    two black cadillacs by carrie underwood, one of a small handful of "revenge" songs by her. its interesting to me, in so much as I can tell anyhow, that no one ever decries them. same with books, and movies too.

    danik, if youre up for the looking, im hoping to set you on a house of the rising sun listening mini-marathon!

    given youre from brazil, you might like santa Esmerelda's version

    and then there's josh Halverson and kylie rothfield's live version from the 2016 season of the voice

    also Kimberly nichole's live version from the voice, very different from the above

    white buffalo and the forest ranger

    lauren O'Connell from American horror story 3

    frijid pink--first heard a few strains of this one in the movie remember the titans, its more rock with some distortion. I love the beginning

    the eagles--a pretty nifty acoustic version

    joan baez (of course)

    bob Dylan (of course)

    and if you are really motivated and having a great time, there's even Russian version floating around out there.

    Thanks, bounty, I'll listen to all of them. But it will be difficult to displace my beloved Joan Baez.

    Moon River Frank Sinatra (another favorite. Probably has several versions, too)

    i think my favorite of the bunch danik is the instrumental by the eagles. followed by Kimberly nichole's version. if you hunt up the ones from "the voice" make sure you get the live versions. the studio ones are never as good.

    if I had to guess, id say that most cover versions of moon river are probably very close to the original. in this instance, the house of the rising sun covers are all pretty different from the original, in some cases wildly so.

    Just listened to some renderings of The House of the Rising Sun. They are all interesting but Joan´s is the most dramatic.

    I can see her version playing well at the end of some dramatic movie with a really sad ending as the screen turns to black and the credits start to roll...

    are you familiar with her version of the night they drove ol' dixie down?

    father and son a song by cat stevens I hadn't heard until I watched guardians of the galaxy 2
