Brass Neck says:
Nominate a track from any era which was recorded and released by another artist/band prior to the version you have chosen. This rules out songs written by the likes of say the Brill Building songwriters who churned out tunes that were recorded by other artists or bands but never by the writers. Once you've decided on a song it may be helpful to Google the title to see if there's a history of its recording and releases to verify its eligibility. Nominations close around 6pm Monday (I meant Friday of course)

Originally JJ Cale

Cocaine - Eric Clapton

Spacepig : John Barleycorn is a very old (medieval?) folksong so I suppose all versions are covers!

This is a cover of Labi Sifre's 'Bless The Telephone', don't know why he renamed it. I really like both versions.

Why he renamed it? Probably because 'Bless the Telephone' is one of the daftest song titles ever.

Nice song though and Foe's nom is a very fine version imo.
