There's a fair collection of gems on this thread :)

Yeah, I always felt that I *should* like Bawb, but Hurricane is the only one that I enjoy musically. That makes him a great songwriter to cover, whereas covering the Dan or Joni is not for the faint-hearted.

Another lyric that really got me was the Indigo Girls's Closer to Fine:
And I went to see the doctor of philosophy
With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee
He never did marry or see a B-grade movie
He graded my performance, he said he could see through me
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
Got my paper and I was free.
