Pete Fairless… Oh, we’re voting for one from their list, are we? There are three or four, i’d vote for… Can I nominate Ruby Tuesday by Melanie or Manfred Mann Do Wah Diddy.
Andy Qunta… Here are a couple that would get my vote – Bob Dylan’s All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix Experience, & Bruce Springsteen’s Blinded By The Light, by Manfred Mann’s Earthband.
Alan Esdaile… Agree with Pete, why do they give us a list, can’t we just come up with our own suggestions? From this list I love Urge Overkill – Girl You’re Be A Woman Soon.
John Wilde… Jimi Hendrix cover of Bob Dylans All along the Watchtower.
Phil Thorton… yes, what John said !
Jennie Tocock… Yes, definitely what John said!!
Yvonne Cleland… Couldn’t decide between that and Joe Cocker…
John Storer… Pretty much all the usual suspect, but really? Nirvana’s “The Man Who Sold The World”? Better than Lulu’s version? I think not! Two of my favourite’s are not on the list: Creedence Clearwater Revival’s epic version of “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” and “I’m A Man” – Chicago Transit Authority. I voted for Marvin Gaye, by the way …
Lauren Gower… Hurt by Johnny Cash x
Chris Baker… Surely the worst must be Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by Capt. Kirk!
Tony May… Cashmere – Tracks Of My Tears but of the one’s selected via the link I went with The Isley Brothers but it was a very tough choice.
Results just in….
The top 10 tracks in the vote are as follows:
Pet Shop Boys – Always On My Mind
Johnny Cash – Hurt
The Stranglers – Walk On By
Jimi Hendrix – All Along The Watchtower
Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah
Soft Cell – Tainted Love
Joe Cocker – With A Little Help From My Friends
Sinead O’Connor – Nothing Compares 2 U
Muse – Feeling Good
Whitney Houston – I Will Always Love You
Alan Esdaile… What this is crazy – Pet Shop Boys!
Redstar Richter… yeah – why not?
Andy Gunton… There were only 50 choices by the looks of it, hardly a complete poll.
Will Cornell… That cover of “Girl Don’t Tell Me” you posted by Tony Rivers was way better (and btw, I’d never heard of him until you posted it!)
