Thread: Does this move you?

    I'm assuming the people that will comment on this will consist of the following:

    1. People that actually know the history of both Gram and this song.
    2. People that know the song from the radio.

    At first I did too. Now, not so much. I prefer Gram's version.

    ==============================================

    Grahm is/was an eco freak, was part of the no nukes movement of the late 70s, he came to Portland to preach the evils of nuclear power back in the day.

    I do love the song, prefer it over the Stones 7 days a week.

    Great cover. However, in this case I do prefer the Stones. But Townes was great.

    Don't like it. My garage band did a better version. (No offense.)

    I like Gram and the FBB - but most Stones covers (w/ the notable exception of Devo's "Satisfaction") usually fall short.

    This.

    That said, the Crowes do a nice job on CYHMK.

    the Whistling Walruz on vocals and Chance the cat playing the air guitar would do a better version.

    No, I'm still sitting in my chair, the same as I was 6 minutes ago, yet now I'm wishing I had those 6 minutes back.
