    Awwright!

    Gotta go with Mr. Basketball Diaries, Jim Carroll band.  Great album, too.

    You remember this ill-fated thread. That is impressive.
    I just learned last week this isn't an original Cyndi Lauper song.  Mr Hazard wrote it more as a warning, Lauper turned it into an anthem.

    News to me!  Hazard's song done by himself sounds kind of cool but I'd have to go with Ms Lauper if for no other reason than I always dug watching her on TV.

    Hoping some others chime in here.

    I never knew Cyndi's version was a cover. Great choice, Malroth. Like brianlux, I'm going with Cyndi's version.

    I remembered this thread, because it was a great idea. ;) Unfortunately, I got depressed after listening to the first song three times, and called it a day. Lol

    Motorhead for me.

    Guns 'n Roses lost me at the start with Axl imitating Mick's OWWW!!

    Jane's addiction- far from my favorite Perry vocals. 

    Good picks though!

    I liked the live performance by Richie Havens best as well.

    Richie Haven's- love it!

    "Mama's Don't Let Your Babies..." its such a great Willie and Waylon song that it's hard to imagine liking any other version but Karen O's version is just gorgeous and kind of heart breaking.

    Edit:  I always attributed that song to  Willie and Waylon but now I see it was written by Ed and Patsy Bruce and first recorded by Ed Bruce.  So I guess Willie and Waylon's recording is a cover as well!

    I didn't post Willie & Waylon's cover, because I thought that would be an easy choice for everyone. That one would absolutely have to be the winner, right?
    When I listened to Karen O.'s version, I was pleasantly surprised. "Gorgeous and kind of heart breaking" is a great way to describe it. I ended up on Spotify playing her music for the better part of the day. 

    I have to admit, I didn't listen to the original after discovering Willie and Waylon's version was a cover. Maybe we can post those two in the future.

    A blues classic, Willie Dixon's "I Can't Quit You Baby". 
    John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers (with Mick Taylor):

    or Led Zeppelin:

    I like the Mayall Taylor version better. I perceive more passion in the voice.

    With all due respect to Led Zeppelin I've got to say... :plus_one:  ...to the Mayall/Taylor  version as well!

    Here's the great live version.  Sound quality is poor because it was recorded on Mayall portable tape player, but a great performance.  Taylor's solo here and some of his other work on the album are just amazing.

    Like both, going with the second mainly because I understood the lyrics clearer.
    Never even heard the original before now. Thanks.

    If you get a chance, check out their Explosions in the Glass Palace album.  It's easily in my top 20 favorite albums:
