Another example of an artist covering a song that they've written. It's a very big call, but I think this is better than Mr. Big's version by a whisker.

I was lucky enough to grow up listening to music from all eras. There's heaps of shit I love from the 50's and 60's. Del Shannon was often played when I was little and i've always loved "Runaway". This pure AOR version from Forcefield is a ripper.

With Eurovision coming up I thought i'd post an ABBA cover. There have been many Hard Rock/Metal covers of ABBA songs, but i've never really cared for any of them. This one however, is great and of the best covers I've heard in general. The youtube videos for the great Sargant Fury album "Little Fish" have incorrect titles, so disregard that. As you've probably realized from the first video, the song is called "Eagle".

Don't know if we did this one, but back in the day it was our jam for sure.

My opinion has always been that if you cover a track you have to copy it note for note or rework it completely. These guys have gone for the latter. I could see Dokken doing a version something like this. It would have made a nice addition to their "One Live Night" album.

Yeah, that's a great version of a great track, but i've always preferred Keel's version.

Nice Boys ( don't play rock 'n' roll) covered by Guns "n" Roses , the Rose Tattoo's song. Pete Wells was horrified when he heard the Gunners version, he want to changed the song to " Nancy boys ( don't play rock "n" Roll ).
