Happy Monday! Chris Miles here and I hope you are staying warm tonight.

Today’s unscientific question takes us to the land of what I would call the ultimate compliment. What do I mean by that? I taking about a cover song. Why is that the ultimate compliment? To me it seems like an excellent way to let a band know you love their song.  Call me crazy but there has to be some great backstories there.

Take my favorite cover song for example: “I Love Rock N Roll” By Joan Jett. Did you know it is not her original song? Tis true, Alan Merrill wrote it in 1975 and recorded it with his band Arrows.

Here is my top five:

  1. “I Love Rock N Roll” by Joan Jett
  2. “Time is On My Side” – The Rolling Stones
  3. “King Of Pain” Alanis Morissette
  4. “Cocaine” – Eric Clapton
  5. “Got To Get You Into MY Life” By Earth Wind And Fire


All right, I showed you mine and you show me yours. What cover songs made your top five list? Let me know in the comments below.
