I think they're equal but the Devo version is hella more danceable.

Any song Devo covers is just better by default.

I'm thinking I like it as it's different to the rest.......



it goes like this...

we have disagreement here. Chris Hillman still insists that Gram wrote this (it is more of a Parsons song than Keith). Parsons was drunk as usual and Keith was listening to him playing this tune on the piano. When Hillman told Gram that the Stones had stolen his song, Gram just smiled and said it was an honor to be ripped off by Mick & Keith. Now, that's either truth or legend. Gram's version is still definitive.

the acoustic version of the Orignal is good...



lot of choice there....

Tristam - Bone Dry (Piano Cover) Can't remember the specific name of the cover artist but it doesn't seem it will matter much.
