    Erma Franklin - Piece Of My Heart

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Erma wrote the song and recorded it first.

    Sorry Janis!

  • it says songs covered - not which was done first. I know the janis one is second but Erma's is way better than JJ's which to most, is the better known joint.

    Spanky Wilson - Sunshine of your love This version is just so fucking on point.
    The Sonics - Money (Thats what I want) Its not Barret Strong but its a great version
    Dayton Sidewinders - Slippin into Darkness I don't even care for War's version of this song.

    G*****s, I hear you dude, but I think the thread is asking what COVERS are your favorite.

  • the title of the thread says "Songs redone/covered? What's your favorite?" and Piece of my Heart was covered....

    I meant what is your favorite cover - but I was afraid if I just stated that - then dudes would be posting an actual album cover and not a song? I had to rewrite the topic name six time before I could even understand it
