Amazing, as a transformative version of Black Sabbath:

You can actually understand the lyrics.

As an historical artifact rather than a favorite, Pat Boone(!) Smoke on the Water from “In a Metal Mood” (1997) – this album more or less invented the retro cover genre.

This style is now seen in Postmodern Jukebox, Puddles Pity Party, and more:

That was nice, @Jaethan. Made me go back and listen to the original.

@generic, the Pat Boone was interesting. But here’s my idea of a retro cover :wink:

Original written by Harold Arlen, words by Ted Koehler. First performed by Cab Calloway, in 1932 at the Cotton Club. Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald also did covers, but I really like this one by Sara Vaughn with a sneaky piano line by Oscar Peterson.

I don’t know who the original artist is. Hans does my favorite version of it.

With Hugh having a good version too.
