    Cream for Spoonful and The Doors for Back Door Man would be the biggest ones.

    Howlin Wolf - Spoonful

    Ah yes now that i hear it of course I recognise the doors cover. Not the cream one though. Am I allowed to say I prefer both these covers to the original. Ive been doing this all wrong. most of my noms i much prefer the covers.

    Well there was a dance version that was fairly popular in the early Noughties I think

    Bruce and 10,000 maniacs also

    Missed the first few as usual, and then arrive in for a tough decision, as all 3 songs here are worthy of my vote, and a particularly tough call between Jimmy Webb and Patti Smith...

    By a nose hair, I'll go with...

    Jimmy Webb - The Highwayman

    Patti Smith - Because The Night

    Jimmy Webb - The Highwayman though I wouldn't mind if Patti Smith gets through either.

    There was the Co.Ro version in the Nineties, and I think Cascada also covered it during the Noughties + the MTV Unplugged version of 10000 Maniacs which was very good. There was also a cover from Garbage a few years back, not sure if it was ever released properly though.

    I will also vote for Because The Night, such an iconic song

    Same 4 me. Not as good as the Highwaymen version but a good song nonetheless.
