A lot of great songs or not so great songs have been covered. Some of the covers were really good and some were so-so at best. This is an example of where I think the cover is better than the original.

The original

"]YouTube- Donovan - Season of the Witch



The cover

"]YouTube- Vanilla Fudge - Season Of The Witch


Can you think of any?

While I love the original by Jimmy Ruffin, Joan Osborne owns this song now. Having the Funk Brothers as back up is a bonus.

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

Original is by Gary Wright and the remake is by Joan Osborne. Lady has a way of making it hers.

I loved this song when Bruce Hornsby did it but after hearing Pam Tillis do it, I like that cover better.
