FNM: Covers - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

(Can I start a Friday Night Music? I guess so - I just did)

Rules: It has to have something to do with covers. In the title, please note the name of the song, the cover artist, or the original artist ? or any combination thereof, and whether it is good, bad, or ugly (or something else). Make your own specific rules, but it must be related to covers. Sub-threads can go anywhere.

If you don't know, a cover is a song performed by one artist that was originally written and/or recorded by another.

I'll start several and just see where goes.

(Bad and Funny)

It cracked me up to see that Lawrence Welk thought this was a Modern Spiritual tune!

Myron Floren, the accordion player who introduced the song, seemed like he knew what it was really about and was trying to keep from cracking up himself.
