    Lucy In The Sky cover by William Shatner. So bad it’s hilarious. Leonard Nimoy’s Proud Mary is the equal of it.

  2. Gary K. says:

    Dan Fogelberg’s “Rhythm Of The Rain”

    I must agree most of these are lousy. Personally I love Tom Jones but really didn’t care for his cover of the Prince song “Kiss”. It got him some much needed and deserved viability, but it didn’t work for me.

    I also didn’t like Lenny Karvitz version of “American Woman”. I thought it lacked the right fire.

    David Lee Roth – California Girls
    Joan Jett – Crimson & Clover
    Tiffany – I Saw Him Standing There

    Those Spears remakes are absolutely HORRIBLE…should have never been allowed to produce. Hopefully today’s kids will figure out, that the originals are 100 times superior!

      I mean really Britney, can’t you come up with your OWN music??…..”Baby..One More Time” was good.

    What about Shaun Cassidy’s cover of “Do Run Run” by The Ronnets?

  7. Earl Blair says:

    Don’t forget Gale SAtorm’s vover of Smiley Lewis’ piano-thumpin’ rocker, “I Hear You Knockin'” and Pat Boone’s merciless murdering of Little Richard’s “Tutti Frutti” and “Rip It Up.”
