I wrote a while ago about my love/hate relationship with cover songs. And just a moment ago, I heard a song that in my mind, unmistakably belonged to my dear Dolly Parton. In fact, as it was on her White Limozeen album that served as my first introduction to Dolly, it's a song I hold near and dear to my heart. Imagine my surprise when I found out SHE was covering REO Speedwagon! Really, I didn't know. I don't know everything, people. Here are the two versions. I vote Dolly. But of course, that's a given.
I also remembered another "classic" cover over the weekend that I failed to leave off of my list of favorites.
