Every once in awhile I hear a song I like a great deal, which is what happened when I heard "I'm Your" by Jason Mraz, and I usually like seeing others takes on the song through covers, most are terrible, but the law of numbers means there are usually some very nice covers out there, and they are like dimes out of dozens thanks to sites like youtube.


But I thought this cover was particularly good

Not sure if he took too many licenses, but simply mimicking the original artist especially with those subtle riffs that made the entire song, was a treat to watch and most of all, hear.

trance lovers, the door is THAT way -->

Full disclosure: a major Stonesphile in my previous life. Seen 'em on three continents!

Nice. Finally a music thread.

I've gotten real into jazz over the past few years, so most of the "covers" I prefer are jazz interpretations of classics. As these things go, this is pretty amazing:

And NikiB, if you ever have the chance, these guys do a pretty killer Stones cover:
