I am creating a playlist of original and cover back to back. I only want songs I know both the cover and original already and are consistant with my taste. The exception would be where many people think the cover is the original, like "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" by Joan Baez covered by Led Zeppelin. Here is what I have so far, in no particular order. I am looking for quality over quantity. Thanks.

Hey 3dogs... lookin at your list of music, you might dig this tune:

I Put a Spell On You - Screamin Jay Hawkins (1956)

I Put a Spell On You - Nina Simone (1965)

It was also recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival among other classic rock bands

as well as Natacha Atlas who did a world beat version that is excellent.
