  • I wish I can find the link again, but I was reading yesterday about a Jimi Hendrix song that has been covered by over 50 acts since he recorded it in 1967. I think it was 'Purple Haze': The single peaked at number three in the UK but only number 65 in the US, where it was released on June 19, a month after the UK LP "Are You Experienced" and three months after the UK single. In March 2005, Q magazine ranked "Purple Haze" at number one in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. The Rolling Stone magazine placed the song at No. 17 in their "500 Greatest Songs of All Time." A pop version by Dion even reached #72 in Canada in February 1969. Australian music TV channel MAX placed 'Purple Haze' at #17 on their 2008 countdown 'Rock Songs: Top 100'.

  • Knocking on heavens door. "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" is a song written and performed by Bob Dylan for the soundtrack of the 1973 film Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid. Although it was originally recorded as an acoustic folk song, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" has been covered extensively in many styles, most famously by British blues-rocker Eric Clapton and by American hard-rock group Guns N' Roses. Other artists to record the song include The Grateful Dead, Bon Jovi, Mad Zize, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, The Sisters of Mercy, Bryan Ferry, Meir Ariel, The Alarm, Mark Knopfler, Bruce Springsteen, Heaven, The Lost Dogs, Randy Crawford, Babyface, Beau Jocques, Chaozz, Avril Lavigne, Zé Ramalho, Antony and the Johnsons, Warren Zevon (whose version was released two weeks before his death), Roger Waters, Heaven and Bob Marley. Duets on the song include a team-up of the South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo and U.S. country diva Dolly Parton, and the Red Army Chorus and Ensemble with the Leningrad Cowboys. Ruth Lorenzo performed the song on The X Factor (UK series 5) when she was in the bottom two and managed to pass on to the following week. Her performance was the most viewed on youtube the following day, garnering over 50,000 views within 24 hours. Although it is not a cover, Gabrielle's UK number one single "Rise" samples extensively from the track.[clarify]

  • Great question! I've got four questions sort of hanging out there in the Music category - not a lot of activity on them - about Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart and Cole Porter. For each, I asked for favorite song & performer. That was back in early August. But with your question, I'll bring up those names again. To me, the loooooooong list of their songs are American classics. And just for the heck of it, here's just two of the gazillions of great standards out there: -- "I've Got Rhythm" sung by Dorothy Dandridge -- "Sentimental Journey" sung by Doris Day (doesn't start singing til about 1 1/2 minutes into it) -- "Fly Me to the Moon" sung by Frank Sinatra LOL - ok, I'll stop now. :)
