Cover vs. Original

American Woman


Both are good songs but I tend to prefer the Kravitz version. The intended distortion at the end gets a little annoying, but it still rocks more than the original.

Srry Lenny Kravitz but the guess who version is alot more better then you man you really suck people like you should get sued for copy writting the original version should stay and copy writes should go.

The Guess Who is the best version.

The Guess Who definitely has this one. I agree with mark though, you should compare it to Krokus's version, that one's great too.

Covers are great when an artist reinterprets a song makes you hear it in a different way. Sooo not so in this case. Hardly an original note. He just reminds us how good the original was.
