10:23 pm - "The Man Who Sold the World"
...appears to be the most-covered song in my music collection: in addition to the 1970 David Bowie original version, I have covers by Lulu (1974), John Cougar Mellencamp (!) (1977), Midge Ure (1982), and the live version by Nirvana (1994).

John Cougar Mellencamp, mind you. Not John Mellencamp, not Johnny Cougar.  :-)

Wow. I need to hear the Mellencamp version. My instincts say it's got to be a trainwreck, but I am too curious to pass that up.

Ditto on that. I just can't reconcile John Cougar Mellencamp's style with the Bowie original (which is the only version I know).

Ow, my brain hurts just thinking about it.

"All along the Watchtower"

Dylan's "All along the Watchtower" seems to be what I have the most of. Strangely I don't have the original Dylan version. Then again, perhaps not that strange at all considering I don't really like him that much. I have Jimmy Hendrix, U2, Micheal Hedges, Indigo Girls, and Jeff Healey.

Apparently there is also a John Mellencamp version too :)

Re: "All along the Watchtower"

There's also a rather jerky/hiccup-y 1978 version of "All Along the Watchtower" by XTC, which is one of my favourite things. And no, I don't own the Dylan version either.  :-)
