchtower” was named best cover song. I can’t argue with that.
But The Mike Flowers Pops’ “Wonderwall” as the fifth worst? Have these guys not heard Kevin Rowland’s album “My Beauty”?
