Baker Street

Foo Fighters lead kicks ass compared to the lame 70's sax solo it is replacing!

Great cover, beautiful solo work.

The Foo Fighters did a fine job but nowhere near as good as the original. "Lame ass sax solo?" I can tell I'm the oldest person here. Which one will still be heard 30 years from now? Yep, Gerry Rafferty!

Foos version is one of their best covers. Their version simply rocks.

This song is great to begin with, but Foo makes this song rip w/o sax

I loved Gerry Rafferty's song way back, when I first heard it on the radio as a kid. However, Foo Fighters lend an edgy sound that makes me love the song even more.

I am a big fan of covers done well...U2 covering All Along the Watchtower does NOT count as a cover done well...Jimi's version DOES. Metallica covering Turn the Page kicks butt. And like this version of Baker Street, taking the song to a place it hasn't been before is the whole point of doing it. Both the original and the cover kick ass...they're just different flavors of the treat. Delicious.

The original is usually the best, eventhough the Foo Fighters did a top notch job! Saxophone > guitar

Love both, but i have an inbuilt hatred of all thing sax. great riff, the electric version does it for me
