Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I love both versions. The lead singer for The Box Tops has such a cool raspy voice. And I love how Joe Cocker puts his own individual stamp on each and every song that he does a cover of.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I agree 👍

Johnny does my favorite version of this song.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

Oh my! I don't believe I have ever heard so many covers of this song!
In fact, I can only remember Albert Hammond.
Nancy Sinatra

Guy playing guitar on the Nancy Sinatra version totally crushes it. And I love the Johnny Mathis version of this song.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I think I still like the Hollies version a bit better.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

The Hollies version has a much better guitar riff and more punch, so I agree with you on that one.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….



This is hysterical!

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I like the Lemonheads!
Once again, Frank should have left it alone…

Yeah, Frank's style doesn't work for Mrs. Robinson at all.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I confess that I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw Roth do that on MTV back in the 80s. Not bad, but it's still a Beach Boys song to me.

Diamond Dave's video helped me get through puberty back in the 1980's. And that's all I'm gonna say on that one.

Sorry about this one. She definitely kills it on this song, but just not in a good way.


Yes, this is really me.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

These days, this song now reminds me of Evelyn in Two and a Half Men.

Check her out at around 2:20 into the scene…

It's a favorite Bobbie Gentry song. I'm quite partial to Reba's sassy rendition of it.

Dr. John, baby!

Re: OVER THE YEARS….





Couldn't resist sharing this.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….



The Sinatras really have to lay off of doing covers of certain songs. At least the guy on flamenco guitar comes through with some tasty licks.


Yes, this is really me.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

Agreed!

Got a thing going on with Mrs. Jones.

Not even Hall & Oates could resist the charms of Mrs. Jones.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I didn't even know that there were so many covers of this. I will have to take some time and give them all a listen!
