Britney claims that "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" is one of her favoutite songs ever. I think she is right.V1 Comment
Although Clapton's version is more popular, I like the funky groove that J.J. Cale imparts to the song.
No way this could ever come anywhere near Simon & Garfunkel's rendering. It was written by Paul Simon for goodness sake!
Great cover, IMO better than the original- more rock sound -
Simply amazing... never thought Lil Wanye's version could be made better... The best song Framing Hanley's ever done! - JesusOfSuburbia07
How the hell is this song that low I mean it's better then the original needs to be higher - donovanthorn
That was certainly a cover I wasn't expecting. - NuMetalManiak
For the first time a cover is just as good as the original but in a different style. Both songs are great but I just like the singing solo in the original. Great song anyway.
It actually might be better than the who's version
I can't believe it's not on the list! The cover is so much better than the original, after listening to this version I finally understood what is the song about.
Way better than the original! Much more sad and dramatic than The Beatles version. Ray Charles really expresses the meaning of the lyrics. - saaarsdej
