Cover vs. Original

David Watts


On behalf of my dear friend Bo Schött - Michael Caine of Bromma - I put in yet another Ray Davies-song in the contest. I know Bo will vote for Jam, but not me. The original version by Kinks is much better. Much more charm and nerve. My vote to the Muswell Hillbillies.

Yeah, the Jam version just doesn't do anything for me.

Yeah, yeah, Ray Davies is an icon, but THE JAM, baby!
