What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Tell them a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call

I am not normally a fan of covers, but I love this version of White Rabbit. In some ways, I think it's superior to the original with Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick.

I was all prepared to turn up my nose at this, but you're right - it's really well done.

I agree, it's an excellent cover. There's a Settle band called Spike & the Impalers that does an awesome cover of Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love."

Gristle, I heard this on a Fresh Air episode and was impressed enough that I spend money on that recording. Yea, I really don't like remakes. I think there's about a handful that I can listen to.

Vince, I'll have to check that out.

Oh, and I think you meant Queen's "Somebody to Love".
