My personal fave JJ Cale made a living by "underplaying " his own tunes. The "fast gun" players who heard them felt compelled to "improve" them . Ole JJ just sat home, loved on his lady, wrote more tunes, and cashed checks. I.E. After Midnight and Cocaine by ClaptonCall me the Breeze and Same Old Story By SkynyrdMagnolia Poco Here are some of the people who covered just his first album: https://www.jjcale.com/covers-naturally-1972Tom Petty cover of Travelin Light https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UG6JMBTx2Q
A trick question to some extent as there have been many great covers of well known songs. Somewhere I have, or had, an album of a studio band doing Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds that was pretty darn good. Anyway, on another note, get it? When the group that made it famous compliments the artist(s), well...I stumbled onto this recently and thought WOW. Enjoy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFxOaDeJmXkJohn Henry
Hallelujah by Axel Rudi Pellhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKMP81DVLLk
This is a Stevie Ray Vaughn song from a cover band that does a very creditable job with a lot of different artists. Not the musical choices you'd really expect from three 20-something Irish gals. I found them from another post elsewhere on WG.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptpvxL7uxuU
This is one of my all-time favorites, Molly Hatchet covering Allman Brothers and I think even surpassing the original.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrtRucPEbsIThis is a Stevie Ray Vaughn song from a cover band that does a very creditable job with a lot of different artists.

I thought Commander Cody wrote the song, but I just looked it up and it is quite a bit older. I like (especially on road trips) Bill Kirchen's (live) version of 'Hot Rod Lincoln'. It is a lot of fun.But- "favorite" is going to depend on the day and the hour. I have a lot of favorite everything.
I saw Bill Kirchen do that a couple times in the 90's. Lotta fun.
Im not talking about "best" or Grammy winning- even if it is- but what's your favorite cover version of a song? There's a lot of music-oriented folks here and it's great to know what different people like and why.Stevie Ray Vaughn's cover of Voodo Chile on Austin City Limits is awesome and has been my favorite for a long time, but I think my favorite one is this cover of Tom Petty's "Southern Accent" by The Steel Woods- ]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7TNZyBPai5Q/]It's such a great and honest personal interpretation of a good song.Next...
Wow! I've gotta say Dea Matrona is my new favorite cover band. I searched online and couldn't find them covering Rory Gallagher, which seems like a glaring omission, I'm sure they could pull it off.
My favorite live cover band(along with their own songs) is Los Lobos. I think we have seen them a dozen plus times and they will always sneak in a cover. We saw them at The Republic in New Orleans and they did a cover of 20,000 Headmen that was just great. Their version of Shoot Out the Lights by Richard Thompson:https://youtu.be/kVqyCeSFRYwThey also have an album coming out on covers and a list of their tour: https://variety.com/2021/music/news/los-lobos-covers-album-los-angeles-listen-1234966943/
I am a massive Talking Heads fan, and I really enjoy this cover of Warning Sign by the LA band Local Natives. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFCTk7oPc2w
Well then we must mention Talking Heads cover of Take Me to the River Annie Lennox's version is pretty good too. -AJ
The entire Commitments movie and soundtrack is a treasure of great covers.-AJ
