The Band - The Weight
I've been listening to this song for over a week, virtually non-stop.
I've never really been a big fan of cover-versions of songs - more often than not, they completely suck
- but this song has been covered a few times, and whilst they're all the same - they're all different. Some of them I don't like, but there are 4 versions that I love, and I've been listening to them constantly for nearly 2 weeks - and I can't stop! The Band

albums.Jimmy Barnes with The Badloves
- Australian singer Jimmy Barnes recorded a cover album years back: "Double Happiness"
, featuring a bunch of other artists - this was one of them, and it's bloody awesome.
