My Top 10 Favourite Cover Songs

Whilst watching the John Mayer live blu-ray ‘Where The Light Is’ John mid way through blasts into an incredible cover of ‘Free Falling’ by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. This brought up the idea of writing a short ‘top 10 covers’ list (of my personal choice). So here it is.

In no order (apart from no.1, 2 & 3)

10 – Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley (originally by Leonard Cohen)
9 – With A Little Help From My Friends by Joe Cocker (originally by The Beatles)
8 – Twist & Shout by The Beatles (originally by The Isley Brothers)
7 – Fire by Red Hot Chilli Peppers (originally by Jimi Hendrix)
6 – Pressure Drop by The Specials (originally by Toots and the Maytals)
5 – Drive by Deftones (originally by The Cars)
4 – Free Fallin’ by John Mayer (originally by Tom Petty)
3 – Where Did You Sleep Last Night by Nirvana (originally by Lead Belly)
2 – All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix (originally by Bob Dylan)
1 – Hurt by Johnny Cash (originally by Nine Inch Nails)
