It’s pretty difficult: take someone else’s song, and make it your own! It doesn’t mean the original isn’t great; just that when you think about the song, it’s the cover version you hear in your head. With that in mind…

The “Even Better Than the Real Thing” Menu: Johnny Winter – “Johnny B. Goode” (Chuck Berry)  /  Janis Joplin – “Me and Bobby McGee” (Kris Kristofferson) /  The Dave Clark Five – “Do You Love Me” (The Contours) / Joan Jett and the Blackhearts – “I Love Rock & Roll” (The Originals) /  Rod Stewart – “Downtown Train” (Tom Waits) /  Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – “Woodstock” (Joni Mitchell)   /  Santana – “Black Magic Woman” (Fleetwood Mac) /  Joe Cocker – “The Letter” (The BoxTops) /  The Beatles – “Twist and Shout” (The Isley Brothers) /  Nilsson – “Without You” (Badfinger) /  Three Dog Night – “Liar” (Argent) /  The Byrds – “Mr. Tambourine Man” (Bob Dylan) /  The Jimi Hendrix Experience – “All Along the Watchtower” (Bob Dylan)

Tomorrow (Finally Fry-day 11/22) your Blimp-diner will be serving up The “Speak First…” Menu: remembering that J.F.K. gave some of the best speeches ever, your lunch menu’s gonna be made up of classics that feature Spoken Word Intro’s; get ready to take notes because there may be a test on this next week…
