Re: Top ten best ever cover songs
I should add that if I was to play all of the ones I mentioned as a set I'd need to be carried off in a stretcher. I'd not heard of The Gap Band number. Very Prince-y keyboard sound.
Agree with Strangelove that Highway Star's a helluva tough cover. That's why every man and his dog covered Smoke on the Water and Space Truckin' in the 70s :)
