Many artists have covered this great song. But which one do you like the most?

I don't know, there have been a LOT and I didn't like many of them. Neil Young's version was pretty good.

I can't stand anyone else to do this song but him. Madonna's made me want to beat her with a stick. This song is SO beautiful. What you mean not great TK??

I mean it bores the hell out of me. I seriously skip it or turn the radio knob when it comes on. I realize its Johns anthem and all, but i'm just so burnt out on it that it doesnt give me any listening pleasure anymore. Its a good tune, but i'd much rather hear something a little more obscure if you know what i mean.

Totally agree.
Possibly the most overrated song ever.

eh, its a decent song. not the best but you have to remember, it spoke to a nation of confused teens in the 60s. but if anyone were to cover the song. id have to say U2 since they have done versions of his songs before and they do tend to stay with the original version better then other artists.

Doing it exactly the same as the original is pointless... people might as well listen to the first version.
