Five Best...Terribly Awesome Cover Songs

#5. Neil Diamond's "Kentucky Woman" by Deep Purple

#4. Wings' "Live and Let Die" by Guns 'N' Roses...or...Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" by Guns 'N' Roses.

#3. Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours" by the California Raisins

#2. Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" by the Maynard Ferguson Big Band

#1. The Village People's "YMCA" by Gregorious

Here's an actual good one: I confess that I thought "Good Lovin'" was a Young Rascals original, but little did I know that it was first recorded by the Olympics. Here's there version, which is sort of like a cover for me, thinking the way I did. It's a great song, no matter who sings it--even the Dead.
