Cover vs. Original

The Letter

The Box Tops scored their first hit with the song "The Letter", but Joe Cocker made it an international hit when he spruced it up with his English - Soul vocal styling. Joe Cocker's version was the first I ever heard and was moved by, but it is just a well crafted song, making the original stand up in its simplicity.

No offense, but I can't stand any of Joe Cocker's covers.
On top of that, the original is one of my favorite songs.
