There are many cover songs out there that have eclipsed or completely re-contextualized the original recordings on which they are based. This mix gathers together many such "killer covers," from Jimi Hendrix's rendition of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" to Aretha Franklin's "Respect" (which Otis Redding actually recorded first) to Nouvelle Vague's acoustic version of Blondie's "Heart of Glass."
