    I like this version better than any of the Lizards' versions I've heard

    I just watched the "Spiderhead" Trailer, which features a song by Rotary Connection (I am the Black Gold of The Sun, which is a spectacle of a song).

    I've always had a fascination with this Cream song, as it is so weirdly and simply constructed and such atypical subject matter for a popular song. I think this version benefits from an extra layer of 60s psychedelic weirdness. Just a couple of minor little stylistic tweaks, and "professional" singers.



    I would say I'm kind of transfixed by Rotary Connection more so than liking them, but I like their version of this song.

    The original for comparison:

    This is a gem. The 3rd verse when she joins him in the choreo made me smile.

    There is/was a game show in the UK where the contestants had to guess what song he was doing. They'd have earphones on where they couldn't hear the music and had to go with his interpretation.

    Amongst the other awesome instruments, I really want Robbie Robertson's guitar. A-hole that he is.

    Did you see the Zeppelin one? Whoa. I've posted it about 7 times because it's that ****ing cool.
