Occasionally I enjoy listening to other artists/bands cover songs. Sometimes I wonder which version is better, the original or the remakes?

I do like the Animals version. But for me personally I have heard FFDP so many times I prefer that version.

Here my rank preference.

  1. FFDP
  2. The Animals
  3. Dolly Parton
  4. Jody Miller

Just an observation - if you search "who did it best" or "WDIB", there's about 20 threads. But I don't think any of them cover this song.

Of the dozens of versions I came across, I like these 2:

Muse

This is my favorite, by The White Buffalo, as heard on the Sons of Anarchy season 4 finale

When I did a search, I used cover songs. I didn't think of samples and now I see all the "Who Did It Best" threads back in 2016.

See that why I been out of this music loop for quite a few years now.

With your two additions songs, I like the Muse version. White Buffalo is alright, but not digging it.

I also see back in the past there are Top 5 and Music Challenge threads.

Maybe some of these old music games threads could try and make a come back?

In April 1970 a version of The House Of The Rising Sun by Frijid Pink, a Detroit quartet, reached #7 nationally and #15 on the KHJ Boss 30 here in Los Angeles. And before anyone tells me "We have a thread for that," please know that this thread is it.
