Yep, I love the way she sang it. She gave the song some emotional depth where the original is a cool song but it could be about anything as the emphasis is on the groove rather than the lyrical content.
I typically find that acoustic covers are often far, far, far worse than the original. Nothing worse than some whining hippy/hipster taking all the life out of a great song by getting out the ol' acoustic gee-tar.
I love Otis, but his version of Satisfaction is garbage.
When I think of Otis and cover versions, ?I always think how Aretha Franklin took Respect which was a pretty average Otis song and turned it into a masterpiece. I also think of Michael Bolton ruining Dock of the Bay
Anyone seen the Rock of Ages broadway show (not the Tom Cruise movie)?
Quite a lot of their covers are much better than the original songs. For example I prefer "Waiting For A Girl Like You" to be sung as a duet in which the broadway shows does than the original by Foreigner.
If you're a big fan of 80s rock, I suggest you download the broadway album.
