I was a huge INXS fan, still love there music but the cover version by Grinspoon is very good, a little bit "heavier" than the original but pretty good version.

9.0 Shocking Blue

Dead Heat for the Hush versions
Both 9.1

Doesn't matter which song gets #1 honours in the various greatest rock song of all time lists. It does vary over the years.

But this is definitely in the top #5. No debate from me.
Probably in my top 3.

If Jimmy and Bob give it a standing ovation, I ain't gonna argue with that.

Higher Ground
8.8 Red Hot Chilli Peppers
7.0 Stevie Wonder

I usually like originals better than covers
This is a rare exception , RHCP play it heavier than Stevie

Under The Bridge
Is arguably he RHCP greatest songs

RHCP lead singer Anthony Kiedis' autobiography is an account of "over indulgent rock star" at it's finest.

Harrowing, entertaining, scary and sad it is an excellent read.

Judy Garland, 1938 (legendary)

Billy Thorpe ...1974 ... better than the first release
Sam Harris...1983... this bloke belts it out, very good version


Eleanor Parker miming to the voice of Eileen Farrell
In the movie Interrupted Melody [1955]
Farrell sings it impressively in a high voice
On par with Garlands  legendary version
But I still reckon Thorpeys version is the best I've heard

FEELINGS

8-7 Morris Albert
7.0 Offspring

As a rule In would listen to Offspring than Morris Albert
Morris does this song better
Offsprings version is so so different

Have you heard Ritchie Blackmore's version Scrappy?
It's at the start of his 1975 live album.

It wasn't sung, just an instrumental version at the very start of his live (Rainbow) concert.

Heavy metal as you would expect.

YOU DONT OWN ME
9.0 Leslie Gore [1963]
9.2 Grace [2015]

Heard the Grace version today
Absolutely a brilliant cover

Grace is only 17
Gore was only 16 when she had a hit with this great great song

Leslie Gore died earlier this year
If Grace ends up anywhere near as good as Gore, she will make it BIG time

IM A BELIEVER
9.3 The Monkees [1966]
7.3 Smash Mouth [2001]

Smash Mouth cover version OK, but the original by The Monkees is a gem
