    IMHO this is the greatest cover ever since this artist made it his signature song though he didn't write it. This is the song that made JMH the legend.

    The wiki link says "The Leaves" did the earliest known recording . . . and here it is. It sounds a LOT different than Jimi's version. I like Jimi's much better. :smile:

    Jubyphonic is a youtaite, or a person that covers Japanese songs on youtube. She actually recently went "pro" in the sense that she's trying to raise money up to become a singer full time. I don't know much about Yim but I do like his songs.

    Did you know that Jimi Hendrix and also The Beatles did covers to that one too? It's a great song.

    It sounds like The Beatles were messing around a bit. Lol.

    I can't for the life of me figure out which of the Beatles is singing here. Is it Paul? [​IMG]

    Well, even though I've never heard of them and I'm not very familiar with the Japanese music scene, I appreciate your participation and I'm always interested in hearing new music, so thanks. :smile:

    No problem. I like it when these kinds of threads start up. It's a great way to meet people and talk to others about something other then politics. I hope your thread takes off.

    House of the Rising Sun is a VERY old song apparently. After doing some research, although people think The Animals performed the original, that is not the case. Here is a recording from 1937 (yikes!) by a woman named Georgia Turner. Interesting, right? :smile:

    No music here, just singing.

    One more before I have to get back to work. :mrgreen:

    The original by Velvet Underground

    [video=youtube;uiBvnbntiW8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiBvnbntiW8[/video]

    The cover by Cowboy Junkies . . . I think I like the cover better. Margo Timmins has a hauntingly beautiful voice.

    These girls from Mexico are fantastic. Yes their voices are no match against the raw sound of the original however, at 3:29 the "prayer" in the song has a ingenious approach. The instrumentals on the other hand can not be discerned from the original, "Enter Sandman".

    AND, for being Spanish speakers, the mastery of the English language is phenomenal.
