Since I already know my selection and there is available time today, I going ahead with my post for the Original Bean's music challenge.
This week (week 3 of her challenge/game) Jene is asking for best cover song. I expect she will have her selection up on Monday.
I enjoy covers but I have discovered there are people who don't and will even say that cover singers ruin the original version. My wife says that. I find the opposite, I believe a cover has the possibility of improving the song. Now any song I covered would be so bad that there would be a rush to cover me in rotten tomatoes or something, but I'm not a singer.
If you have read "A Few Clowns Short" for awhile, then you might recall that I'm a fan of Sheryl Crow.
I only need to decide between a cover by Eric Clapton or Sheryl.
It's not unusual to find people loving a cover song and not even know it's a cover. That mostly happens with young people hearing a great song and not being old enough to remember the original. I remember this song by Michael Jackson but it does go back to his Jackson 5 days, so it has been awhile.
Sheryl Crow (who was a backup singer for MJ once) does a wonderful energetic rendition of "I Want You Back". In the following clip you also get to see some of her dance moves.
