Worst Cover

And today's award goes to...
Sheryl Crow, for her cover of Cat Stevens' tender love song "The First Cut is the Deepest." Crow takes a beautiful song of longing, inquiry, and youth, and turns it into a cheeseball rock ballad. Crow had competition, though. Counting Crows' "Big Yellow Taxi" came on my radio today as well. Personally, if I want to hear "Big Yellow Taxi" covered by anyone, I turn to Bob Dylan's studio warmup version released in '73.
