Top 10 Favorite Cover Songs

It’s no secret I love my bands!  I think that in some cases their covers of these songs rival the originals.  Here is the list of my top 10 favorite songs that they cover.

10. Shambala by Three Dog Night

I have seen these guys at a couple of festivals and boy, they can still rock after all these years!!

9. Born On The Bayou by Creedence Clearwater Revival

When Mobius Jones and Day Ja Voo get together to play this song, it’s beyond amazing!! All I have to hear are the first few guitar riffs and I am in heaven.

8. Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers

Bill Withers does a terrific job with this song, but Bryan does it he is so soulful!!

7. Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash

The Man in Black played the NYS Fairgrounds in 1959; it was my Mom’s first concert! Both of the bands play this and it is a crowd favorite, especially with the moms!

6.   Daisy Jane by America

Day Ja Voo does a lot of America (at least six of their hits).  So much more America than you ever even knew existed. Then when Bryan joined the band, they started another one, and it’s one of my favorites!

5.  Love The One You’re With by Stephen Stills

I met Stephen Stills once at Barnes & Noble.  That is not what I like about him.  This song is what i like about him.  The version here is by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

4.  Sweet Home Alabama/Werewolves of London  Lynyrd Skynyrd, Warren Zevon

This is cheating a bit, putting two of them together, but Mobius Jones performs these two songs as a mashup and it really works.  I had never even heard of Warren Zevon before I met Bridgette Plessas!

3.   Come Sail Away by Styx

A recent addition to the set list, it is both rock ballad and rock anthem!!

2.  Roll With The Changes by REO Speedwagon.

What great lyrics, “If you’re tired of the same old story, turn some pages.”  Music to a bookseller’s ears!

1. Already Gone by The Eagles

Hands down, this is one of my all time favorite songs!  The guys in both Day Ja Voo and Mobius Jones have been learning this song for me, and the key change is not easy!! So oftentimes it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key.
